Local Toll Calls? What’s That?
Local toll calls are calls to neighboring communities that are beyond your local calling area. These calls are generally billed by time of day and distance and appear in the itemized section of your local phone bill. Rates vary by state, so check on rates within your own state. Many long distance companies offer savings based on volume discounts, combining local toll calls with your current long distance calling plan. You may be able to save by choosing a company for your local toll calls instead of having them handled by the local telephone company.
