That's what I said! .46*60=27.6 cents.
Not .46 dollar ($0.46) but .46 cents ($.0046) per minute.
Oddly enough this is fairly close to "typical" busy hour cost, especially
in a large metro area. If POTS were measured, this would be a reasonable
rate for local calls, before applying off-peak discounts.
But with ISDN to be measured and POTS flat rate, they're not interested
in selling much ISDN!
