there is no way that they're making money on free calls [except for 1p connection] in UK... + some of their int. call rates are good for consumers but are also silly
+ their other companies [under same Swiss ownership] provide similarly nutty low rates.... even with advent of VOIP or VOB theres NO WAY they can make money.
so question is: how the hell do they survive...?
I really think OfCom should look into them....
As much a we all enjoy low/non-existent pricing, in a market-led economy it just doesn't bode well for any future R&D etc
I FEEL GUILTY !,
My poor old mobile with it's 120 cross network minutes are gathering as we speak, in fact I have several hours heaped up.
Do you have to leave BT to join TalkTalk? Do 18866 and 1899 still work on TalkTalk?
My BT line rental is paid for by work (only if I stay with BT) so would I have to forfeit this if I joined TalkTalk?
No. In fact, you can't (TalkTalk is a Carrier PreSelect [CPS] service for which you need a landline).Talk2 is their promotional offer this month.
So, you keep your BT landline - but make sure you're on BT Together Option 1 - and pay BT only the line rental (£10.50 per month if you pay by DD or £11.50 if you pay any other way).
Yes, 1899 and 18866 work with TalkTalk (as does 1280 to hop back onto BT for those 0845 and 0870 calls if you really have to make then).
It was due to end on 17 December
