Also, at one time, long distance charges were used to subsidize local service.

Because some people still paid the old price?
Once the gravy train starts to dry up, companies get competitive. I'm sure there were lots of meetings in the board rooms where they're doing calculations of how many subscribers would they need to lose before it's no longer worth trying to charge $60 for the service.

|Wayne||It is hard to believe that phone cos still get away with charging for LD. You don't pay a premium for browsing a web site from across the country, or around the world, but you do for phone. Why?|

Major Long Distance price decrease
If anyone is paying the old $60/month for the "Unlimited Calling Canada Travel Add-On" the price has been reduced to $10/month but you have to call in or visit a dealer to get the new price. They won't do it automatically.
