    084 and 087 numbers are typically used for banks, utility companies, customer helplines, government departments and voting in TV shows

When calling these numbers you’ll be charged an access charge and a service charge

The access charge is the amount charged by EE and the service charge is charged by the organisation you’re calling. The amount of the service charge is set by them, and should be stated anywhere the number is advertised.

The access charge and service charge will appear separately in the itemised section of your bill but may not be listed next to each other. Although they’ll be included separately in the total number of calls and duration of calls shown on your bill, the amount you’re charged will be unaffected.
