Mobiles FINALLY get free 1800 & fixed charge 1300 calls

Do you have a landline? According to the Australian Communications & Media Authority (ACMA), one in seven households don't have one and this rising number has caused the regulator to force reform in the way we are billed by mobile operators. 

Currently if you use a mobile phone to call a 13 or 1300 number, you are charged for how long you are on the call, or on hold. The proposal will make all of these calls charged at a fixed price like calls from a home line. 1800 numbers which are supposed to be free will also be free on your mobile phones!

  1. Awesome news, especially as you are generally on hold while using those type of numbers.
