Coming to Cardiff

How much will telephone calls cost?

Call charges vary depending on what system you use, what time of day you are calling and where you are calling.

For example the cheapest call would be from a private residential telephone on weekdays before 08.00 or after 18.00 or anytime at the weekend, to a friend a few streets away.

The most expensive call would be calling someone overseas from a mobile phone during the daytime.

For more information about buying a phone and costs of calls see the UK Student Life website.


A cheap way of talking to friends and family overseas is by connecting your computer to the internet and using Skype. It allows you to call, video call or instant message someone else who has Skype for free.
