Calling Northern Ireland landlines

Started ‎06-06-2017 by

When calling Northern Ireland landlines you can use the normal UK +44 prefix or you can use the 048 prefix described here:

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telephone_numbers_in_the_Republic_of_Ireland#Calls_to_Northern_Ireland

 

A call to NI using +44 is charged as an international call at 50c per minute.

Calls to NI using 048 are covered by your membership or add-on bundled landline calls allowance.

 

So if you're calling an NI landline it makes sense to use 048 rather than +44.

 

Refer to the wikipedia link above for instructions on how to use the 048 prefix (basically you replace the 028 prefix in an NI landline with 048).
