We've already got more free calling features than any other provider, saving you £153 a year compared to BT! Why not check out our latest offers for you in My Account to save even more?

 

Is this true, if they take the line rental upfront discount out,

Plus Net are offering free internet for a year.

Yes I did not really want the TV Package but got a £10 reduction on VLR for taking it - thought I had lost anytime calls but this is now included in Broadband Plus package. VLR up front means only paying £9 odd a month. Was actually impressed with the ViewPlus Box as both the i-Can and Wii are no longer supported by BBC i-Player - plus I get all the other catch up channels. At first I thought it would not work as only on ADSL - 400 Kbps download speeds average. But it works with only occasional buffering.

Had an email from Talktalk "From 1st July 2015, we're removing 0845 and 0870 numbers from your inclusive landline calls. They will now consist of the access charge from TalkTalk and the service charge from the company you called". :rant:

 

• An access charge - TalkTalk will charge 5p per minute from your landline

• A service charge - the company you're calling decides how much this charge will be. :huh:

 

It'll be related to the new OFCOM rules on non-geographic numbers - part of the charge is set by the number owner, so it is difficult for a phone provider to include it in any package as they aren't setting the costs.

 

I suppose they could say that the access charge is included but the service charge isn't, but I'm guessing that would lead to a lot of calls to their customer support!

Can't find anything on their web site about this.

 

So now, thanks to Ofcom, I am to be charged for calling these numbers. :rant:

and they are up again!

 

simply broadband now 7.50, it was 3.50 a couple of years ago, landline rental is now 17.50! maybe cheaper than others, but the trajectory is clear.

Line rental is now £17.70. Their prices are going through the roof. I shall be looking elsewhere for a deal when my contract is up.

I noticed that, never had a problem with TT but will give them a chance before I try Plusnet, would save me £70 over the year if I switched.
