SBC Phone Rates To Increase

Sponsored by:

It looks like your phone bill is about to increase.

State regulators met today in San Francisco today and voted to allow S-B-C Communications to raise the rates it charges competing carriers to lease its lines.

S-B-C´s wholesale rates will now increase by roughly 20 percent.

Consumer groups and competing phone companies opposed the increase.
