How will my calls be billed?

If you choose a service and plan requiring a credit card with autopay your subscription fees and call charges will be automatically deducted from your credit card on file each month. If you choose a plan that does not require a credit card, you will mail a check to us each month. Some dial around plans are billed through your local phone company, and charges will appear on your local telephone service invoice.

How can I make a payment?

Here are two easy ways to make a payment:

1. Go online to, login and choose Make a Payment under the My Billing menu. Remember that you can always use your registered phone number as your username and your account number as your password to gain access to My Account. Your account number and registered phone number can be found on your invoice.

What is Carrier Cost Recovery Fee (CCRF)?

The Carrier Cost Recovery Fee is 11.9% of your state-to-state and international long distance charges. The fee helps Startec recover costs associated with providing state-to-state and international long distance service, including access charges assessed on Startec by local telephone companies, the cost of terminating calls to international destinations and billing expenses. This fee applies for each month in which you have any Startec state-to-state and/or international charges on your bill. This fee is not a tax or charge required by the government.
