Callers will ring your Premium Rate Number and are charged the Premium Rate Number cost. However, the call's actual cost will depend on their service provider and if they are calling from a mobile. Each minute of the call, or part thereof, generates revenue for you, which is then credited to your Telecoms World account.
Ofcom regulations have made things clearer for the consumer when calling 09 Premium Rate Numbers. The costs are broken into two parts - the service charge and the access charge.
The service charge is the rate you have chosen for callers to pay when calling the 09 Premium Rate Number. It is charged per pence or minute.
The access charge is an additional rate set by the caller’s phone service provider and will vary from service provider to service provider.
You are obligated to display these service charges alongside your number wherever you use it, such as on your website or marketing materials.
Ofcom recommends using the following format:
"Calls cost x pence per minute (ex. VAT), plus your phone company's access charge."
If you charge per call, rather than per minute, the recommended format is:
"Calls cost x pence / £x per call (ex. VAT), plus your phone company's access charge."
I just started a new business. We were looking for advice after finding Telecoms World on Google. I used the call back system, which was fantastic. Received a call from Sam in approx 20 seconds from inputting our number. He was very knowledgeable and friendly and not pushy in any way. He delivered a 1st class service! We signed up on a basic package to try it out first. Sam said we would be set up within 24-48. We were working the same evening. The web interface very easy to use, and we already love it. An excellent company would highly recommend!!!
