_Anything_ that that is 'other than the normal practice' has an
additional cost/effort associated with it. This applies regardless of
the industry, market,or service provider. Telcos, and other regulated

recouping those additional costs.. *OR* the profits therefrom, if they
can sell it at 'above cost'.
