increments are in seconds, not microseconds.  In IMS for example I  
think it defaults to 20 or 30 second nibbles, depending on your  
tolerances and billing increments something much larger may even make  
sense.  Doing billing in sub second increments doesn't make a lot of  
sense to me.  Remember that this is just keeping track of available  
credit so if there are multiple calls at the same time you won't go  
over balance.  Everything is still reconciled at hang up, so if you  
have a bit too much reserved from your nibble the worst that could  
happen is it could cut off calls a little too early when multiple  
calls are in progress on the same account.
