Over here in Belgium (as in most of Europe) we pay telephone charges on
all local calls, Internet-related or not. Currently for off-peak calls
(6:30 PM - 8:00 AM), Belgacom (local PTT monopoly) charges 6 BEF (approx
$0.20) for each 12 minute unit! Looks like the US is catching up on the
rest of the world on this one.
