Wats is wot's in the Credit Services office in Lethbridge. Wats has nothing lo do with watts as ni electricity. More properly, wats should be WATS stands for wide area telephone service. It is provid- ed by Alberta Government Tel- ephones, Credit Services is the only firm in Lethbridge to have WATS. Credit Services is one of 49 firms in Alberta lo have WATS. WATS gives Credit Services a private line to all Alberta points. If owner Steve Wild wants to phone somebody in Ed- monton, say, he picks up his WATS telephone and simply dials the seven-digit number he desires in Edmonton WATS is charged for at a Hat monlhly rate not by the in- dividual call. There are three types. Full- time service enables a person to use the WATS line whenever he likes. Measured time ser- vice, which Credit Services has, provides similar use for a basic period of 10 hours a monlb, with an overtime charge being applied lo cover any additional usage. Half measure time allows a person to use his WATS line for a basic period of five hours a month providing he already has a full time or measured-tuna service. Rates are based on zones. Credit Services, for example, has Zone 1 service, which al- lows Mr. Wild lo phone any- where in Alberta for 5260 a i month. If he goes over the 10 hours, the overtime charge is an hour. A measuring device tolals the length of calls. If he talks to a party for one minute, that is recorded and comes off his al- lowable 10 hours. Using con- venlional telephone services, a person has to pay for a mini- mum of Lhree minutes, even if he talks for only one minute. Zone 2 covers B.C., Alberts and Saskatchewan. As the zone number increases so does Ihc eastward area coverage. Zone 6 covers all of Canada The 10 hour measured-time rate for Zone 2 is 5390 a month plus an hour for over- time, and allows a person a di- rect line to anywhere in the three Western provinces. Full time service for Al- berta only costs S1.3GO a month and for Zone 2, For all of Canada the rate for full time service is a month and for 10 hour measur- ed time it runs S5M. WATS lines can be used for outgoing calls only. No calls can be received on a WATS line. In Alberta, WATS was intro- duced lo Calgary only, in May. 19G5. In 1967 it was expanded to Edmonton and later to Drum- heller, Grande Prairie and i Peace River If is nol anticipated thai WATS equipment will be mstall- cd in Lethbridge, even when the new AGT building and equip- ment is installed. The Credit Services line Is connected w i t h Drumhcller. When Mr. Wild makes a call on his WATS line a recording de- vice is activated in Drumheller. WATS is offered by all trans-1 Canada telephone companies ex- j cept those in the Maritimes. j WATS is suitable only for' those who have a lot of long dis- tance calls to make, such as a credit investigator, an oil com- pany, a pipeline firm. i Imperial Oil was the first in Alberta to have WATS. It and TransCanada Pipelines have na- lional service. An AGT spokesman summed up WATS service as "dedicating a full lime circuit to a single firm. II guarantees an out cir- cuit and is equivalent to a pri- vate Vine."
