Metro calling to begin soon
By Kristen Miller
Metro calling will begin as of midnight, Thursday, March 15 for everyone with a 286 telephone prefix.
Those who will be part of the change-over have been notified in this month’s billing statement, according to Cokato resident and supporter Sandy Peroutka.
Residential rates will be increased by $3.69 per month, and businesses will be increased by $7.38 per month for those with a 286 exchange.
Metro calling allows people with Cokato prefixes to dial numbers in the Twin Cities or other towns with metro calling without a long distance charge.
Other surrounding towns with metro calling include Howard Lake, Winsted, Waverly, Montrose, and Delano.
