Pre-Paid Long Distance


The next money-maker in the long distance telephone business will be

focused on the way we buy and pay for long distance service.


In the last 4 years, technological advancement in telecommunications

services has opened doors for entrepreneurs to make money selling Ma

Bell's services.

Private-Party-owned Pay Phones spread like wildfire, and 25Cent-Per-Minute

Long Distance Flat Rate Billing was introduced and gobbled up by an excited




Pre-Paid Long Distance service is nothing more than a marketing person's

dream of being able to charge for something that need not be delivered

1) You walk into a convenience store and buy a Phone Card for $10, or any

denomination it is being sold.

2) When the time comes for you to use the card, simply dial the toll-free

2) The rates marketing companies are charging are relatively higher than

basic phone company rates.

3) As a business, long distance resellers and marketers will be competing

for the same consumer "penny".

Mixed with something novel or commercially accepted, pre-paid phone cards

may just make it big in the U.S.
