Costs to the Customer
1300 numbers come with many advantages over a standard landline and without any significant cost to the customer. Calls to 1300 numbers from a fixed line are not timed.
1300 numbers are not only easier for customers to remember, they’re also comparable in price to a standard local call. Calls made from mobile phones will be charged by their respective mobile provider.
Costs to the Provider
For the provider of a 1300 number, if the call is made from the local area to the 1300 number, the first 15 minutes are free to the service owner. Should the call exceed 15 minutes only a small per minute charge is applicable.
