How Plusnet landline calculate call charges

  • Calls are limited to one minute and are rounded up to the next minute.
  • The setup cost is added if applicable.
  • The total is rounded to the nearest penny.

Fixed fee calls have a fixed cost for a portion (or all) of the call (e.g. 5p for the first 5 minutes or 25p per call). The access price is rounded up to the nearest minute and the service charge is rounded up to the nearest second for calls to service numbers commencing 084, 087, 09, and 118. These calls have no setup fees.

Time periods for calls

The following definitions are used to determine inclusive call times and chargeable call rates for Plusnet Home Phone packages.

Time period When it applies
Daytime Monday to Friday - 7am - 7pm
Evening Monday to Friday - 7pm - 7am
Weekends All day Saturday & Sunday

If a call spans multiple time periods,

  • Chargeable calls that span time periods will be charged at the applicable rates for each segment of the call.
  • Calls that cross between inclusive and chargeable time periods (in either direction) are charged just for the chargeable portion of the call; the call set up cost is not applied.

Inclusive call length

  • After 60 minutes, inclusive calls to UK numbers become charged.
  • After 60 minutes, included calls to international lines start charged.
  • Calls to Plusnet Support are free for the duration of the call, regardless of duration.

Inclusive calls that become chargeable are paid at the applicable rate until the call is terminated. The call setup cost is waived.
