Billing is handled as follows:
In a “Meet Me” conference format, the originator pays $.12 per port per minute. All participants will then be responsible for their own long distance costs.
In a “Meet Mix” conference format, the originator pays the per port charge, as well as part or all of the long distance charge.
There is also an “Operator Assist” format, where an operator places the calls for the participants. (This type is rarely used by State agencies).
