BT cuts landline to mobe charges, again

'BT's rates amongst lowest in the UK'

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." ®
