    Time has moved on (much quicker than it used to - or so it seems at my age) and my previous advice on residential telephony has been or is now gradually being overtaken by changes in the retail market. Hence, I have now deleted links to my previous 'pearls of wisdom'. I sincerely hope they helped save some of you money.

    The 10.5p connection charge is a bit steep if you make a lot of short calls or get answerphones. I assume you only need to pay the overide connection charge (instead of in addition to) if you use one of these?

    10.50p - is a one off charge and applies to all non-inclusive landline calls.

    And this means....?

    Fortunately for us we're routing all our calls over Virgin who have just negotiated unlimited calls and broadband for £15 a month, so hopefully wont be stung by Primus connection charges...
    Stuck in a hole :(:(:( Just a step from getting out
  • O2's standard line rental is only £7.50 so you haven't been looking very hard if you think £7.99 is the cheapest.

    It means all calls other then the inclusive evening and weekend calls will incur a connection charge.;)

    I don't use the landline to make calls at all, so for just line rental o2 are the cheapest.
