Better rates for MIT calling cards

Information Services and Technology (IS&T) has negotiated a new calling card contract with Qwest that has significantly lower rates than those available through AT&T. New Qwest calling cards have been activated for every member of the community who has an MIT AT&T or Verizon calling card.

Effective Oct. 1, the new Qwest calling cards will use the 1-800-6GETMIT number, and that number will no longer work for AT&T calling cards. To use the AT&T calling card, dial 1-800-CALLATT. However, IS&T encourages those with MIT calling cards to use the new Qwest cards instead. For details, see the IS&T web site.
