The same could be said of Taxes. We get excise taxes and then they add GST as well.

They are not too much different to Aussie costs. Local calls are charged over there unless you have a plan for free local calls which costs about $49

I wondered the first time I went to ozz in 1980 and stayed at relatives places that the fones never rung. I asked the question. "Cricky sport, make fone calls?? They cost 20c / call here not like in kiwiland where they are free."

People sort of overlook that fact..

The only reason they are free here is because they struck a deal otherwise we would have to pay like every other country
