How much less? In this example using Tel3's highest rate:
Tel3 = $15.66 vs. major carrier = $44.79 per month for 9 hours of long distance.

NOTE: We used the Tel3Advantage highest rate of 2.9 cents/minute to make this comparison; you can save even more. Many people will be able to use the lower 1.9 cents/minute rate so we estimate an average of $8 (5hrs) - $16 (10hrs) for an average user.
In this example, Tel3 costs almost $360 less a year.




Here is the detail of the major long distance company's plan:

Marketed as a 4 a minute plan anytime, the cost of many if not most calls is in fact 7 - 14. In addition you must switch carriers, sign a year long contract plus there is a $6.99 monthly fee plus taxes and surcharges. There is even a $24.99 charge for early cancellation!! WOW!

Here are the details from a major carrier as of Dec. 30, 2004.

State to state calls are 4 a minute, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Monthly fee of $6.99 plus taxes and surcharges.

12 month term contract required. $24.99 early cancellation fee applies.

For the 212, New York City Area code the following additional rates applied:
-- 7 a minute for local toll calls or sometimes known as local long distance.
-- 14 a minute for instate calls.

WHEN YOU CRUNCH THE NUMBER HERE IS THE BIG DIFFERENCE:

Lets say you talk 2 hours a week long distance and half of that is instate. How do the two plans compare for a monthly charge?

Tel3 flat rate prepaid long distance at the highest 2.9 rate is:
-- $15.66 cents

This major carrier's plan for the same calls is
$10.80 for state to state telephone calls
$27.00 for local toll calls and instate calls
$6.99 monthly fee
===============
-- 44.79 plus additional taxes, surcharges as much as an addional 10%

PLEASE NOTE: This does not include any phone calls charged to this account with the company's phone card which can add many dollars more to the bill even for a few calls.
