Long Distance Services

Since the break-up of AT&T, there have been many choices for long distance service. Besides AT&T, MCI, and Sprint, a host of smaller, regional long-distance companies market themselves to specific parts of the country. These services may or may not have their own long distance networks. In many cases, they purchase blocks of long distance time from a common telephone carrier and then resell that time to small businesses and individuals.

Toll-Free Numbers

One long distance service can benefit your company's customers: an 800 number, often called a "watts" line. As the owner of an 800 number, your company pays for all incoming long distance charges. A toll-free number is an expense, true, but it's more than just a convenience for your distant customers. It can be a selling point in whether your company makes the first sale at all.
