In an interview with the BBC Thursday, British Telecom's chief executive Sir Peter Bonfield, said his company had no plans to introduce free local telephone calls.

There have been rumours that BT (quote: BT.) was looking at introducing free local calls, but Bonfield was clear: "I don't think there is anything we're going to do to free local telephony calls. We're trying to balance up the positioning of our pricing so it is fair to all our customers and fair from a regulatory point of view."
