It’s Time for Lower Cost Mobile Calls to 1800, 13 & 1300 Numbers
Alltel has become an active supporter of ACCAN’s Fair Calls for All campaign. This campaign is aimed at getting the big three mobile carriers to provide calls to 1300 numbers, 13 numbers, 1800 numbers at the same rate as landlines. ACCAN is the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network, so not surprisingly the initial focus of this campaign has been on the high cost paid by consumers to dial these numbers from mobiles. More recently, they’ve also been looking into the impact that high mobile rates are having on the businesses that use 1300 numbers, 13 numbers and 1800 numbers.
