STERLING, Va. -- February 7, 2013

Today, the North American Portability Management LLC, a telecommunications
industry consortium, publicly released its request for proposal for the
selection of the next Local Number Portability Administrator (LNPA). Steve
Edwards, Neustar’s senior vice president for Carrier Services, released the
following statement:

“Neustar is pleased that the LNPA selection process is underway and applauds
the efforts of the industry, the North American Numbering Council and the
FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau for their careful consideration of the
public comments and for the final RFP. In particular, we support the RFP’s
strong neutrality requirements and the fact that there is no requirement to
submit untested regional-based models. We believe the RFP will generate
proposals that are in the best interest of the industry and consumers.

“Neustar manages the most complex and comprehensive number portability service
in the world. We are confident that our proven track record over the last 15
years will speak for itself.”

Proposals are to be submitted no later than April 5, 2013. The recommendation
by the North American Portability Management LLC’s subcommittee for the
selection of the LNPA is expected by August 5, 2013, with FCC approval of the
LNPA selection expected to be completed by September 20, 2013. These dates are
subject to change. The new NPAC contract is scheduled to take effect in July
