Domestic Long Distance, International & Toll Free Calling (Enhanced Service)
Domestic long distance refers to telephone calls made outside the Enterprise Voice System, within the United States, and carrying a per minute or per call charge, varying between long distance providers.
International long distance refers to long distance calls made between different countries and usually carry higher charges than domestic calls.
Toll Free or inbound long distance provides callers with a toll-free number (a number beginning with 800, 844, 855, 866, 877, and 888) allowing them to reach businesses and/or individuals without being charged for the call. The charge for using this toll-free number is paid by the party being called, not the calling party.
All calling within the Enterprise Voice System is free. This provides an enormous value to all agencies in the state in terms of leveraging economies of scale and existing networking to provide cost savings.
Additionally, by pooling all long distance calling into one system, better rates can be obtained from telecom providers through bulk purchasing at ETS.
