Tough mobile news - Call costs to dual sim mobile phones from landlines reduced
A lot of people have mobile phones in this day and age, and research last year showed that an increasing number of households rely on a mobile rather than a land line to communicate with friends and family.
With this in mind it may please many people to know that the cost of phoning a mobile handset from a landline is apparently going to reduce by 85% by April 2015.
This is good news for owners of dual sim mobile phones, since they will no longer have to worry about the costs being suffered by family and friends connected though to them by the sim they have set aside for that purpose.
The drop in prices for landline to mobile calls may also mean that tough mobile phones could become a piece of important work safety kit, provided as readily by construction companies to their employees as hard hats are so that they can keep in contact with them from an office landline, without paying expensive bills, even if the worker is in the middle of a field.
So, what does an 85% drop in phone call costs translate into as money, you may ask? Well, according to the Competition Appeals Tribunal is means that, on average, prices will fall from 4.18p per minute, to 0.65p per minute in the next three years. Not bad at all.
However, that does unfortunately mean that if you own a dual sim mobile phone, an angry boss or angry spouse can phone you for a greater length of time without cost concerns cutting the call blissfully short.
