Lycamobile specialises in offering affordable calls to international numbers for users in the UK. You can still call UK landlines with their SIM cards, though, and there may be times when you need to do so. In general, it’s better to use a standard SIM with inclusive minutes to call an 01 landline on the UK. If you’re desperate, though, then you might find yourself wondering how much it costs to call an 01 number on Lycamobile.
The standard Pay As You Go rate is 12p per minute to reach 01 UK landlines. If you are on one of the bundle plans instead, then you will find that those 01 numbers are included in your tariff and that there is no additional charge.
The 01 number is typically used by businesses to enter the lucrative local markets as the 01 number gives that local feel to their business. It is similar to the 02 number that businesses in London use and has the benefit of giving their potential customers a cheaper rate when calling.
Lycamobile includes the 01 prefixes as part of their discount packages and inclusive minutes. However, any calls made to 01 outside of these packages are charged at 12p per minute. Ofcom limits the per minute charge to 13p for all providers. The 01 has 100% coverage in the UK, making it the best choice for a business number.
