  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.
