A local call at 2d for 6 minutes is probably equivalent to 2p per minute in 2017 and
a c rate call at 2d for 10 seconds equates to about 80p. But more interesting is the
total flattening of the tariff bands: from six bands (local plus five trunk) for
operator-connected calls we now have the same rates irrespective of distance.
BT rates in 2017 are 21p set-up plus 12p per minute.
The printed codes for Bletchingly and Godstone are 0093 87 and 0093 84 respectively
(0OX3 for Oxted.)
