Call Pricing with Broadband Freedom – Make the Right Call

Broadband with Phoneline

All of our call packages include broadband with a phone line. You need an active line for any reliable broadband service to supply broadband to your property. However, whether you have an active house phone on this line is completely up to you. Either way, we can set up a line rental to your property if needed.

You’ll want to see some rates before you decide whether our call packages are right for you. Luckily, we’ve got just what you need, together with some valuable information as a bonus. We’ll tell you vital information before we give you a full list of our calling rates. Let’s start with minimum charges!

Minimum Charge

Broadband Freedom will only charge you for actual calls made outside of the 100 free minutes you get with our broadband and call packages. Sometimes, other providers will add a minimum charge to your calls, often when it costs less than their minimum fee. A “Call Set Up Fee” is added on top of the pence per minute rate of your call.

Set Up Fees

Good news! Broadband Freedom leaves call setup fees to others. Most providers won’t tell you when signing up to their call packages about the extra charge they add on to “set up” your call. This charge is incurred the second your call is connected.

Broadband Freedom prides itself on honest and clear pricing models. You get what you see! You won’t get charged setup fees with our call packages and prices are subject to the rates we show below. All of our bundles are charged the same way. Whether you sign up to our 18 month broadband deals or no contract broadband, calls rates are the same for all of our valued customers.

Call Packages Pricing

It’s no secret that “Local” and “National” rates vary. The reason is simply down to geography simply because the country has been split into areas by BT. You get charged at local rate when you make a call to someone whose line is in the same area as yours and adjacent areas.

National rates are charged when you make a call to someone who is not in either of the specified areas mentioned above. So, if you call someone whose line is not in your area or next to it, you should expect to be charged at “National” rate.


Our competitive call bundles at Broadband Freedom also include 100 Free minutes each month on your landline (unless you choose to use them on your mobile).

Prices quoted in pence per minute.

Standart Rate Evening Rate Weekend Rate
Local calls to UK landlines 10p 10p 10p
National calls to UK landlines 10p 10p 10p

Yes… that’s right! It doesn’t matter if you make a call to a family member down the road or in another region of the country, local and national rates are the same in our call packages!

Mobile Calls

Our competitive call bundles also include 100 Free minutes each month on your mobile (unless you choose to use them on landline).

Billing for Call Packages 

Broadband Freedom is committed to help you save money for all customers who sign up to our broadband and call packages. On top of the MONTHLY 100 FREE minutes that you receive for landline or mobile, you’ll also pay for the calls you make. The latter may seem obvious, but most providers round up call duration to the nearest minute.

We promise that you won’t pay for a second more than what you used during a call. Most of our calls are billed to four decimal places. This ensures that we charge you accurately and fairly.

BT may charge a setup fee for special calls and directory enquiries charges may warrant an increase to the nearest minute. All quoted prices are exclusive of VAT and line rental charges are included in each of our broadband packages and are charged a month in advance. All of our calls and any charges related to BT are subject to arrears billing. 

For further information please contact our support at:

UK Non-Geographic Numbers & 0870

Mobile numbers or any other numbers that do not have a physical line are called non-geographic numbers. Any calls made to mobile numbers, Premium Rate Service Numbers or Number Translation Services will be charged, no matter where you are in the UK. Please note that Broadband Freedom does not price Premium Rate Service (PRS) or Number Translation Services (NTS).

PRS (Premium Rate Service)

As the name suggests, PRS numbers are quite expensive calls! The reason for this is due to the many services they offer, charges of which vary and largely depend on the service provider you’re calling. All PRS numbers begin with “09”. We advise you to contact any PRS provider before you dial that number. Some examples of Premium Rate Services include:

  • Adult entertainment
  • Charity donations
  • Chat services
  • Competitions and quizzes
  • Directory Inquiries
  • Mobile games
  • 087 business information lines

Number Translation Services (NTS)

Initially used to allow callers to dial a local call irrespective of the location of the recipient, NTS helped people save money but is now considered a way of making money for most phone companies. Usually, NTS numbers begin with 08 and callers are often charged more for 08 numbers than 01, 02 or 03 (the latter is charged at national rate).
