THE CAR* THEYEAR .«'•-• •• , ••• •*.• Will , IQWA FRIDA JUNE 18 KJT Why We Must Reprice Some Long Distance Services In order tliftt we may provide good telephone service to our customers here in Iowa and improve it aj ,,we go along, prices for the service must tike into account the prevailing costs of furnishing it. i Since the war, we have spent $22,000,000 in Iowa to improve and extend local and long distance service in every essential respect. Hundreds of circuits, switchboard positions and .related equipment have , been added to make long'distance service faster for all. Keeping up this program will call for continuing large investment in the business. . Improvement and expansion have gone ahead in the face of much higher costs all along the line — wages, equipment and supplies of all kinds. But the added investment is vital to a completely adequate telephone service, in keeping with the growing needs of the State. % Taking into account these huge expenditures for added plant, and the higher operating costs of furnishing service, we find that further adjustments in. , v, ,pur prices have to be made to bring earnings on, our *v? jorig distance business within the State up to a reasonable level. We have no alternative, therefore, at this time but to reprice long distance service between telephones in Iowa. 'The rates — reduced eight timei over the last 21 years — will be brought to the approximate level in effect in other states served by the company. . _ The over-all effect of the adjustment is moderate — 17 per cent on our long distance business withirf p ',the State as compared with published increases in wholesale commodity prices of slightly more than '" 100 per cent.over prewar levels. In fact, some rates 'will remain unchanged and others will be reduced. The principal changes, effective June 21, 1948, are as follows: An increase oj 5 cents, and some oj JO cents in • the initial' \icriod stalion-to-slalion and f>erio»-tr>-fttr- son day rales \or ti/ost distances under 175 miles, for a Jew distance.!, .fierson-/o-/;erso>i day rates' art in- ., creased 15 cents or 20 cents. N'i«i>t and. Sunday rates are increased fro:n 5 cents tij> lo 20 ce'n/s, c/epetit/hig on the distance. A nn:\orm initial period oj three minutes is estab- 1'isbcd \or all classes o\- calls. If you' have; any questions or wish any additional information regarding these changes, 1 would appreciate it if you woukl get in touch with me or with our business office. • • 1 1.1J.TIMM, Manager NORTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE COMPANY •'!.'
