New York, NY (PRWEB) October 27, 2015 -- Prison Connect (prisonconnect.us), a phone company that helps inmates’ families connect with their loved ones in prison by reducing their phone charges, strongly supports the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) action that puts a further limit on the exorbitant rates for inmate phone calls.
PrisonConnect was founded last year on the belief that communication with inmates should be reliable and affordable, even free, and that companies like Securus and Global Tel-Link should not profit from the disadvantaged position of inmates and their families. Love, strong community and family ties are fundamental for inmates’ rehabilitation, and are a key factor in lowering the chances of repeat incarceration. High phone rates and exorbitant fees lead to lack of communication, which creates long-term problems, not just for inmates, but for their families, especially their children.
Those who pay unreasonable rates to stay in touch with loved ones serving time are a very vulnerable and disadvantaged segment of society that need help and care, not extortion and the additional hardship of spending several hundred dollars per month just to stay in touch. Thus, Prison Connect supports all petitions from families and friends of inmates, and all FCC action designed to ease their burden and make communication less expensive.
Through its fully automated, real-time activated service, for the best monthly price, PrisonConnect helps families and friends of inmates save on their phone bill and connect more with their loved ones. The company is ranked #1 by PrisonCallDeals, and it contributes to reducing high prison phone rates by offering affordable service that lessens the high phone charges of companies such as Securus and Global Tel-Link, while also supporting petitions like that of Martha Wright. Through the launch of a program of contributions the company will donate to inmate-related organizations, in an effort to further help inmates and their families.
