Switched Long Distance Service
Switched long distance connects calls to the PSTN via the pre-subscribed interexchange carrier (PIC) assigned to your outgoing telephone line. Switched long-distance call charges include both the originating and terminating ends of the call. Switched long distance does not require you to have any additional equipment on your premises.
Dedicated Long Distance Service
Dedicated outbound long distance service provides local access to a national network via a local loop circuit using third-party provider facilities, or facilities you arrange on your own. Dedicated long-distance call charges include both the originating and terminating ends of the call. On premise, long-distance routing equipment is needed to accommodate dedicated long distance.
A Toll-free number is unique because the telephone carrier charges the cost of calling the number to the called party, rather than the caller.
A toll-free number is assigned from a special dialing prefix range (also known as an area code) – such as 800 – where all calls to those prefixes are free to the caller.
The cost of the call is based on various factors, including the amount of usage the number receives, the cost of the trunk lines to the facility, and possibly a monthly flat-rate service charge.
