Callwave Hikes Rates

Santa Barbara-based Callwave has hiked the rates for the firm's fax services, telling customers of the service that it has raised rates to $12.95 a month and a limited number of pages, up from what was previously $7.95 for unlimited service. The move, which was announced late last week in an email to customers, comes shortly after the firm cut nearly half of its employees in a massive realignment last Thursday. The new $12.95 rate plans cut the number of pages a FAX number can receive to 300 pages, with 200 pages sent; unlimited service now costs $59.95 a month.
