Important Information about Sandhill’s Local Values Nationwide Residential Calling packages:
Unlimited local calling refers to Sandhill’s local calling scope. Nationwide minutes include both your direct-dialed voice calls (modem usage is not included) and your incoming toll-free voice minutes (for members who use Sandhill’s toll-free number service).
No minimum service contract required — these plans are designed for you; it’s your cooperative.
Rates exclude authorized federal and state regulatory fees and charges, and applicable federal, state, and municipal and school district taxes; and EAS charges, where appropriate.
Overage rates for the nationwide minutes in all Sandhill calling packages are 12 cents per minute; there are no penalties for switching between packages;
Cooperative members who have not selected Sandhill Communications as their preferred long-distance carrier will need to complete and sign a “PIC change” form to take advantage of our Local Value Nationwide calling packages; Sandhill will waive the $5.00 federally authorized PIC change charge, as well as the $5.00 intrastate state-authorized PIC change charge.
