  • One-time activation charge: $11/pager
  • Monthly rental fees for Southern California and nationwide pager coverage: Vary based on vendor fees and the services that are ordered.

NOTE: If pager services are discontinued, the leased pagers must be returned to ITS to avoid vendor charges, unless the pager was purchased by the customer.
