Incarcerated individual have voiced their unanimous opinions in the positive regarding their applause for the connection to their families and friends. It makes all the difference in the world to them to have this capability.
Over the past several months, a competitor, GTL, has disseminated scandalous lies and fabrications about how their company, GTL, has a far better phone service and pricing systems that are better. The examples and “proofs” that they used are straight out of the Twilight Zone. There is no way that they can compete with Securus and their preposterous examples are pure fantasy.
Securus had seen enough, so they decided to throw out a challenge to GTL and suggested that both companies place their metrics into the public arena with valid proofs. The final result would be decided by a disinterested impartial third party. Once the result was in there would be no doubt as to who the winner would be.
As soon as that challenge was publically issued, the silence from the other side was ominous. For a few weeks there was no sound from GTL, and the finally they quietly declined to take part in the challenge.
