Hello Mark

I've never seen such concept implemented in FRED so far (so it doesn't mean it can't exist).

AFAICT the prices can be different among zones/extensions only. And are flat.
(Not talking about post-paid invoices, etc.)

There is some matching regarding domain names, but it's used for blacklisted expressions.

Best regards
