How are my home phone minutes added up?
If you are signed up to one of our Telephone minute packs, you will see the details of calls itemised in the "Your Usage Last month in Detail" section of your bill.
The duration of all per minute call types will be rounded up to the next whole minute, Whilst you won't see the rounding duration in your usage or summary, this is incorporated into the "Total Usage last month" amount.
For example if you make 10 calls @ 30 seconds each, this will be counted as 10 minutes as each call will be rounded up to 1 minute each.
