    Our friends who run,,, telediscount, telesavers, telestunt and goodness knows what else have now also launched for landlines. A £1.50 top-up calls buys credit you can use via a 0808 freephone number. With a 5p connection fee it does not seem favourable except where it offers 0p/min destinations not available with any of the other services (I don't think 1899 offers as many as this but I could be wrong). I'm an NTL user and allows me to call all of the below places just for the connection fee as the 0808 number can be called from cable lines too.

    International calls only 0 pence!
    Bangladesh 0 p/Min
    Bulgaria 0 p/Min
    Germany 0 p/Min
    Poland 0 p/Min
    South-Africa 0 p/Min
    USA 0 p/Min
    Zimbabwe 0 p/Min
    Connection fee 5p.

    In most other cases, 18866 (2p connection) 1899 (3p connection) or 18185 (4p connection) work out better.
