BT changing "evening call times"

Couldn`t think where else to put this.......
just received an email message from BT about changes to the "evening period"
Quote

effective from 1st April 2010. These include changing what we define as the evening call period for all types of calls: at the moment from 6pm-6am, but changing to 7pm-7am.

some people may miss it, and be charged for calls between 6pm and 7pm ( assumng they are normally free ) after 1st April 2010.... so thought I`d drop it in here.....

I've got Evenings & Weekends with Plusnet so wonder if they'll be following suit  Sad

Mobile networks have had those times for a long while; I'd expect it to become universal on landlines before long.

It does mean that BT will have to have implemented the changes by midday  Wink

Re: BT changing "evening call times"

Can we expect the BBC to be moving their 6pm evening news to 7pm too?

Re: BT changing "evening call times"

I did mention this in a ticket and whoever replied said that Plus were not going to change the free evening period. (Yet?) I am one of those who, when the clock hits 6pm pick up the phone; glad I am with Plus and not BT.

Re: BT changing "evening call times"

HA!.. I know why they are changing..... TV schedules... ?  Of course..... 6pm to 7pm is the "news slot".... so all those people who want to make free calls wait for the "pips" and start dialling..... Grin
BT must be losing thousands.... so switch to 7pm.... (catch all those "unsuspecting freeloaders") will be very quiet on the phone lines from 7pm onwards....... Emmerdale, Coronation Street, East Enders, Coronation street, (again) or Emmerdale, by that time, most people forget about making phone calls until the next day.... !
Great Idea BT.! ! !  Smiley
