Quicksilver Internet slashes toll call prices with 054
Quicksilver Internet has slashed national and international telephone calling rates by up to 67% with its 054 code-dial service.
The 054 plan gives off-peak rates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is free to join and you only pay for the calls you make.
Using 054 does not affect existing direct dial tolls specials from Telecom or other providers, and subscribers can access the low rates from either their home or business telephone line. There is no need to change telephone numbers, and as 054 calls are made from a regular telephone, unlike some other providers, there is no need to pay for a computer compatible phone. Savings are made simply by entering 054 before dialling.
While Quicksilver's 054 rates were already very competitive, 054 customers will now make even bigger savings on their national and international toll calls. Sample prices below are per minute rates:

Code-dial tolls services give the consumer greater freedom and choice. By dialling the 054 code before calling, users can now access great rates. These type of code-dial services are already gaining great popularity overseas, and this trend is growing in NZ as consumers become more savvy about the cost benefits of using an alternate toll provider.
