Why do you have a monthly minimum to qualify for wholesale?
The distinction between retail and wholesale comes down to the amount of resources required to support the product. Retail services, typically characterized by lower volume, lower ticket products require much more support. Wholesale or enterprise services generally quantify more volume but with an equal or often lower level of support required. Therefore we can cut margin substantially.
What payment options are available?
We accept major credit cards (Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover), Paypal and Electronic Checks for amounts $500 or less. Amounts over $500 can be paid by paper check with a five day clearing period. Or, by bank wire, which will post to your account immediately.
Why do I need to sign an NDA?
The non-disclosure agreement is meant to keep both parties safe. CTI should not be allowed to use your private company information for any purpose externally and we would prefer that you not post privately negotiated terms publicly. Additionally, there are countless unforeseen topics that will arise during discussion and may or may not be appropriate for disclosure.
Why do you use LATA or OCN billing for Domestic US calls and can I get flat rate billing instead?
LATA or OCN billing is the lowest common denominator of billing amongst local operators (OCN’s) in the US. If a small OCN in a rural LATA charges a large ILEC 4c/minute to ingress to its switch then that ILEC is going to charge CTI no less than 4c to reach the same area. If you are offered flat rate billing for domestic termination by a competing carrier then behind the scenes someone is losing money on an acceptable amount of your rural traffic but making it up on the majority of your traffic.
