When calling from a landline your call will be charged just at our rate. Your telecom provider will only apply a connection fee: BT applies a minimum connection fee of 5,4p per call only if the cost of the call is less than 5,4p. NTL charges 5p and Telewest charges 6p for 08-numbers and 10p for 09-numbers:

Connection fee (only when applicable) + Number of seconds x Rate/60 seconds

Calls are billed per seconds. VAT is already included.
Example from a BT landline:
A 30 seconds call via our 5p/min access number would cost you 2,5p: the cost of the call is 2,5p which is less than the minimum connection fee and so BT will charge the 5,4p minimum. But if the call lasts 10 minutes, the cost will be 50p. As this total is above the minimum, nothing extra is added. The calls to our access number will conveniently appear in your regular phone bill. That's all you pay.
Do I pay when my call is unanswered or the line is engaged?
The billing of your calls via is done by your telephone provider, so they will conveniently appear on your regular phone bill. Unfortunately, their billing system start counting once you hear the tariff announcement, even if the call is unanswered or the line is engaged. Regrettably we cannot influence such billing policy. We advise to hang up a short period after you hear an engaged or unanswered ringing tone.
