Arvig-owned Tekstar settles 'traffic-pumping' accusations
Tekstar Communications, owned by Perham-based Arvig, agreed to pay $146,000 and reduce its intrastate switched access rates as part of a settlement with the Minnesota Department of Commerce.
The agreement settles charges that Tekstar violated state telecommunication law by engaging in telephone "traffic pumping."
The settlement, which will be submitted to the Public Utilities Commission for approval, does not include any finding or admission of wrongdoing by Tekstar.
