930003Bonn/Cologne (dpa/tmn) – Fixed network customers of Telekom can continue to use so-called call-by-call services to save on calls from one call to the next.

The same applies to the possibility of making permanent calls via another provider (preselection).92316710

Call-by-call works like this: The actual number is the Preselection of the selected, cheaper provider. The conversation then runs through this provider, but the fees are collected via the Telekom bill. Call-by-call tariffs can be found on various comparison portals on the Internet.
