Our Opinion:

They have some of the lowest state-to-state rates found anywhere: 2.7 cents per minute. The rate is 1.9 cents per minute for all calls to other Pioneer customers! (Pioneer was given an extra point on their rating for this.) Pioneer is known for their excellent customer service. They have good discount rates for both international and in-state calls.

Other Fees:

There is an additional 99-cent charge if your bill is under $15 per month, but that is waived if you select the on-line billing option.
