Why Do Rates Vary Within the same Country

Rate Variations within a country

The question sometimes arrises "why are they different long distance rates within the same country"

Each carrier within a country sets their own rates. Some countries have many different landline and wireless/mobile carriers.
Here is an example of only a few of the carriers and their rates from Poland.
