BT is cutting charges for calls made from residential landlines to mobile phones. The "CallMobile" package, which costs £1.50 a month is available from today, 1 September.

The cost of a daytime call to an Orange mobile will fall from 13.60 pence to 10.20 pence - a 25 per cent cut. An evening call to an O2 number will go from 11.81 pence per minute to 8.86 pence a 25 per cent fall.

Gavin Patterson, BT group managing director, Consumer and Ventures, said: "The introduction of CallMobile, which represents the next round of price cuts for customers calling mobile numbers makes BT’s rates among the lowest in the UK. These changes will make a real difference to some callers’ monthly bills.

For example, those BT customers who take advantage of the reduced call rates, nominate a frequently called mobile number as a Best Friend number and subscribe to CallMobile could end up paying forty per cent less on what they might have been paying prior to September 1." ®
