Under the Universal Service Obligation BT's tariffs for calls from public call boxes have to be uniform throughout the UK unless Ofcom consents otherwise. BT has requested Ofcom’s consent to provide public call box services in the UK at non-uniform prices in order to carry out geographic tariff trials from time to time . The trials will allow BT to assess how consumers respond to new prices and determine what impact this may have on the use of public call boxes. Following the completion of the trials, the price will either be withdrawn and the original tariff restored or a new price will be implemented nationally.
