Our Rates

Choctaw Telephone provides affordable rates.

Thank you for allowing Choctaw Telephone Company to handle your telecommunication needs. The following is a checklist of information for our new customers.

  • If you have chosen a long distance carrier other than MoKan Communications, you will need to contact them directly to activate your service and set up an account. You will receive a separate billing from the long distance carrier. Calls outside of the 48 contiguous states may vary from the standard calling plans. Please call ahead for rates.
  • There will be a one time connect charge of $17.50 to activate your service. Any jack installation and or wiring will be billed as additional charges.
  • We bill ahead for basic service and Internet – we bill a month behind for toll charges. Depending on the effective date of your service, your first billing may be for a period of more than 30 days. This also applies to any additional services you acquire at a future date.
  • Payments are due upon receipt of billing statement. If payment is not received prior to the 15th of the Month, you will receive a late notice. Late notice fee of $2.55 will apply.
  • The late notice will advise the disconnect date – this will vary from month to month. If payment is not received by 9:00 that day, service will be disconnected. Once service is disconnected, a $10.00 reconnect fee will apply.
  • In order to obtain information on an account, a person must be authorized to do so and will be required to provide a picture ID.
  • Account information requested by phone will require pre-established password.
