Just noticed that for a period between 25th december & 7th january, all local calls were being categorised as national calls.
They were all free anyway so it doesn't really matter.

Yes just checked and the same number called on 22nd December and 19th January classed as "Local" was "National" on 28th December and 7th January.
As you say it doesn't really matter as even Sky Talk Weekend customers pay the same rate for National and Local chargeable calls.
Wondered if any other service providers were effected but BT's bills are arranged slightly different giving actual destination exchange instead of call type for geographic calls.

Aha so not just me then.
I was starting to wonder if it was related to this issue i noticed 2 weeks later.

Is it because many of us have to use our national exchange code even on local numbers?

Local numbers have been withdrawn from some areas where capacity was becoming exhausted. This provides additional numbers as previously local numbers could not start with zero, one or double nine.
Where local numbers are allowed prefixing a number with the national dialling code shouldn't make any difference to the call category. Geographical calls are billed as local when the called party is connected to an exchange in the same charging area or one adjacent to that of the caller.
As far as I am aware all telephone service providers now charge local and national calls at the same rate.
