That must be New Yawk. It's currently a very different rate structure
in Gnu England.
Here, Audio/Speech Bearer ("voice") calls are charged at the selected
tariff option, which can be flat or measured, with various calling radii
available in Metro Boston. Data bearer calls are charged at the
*measured* voice rate, which never has extended radii. Thus a call might
be free/local if voice, toll if data. Thus widespread use of DOSBS.
In Vermont, I think any inter-office ISDN data bearer call is over 30 cents
per minute! It's always cheaper to call across state lines.
