Interesting story, which ties in with why Canada and the Caribbean have NPA-NXX phone numbers. Pre-NANP, the Caribbean phone systems basically hung off the Canadian system via cables through Bermuda and Halifax, Nova Scotia. Cable & Wireless ran the whole thing like they still do (:-0)

When Canada joined the NANP area, the Caribbean had to either join as well or renumber everything.
