Q. What is the cost of calling a kiwivoip 028
A. A kiwivoip 028 number functions like a mobile phone number. It costs the same rate to call it no matter where you are in New Zealand. However, calling an 028 number from another kiwivoip phone will be free of charge - since all kiwivoip plans allow ‘Unlimited kiwivoip calling’. The cost of calling an 028 number from a non-kiwivoip phone will depend on your telephone operator - but the rate should be equivalent to another NZ mobile (or count towards your minute bundle if calling in from a mobile phone)
