People have already made plenty of comments about the $2 charge for
calls to 1-800 numbers bit, so I won't go there. However, if you plan
on making calls to Canada more frequently, and you have broadband
service already, you might want to consider just ditching the local and
LD phone company altogether and going with one of the many VoIP
providers. Nearly all of them include unlimited calls to Canada as part
of their monthly charge for the service, along with the entire US. The
monthly cost can range from $20 to $40 depending on who you go with,
usually on par with the cost of local phone service with a decent
feature set.
