Please be advised that the Florida Department of Corrections has negotiated new statewide inmate telephone system rates.
The following charges have been eliminated:
- “to connect” charge on local calls of $0.50
- “to connect” charge on prepaid calls of $1.02
- “to connect” charge on collect calls of $1.20
With the elimination of these charges, new rate per minute charges have been established as defined below:

These changes are designed to provide cost savings to friends and family by focusing charges on minutes used rather than requiring an upfront fee to connect the call.
