13 and 1300 numbers and costs

The cost of making telephone calls to numbers beginning with 13 and 1300 is often different from the cost of a local call. The cost of a local call depends on:

  • the telephone company that provides your fixed telephone service
  • the local/long distance call plan that you have joined

The cost of a 13 or 1300 call from a fixed telephone service is determined by your telephone company and the contract/plan you have. Calls made from a mobile may be charged at a timed rate. Before calling from a mobile phone, check with your provider to find out the price under your plan as you may have to pay more than the cost of a local call.

Subscription service

The AER has a self-managed subscription service. The service enables targeted and more effective communication with our stakeholders. For example, if a stakeholder is interested only in retail issues, updates from the AER can be restricted to this area. Email notification will be provided whenever the AER updates information in the selected categories. Notification timing can be specified and subscription details changed at any time.
