Another round of rate increases for ?legacy? AT&T long distance plans is on the way. Effective March 1, the following plans? monthly recurring fees increased:
Consumers on these plans may want to compare the new cost of their monthly long distance service to other options, both with landline long distance carriers and over other platforms such as cell phones, Skype, and prepaid calling cards. While the cost of these alternative technologies may not end up saving money versus the AT&T plans, it's generally smart for consumers to do a communications ?check-up? at least once every six months regardless. These rate increases could be just the incentive needed to get out those bills and run the numbers. The money you save could be yours!
