Long Distance Telephone Offer

Since 2002 the Co-op has provided members with Long Distance Telephone Service, through Powernet Global (PNG).

To be able to get Long Distance service, the member must have a local access carrier landline already. This service is available for phone numbers outside Vermont, as well.

PNG offers multiple prices (cost per minute; CPM) and monthly charges, and levels of subscription.  However, due to the competitive market and frequency of changes the Co-op no longer publishes CPM offers on this website.

Your co-op has partnered with a national co-op serving hundreds of local co-ops nationwide with Long Distance service. So, it’s a competitive offer and service. Through the purchase power of our co-op community we believe this Long Distance service provides good value.   We have tested this service before we have made this offer to our members.  You may still find another vendor with a lower “CPM,” but we believe this is a good deal today.

You need to have a local land line and access (dial tone) for the Long Distance service from PNG to work. This service is available from land line phones anywhere in the US, and a Co-op member with PNG Long Distance service is able to add another phone number (whether theirs or other family members) to their account.
