Toll Free Services

Service Description

Toll free access numbers allow callers to place long distance calls without having to the pay the normal long distance per minute rate for the call. Instead the owner of the toll free number agrees to pay the long distance charges (reverse billing). Toll free numbers can be set to ring to nearly any phone number on campus.

Note – toll free numbers are billed at the same rate, regardless of originating location (local, national, or international).
