    Landline for elderly 13th Jan 19 at 3:19 PM
    Hello everyone, can you recommend a landline provider for my elderly relative. Landline only, uses approx 60/80 mins a month generally in the evening. She is presently with the Post office and is paying circa 27 - 32 a month . Tried convincing her to use a mobile but she wont!

    Other than broadband I haven't used my own landline for several years so don't have a 'feel' for charges

    Many thanks in anticipation

    They should have received a notification from the Post Office giving them the opportunity to take up the same offer as above

    or

    BT home phone saver for 21.99 including calls. http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/58585/~/learn-about-home-phone-saver-2020

    or

    BT basic, if on some benefits, for 5.10 including 1.50 of calls and a fair use cap of 10 on paid for calls https://btplc.com/inclusion/ProductsAndServices/BTBasic/Whatdoyouget/index.htm .
