July 2015 Talk and broadband prices updates
All quoted prices are inclusive of VAT at 20%.
Important information on price changes effective from 1 July 2015.
As of 1 July 2015, a regulatory change takes place such that calls to Unbundled Tariff Numbers will be charged under a new system that will make the cost of calling service numbers clear for everyone. The calls affected are for non-geographic numbers starting with 084, 087, 09 and 118.
They will be charged as the sum of two elements: a 'Service Charge' and an 'Access Charge'. The 'Service Charge' is decided by the business being called and is the same for all telephone users. The 'Access Charge' is set by ourselves as your telephone service provider and it is 6.9p per minute. Once this change takes place, 0845 and 0870 calls will remain inclusive for the first 70 minutes as previously, and for the relevant periods as per your calls package. After that, they will be charged at the Access Charge rate + the relevant Service Charge.
For more information on the change in charging for calls to these numbers, please visit the UK Calling website.
