Many long-distance plans include monthly charges in addition to regular calling fees.
- Most charges are between $1 and $5 per month, but some are higher.
- Ask whether your provider imposes a monthly charge and find out the exact amount.
- Don’t be afraid to negotiate.
- If you are a high-volume customer, your provider might waive the monthly fee.
- They also might offer you other discounts and waivers. It never hurts to ask.
