The Railroad Commissioners have stopped us from giving new subscribers free trial service.
WHAT'S TO BE DONE?
We have ordered equipment to care for additional 6,000 telephones. WHAT'S TO BE DONE?
JUST THIS: We are going to start January the First to charge old and new subscribers $2.00 per
month for business telephones, and $1.00 per month for residence telephones. When we have 6,000
telephones installed the rate will be raised 25c per month on residence telephones and 50c on busi
ness telephones. When we have 7,000 telephones, and until we have 10,000, the residence rate will be
raised 25c and the business 50c.
All you need to do to get these rates is to pay your telephone bill at our office before the 10th of
each month, If you don't, we will charge each residence telephone an additional 25c and each busi
ness telephone 50c.
We know that you will approve these rates because they are fair, and you only pay for what you get.
