To switch provider or not?


[link to this post]
 
At the moment I am with EE, I pay them £25 per month which gets me unlimited downloads, 7mbps and free evening and weekend calls and includes the BT line rental. I have been with them 3 years now, not had any major issues apart from speeds can be slow in the evenings, Every time my contract is up I end up renewing as I can't find anything cheaper or better.

I live in an area with no LLU at the exchange so line rental is going to always have to be paid to be. Is there anything on par or better than EE?

Plusnet?

Same BTw platform, far superior CS and cheaper. Unlimited Broadband and W/E calls : £19.50 for 9m incl. line rental then £24.50. +£5 for Anytime Calls.

Why do you keep renewing? Don't you just let contract run on with 1m notice?

Hang in tho'! What exchange? PN prices depend on classification of exchange.

Neither! W/E stands for Weekend.

PN recently changed the inclusive calls from W/E & Eve to W/E.

Ah, OK! It was worth a shot.

But you are in their dearer, Market 1, area so it's £3.50 dearer in the 1st 9m and £7 dearer thereafter than the prices I quoted.

They only in last few days stopped doing inclusive Eve & W/E Calls.

I think you have a typo there?

It doesn't show on the website, but Evening and Weekend Calls on Plusnet is still available, but only appears during the signup process. £1.50pm.

There is also a Line rental Saver option. If you way the year up front it is £131.88. That doesn't include the normal Weekend calls, but the E & W at £1.50 is still available. A slightly confusing Table 15 on this page.

No, weekend calls to mobiles, which isn't quite what you said.

Wake up please. I should know as my line IS with the Post Office and calls to mobiles and 40 countries are included at weekends., I suggest you read your link carefully,
