Global Tel Link (GTL) - ConnectNetwork
Global Tel Link - ConnectNetwork charges about $6.00 per 15-minute call from the jail. We can save you $3.00 per phone call with a phone number matched to the lowest rate offered (if yours is not already at the lowest price). Folks that speak to their inmate several times a month will benefit greatly. However, if you are speaking once a month, this is not for you.
Instant activation, there are no contracts and the service is month-to-month, you get up to 1000 discounted minutes per month on the cheaper line (no-rollover minutes). But, you will have to place funds in ConnectNetwork or your inmate's commissary account to get the $3.00 per-call savings.
You can add money to this account online (connectnetwork.com) or at the kiosk in the visiting room using the number provided by InmateAid. With our Discount Service, your inmate will get more calls for their money.
COST COMPARISON - Why this makes sense...
15 minutes call to your number is about $6.00
15 minutes call to OUR number is about $3.00
1000 long distance mins (67 calls) will cost you either $402 per month or $201.00 a month - depending on YOUR number
InmateAid costs $19.95 to save $201.00 PER MONTH
YOU SAVE $2,412.00 per year
*All facilities are slightly different in their tariff structure. If we can't save you money, we will not issue a number
**Rate calculator available on GTL website to verify savings
Here's what you'll need to do once you've got our new number...
Preferred Option: Have your inmate purchase calling cards within the commissary. Give your inmate the new number and they will be able to call you direct and basically by-passing the need to deal with Global Tel*Link reps on the phone altogether. If your inmate does not have the benefit of a calling card option within the commissary, then you will need to prepay the account at: https://connectnetwork.com
