Your phone bill is divided into separate categories to itemise your costs. Important telephone cost categories are line rental, calls to mobiles, calls to STD & local. Costs like line rental are easy to identify because they are simply stated on your bill. What is often the most complicated is calls to mobiles because they incur special charges that are used to make them look attractive in the sales process.
Important Aspects of Your Phone Bill
Flag fall is the cost of simply having your call connect and the cost of this in your total bill can be quite considerable. The other aspect is billing period.
If you make a call and you speak a mere five words, some telephone plans charge you a flag fall for this privilege. The other aspect is the frequency of the billing:
- by the min
- per 30 seconds, or
- per second
You may be on what appears to be a low rate, but if it’s charged by the minute, a 15 second call will cost the same as 60 seconds and a 61 second call will be charged for 2 minutes. Virion business VoIP call plans do not have a flag fall and calls to mobiles are billed by the second so if you speak for 23 seconds you only pay for 23 seconds.
