0344 number call costs

A call to an 0344 number costs the same as a call to a normal home or business landline.

All numbers that start with 03 are charged at the same rate as standard landline numbers that start with '01' or '02'.

If your phone tariff offers inclusive calls to landlines, calls to 0344 numbers will also be included on the same basis.
