Reviews » Pioneer long distance

The company is based in Portland, ME and has been an active phone service provider in the US since 1989, being one of the oldest smaller companies to provide low cost 1+ long distance and other related services such as toll free or calling cards. Like most other providers displayed on this website Pioneer is able to offer such affordable rates as a result of automating some of their operations (such as the online signup process) and keeping advertising costs down. One particularity of their plans is the lower rate charged for calling other Pioneer customers.

We recommend this company for their longevity on the telecom market, good rates and generally good attitude towards customers. Also, one other thing to consider is that Pioneer haven't raised long distance rates since 1989!
