Many Barnesville residents are asking the question, ” Why do I need to keep my local phone line now that I’m on fiber?”

Barnesville Municipal Telephone is subject to the National Exchange Carrier Association (NECA) tariff. The NECA tariff ensures smaller rural telephone companies have the financial resources to support the lines that deliver the internet to your home. Those resources come from the phone line charges or an additional NECA-imposed fee on the internet charge. The NECA tariff allows us to offer High Speed internet with or without phone service. When we offer High Speed internet without phone service, NECA requires the internet charge be increased by $64.86 for all levels of internet service. Compare this amount to the cost of the phone line at $27.00 plus tax, having the phone line is much more economical.

Plus….our internet customers that also have Barnesville Cable TV, Barnesville Long distance and the phone line qualify for a “Package Discount” up to $30. 00 per month depending on the internet package you have!
