Securus Technologies Dislikes Monopolies
A new and up to date topic that I have found interesting to research is the topic of the communications industry that has been growing at an exponential rate over the past several years. One of the current leading companies in the communication technology industry is Securus Technologies. Securus Technologies is a Dallas-based company that is known for their leading technology for both criminal as well as for civil justice in North America. The technology that is provided is provided for monitoring, investigation, for public safety, as well as for corrections. This company is known for helping inmates in correctional facilities all over North America connect with their family. This company believes that it is should be a right for inmates to talk with their loved ones. The loved ones should never become a victim to any crime that was acted by someone else.
As one of the top communication companies in North America, Securus has been finding facts that support some horrible accusations that other communications companies have been abusing the customer with high prices and strict terms. Securus specifically mentions Global Tel Link to be the doers of this violation. Global Tel Link has reportedly wired the communication technology to add on 30 more seconds to a phone call then the actual time. Users of Global Tel Link have also complained about the high prices that they have to pay for one phone call. It has been reported that for an hour long phone call, Global Tel Link charges over $60. As Securus Technologies controls the safety of over 1.2 million inmates across North America, this company believes that there are rights that should never be monopolized. The goal of this company is to continue making the public safe and to prevent issues like this from arising for the customer.
