Go to your nearest Walmart and pick up a Magic Jack.   If you don't have internet at the site, you'll need to get it as Magic Jack or other phone services like Vonage (more expensive) need it.  Or you could get an Air Card, or Mifi card.  If you don't like the Magic Jack, you can bring it back to Walmart for a refund.

You can do a lot at your transmitter site if you have the internet there.

Magic Jack is about $4 a month payable in advance. I use it at home and it works well.

Most phone companies use some sort of VOIP, but they won't tell you that.  There are few "land lines" for less than what you quoted.

Just my two cents.

Need a long distant service for our remote system service at one of our transmitter sites about 30 minutes away from our studios, it is just over the border in a different state but is considered long distance because of the area code.  ATT wants $15 dollars a month.  It is only used a few times a year to call us to alert us of any incidents.  Are there any other options that would be more cost efficient? Calling in is not a problem the calling out from that site is.
