Great Plains Communications Long-Distance Support

At Great Plains Communications, we’ve been working hard alongside customers and regulators to address issues with call performance of long-distance or cellular calls across our network. Find out what you can do to address these issues and how to spot drops in service performance!

How to Address Network Problems

Unfortunately, many Great Plains Communications customers have experienced issues receiving incoming long-distance or cellular calls on their Great Plains Communications local number. While we have been working hard for many months with customers and regulators to assess the issues, some problems seem to persist.

Luckily, these problems are not caused by the Great Plains Communications network, but instead by how some calls are being routed by the original carrier.

What Can You Do?

Please communicate with the person making the call to contact their long-distance or cellular provider, inform them of the issue and have them trace the call. Some common issues are as follows:


Call does not complete


Poor call quality


Goes directly to a recording


Rings and then disconnects


Sends bogus caller ID information


Goes to a fast busy signal*

*Fast busy signals indicate no call transmission has taken place.

If the originating provider feels the issue is not their fault, encourage them to contact Great Plains Communications directly at Call 855-853-1483.

If you are dissatisfied with the response of the originating provider or who would like Great Plains Communications to offer further assistance, click below to reach us now. We are happy to assist you.


File a Complaint

If you’ve contacted the originating carrier and the routing issues were not corrected, customers can file a complaint about the provider with the Nebraska Public Service Commission by calling Call 1-800-526-0017 or by visiting their website, or the website of whichever state the phone resides in.
