Do you mean web hosting sites?

Image hosting sites, probably the easiest is https://postimages.org/ as you don't even require an account.

My apologies, looks like I was going "star blind" and miscounted the number of stars against the unlimited package.

I spent 1 hour and 20 minutes on the phone last night.

The first 20 minutes to get through to BT where I spent the next 10 minutes negotiating a new price - exactly the same package as I have at the moment, but less than half the price (~£35). So far so good. The line was clear and there were informative messages every 5 minutes or so.

Then the BT man put me through to PlusNet.

Absolute agony. 30 minutes of listening to distorted, broken up piped music. Eventually I got through. The same distortion and I had had incredible difficulty hearing what he said and vice-versa.

He made a note of the problems I had had, cancelled the three debits to my credit account and the direct debit.

I await to see what actually happens.

I've been using www.postimages.org for a couple of years and have never had a problem, the site is working properly as i type this. (see below)

" which meant I paid £4.50 for free weekend and evening calls "

I thought the free weekend and evening calls were free?

Was Eclipse Home Option 1, VM 2Mb & O2 Standard
