BT cuts cost of calling pagers

THE COST of calling one of the estimated two million pagers in Britain is set to fall sharply after British Telecom yesterday agreed to cut its charges following an investigation by Oftel, the telecoms watchdog.

BT has cut the cost of calling the devices by up to 25 per cent. At the moment, calling a pager from a BT phone can cost up to 55p per minute.

David Edmonds, the director-general of Oftel, said it was clear that BT was charging to much for the calls.
