Telephone (VoIP) Fees

Kennesaw State University utilizes Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone technology, which allows voice calls over a computing network. The VoIP system implementation was completed in FY15. The cost module for the VoIP phone system maintains a lower basic service rate, while enhancing the overall service for the campus.

Effective Fiscal Year 2016 (July 1, 2015-June 30, 2016), following are service features and fees departments are responsible for in their budgets for VoIP. A yearly review of cost will be completed each July to ensure all departments receive an accurate cost allocation. Monthly detailed call records are available to department heads upon request in order to monitor and control costs related to long distance and international calls.
