Overcharged more than £50 for International Call when signed up to Anytime International 300

 

Hello,

 

I have been overcharged more than £50 when making a call to South Korea even though I spoke for less than 60 minutes.

I checked with Plusnet Helpline who confirmed with me that South Korea was included in the list of countries exempt from charges with Anytime International 300 and that I would need to phone less than 60 minutes. My call was only 53 minutes.

Also if I am going to be charged due to Plusnet's error,  being charged around £1.00 a minute is a bit steep. 

I hope to receive a refund immediately for this, once I can actually get through to the helpline.

@captainmain72 

Have you checked that you have not exceeded 300 minutes, including this call, in the billing month?

This begs the question whether this add on has been properly applied to your account.

Thanks for your post @captainmain72 and welcome to our Community Forums.

I've looked into this for you and I can see the call you made was to a South Korean mobile number.

I'm afraid that calls to a mobile phone in the USA and Canada are the only countries which would be inclusive of your call plan: https://www.plus.net/help/legal/residential-phone-tariffs/#anytime-international-discounted-internat...

I hope this helps.

From 31st October 2022, I no longer have a regular presence here as I’ve moved on to a new role.
