Rural Call Experience

Long distance calls to rural area's of the United States can be a frustrating experience, whether you are the caller or the callee. If you have ever tried to place a long distance or wireless call to a rural area, you may have experienced call completion issues, such as dead air - where you can't hear anything, prolonged ringing or various recordings like “Your call cannot be completed as dialed, please check the number and try again”.

These issues are often the byproduct of how long distance carriers choose to route calls and it's usually due to following the least cost routing model, which can lead to this poor experience.
