UAB IT reducing cellular phone rates

UAB IT has found a way to reduce costs for University-provided cell phones without sacrificing plan capacity.

UAB IT will be reducing the rate plans for cellular phones with 600 and 1000 anytime minutes, saving customers $13 to $25 per affected line without running the risk of overage costs.

Rate plans for the lines affected will be reduced to 400 anytime minutes, but because minutes are pooled across our academic, business and healthcare units and UAB IT diligently monitors use, there is no risk that overages on minutes will result in further costs. Overall, this change will provide a significant savings for UAB.

These savings will take effect as of the Aug. 1, 2018, invoice cycle.
