John Madey, Director, CNS-Telecommunications

Effective October 1, 2003, CNS-Telecom is pleased to announce a lower long distance rate alternative for the campus. This new service is for on campus faculty and staff numbers starting with the prefix of 392, 846, 294 and 273.

The new long distance rate will be 5.5 cents a minute versus the current 8.0 cents a minute – a savings of over 30%. This rate is for both intrastate (within state) and interstate (out of state) calls. To take advantage of this special rate, just dial 9:

Dial 9+1+area code+7 digit telephone number = SAVINGS

SUNCOM Inbound and Outbound calls are still available to the university. To use SUNCOM, dial 8 + 7 digit SUNCOM telephone number. The rate for SUNCOM calls is 8.0 cents a minute.

New rates for international calls are currently being negotiated as well. If you have any questions regarding the new long distance service offering for the campus, please contact John Madey at or call 392.1146.
