CustomNet™ - V14.0

History Log

Product Description

CustomNet service provides screening options that restrict certain types of outgoing operator assisted toll calls. When end-users dial 0/0+, operator services will require charges for the call to be billed collect, to a third party or to a calling card.

CustomNet allows all local and nonchargeable calls, e.g., calls to 800 type service numbers and public emergency service numbers such as 911/Enhanced 911 (E911). Calls dialed 0/0+ to Directory Assistance (DA) will be permitted if alternate billing is provided.

CustomNet by itself does not block 1+ dialing. Based on the blocking option chosen, you can choose to block or not to block 1+ dialing. If you choose not to block 1+ dialing, you will be responsible for any 1+ charges incurred.

Additional blocking features include:
