its swings and roundabouts though.... if you have you're broadband with PN (whatever market price your on) it works out cheaper overall with PN than BT (albeit only by a couple of quid if your on market 1)

Take a look HERE for BT special offer which might be of interest to you.
In addition, you might get caller display free as part of the privacy at home package - conditions are that you make two chargeable calls per month.
Should you go for this, be prepared for a bit of a wrangle on the telephone as they sometimes don't know about it. Ask for the special offers department (they do or did have one).

Hi poppy, I didn't realise they had extended the offer to June this year. It also seems from recent correspondence from BT that the £1 off continues if you renew for a further 12 months.

Superusers are not staff, but they do have a direct line of communication into the business in order to raise issues, concerns and feedback from the community.

Yes, it does roll over - I have recently had a letter to say that my contract is at an end and they will renew it on the same terms unless I cancel.
With £2 per month discount, paper-free billing discount and free caller display the cost this month is less than £16 for Anytime so won't be canceling.

I believe the conditions are that you make calls not that they are chargeable. What if you are on a fully inclusive package, does BT expect you to make calls to mobiles just to keep caller display free?

Re: So..how much cheaper?

No, they are definitely chargeable calls that are required. I was advised by the lady from BT to dial a four digit number before the usual number a couple of times a month to make a chargeable call.
I can't locate the number just now and I haven't used it as I do tend to make the odd short mobile call so that sorts things out.

Re: So..how much cheaper?

You are not thinking of the 1280 number? This number is used if you are using another provider to route the call through BT. The conditions are that you make calls through BT and there is no minimum charge so the cost can be 0p.

12. Do I have to commit to a minimum call spend with BT?

No, there is a minimum charge per call depending on what BT option you are on.

Re: So..how much cheaper?

Many thanks Sean...I have only just picked this up...but I have actually spoken to your sales people...unfortunately they couldnt come up with a suitable package...massive shame for me as I dont want to leave...but talktalk are around 11-12 quid cheaper per month ...so its time to move on...

Good luck with TalkTalk - I hope that everything goes smoothly.
Have had bad experiences with the company, as have many others.
As 18 months is a long time to be stuck with a company, before jumping ship you might
want to read THIS where in the thread about Plusnet's award Mick Finlay reports that he is glad to be back.

Re: So..how much cheaper?

Sadly I think you may be right poppy...but £150 is £150 quid at the end of the day...Im not keen on the company..never have been and im aware of their postion in many ISP rankings..but its quite a saving.
18 months is indeed a long time...but a lot of people dont realise the full extent of the word contract..its a two way thing..and if they fail to deliver then they will be seen to breaking their side of it...I will be watching beleive me..plusnets service has been fualtless as far as im concerned...Im not expecting  the same from taltalk...so I wont be too let down if I dont get it..but if they give me the runaround then I will be off...contract or no contract.
