What are 1890 Local Rate Services?

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

A 1890 number can be called from any location in the Republic of Ireland. The caller will pay a local call charge irrespective of distance and duration. The receiver pays a fixed fee per call (if the caller is mobile this will attract additional levies per minute).

This service is most suitable for long duration customer service calls or technical support calls as the cost of the call is more evenly shared.
