    Expanded LOCAL calling area????(ATT: USCC Employees))

    With the New map at USCC it say Expanded Local calling area what does that mean?- Try zip code 03109(NH) and check out the map to see what I mean- I wonder if it means that you can call from those areas(Green area) on the local plan??????

    It's always been that way, at least here. Expanded local = regional roaming rate... 30c/min I believe.

    But if thats the case why show the Regional map at all? And before it was called Regional Coverage Area- Now it's changed to Expanded Local - which with Verizon still falls under your package minutes- not roaming minutes.

    A regional plan covers everything, green and red. A local plan only covers the red, with the green usually being at a reduced roaming rate.

    There still are regional plans, you just have to ask for them. I guess they left the map as it is since the red doesn't cover continuous areas.

    tragic is correct - the red/pink area is where "local" plans/features count (n/w, incoming, etc.), while the green area is reduced rate (30 cents/min) roaming in all markets except Central/Midwest...on Regional plans, the green areas are included in your coverage, and if you have the 3000 Regional n/w package ($6.95 in New England, not available in Central/Midwest, $4.95 in all other markets...this package is only available with Regional plans)...if you have a Span America or one of the new National plans, the green areas of the map are irrelevant, since you have no roaming charges in any of the 50 states...the red/pink areas, however, apply as above for your n/w, incoming, and as a rough guide for m2m coverage (m2m, of course, is on uscc towers only, but, except for northern VT and western OK, the local coverage is pretty much all uscc coverage)

    Keep the Faith,
