Premium rate numbers are telephone numbers used to offer value-added services to subscribers at a premium charge, for example, those numbers used for TV or Radio competitions, weather forecast services, 24hr veterinary service etc...

Calls or SMS to premium rate numbers, are charged at a higher rate than calls or SMS towards mobile or fixed numbers. Whilst in the case of SMS premium rate numbers, a one-time premium charge is incurred for the event, charges for calls to premium rate numbers consists of the standard fixed call charge and an additional service charge. In order for the subscriber to be able to take a conscious decision whether to call or text to such a premium rate number, all references to any premium rate number must be clearly accompanied by all the costs which the subscriber will incur.
