Is evening calls charged at 24p a minute?

As per subject line.
A 1 minute call to my dad cost 24p for a local call(if local counts as a 01207 number calling a 0191 number). This seems to be expensive.

There is a set up fee of 15p and then it is charged at 9p a minute.
If you were to use http://www.18185.co.uk/info.php (and you can do whilst still having your Home Phone with Plusnet) then the same call would cost just 5p.

I used to remember peak rate was from 8am to 6pm and an hour's call cost £2.40, off peak was 6pm to 8am and cost 90p per hour and weekends cost 60p per hour. I think this was before broadband. I didn't know it had all changed.

I thought BT started charging a call connection fee in 2006(ish), I can't imagine Plusnet were charging a connection fee before BT were (that's if Plusnet were doing home phone back then).  I'm sure I also recall s time when all the homephone service providers billed per second.  Lips_are_sealed

To clarify: for 'differed', read 'risen'. Actually, 'shot up' would be more accurate.

I always thought the minimum call charge of 5p for the first five minutes or less was far better but I suppose they never made as much profit from that especially when they brought in inclusive calls.
