People who have a BT Anytime landline phone subscription will now be able to call 0845 and 0898 numbers for free.

Many UK companies including banks and utility firms use 0845 and 0870 numbers for their call centres.

BT said people have often complained that their calling packages did not include the 0870 and 0845 numbers which are frequently used by banks, insurance companies and even doctor's surgeries.
