Public Call Boxes - Consent for non-uniform charging for geographic tariffing trials | Ofcom

Public Call Boxes - Consent for non-uniform charging for geographic tariffing trials | Ofcom

Ofcom are allowing BT to conduct trials of non-uniform pricing tariffs from BT call boxes (outside of Hull). There will be periodic trials over the next 3 years (until 2010).

BT have a universal service obligation (USO) to provide call boxes, though many of these are unprofitable. This would allow BT to charge more for calls to distant geographic locations (in the UK).

BT would prefer not to run remote call boxes at all and this is a comprimise from Ofcom.
