Telstra shut down Australian Premium Rate Numbers

The Australian network operator Telstra shut down Australian Premium Rate Numbers. Since the 30th of September 190 numbers cannot be set up nor then active services offered via Premium rate numbers are available anymore as all of them were disconnected on due date.

Originally, 190 numbers involved tariffs from $ 0,385 up to $ 5,50 per minute. Even though callers cannot be billed via phone bill anymore there are several alternatives as for example using a FreeCall number in combination with charging callers by credit card.

We would be glad to provide you with more detailed information on alternatives.
