Phone and fax to 070059 numbers in the UK

WHY HAS THIS PAGE BEEN CHANGED?

This current page is now shorter and designed to be clearer. I taken the opportunity to correct or or two errors of fact which I had previously made; these errors did not effect our calling policy to these numbers.

If I telephone a customer in the USA (for example) from my BT line using
  * our international service, I pay under 3p per minute
  * a BT service, I pay about 5p to 20p per minute
  * an 070059 number, I pay 35p per minute.
  * an 070401 number, I pay 50p per minute.

If I call a UK number from my BT line using
  * its geographic number, I pay between 1.5 and 8p per minute
  * via an 070059 number, I pay 35p per minute.
  * via the 070401 number, I pay 50p per minute.

You can register one of these numbers at no cost to yourself and ask people to call you on it, and the calls will be put through to you. The intent is that they are "personal numbers" that you can divert from one phone to another, but many callers are unaware of how much it costs to call them and unless you're going to pre-alert people when you hand out your number, you're likely to have some very upset contacts.

Part of my remit is to set the policy for handling sales calls at Well House Consultants. We will not usually comply with emailed requests to call people on 070 numbers, nor to fax large amounts of information to them - rather we will respond by email, or ask for our contact to give us a geographic number through which we can get in touch.
It wasn't easy to find out what making a call to these numbers will cost. The following links are to pages that list BT price bands for 070 and 09 numbers, and also give current pricing for each band.
