Starting June 1st through June 6th, Great Plains Communications will be converting your information to a new billing system. Our goal is to make this process as easy as possible for our customers. The following information is designed to provide insight into this process and how you will pay your bill and manage your account moving forward after the billing conversion.
Q: Why are you converting my billing information?
A: The conversion will provide a more streamlined experience with multiple convenient payment options and online account management tools including a voice payment gateway. If you sign up for auto-pay after the conversion, you will also be able to receive a one-time $10 bill credit.

A: The conversion process will take place June 1 – June 5. You will have access to the revised billing system on June 6.
