My brother was locked up in federal prison and I was paying almost $300 a month on collect calls, but now I pay only $17 a month total with Cold Crib Communications
Nashville, Tennessee (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
ColdCribCommunications.com, The leader in VoIP services dedicated to families of the incarcerated has announced true unlimited jail calls from inmates to their loved ones on the outside.
Exorbitant telephone rates make the prison telephone industry a very lucrative business since
prison phone companies such as Globel Tel Link and Securus are awarded monopolies through a bidding process in which they submit contract proposals to county and state prison systems which also gives kick-backs in either the form of a upfront fee or a percentage of the high rate earnings being charged to inmates and their families just to make a phone call.
A typical 15 minute call can sometimes be as high as $18 with a $4.50 charge just for accepting the call from the prison.
Currently there is no regulations to impose price caps on long-distance prison telephone rates.
In this context, low-income families pay exorbitant phone rates that fund state revenues although tax payers pay for prisons
Cold Crib Communications offers a solution to this problem that can knock that same 15 minute jail call down to as low as $2.36 per call. Since there is no way around the contracted prison phone provider that owns the payphones inside the jails for the prisoners to call out. They will issue you a special outside local number that forces the prison phone system to reduce the inmate calls to local rates since Cold Crib Communications phone numbers are registered as local land line numbers eliminating the long distance rate that would usually apply, So even if you live in another state you will only be charged at the local rates as if the inmate was calling a home phone down the road from the facility.
Of course if your inmate is in a federal prison, Using this service makes the inmate calls totally unlimited with no additional costs since federal prisons do not require a pre-paid call provider.
The staff at Cold Crib Communications is committed to helping users get in touch with their loved ones. Help desk and live chat options on the company’s site ensure support team help is available when you need it.
Alan Page, one of Cold Crib Communications’ representatives, says the program alleviates the long-running problem of high cost-prison calls from inmates experienced by their families.
“We wanted to put a sense of relief out there that now you don’t have to pay high rates to accept a call from a loved one in prison,” Alan said.
The viability of Cold Crib Communications is evident in testimonials from satisfied customers, who have witnessed firsthand the savings and increased connections the program afforded them.
“My brother was locked up in federal prison and I was paying almost $300 a month on collect calls, but now I pay only $17 a month total with Cold Crib Communications,” Pat Zimmerman, a satisfied Cold Crib Communications customer, said.
