The 087 VOIP call quality to their so-called help desk is atrocious. Can they not afford a good old fashioned 0800 Telkom number? ;-)
087 numbers are not premium rated numbers. They are assigned to various companies offering voip services. I have an 087 number as well as an 021 number from a voip provider. Calls to these numbers are charged at standard rates and if you have free minutes on your cellphone, then the calls should be free. If your cellular provider is not using your free minutes when connecting your call to an 087 number, you should contact them to find out why.
From Telkoms website:
Calls from Telkom to WBS(iBurst) number range 087 720/722 are charged at R0.01786 per second during normal time and R0.01102 per second during callmore time with a minimum charge of R0.65.
Please show me where you were charged R2/min. I cannot understand the amount of misconception there is with regard to 087 numbers.
087 numbers are not automatically premium rated calls
