Cablecom not charging me for international calls

I've been with Cablecom since December for telephone, interweb and cable. My bills are itemised so it lists all numbers dialled in the invoice period...except any calls we've made to the UK

As good as this seems I can't help feeling that they are going to realise soon and send me a fat backdated bill, ouch!

Has anybody experienced this before and what did you do?

No mistake..

With cablecom, calls to International landlines (well about.. 30 countries) are free!

Enjoy!

Re: Cablecom not charging me for international calls

I've just checked cablecom's website and can't see any plans giving free international calls.

Can you find me a link? I don't currently have a landline but if I can call all my family and friends in the UK for nowt then I might get one.

Re: Cablecom not charging me for international calls

The only option i know is you have to pay per country you want 3sfr addup, so you can phone to the country(for example the uk) for 5 Rp per Minute.
But this option does not exist anymore, you can choose only between light, basic, freecall, global and freecall&global.
From light to freecall calls to foreign country cost min.10 Rp, from global to
freecall&global you have to pay min. 6 Rp.

Re: Cablecom not charging me for international calls

Yeah actually I've just looked at the website and for my phone plan (light) it says it's 0.10 chuffs per minute, which although is quite cheap it still isn't the free service I'm getting at the moment!

Seems more and more like it's a mistake on their part.

Re: Cablecom not charging me for international calls

*Update*

So Cablecom very kindly lumped all of my international call charges from December to April into my May bill. Nice

Moral of this story is don't expect to get anything for free. You won't.

Don't ya just love cablecon

I was in the service point in ZH asking about the upgrade to HD, faster internet and phone (as the line rental would be free) The girl at the service point actually recomended me NOT to take the freecall & global option with them, just do the freecall, and to check these folk out: http://www.helvatel.ch/index2.php for international calls.

That's good to know, thanks. My colleague was only saying today that i should try using another service for international calls.

...and if Cablecom themselves recommend it!

(tbh I have had a good service with Cablecom up to that point)
