Effective July 1: UWATS Codes No Longer Needed for Domestic Long Distance Calls

Reminder: As of July 1, UW-IT will not bill for long distance calls to the U.S. and Canada, and you will not need to enter a UWATS code for these calls. If you have a fax machine with a UWATS code programmed into it, be sure to change the programming. The UW’s new unified phone rate includes basic telephone service, a handset, voicemail, and unlimited local and U.S./Canada long-distance calling for $8.70 per line per month. For details, see the Phone Rate and Long Distance FAQs. For international long distance, excluding Canada, you may continue to use your UWATS code or direct dial capability while UW-IT explores options and transitions that service in the upcoming academic year.
