What are 1850 Shared Rate Services?

Shared Rate numbers are designed to enhance customer calling by splitting the cost of the call.

With an 1850 Shared Rate Number the caller will be charged a fixed fee per call. The receiver of the call will pay the balance. This means the receiver will initially get an amount of free seconds and will subsequently pay for the call on a per minute basis. A 1850 number can be called from any location in the Republic of Ireland.

This service is ideal for generating inbound calls without having to pay the full cost of the call.
