How much does it cost to call an 0871 number on BT?

Calls to 0871 telephone numbers can be confusing. These telephone numbers are classified as non-geographic telephone numbers. They are typically used by large businesses and some public sector organisations. They are classified as premium rate numbers. They do not allow the caller to identify the city or town that they are calling in the same way as 01 or 02 numbers do. There are two parts to a charge that is incurred when calling 0871 numbers. It is important to point out that 0871 numbers are not usually included in a call package offered by BT, therefore you will need to pay the cost of the call. The numbers are made up of the network operator (BT’s) access charge, which is currently set at 12p per minute. You will also pay an additional service charge which can vary.
