Colorado prisoners get reduction in cost of phone calls
It just got easier for prisoners to keep in touch with their families by phone, a factor that improves an inmate's chances for turning his life around, authorities say.
The Colorado Department of Corrections negotiated a two-year deal with Global Tel Link that will drop some rates by 74 percent, DOC spokeswoman Katherine Sanguinetti said.
It is still myvconnect and it is still 20 minutes. It is now 3.85 for a 20 minute call thru vac but it is like 3.25 for our loved ones to put money on their end. I was paying almost $7.00 for a 20 minute call thru vac so this lower amount is very welcome news!
