Every time you call a friend on a different mobile network, or call them
on their mobile from your landline, their network will charge your phone company a fee just for carrying the call. This is called a Mobile Termination Rate (MTR) and is currently charged at 4.7p or more a minute.
Last year MTR charges reached a staggering £750 million for landline to mobile calls alone and it's a bill that you the public have to pay. Put simply, thanks to these charges, you're paying way too much for your calls.
We think these charges are outdated and unfair as they keep prices artificially high. That stops us giving you flat rate, unlimited deals that let you use your mobile as much as you like.
That's why companies such as 3, BT and MoneySupermarket.com to do something about it. We want the industry regulator, Ofcom, to significantly lower this charge.
So please help us fight for lower mobile phone bills today. Join the 30,000 people who have already signed the petition at
