Have you never heard of long-distance calling? It's where you pay based on the destination of your call and is ubiquitous on landlines. They don't charge you based on the distance you are from the telco itself. Traditionally they have charged you for the DISTANCE OF YOUR CALL FROM END TO END, which is really a much better analogy for what the GP said than your "distance your call is from the tower" idea.

Nondeterminism means never having to say you are wrong.
