Telephone call charges

Actually, though you are correct about it being cheaper to call London than Sheffield from John O' Groats, that is not the whole story - BT is not the only telephone network! On Mercury, which I now use, Leeds and Sheffield are both low-cost destinations, on a par with London - so my call charges are no different. A while back, Genesis asked me for a comparison of the call charges between the two systems, so here goes. To keep things simple, off-peak only, ex VAT, local should all go BT. BT charges reduce the more calls you make, hence 3 figures


Up to 56km, BT 1.87/1.77/1.72 quid/hr, Mercury 1.50, 1.47 low-cost Over 56km, BT low-cost 3.16/2.85/2.76, Mercury 2.17 Over 56km, BT 4.33/3.78/3.66, Mercury 2.37
