Local pay phone calls may cost more A local call from a pay tele- phone may cost more than a quar- ter, and the duration of the call may vary from pay phone to pay phone before callers must hang up or deposit more money. That's the word from the Delaware Public Service Com- mission (PSC), who wants to. alert consumers to the deregulation of pay telephones. An order by the Federal Communications Com- missions states that owners of pay phones may now set their own rates for local coin calls. The Delaware PSC is encouraging consumers to read the information carefully on the pay telephone. The cost of a local coin call and the phone number of the pay tele- phone should be displayed promi- nently. Callers should telephone the provider of the pay telephone if they experience problems. The PSC also warns consumers that directory assistance calls may also cost a fee that may be different than the cost of the local coin call.
