What are the rates for collect calling?
That would depend on which collect calling service you want to use?
Shaw phones, as far as I am aware, can not accept collect calls.
Shaw doesn't have their own collect call service. Only other providers can charge YOUR account for accepting a collect call.
As for the rates they are set by the other provider as well which is passed onto you. I have made a few collect calls personally and the price is steep though. Starts out $3-$4 per minute then starts to drop down after 5 or so minutes.
Basically a 5min collect call is around $20 or so. These prices are set by telus in this case.
Shaw has enabled collect calling so our customers can accept calls now. But as we don't decide how much the telco making the call will charge, it's best before accepting a call to ask the operator for the rate so that there won't be any surprises on the next bill.
