Interpage Network Services Basic Messaging/Paging and Group Rate Plans

This page details Interpage's Server-to-Pager/Cellphone/SMS (Individual) and Messaging Gateway (Group) Service Plans and Prices.


[ Back to Main | Individual | Gateway/Group | Pricing | Messaging/Paging Main | Signup Form | Contacts ]


Interpage's Messaging and Paging Services provide an interconnection between the Internet, Web, and Cloud-based servers to pagers (alpha and numeric), cellphones, international SMS mobiles, and other messaging devices. Messaging/Paging Services are offered in two primary modalities: Individual and Gateway or Group, both of which are outlined below.

Note: For self-dispatch TAP/IXO access to Interpage, where messages are distpatched to Interpage via modem-based "self-dispatch" software, and converted to text-messages and e-mail, sent to pagers, cellphones, SMS, fax, text-to-speech, and other devices, please review the TAP/IXO description on the Ancillary/Self-Dispatch page.

Interpage also offers "numeric dispatch" port access for Touch Tone (DTMF) manual or automated entry and conversion/dissemination to e-mail, pager, cellphone, SMS, fax, text-to-speech, and other devices. The numeric gateway is described in more detail on the
DirectPage(sm) page, as well as on the Self-Dispatch overview.

Individual/Personal Accounts


Most individual/Personal (non-group/Enterprise) plans include all of Interpage's basic services, including messaging notification to mobile phones and pagers, automated e-mail retrieval, e-mail forwarding and screening, message/page screening, autoresponder and confirmation messages. Customizeable news, weather, and informational services, a personal reminder system, Intertalk(sm) access, full telnet and web customization, scheduling, and message filtering access are also included.

Individual/Personal Accounts feature fixed or semi-fixed destination pagers, cellphones, SMS mobiles and/or other messaging devices which are messaged when e-mail (or other condition, such as a scheduled reminder message) is received at/generated by your Interpage account. Mail and alerts may be filtered and screened to only allow certain senders or message content to be transmitted to your messaging device(s), and may be scheduled based on time and day of the week.

InFax
(sm) and OutFax(sm) fax-notification and broadcast services are also available at the discounted rate of $5 per month for basic service with any individual paging gateway plan.

Enterprise/Group/Multipoint OutPage Accounts


Enterprise Customers which need to send to many different messaging devices and platforms in an ad hoc manner, or who need to utilize Interpage's completely automated messaging and paging gateway as a singular account to message to all of their and/or their customer's pagers, cellphones, SMS and other messaging devices, should refer to the Group Rates section in the second table below. A protocol spec sheet for the OutPage procotol is located here.

The OutPage protocol is similar to and can be used in conjunction with the Outvoice and OutFax services to "fill in" a messaging or emergency alert/notification regime when pages or text-messages are not practicable or timely. All of Interpage's Gateway/Notification services may be accessed from a single, common account and accessed from multiple individuals, LANs, servers and locations.

Outpage(sm) customers who opt for the optional MultiPoint redundancy package pay a per page rate which is a combination of toll and/or per-page rates from the various call centers utilized for their redundant paging application, thus the above rates may be used to compute a cost basis PER SITE for a given MutliPoint Outpage account.

There is a one-time set up fee equivalent to the selected monthly rate basis for all accounts, and a prorated set-up charge may also apply for partial initial months of service. Manual addition/modifications/deletions to stored pagers and/or systems are billed at $5 per addition/modification/deletion.

* Student is half off of the basic monthly rate for any full-time student. Valid student id, paid tuition bill, and/or proof of enrollment required. Student rates can not be applied towards any discounts.

NOTE:
(Group/Gateway ONLY): Other group/gateway plans are also available, please inquire for details. Charges may also accrue for pager additions/ modifications (if special/manual configurations are needed; this is not commonly required) and/or for large group accounts' pager storage, please inquire for details. The rate is currently $5 per addition/modification.

NOTE:
Effective 01/01/2003, all grandfathered Tier I/Group I paging plans have been transitioned to the posted Tier I/Group I rates. The manual configuration storage rate has decreased to $.39/month and been merged into extant rateplans, above. Please consult the mailing dated 11/18/2002 for details, or review the "Group I" rates, above.

NOTE:
There is a $10 set-up fee per Individual account paying by credit card, $15 if payment will be made by check. Group/Multipoint accounts are billed a set-up fee equivalent to one month's service rate basis which will appear on the first month's invoice.


Plan Details

Individual E-Mail to Pager/Mobile/SMS Plans:

*BASIC PLAN: $10.00 per month, unlimited SMS, Text, and Pages to any mobile phone or pager with a US/Canadian number in the 50 US States, DC, or the Canadian Provinces. There is a $10 one-time set up fee. Payments must be made by recurring credit card.

*SMS/INTERNATIONAL PLAN: $10.00 per month, and 15 cents per SMS/page. The SMS/International mail and messaging gateway plan allows for any mobile or messaging device capable of receiving SMS messages to receive e-mail, web-based, and other messages via the Interpage SMS Gateway. This plan is well-suited to customers who have non-US/Canadian mobile phones and/or other messaging devices and where the given carrier does not offer an e-mail gateway for SMS messages. While the SMS/International plan is primarily focused on customers who have mobile phones and devices outside of the US/Canada, this plan may be used to message international phones and devices located in the US/Canada and/or US/Canadian mobiles and other devices which have no means to receive messages other than SMS.

*VALUE PLAN: $20.00 per month, with unlimited paging to US/Canadian paging systems. Pages sent to mobile phones, paging systems/pagers, and other devices ouside of the US/Canada will be billed at $.15 per page. This plan is useful for customers who have both US/Canadian mobiles or pagers as well as who travel outside of North America and need messages to be delivered to mobiles and pagers with non-US/Canadian numbers.

*STUDENT PLAN: Half of the Basic Plan, the Student Plan is rated at $4.95 per month with unlimited pages and texts. A current paid tuition bill, student ID, and/or proof of full-time enrollment are required and the student rate will be maintained only for the period of enrollment as indicated on submitted documents.

Enterprise Paging Gateway Service Plans:

*Group I Plan: Oriented towards customers who need to access, message, and page many different mobile, paging, or messaging systems in the US/Canada or worldwide (via SMS or direct dial), this plan offers ALL pages and messages at 10 cents per page for US/Canadian destinations, 20 cents per SMS/Text message outside of the US/Canada, and 30 cents per page to pagers and other messaging devices outside of the US/Canada. Charges for manual/customized additions and modifications to pagers listed in your account may apply; storage charges for specially configured pagers may also apply; please inquire for details. Pager pre-registration is not required in nearly all cases.

* Group II Plan: US/Canada text, SMS, and pages are billed at 9 cents per message/page, and 26 cents to pagers, mobile devices, and SMS messages send outside of the US/Canada. Charges for manual/customized additions and modifications to pagers listed in your account may apply; please inquire for details. Pager pre-registration is not required in nearly all cases.

* Group III, IV, V Plan: Similar to Group II but intended for sites with moderate to heavy usage, offers guaranteed bandwidth for simultaneous messaging (especially useful for paging to numeric paging systems), robust confirmation protocols, real-time billing, and discounted SMS and International messaging rates. Charges for manual/customized additions and modifications to pagers listed in your account may apply; please inquire for details. Pager pre-registration is not required in nearly all cases.

Messaging (Group Messaging) and Individual Customers may change billing plans at will, but these changes will not become effective until the first day of the month immediately subsequent to the month in which the change/modification request was made.
