It seems as though every day the FCC, international regulatory authorities and the telecommunications industry itself change the rules. For example, the FCC and major long distance companies arrived at an agreement on June 1, 2000, after five years of negotiation, reducing the access fees that long distance companies paid to LECs, passing the savings on to consumers. This change was widely publicized, however, in many countries, pricing can change with less fanfare on a sliding scale. Additionally, the burden of tariff paperwork can be overwhelming.
