I'm with TTB and would highly recommend them:
1) If you go for their 'complete' plan it includes unlimited calls to UK landlines & mobiles, however you can also use this plan on your ios/android smartphone (talk2go app) on up to 5 smartphones so you could save some serious cash on your household (or friend/relative) mobiles by downgrading the minutes purchased and possibly increasing the data allowances though talk2go calls don't use much 3G/4G data when out & about.
2) The 'complete' plan includes up to 4 static ip address free of charge. AFAIK pulse8 charge a few quid each month for 1 static ip address. Landline Voice mail, caller ID, 3 way conference calling etc all come as free of charge on TTB.
3) TTB allow you to pay your monthly bill by credit card online so you can use a CC which offers you loyalty points/rewards/cashback. Obviously this overides the DD you have setup and no DD will be taken provided you make your CC payment at least a few days before DD due date.
4) Yes the 24 month contract on TTB makes you wanna puke on the sofa & throw the cat out of the window. However you're allowed 2 free house moves in that period and more importantly, TTB will let you leave penalty free if they cannot fix any fault within 28 days, even if the fault is down to Openreach. Something to do with a Ofcom Business Broadband ruling which TTB have signed up to.
5) While I wouldn't put their customer support at the same level as AAISP, they are still very, very good and operate 7 days a week from 8am to 8pm. Many of their support staff used to work for a well known Rochdale based ISP so aren't your typical script readers. I guess Mr Tang wasn't paying them well enough
