Free Calls to 0870 0845 UK Premium Rate Numbers

Bookmark and Share
in UK, 0870 and 0845 are the premium rate non-geographic numbers, that means these numbers are do not tie to any UK county and can be assigned anywhere in the world by a Local UK Telephone company.

You may get these telephone numbers free of cost online. However, Up until now customers on BT’s Evening and Weekend or Anytime deals received free calls to UK landlines, but had to pay extra to call 0845 and 0870 numbers. Average charges to 0870 and 0845 non-geographic numbers starts from 5 pens and can go as high as 10 pens per minute, which is extremely costly. Its obvious that these are premium rate numbers. One of the reason some VOIP Providers give these numbers for FREE, so that i can make some money off the termination cost :-) Pretty slick business model.

However, this premium rate numbers will now be FREE, yes. BT has announced that calls to 0870 and 0845 numbers would be free to customers with inclusive call packages. With this change, BT will be the first telecoms firm to include these calls in its all-inclusive deals. Customers on its Anytime package, which costs £4.85 a month, will be not be charged for dialling 0870 and 0845 numbers. So they can phone these numbers as much as they like without worrying about the cost.

Mind you, but this is a great and big new for everyone in UK calling these premium rate numbers. Now they can make calls for FREE inclusive of their calling plans. Now if you are using Talktalk or NTL, you are still not lucky. However looking at the stiff competition in the home phone business in UK, the rest of the companies might follow BT soon.

Please note that these numbers will be FREE inclusive of the deals,that means they are still charged but in your inclusive minutes.

What I am most interested to follow is, since these numbers are largely used by Providers who offer them for FREE, will they continue to do so? How well they can manage the termination cost? will the termination cost remain the same? Only time can reveal this. In the mean time, go enjoy the free calls to 0870 0845 numbers on BT network.
