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.
