Has any one used 059 services from Telecom? How is the quality?

059 Details.
If you have Telecom for your home line rental but your toll calls are with another company, you can access the Telecom network to make calls using the prefix "059".

0161 prefix is probably what you were thinking of.

http://www.telecom.co.nz/content/0,3900,101974-1462,00.html

I use it all the time for OZ and quality is excellent and price is cheap (calling mobile in oz is cheaper than ringing mobiles in nz)
059 is just access if using other provider for tolls.

Sense of humour? Here? Never. (Isn't that image overused everywhere?)

059 is used if you have your toll calling with another company ie. Telstra. When you use 059 it will use telecoms toll system instead.

If you were referring to VOIP, I'd probably say 0161 would be closer to what you want. Though the calls don't always go through....

What timing! Didn't intend to repeat. Or double post.

059 is the prefix used if a customer who has their homeline but not their Direct Dial tolls (NCA) calling with Telecom if they want their toll calls billed/routed through Telecom instead of the chosen carrier (EG clear/slingshot)

0161 "valueChat" is a service which charges cheaper per minute rates instead of capping off-peak/anytime calls and higher per minute rates.

0161 uses cheaper whoesalers to bring you cheaper calls, These cheaper wholesalers may offer dubious quality calls. But you pay less!
