Yes, we each pay our own phone bills.  However, you must understand that
(unlike most of Europe) we don't pay by the minute for local calls.  So
for CDN$14/month I get a no frills data line that has no time limit.
(Although I must admit I also don't have to pay ISP fees as I connect to
the Internet through work during off hours).

Sounds painful.  I can see why you'd want a better way.
