Rebates to be included in April telephone bills

STANFORD -- University departmental and residential clients of Communication Services, which provides Stanford telephone services, may be surprised when they open their bills for the month of April.

Rebates will be included.

Jan Thomson, director of Communication Services, said the unit has rebated more than $300,000 to departments and students. The rebate was made possible, Thomson said, because system growth and usage surpassed university estimates and resulted in higher revenue.

Rebates are being issued to all university departments as well as students living in on-campus residences served by the Stanford telephone system. The rebates, Thomson said, are actually in the form of credits, with clients not being charged for certain services on their April 1993 statements.

For example, no charges were made to departments for telephone feature packages, voice mail or point-to-point circuits. Students were not billed for their April monthly service, call-waiting or voice mail. Also, departments and students will receive a 9 percent credit for their 1992-93 long-distance calling charges.
