how much do premium rate services cost and
where does the money go?

Premium rate services currently vary in cost from 10 pence to £1.50 per minute/call/text.

Please note that your phone company (landline, cable or mobile) may also add a surcharge in addition to the advertised rate. Any surcharge will vary depending on your telephone company.

You should check the cost of calling or texting premium rate services from your phone with your own telephone company.

Many services on mobile phones (for example, football goal alert text messages or ringtone downloads) will be charged at a fixed rate per call/text (for example, 50 pence per text message or £1.00 per download).

The money paid by users for services is shared between the telephone company carrying the service and the organisation providing the content.
