Orange landline phone charges


[link to this post]
 
Hi, Orange have changed their phone charges to correspond with BTís you now only get free phone calls between 7:00pm and 7am.

Orange standard telephone rates are considered to be the rate applied to the Orange home phone service during the day 7am-7pm.

http://www.orange.co.uk/terms/internet/homeservices/...

And you no longer get 2 hours free talk-time now only 1 hour same as BT.

**Fair Use Policy applies. Unlimited UK anytime calls includes calls of up to an hour to numbers beginning 01, 02, 03, 0845 and 0870 but excludes calls to these numbers made from the Channel Islands.

I have only just noticed this after an extra £6 went on my landline phone bill. frown

Yep, Orange sent a round-robin e-mail giving several months prior notice of these changes (as they usually do, one of their better features) though you might need to check your junk folder regularly, as they do have the habit of binning their own round-robin e-mails!

No-0ne was ever convinced by what I said, but by what they understood.

Thanks, I found the email they sent 21 April 2011, it says will apply from 26th May. I obviously didnít scrutinise it enough, I seeÖ

Inclusive calls are subject to a 60 minute maximum duration per call. To continue making inclusive calls simply hang up
and re-dial.

That makes sense, seeing how they've moved over to BT and abandoned their own equipment.

They never had their own phone kit; they are still BT WLR lines.

I never said they did, but they've probably negotiated a new package deal with BT as they've abandoned their LLU.

Exactly! I see you have now changed your tune and stumbled on the true probable cause grin; not directly cuz they abandoned their LLU but more specifically cuz they made a deal with BTw to supply their BB.

They had to make a deal because they abandoned their LLU, not the other way round.

You don't know, but you may have the last word as usual.
