Is Koodo the only carrier with a rate per minute plan or are all carriers like that?

Correct. Per minute billing is the standard for all carriers in Canada.

Koodo was actually the last carrier to switch to per minute billing

When did this actually happen? (Since when did Koodo switch to per minute billing?) Also, what about the US? Are they all per minutes?

Actually, Fido was the last carrier to switch over to per minute billing on July 4, 2012. Koodo switched over to per minute billing on February 2, 2012.

I believe that is per minute as well. However I'd wait for someone to confirm.

AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile all use per minute billing.

Per second billing is a thing of the long-gone past, even for landline VoIP. Hit 6 or so wrong numbers, or quickie calls a day and your 200-minute-a-month plan is getting full. Some budget US carriers even charge single minutes for local (all US) calls, 2x minutes for outside US or roaming, but typically the per minute rate is low.
