@MI5

Is it still able to get local address on a 3G-only device?

Re: IP address always in London

A long time ago o2 did have local and national rates the 4 local telephone number area codes would be at local rate others at highe rate .

 

The phones used to display this on the handset via cell broadcast chanel 200 but this died a long time ago. As all calls are now at the same rate.

Re: IP address always in London

Mines local now too so must have changed since 4g was launched.

Re: IP address always in London
