GETS Costs

There is no charge to subscribe to the Government Emergency Telecommunications Service (GETS); the only charge for GETS is usage. GETS calls are currently billed at a rate of 7 to 10 cents per minute (depending on the carrier and other factors) for calls within the United States and its territories, Canada, and most of the Caribbean. International calls are billed at commercial rates, though international calling privileges are restricted to specific cards authorized by an organization's Point of Contact.
