I don't exactly know, beacuse the receipt doesn't specify the amount per
minute, and how it varies during the day. It's not so easy to find out.
But I can give you some samples from this last two month receipt (27.4
Eur + tax in internet calls, 28.7 hours total usage):
I have a 4 seconds call charged at .0685 Eur, plus taxes. Another one, 12'
23", 0.1642 Eur. A 1h 12' 32" was charged 1.2903 Eur. It is afordable, but
I wouldn't say free. Time is money, even if I'm just waiting without
By the way, the fixed or flat rate conection, which would allow me to
connect anytime from 18:00 to 8:00 (weekends the 24:00) I think costs
about 20 or 30 Eur a month; I'll have to check, but it is even more
expensive for my limited use.

Not if it is the first time I see the form :-)

Er... no. During on call the IP can not change. On a new call it certainly
changes. The negotiation takes part only at the begining of the call.

I suppose that web pages keep track of the user by means of cookies, but i
can not be completely sure, specially on encrypted pages of banks and
such. In such cases I think I would keep track of the IP, and even more,
record it in the transaction logs. I'm no expert on that, but that would
be my first thought.
