Telephone Equipment Problems And Changes
Telephone repair problems, request for new service or changes to existing services should be directed to the University Solutions Centre Phone: 403 329-2490 Location: E610, or go to https://uleth.service-now.com/sp/ and fill out an Incident or Service Request form as appropriate.
Each University account is billed on a monthly basis for telephone tolls incurred during the previous month. The University produces its own telephone bill through a Call Detail Recording System. Each University account will receive a monthly billing comprised of the University billing for all long distance calls made from each local, and a Telus billing for all operator assisted charges. Each University acount is responsible for its respective telephone calls and charges. Should there be a discrepancy in any billing, please contact the Solution Centre for clarification or adjustment.
Fax machine long distance transmissions are charged to the University based upon telephone equipment connection. Individual departments are responsible for these charges even if the receiving fax machine is out of paper, etc. Telus recommends that we NOT use auto redial for long distance fax calls, because it will retry numerous times, and each time your fax machine makes contact with the receiving fax machine, the individual department will be charged, whether the message is sent or not.
