Decided to let them know how I felt about the choice
Quote:
I notice that you have decided to provide an 0844 number for your Adult helpline. Are you aware of the extortionate costs of contacting these numbers? Via a Mobile (which most of the population now have) the Access Charge (charged on top of the per min rate) can be anything from 45 p per minute upwards! This would make a 1 min call to you cost 50p per minute. I think the average caller would be sent into a Panic when they got their phone bill after calling you. Why would you use such a number?
