As a user of a regular ADSL connection I have the pleasure of continuing to receive a monthly telephone bill from Telstra. With my February 2011 bill I received a nice letter from the Executive Director, Customer Service and Sales at Telstra informing me that from the 20th March 2011 ‘We will now bill all timed calls in one-minute blocks of time, which means that the charge for the call is automatically rounded up to the nearest minute.’
What does this really mean? Simple the consumer will pay more to receive the same service, even the Telstra CEO has been reported as saying that extra revenue would be ‘modest’ while other industry analysts have placed the cost of the change closer to a $100 million revenue increase per year.
Thanks Telstra – the value proposition of VoIP just got even better.
