Even with the rising costs from BT?
I can see the reasons for doing so, but you are now paying for line rental that isnt competitive
That depend, it may still work out cheaper for some people to stay with BT, my dad for instance gets a discount, used to be a low user rebate, but called something else now as far as i know BT are the only ones to offer that.
The other problem is now that Bt have put their prices up yet again, others will follow, so the difference will be minimal again.
the main reason I changed from Bt phone service is because of their renewable contracts, I was on their evening and weekends service and that was a renewable contract. i could have just gone to the line rental only service and been on a monthly contract, which would be ok.
but looking around I found somewhere that did a evening and weekend contract for less than Bt line rental. even if i paid for Caller Id which I have not bothered with i would still be paying less than I was with Bt.
the new contract was for 12 months, it is just about come to the end now i think. Not thinking of moving mind you unless I can get line rental only for a fiver a month and that is not going to happen
