To better serve UC Berkeley’s telecommunications needs, effective July 1, Information Services & Technology (IST) will no longer charge campus customers for local and domestic long distance calls made from campus landlines within the United States, as well as to Canada and Mexico. IST will absorb the local and domestic long distance charges and will not pass these costs on to campus customers. Faculty, staff, and student employees will be able to place these calls without the added expenditure to their department or unit. Customers will see this change reflected in their August billing statements. The IST billing statement will still display itemized details about the calls, but there will be no charges associated with them. Customers will continue to pay the base charges for telephone equipment. This change brings Berkeley in-line with the trend of many major universities, where the cost of commonly used IT services like email, telephone, and network are not individually billed. It is also consistent with what many of us see on our cellular and home telephone plans. IST is committed to improving and enhancing the products and services we provide to our faculty, staff, and student customers. Our belief is that this change will improve efficiency, and reduce administrative cost and complexity for your department or unit.
