Reductions in Long Distance rates effective February 1
will mean an annual saving to the public of more than $6,
The people of Montana will substan
tially profit by these reductions which
affect day calls between points from 130
to approximately 1500 miles apart.
This is the third general reduction in
Long Distance rates in a period of less
than two years and a Tialf.
During 1928 there was a continuous im
provement in the speed •tflth which long
distance calls were handled, a large percentage of them be
ing handled while the subscriber remained at the telephone.
While the service has been speeded up, the quality of the
service has been continuously improved.
Thus in long distance service it has been possible both
to Improve the service and reduce the rates.
