I have just returned to BT and have just configured BT Broadband Talk.
When logged in, it says my tariff is:
BT Broadband Talk Anytime
Is that Evenings and Weekends or as it seems to suggest Anytime of the day or night?
Is this standard now on the unlimited package or am I being charged extra in error?
Nowhere seems to mention the BT BB Talk Anytime package, just evenings and weekends, so that is where I am getting confused.
Don't want to make a bunch of calls and then realise it was all chargeable.
Hope someone can help, thanks
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, I found that page too.
Sadly it starts off with the right headline then starts talking about other services and old services so sadly the page is of no use whatsoever 😞
Thanks for trying though
There is BT broadband + talk anytime (talk on your landline anytime).
There is a broadband talk anytime option (from memory £5 pcm), that is talk on the hubphone anytime.
Unless there are a lot of phone calls going on in most homes, talking "anytime" on a landline would probably suffice, so I suspect few have taken up the "anytime" on the hubphone.
The hubphone can be used free 'anytime' in the evening and at weekends.
It's all very confusing!
I didn't order anything extra, but when I goto my BT BBT account it does say "anytime"...which seems to suggest...well......anytime, not part of the time 🙂
However, the lady from the BT BBT department says nope, I am on Evenings and Weekends, which is what is meant to be part of my BT BB Option 3 package.
So why it says "Anytime" is ANYones guess 🙂
I will have to wait and see when the bill comes in, but I didn't ask for anytime on the BT BBT line so I won't be paying for it.
Someone needs to look into why that is so confusing.
Anyhoo Question answered, thanks to all that chipped in.
I would say go online to your a/c and view your calling plan. Unfortunately, for me and judging by this forum many others, the online a/c access is still belly up, so I cant do it.
BT seems hopeless at producing straightforward, easy-to-find advice.
I've spent ages looking for UK daytime call charges using broadband talk on this site. Typically, charges to mobiles and international are provided - but no mention of UK (if, like me, you have the free evening and weekend plan). I gather that the charges are the same as BT's regular - but please, BT, WHY NOT JUST ANSWER THE OBVIOUS QUESTION THAT CUSTOMERS MIGHT HAVE BY PROVIDING THIS INFORMATION IN THE SAME PLACE AS THAT ABOUT MOBILES/INTERNATIONAL!
Someone else has posted the same enquiry as I, having spent ages looking for it on BT's site in vain. Does BT set out to confuse???
is page 28 here of any interest

Why am i getting charged for using my broadband line to make calls? im alredy paying a monthly subscription for the line so why chrge more? money grabbing **bleep** thts all, whats the point in giving people hub phones at all? wasnt it supposed to be free to make calls using your broadband line?
it is free but only in the evening and at weekends. it is also cheaper for international calls than standard landline
