Thanks for the reply...but I was referring to the redial after 60 minutes,  hence the bold

Re: Any Time Calling Plan Removed

Look at the tariff guide, old plans no longer sold show chargeable after 60 minutes, new ones have no mention.

Re: Any Time Calling Plan Removed

The new BT plans (on https://www.bt.com/landline/deals) are very disappointing - very limited options and more expensive. It looks like the 700 minute plan will require an additional £7 and the unlimited call plan will require an additional £15.  Virgin Media appears to have better calling plan options.

They are good value against the pence per minute rate, 20p per minute works at at £12 per hour.

They may be against the new 20p tariff but not against what they are closing.

A large number of people will save money though, people have unlimited anytime calls as it was the only way to have calls inclusive through the day, either that or wait until after 7pm or at weekends.

So if you're paying £9.99 which was the standard price for unlimited anytime calls and change to 500 minutes, you still have your day time calls inclusive, you now have free calls to UK mobiles instead of half price, no call setup fee and paying £4.99 less per month or 700 minutes for £7 is a £2.99 saving, that's a good thing for some.

The new plans might not suit everyone but it's not a price rise when some will save, BT are just getting rid of multiple old legacy plans and making things uniform, saves any confusion and keeps things simple.

Re: Any Time Calling Plan Removed

Regrading the comment that it is good value against the pence per minute rate, fixed recurring revenue-based services must offer better value than the pay as go service. Otherwise, mobile phone monthly contracts, season tickets and such services will not be attractive. Unfortunately, BT have been making drastic changes and applying steep price increase to their calling plans since October 2019, resulting in confusions even among the BT staff, limited and unattractive calling plan options compared to other service providers, and in huge price increase even compared to BT’s previous pricing model. The service is no longer attractive, especially to me with 4 BT mobile (unlimited) packages in the household.

That's the problem in a nutshell - almost universal access to mobiles is rendering landlines redundant for making calls. I've retained My Anytime Calls solely because it's costing little peanuts but I could easily drop it and will do at some stage. All landline providers are having to come to terms with this; I'm not sufficiently interested to be aware of what others are doing but it seems to me that BT are typically making a drama out of a crisis.
