Christmas and New Year

Christmas Day and New Year's Day are Wednesdays this time round, and Boxing Day is a Thursday. Am I right in thinking that PN will charge for calls at the normal weekday rate on these days?

Sorry - Ben just pointed this out to me.  I think I managed to misunderstand your question Alastair.
Your best port of call is our phone tariff page: http://www.plus.net/home-broadband/tariffs/
Some destinations have varying costs depending on the time period, especially International calls.

Is that because the billing system was created before the first bank holidays were declared?  Grin
