Home Phone Calling Rates

If you dial 059 or 0161 to access Spark's network before making a call from your Vodafone home phone you'll be charged at Spark's retail rates. 018 and 0900 are also not included in your talk plan and will be charged at the rates below in addition to your monthly talk plan. If you're calling an overseas mobile (unless a special mobile rate is listed) it will cost the same as the normal country rate.

Prices below include GST.
