Toll Free Services

Service Description

Toll Free Access Numbers
Toll free 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). Note – phone companies do not differentiate between toll free numbers that are dialed from a local area versus ones that are dialed from far away, as such both calls are billed at the same rate. Toll free numbers can be set to ring to nearly any phone number on campus.
