Default 18866 VoIP charges

For UK calls 18866 charge me 1p connection and nothing per minute. But for
calls to 0800 numbers they charge me 1p connection plus 1p per minute.
That's an anomaly.

That's an anomaly.

If it is an anomaly, there must be a rule to deviate from. Where or
what is the rule for 18866 0800 numbers?

If you are manually dialing the number why are dialing the 18866
prefix? If you are using an Orchid, or similar box or dialer
equipped phone, why have you programmed / allowed it to use 18866
for 0800 calls?

One could argue that the "rule" being deviated from is that 0800 numbers
are free to call. This rule may not apply to "18866 0800 calls", but
then 18866 are free to charge whatever they choose.


Are you sure?


No, which is why I said "may".
