These transport costs are often in the form of a per minute charge based on the chargable distance or mileage between the customer's end office and the end office to which the carrier's POP is connected, for example.
That is to say, transport rates for originating traffic may be determined on the basis of routing all originating traffic through only one of the available POP's, while transport costs for terminating traffic are determined on the basis of assigning each end office to the available POP which presents the lowest transport cost.
With such a call, the transport rate is, in part, based upon the chargable distance, that is the mileage, between end office 14a which is a connection point for existing POP 18 and end office 14d.
