New Unified Phone Rate Includes Long Distance, Softphone and More for All UW Campuses

Beginning July 12015, UW-IT will initiate a new unified phone rate including basic telephone service, a handset, voicemail, and unlimited local and U.S./Canada long-distance calling for $8.70 per line per month. Though it’s a $0.53 increase for those currently paying for basic phone service and telephones, it includes long-distance calling, which will no longer be billed separately. UW-IT will transition away from UW-provided international long distance altogether, allowing customers to obtain vendor-provided pre-paid calling cards. For more information, see the Phone Rate and Long Distance FAQs.
