Rates and/or discounts are available in Exhibit A or the specific rate sheet in your Interconnection or Resale Agreement.

Rates for packages that exceed the 3 choices will be determined by the features chosen. The most expensive 3 features will be included in the package rate with no additional charge. For example, if 3 initial features are chosen and then several additional "Add On" features are chosen and Voice Mail and DA Call Allowance are two of the choices, the Voice Mail and the DA Call Allowance would automatically become part of the package since they are the most expensive features. Additional features (over the 3 included in the package) will be billed at $3.00 or the Tariffs/Catalogs/Price Lists rate, whichever is less expensive, less the Wholesale discount: see Tariffs/Catalogs/Price Lists.
