After almost a decade of paying a quarter for a local phone call in the US, the price of using payphones will likely to increase to 35 cents.
Thanks to a recently issued Federal Communications Commission Payphone Order, payphone calling rates will be determined by local market conditions. Customers will have to top up their quarters with dimes - the hardest coin for payphone systems to handle because of their small size and lightweight.
UK-based Mars Electronics International develops electronic money handling systems and coin recognition technology for the telecomms industry. Industry sales manager David Schwab said: ?Adding more dimes to the equation means faster filling coin boxes and more mechanical coin chute jams.?
