Note to Bob: This service is available through an internet business I am involved with, so I don't know if it violates your no publicizing policy, but the subject came up and the rates are great. If you don't want to post it, I could post a more general message and people could contact me off-list.
[Corbett interjects: I will accept this since it comes in directly
reponse to a request on the list which is clearly not connected with you.]
I live in Northville, Michigan. I had MCI and paid 80-90 cents per minute (I don't remember exactly) to Haiti. We recently switched to OPEX communications. They are a part of Global Crossings. It is a service available through an internet business I just became involved with. The rates to Haiti are 63¢ per minute (it may be 71¢ per minute when calling a cell phone). State-to-state calls and in-state toll calls are also reasonable and vary by state. Billing is in 6 second increments. There is no monthly fee, the only caveat is that if your monthly long distance bill is less than $20.00, they add a $2.00 surcharge.
My wife is Haitian, so we call family in Haiti frequently. It seems pretty reliable, and has saved us money.
