Long Distance Calls

With VoIP, is there still a charge for Long Distance calls within the US?  I'm sure calls to Alaska and Hawaii could be justified as Long Distance but I'm just curious how the Internet would be considered long distance.

🔒  Don't lockout this post because I'm questioning costs or charges.  It's not a billing issue.  I only want to know the rationale behind Long Distance calls.  Is there still Long Distance charges, rates, fees, etc
