ATMORE, ALABAMA -- Don't let Startec Global Communications cheap rates fool you !!! They might provide you with cheap long distance rate but, the hidden fees are not cheap at all !!!! They don't mention that when you initially sign and enroll with them. All the fees comes after you make the the long distance phone call. For example there is a carrier cost recovery fee, (15% of the total bill) federal universal service fund, (12% of the total bill) on top of that the federal tax, state tax, local tax, franchise fee and the misc. fee. All in all you will be paying half of the bill in fees ! In my opinion Startec Global Communications is a total rip off !!! I recently filed a complaint with the BBB about this crooked company. Read the fine print and ask for the undisclosed info that they don't tell you about before signing up. And oh . . . good luck trying to close your account with them. They will put you thru the loops and put you on hold for eternity while at the same time you're furious, pissed off and irritated !
