AT&T All for Less (AFL) business local contract coming to an end
The AT&T All For Less® (AFL) local contract will no longer be available for new orders on 6/1/22 for Business Local Calling and Long Distance. The existing base of customers on AFL discounted pricing will be grandfathered and remain on their current price plan until the end of their term/contract.
What this means to your business...
If you have an AT&T All For Less local contract (basically if you have three services with AT&T you can get this contract for your business phone lines for a reduced rate of $40/line), you will not be able to get this contract after June 1, 2022 when your contract expires; however, there are options.
Please do not procrastinate as AT&T rack rate pricing will cost several hundred dollars per line.
Let me help your business by looking at alternative choices for your business phone line needs.

Compare to current Nicor at 61 cents/therm for January. A 15% savings over today's gas supply.
And their is no cancellation fee. You get one bill from your current gas company - Nicor in this case. You'll see on the Comed bill where Direct Energy is the supplier once it's switched over - usually in a month depending on bill cycle and meter read date.
All gas issues still go to Nicor. All supply issues would go to Direct Energy whose toll free number will be on the Comed bill.
