June 1, 1999, we announced the offering of our own long distance plans. Two plans were offered – One Thin Dime for 10 cents a minute at $3.95 per month, and Just My Time for 14 cents a minute and no monthly charge. We introduced these plans to help our customers cut through the clutter and hype surrounding long distance service so they could receive good service at competitive prices.
We still offer these plans today. Long Distance rates have continued to climb. The Dime plan is still just a 10 cents per minute but costs $5.95 per month and Just My Time is 18 cents per minute.
