Rates vary and are subject to change. here is why;
1) We Price Calls (rate per minute announced) our retail consumers make globally at Wholesale Price, before Governmental Fees and taxes.
However, these factors may increase the cost per minutes to any destination above the wholesale rates:-
a) Rounding:- We bill our calls per second, but round a call that is less than 1 minute (60 seconds) to the nearest 1 minute.
b) Toll Free Access Numbers:- Using Toll Free Access Numbers incurs a fee of $0.0175 per minute. This fee is added to the wholesale rate advertised. We advise that you use Local Access numbers posted on our website.
c) Governmental Fees and Taxes. Because our rates are wholesale rates, meaning very low priced, we pass USF fees and other governmental sales taxes to our consumers.
d) All the three (3) factors above may reduce the length (duration) of your call. These costs, however, amount to LESS THAN 50% (toll free charges may increase this per centage) increased billing per minute. Thus, your total cost will always be less half the base (wholesale) rate (price per minute). Unlike our competition who markup their rates 100% or more, GeoNet motto is to be a bridge connecting you and the lowly priced wholesale telephony market so that you can afford to stay connected to your loved ones and business partners in distant places across the Globe. That is mission we intend to succeed in.
2) Calls made from pay telephones and certain other public phones in the US are assessed an additional 99 cents USD per call. Please refer to our web site for pay telephone charges for calls made from outside the US.
3) Calls made in the US using the toll free access number will incur an additional charge of 1.5 cent per minute. Please refer to our web site for charges related to toll free access number calls made from outside the US. Also, hotels may apply additional charges for calls made using their phones. These charges are billed directly by the hotel and are not related to GeoNet service. Please check with your accommodations regarding these additional charges.
No representation or warranty, express or implied, is made regarding available number of minutes to a particular country or remaining number of minutes to a particular country.

Refund and Credit Policy
At GeoNet we are committed to delivering high quality service every day. However, circumstances beyond our control may result in occasional disruptions in service.
We will issue a credit or a refund only in the following circumstances:
1) If you are charged for a call that was never completed (there was no answer). Upon verification, we will credit your account the amount charged;
2) If you have a new account with less than $10 USD usage, and wish to discontinue the service. Allow for at least 90 days for the refund to process.
3) If you have unintentionally created two or more GeoNet accounts and want to close the additional account. Allow for 90 days for refund to process through our system.
4) If you were incorrectly charged for services not received or for which you did not authorize. In such cases, you must contact GeoNet within 24 hours of the attempted call or discovery of the erroneous charges in order to be eligible for any refunds. You forfeit any claim if you did not request for refund for 90 days or more after this anomaly occurred.
You may cancel your personal, administrative or sub-account if you've used no more than $10.00 USD of the first purchase and receive a full refund. You may discontinue service at any time by providing written notice (either electronic or through the postal service) to GeoNet customer service. We will then shut down access to your account. GeoNet is not obligated to refund any of the unused balance in your GeoNet account as of the date you discontinue service, so we recommend that you use up the remaining balance before terminating the account.
GeoNet will not be liable for any failure of performance due to causes beyond its control, including, but not limited to, Acts of God, fires, floods or other catastrophes, national emergencies, insurrections, riots or wars, strikes, lockouts, work stoppages or other labor difficulties, preemption of existing services in compliance with any law, order, regulation or other action of any governing authority or agency thereof.
Call times for each call are rounded up to the next whole minute and billed in full minute increments. Per call charges are rounded up to the next whole penny. Fees and governmental taxes may be included in a completed call. All calls for which we receive answer supervision shall incur a minimum one-minute charge. GEONET relies on answer supervision to determine whether and when a call has been answered. Answer supervision is a signal sent by the carrier connecting the call to indicate the start of call. Answer supervision is generally received when a call is answered; however, answer supervision may also be generated by voicemail systems, private branch exchanges, and interexchange switching equipment. Where no answer supervision is received, we will commence billing forty (40) seconds following dial time unless the caller has terminated the call. You must notify us in writing of any disputed charges within sixty (60) days of the charges or you will have waived your right to dispute the charges.
