What I want to know is, does this 10 hour a month thing apply when dialing in to a LAN? Telecom wouldn't be able to tell the difference so I'm guessing any data calls that last for anything beyond 10 hours a month to a local number get charged for it? Or has monitoring phone lines for this a thing of the past?
I ask because I experiment a lot with AAC and other codec audio links for broadcast radio. I usually use broadband for this but I'm pottering with a backup via dialup but won't bother if there's a charge for it still.
