Plustalk Business - this cannot be serious!


Plustalk Business - this cannot be serious!

Just been looking at Plustalk for my business connection, maybe routing outgoing calls to landlines that way.

But I see that not only is the package a whopping £19-99/month - which is more than our normal spend on landline calls via Chess Telecom, but the inclusive minutes can only be used outside normal business hours!

Clearly this is not a serious business offering. Can I sign up to a residential package? We would easily be inside the cap on minutes, and could see some real savings.

Plustalk Business - this cannot be serious!

I've just had a look at the £19.99/month PlusTalk Business Package and it states "50 hrs of anytime mins included". Where did you get that they where out of hours only?

By clicking the "View full product details" link. At the bottom of that page was a single asterisk that said "6pm -8am Mon- Fri and all weekend".

Viewing the page again just now it appears to have changed, as it no longer says that. Or maybe a portal problem - when I looked last night I had been viewing the residential packages earlier. Or perhaps my mistake, and it certainly says "anytime" now.

But the current package is still too expensive - I have to buy more minutes than I need, 0845 is 150% more expensive than BT, and I currently get calls to mobiles at about 10p/min from my PSTN provider, which is 50% less than Plustalk.

Though I'm about to set up Asterisk as a PBX, I think I'll wait until rates come down to something worthwhile before routing outgoing through IP. I guess the real savings will come when we can call to other IP subscribers. Most of our calls are to other businesses, and I've yet to see a business advertising a VOIP number.
