0161 international calling rates

Spark's 0161 international calling service is the lower cost alternative to our standard International Direct Dial service. It gives great value on short calls overseas.

With 0161 you can make lower cost calls anywhere in the world from your home phone at any time. Please understand though that the quality of the call is lower than our standard international service.

0161 is available for Spark home phone and calling customers. It's not available to business customers on a home phone plan.

Dial 0161 before an international country code and you'll get the great value rates.

To get the 0161 rates, dial 0161 before an international country code instead of 00.

For example, if you want to call the UK, instead of dialling 00 44 you'd dial 0161 44.

If you're calling an overseas mobile phone, don't include the leading zero of the phone number. So if the person you're calling is in the UK and their mobile number is 028 1234567, you'd need to dial 0161 44 28 1234567.

See the list of international country codes

Spark customers must dial 0161 before the country code to get the lower per minute rates. If you have your calling with another provider but your access is with Spark you'll be able to use the 0161 service and will be eligible for the Spark rates as advertised.

If you're not a Spark customer you won't be eligible for Spark's advertised rates. You'll need to check the rates charged by your provider.

Voice quality, hearing difficulties and call connection issues may arise. Call charges will apply regardless of such issues. Spark's usual international capped calling offers, call quality and call connection assurances do not apply to 0161 calls.

Excludes 059, NZ Direct and calling card calls.   

Available to residential customers only. Not available to business customers, even if you have a residential home phone plan. 0161 rates apply to direct dial voice calls from your Spark home phone. Not available in combination with any other international calling offers.

0161 calls are billed on a per-minute basis. This means call durations are rounded up to the nearest full minute. Applies to standard residential plans. Terms and conditions apply. View terms and conditions
