Inter and Intra
state Long distance
my high-school Latin class I learned that Inter meant "between"
and that Intra meant "within" -- so Inter-state
long distance is a long distance call between two states
and an Intra-state call is long-distance within a state
-- calling, for instance, from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia.
you choose a long distance carrier, you will often find
the only rate listed is the interstate rate. But your bill
will also reflect intrastate, local toll calls and international
long distance calls.
the lowest rate you see advertised may not mean the lowest
total phone bill for you!
