Currently with Xilo Via Tiscali network,


[link to this post]
 
Ive got BT as my phone provider and with xilo 75gb pro for internet.
they have been brilliant internet wise but BT is a major issue now.

ive been smacked with a whopper of a phone bill and the extra charges added on (because I pay with paper) and the 0870 numbers have just gone nuts.

Do you think if I bundle together I could expect about the same type of broadband im currently getting?/the broadband service is one of the best ive had since Ukonline but at this rate I wont be able to afford the phone If I dont do something about it.

We can do a bundled service, including phone rental but you'll still have calls to pay for.

Do you have a mobile you can make any inclusive calls through?

I take it you don't have a calling plan with bt then, there are a few others around as well as bt that give you inclusive calls to 0845 & 0870 numbers

I checked the BT website im going to phone them tomorrow.
they have charged me 51.50 for Advanced line rental.
Was on Evening and weekend calling plan but was a daft choice as most of the calls I make to london (are daytime for the hospitals there).

the 0870 numbers really came to the front this time because of the paypal problem I had was living on those numbers to lloyds TSB.I didnt realise they could mount up so fast.

Hi,
I have a similar problem to you with BT line rental - but unfortunately l live in an area that doesn't have LLU. I use an IP telephone that pugs into my router - much cheaper than using BT for calls. It's through Draytel.org and is a prepay thing. I rarely have to top it up(though that's probably because I don't make so many calls smile. But BT still caught me out as I hadn't made 6 charged calls a quarter frown I'd really like to ditch BT!
Xilo are the best ISP I've used.

regards
Allan

So, for £4.70 pm with BT you can have all your up to 1 hour geog. & 0845/0870 calls free Anytime.

You should be paying £41.70 for quarterly line rental in advance.

Which mobile network?

If Vodafone, have a look at their "Sure Signal". Will use the broadband and will transmit a mobile signal in your house.

I have one as I live in a poor coverage area and the Sure Signal gives great coverage in the house (for up to 5 handsets).

That has changed since I bought mine... then again, they did change name from Vodafone Access Gateway (and lowered the price from £160 to £50).

Not that it really affects me as only have 2 on our box, but good to know.
