New AT&T 800 Service

New AT&T 800 Service

Post by dqu.. » Sat, 14 Sep 1991 03:27:50

On August 1, 1991, AT&T filed a new toll-free 800 service called AT&T
is an inbound toll free switched-access service that, like 800
READYLINE, will terminate on an existing Plain Old Telephone Service
(POTS) line.

 - The 30 minute AT&T 800 Assurance Policy is inherent in AT&T

 - Directory Assistance is available with AT&T 800.

 - Billing in 6second increments.

Billing and Pricing:  MONTHLY SERVICE CHARGES 6.00
                      NON-RECURRING CHARGES  30.00    
                      Approximatly 30-31 cents per minute.


1. C & W 800 Service vs. Sprint 800 Service

Sprint:  800 877 4646
Signup fee: Was $0 for a while.  I think you can talk them into
waiving the 'official' signup fee if you try.  Say some nasty stuff
about ATT and maybe they'll give you a break! :)

Sprint monthly fee: $10 /month Sprint bills in six second increments.
What about C&W?  It's nice to be able to check voice mail from
anywhere in the US for one cent!  (Of course, it's more if there are
messages for me.)

This is a neat feature.  Sprint doesn't have anything similar, as far
as I know.

It's not that impressive.  The Sprint service reps can do the same
thing, but I'm not sure how quick they are about changing the POTS
number that the 800 number rings in to.  I have call forwarding on my
POTs number and use that to control where the 800 number rings.

(I don't know if phones in Alaska and Hawaii can connect to my 800 #.)
