Default Some VERY welcome news concerning phone rates!

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.

According to this, the calls will be 15 minutes. They were previously 20 minutes. Does this mean there is a decrease in minutes? Is gtl the new provider instead of vac?

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!
