Reprogramming the clocks on correctional facilities phones unlawfully adds 15 or 36 seconds to phone calls which are charged to taxpayers. GTL was also charging rates that were higher that the rate caps or under their tariffs. The rate caps were enacted in a 1998 order. Calls were double billed and that is not permitted under any circumstances. There was also artificial inflation in various amounts of money to calls after they were rated.

Securus will be releasing a series of reports over the next 6 months exposing GTL in an attempt to shame them into using better business practices.
