About the statistics and the call tariffs of Helsinki Telephone Corporation
Note ! The Figures from October 1997 and January 1998 are from the
time when the staff modem pool capacity was 120 connections and the student
pool capacity was 60 connections. The May 1998, June 1998 and September
1998 statistics are from the new system where the staff modem pool capacity
is 60 connections and the student pool capacity is 180 connections.
In addition to these changes in the pool capacities, the pricing policy
of Helsinki Telephone Corporation has changed. Until March 18, 1998 there
was just a fixed charge per call during evening time and weekends.
However, since March 18, 1998 the tariff has been the following:
In May 1999 the call tariffs will change again. The new tariffs will be:
on weekdays 07.00-17.00: 47.0 p./call + 5.5 p./min
on weekdays 17.00-07.00 and on weekends: 47.0 p./call + 5.5 p./min for
every minute exceeding 30 minutes
It will be interesting to see, how this change will affect on evening and
weekend holding times. Probably people wont hang up after every 30 minutes
(like they do now) any more.
on weekdays 07.00-17.00: 50.0 p./call + 6.8 p./min.
on weekdays 17.00-07.00 and on weekends: 50.0 p. /call + 3.9 p./min for
every minute that exceeds 10 minutes
