Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 19, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THc IFIHBRIDGE HERAID Tuesday, December 17. 1975 Telephone rate increase puts Lethbridge into high-cost league Bv GP.EG McfNTVRE Ilsralcl Staff Writer A Feb. 1 telephone rate in- crease will put Ltlhbridge in th.e hash-cost league with Cal- gary and Edrnor.ton. Alberta Government Te'e- phor.es has served notice of the ir.cn'.hly increase to customers in the 'Lethbridge telephone ex- change area.

Coaldale customers, on a spe- cial tell-free line to Lethbridge, are air etc v en the higher rate and v.iii r.'.: he affected by the February in.crea.-e. The lore t raies are for ex- changes with Vf> or less tele- phone numbers. AGi's rate approved by the Public 'utilities Board of Alber- ta in the last time there was a general rate increase. This increase only affects customer; on the Lethbridge ex- change. Larger exchanges re- quire more banks of switches and manpower and are there- fore more expensive, said Mr. Brice. Business telephones will cost Sll. lip from !9 a month. Multi- party business up from JJ5. Residential rates will go to from SS, arid multi-party residential to from are based on both ot offering telephone service, and the value to the customer. Higher rates in larger centres are justified on the grounds that there are more toll-free numbers available to the cus- tomer.

Six rate groups, according to n'.imber o' numbers on the ex- change, are: up to 500 tele- phone numbers, S? a month busi- ness, M.15 residential; 501 to 1.500, J5.50 business, re- sidential; to tO.25 business, W.65 residential; to S7.Z5 business.

There are fewer rural custo- mers per line than in other pro- vinces, In addition, v.hen the new J2.5 million AGT building en 4th Ave. S. transfers to auto- matic electric switches in April, Alberta will have six electric offices more than all the rest of the provinces combin- ed, he said.
