interval (charges) / currency per minute
Explanation:
If this is in the context of the German phone system, commonly a certain amount of money is charged by minute (even for local calls). There used to be things like the "8-Minuten-Takt", where 20 Pfennig (the long time staple for charging phone calls) would be sufficient for an eight minute local call. With deregulation, civic pressure and European common market forces, this "Takt" has gone through a lot of changes. Some companies now arrange for leased lines with other providers and then offer the

"option of individual tarifs without interval (charges)"

interval


Explanation:
Takt = time (sequence) -> interval
For lack of a wider context, I think what they probably mean here is an individual wage structure without an interval for regular review or increase.
