What is Wireless Priority Service (WPS)?
Why do you need WPS?
WPS provides the means to get your wireless call through as quickly as possible.
How do you use WPS?
For example, you would dial: *272 703-555-1234
Everything else is automatic – your call will queue for up to 30 seconds and "grab" the next available path.
If landline networks are also congested, utilize *272 plus the GETS access number to get priority in both wireless and landline networks.
How much does WPS cost?
One-time activation fee - Free
Monthly service fee - Free
Per-minute maximum for WPS calls (*272) - $.75
WPS minutes are not charged against your basic service.
WPS charges are in addition to your plan charges.
Who is eligible for WPS?
Applicable at all levels: Federal, State, and Local
How do you order WPS?
Upon WPS approval, your POC forwards the carrier account activation information to NCS. NCS then orders WPS feature added to your basic service.
If you do not already have carrier service, then you will need to acquire basic commercial service.
