Fishers Island Long Distance Calling

After our posting in the July Foghorn, we have had good success in helping subscribers save on their National and International Long Distance bills.  

It is quick and easy to switch, and our team can assist you in making this cost-saving change.  If you are already a Fishers Island Long Distance subscriber, you are already experiencing the savings, and we thank you for your subscription.  If you are not sure which long-distance plan you have, give us a call, and we can help you identify your Long Distance Carrier.  

Fishers Island Telephone offers a National Plan to help lower your long-distance bill with an offering of $17.00 per month.  This special offer provides you with the first 500 minutes of calls for free, and then after the 500 minutes the cost is only 3 cents a minute!  You will also notice an improvement in the quality of the call as Fishers Island Long Distance utilizes state-of-the-art technology to complete your call.  Our International Plan is only an additional $3.00 per month and the per-minute rates can be as low as 3 cents a minute depending on the country you are calling.  

If you are an AT&T Long Distance subscriber, you may want to compare your AT&T bill and review the cost per minute for making calls off the island, which are long-distance calls.  By switching, you will be surprised at how much money you will save! 

If you have any questions about the program or would like to make the change, give us a call at the telephone office (631) 788-7001 x4 or send an e-Mail to

AT&T Long Distance Troubles

There is an issue with Long Distance calls from Fishers Island subscribers completing some long distance calls using the AT&T Long Distance Network.  Subscribers signed up and receive their bills directly from AT&T, customers need to contact AT&T Customer Service at 1-800-288-2020, with your account number ready, and open a trouble ticket. 

Calls are being sent from Fishers Island Telephone’s network into AT&T’s network and are being received into their network. Unfortunately, FITC cannot open tickets for AT&T Long Distance Subscribers.

If you have any questions, please contact 1-631-788-7001 extension 4.

Exciting FIUC News Fiber is coming!

Happy Holidays! Give the Gift that Keeps on Giving
High Speed Fiber To The Home!

Fishers Island Telephone has received tremendous support for the future of the Islands Internet!! We are almost there. Today, we need just 15 more first adopters to move this project forward! Can you think of a better gift to your household other than super-fast reliable fiber internet? The sign-up is fast and easy so even if you started the process and needed more time, now is the opportunity to become one of the first 50 adopters that will enjoy the benefits package of High-Speed Internet, telephone, and long distance for one special price. After the first 50 have been reached, these special benefits will expire. Sign up now to enjoy High Speed Fiber Internet!

Why Upgrade?

As you know, the Internet has become an essential service and the demand for faster speeds to support the growing number of devices is rising every year. Because the copper cable that is delivering your telephone and internet services today is approaching the end of its useful life, the Telephone company is preparing to launch a major construction project to upgrade the Island residents and businesses with state-of-the-art high speed fiber optic cable to the premise.

What are we hoping to learn from this survey?

With the EVERNET II project, we are strategically evaluating the zones with the highest demand for service where we will plan to engineer and construct our fiber network first. We are looking to identify 50 first adopters to begin the construction of the multi-year Fiber To The Home (FTTH) network project. The information that is collected will aid us in determining where to commence the deployment of this new high speed fiber network.

What can you do to help?

Registering your address and agreeing on a product, you will be one of the first to receive Fishers Island Telephone EVERNET II FTTH High Speed Internet Services.  It’s really that simple!

Once enough registrations have been expressed in a specific zone, we will begin the planning to expand our service network to your neighborhood. There are many resources required to bring a fiber-optic network to a neighborhood and Fishers Island Telephone will target the construction to follow the demand to deliver EVERNET II fiber to areas of the highest demand first.

Sign Up Today before the special pricing and benefits are gone.

Thank you for your continued support of Fishers Island Telephone Corporation.
