Where in the world am I? (6)

I live in a country where there are no telephone bills.

It's a kind of 'honour system' - once a month you are expected to remember that your account is due, and pop along to the bank or post office to pay it.

I, of course, frequently forget. It doesn't help that there seems to be no standard deadline for final payment, or for subsequent disconnection - I've been cut off on the 22nd of the due month and on the 12th of the following month, and on most days in between.

It's a curious system, to be sure.
