The Unanswered Question

How does the removal of unmetered local calls
square with this Videotron leaflet and others like it?

Off peak local calls to other Videotron customers come absolutely FREE. This means that between the hours of 7pm and 7am (now 6pm and 8am) weekdays, or any time at weekends or UK public holidays, you can talk to your friends and family for as long as you like and, provided they are connected to our service, your calls won't cost you a penny. There's no catch or gimmick and it's not a short-term offer - it's just one of the permanent benefits of being part of the Videotron Telephone Network.

What's more, if you are connected to an Internet Service Provider who has the Videotron Telephone Service you can surf all night or throughout the weekend with no call charges.
