Save without switching

Pay a year upfront
It's often cheaper to pay a year upfront, eg, BT's Line Rental Saver is 169.90/yr upfront, which works out a 14.16/mth (usually 16.99/mth).

Put down and redial
'Unlimited' call packages are actually free only up to the first hour or so. So hang up before the deadline and redial.

Free web to web calls
You can talk to anyone worldwide for free web to web if you both have the same free software. See Free Web Calls.


Know your peak
Check when peak and off-peak is. BT and TalkTalk are 7am to 7pm not 6am to 6pm, an hour less of cheap early evening calls.

Free mobile calls via apps
If you've got a smartphone, use free apps that let you speak over the web free. Do it over WiFi to avoid huge mobile data charges.

What the * means above

In the main body of the article two types of links are listed. Links that have a * help stay free to use, as they're 'affiliated links' which invisibly take you usually via affiliate linkage or commercial money sites, which then pay this site. It's worth noting this means the third party used may be named on any credit agreements.

The second type doesn't help and therefore doesn't have a *. You shouldn't notice any difference, the links don't impact the product at all and the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by the revenue - we aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the best product, it is still included in exactly the same way. For more details read how this site is financed.

Duplicate links of the * links above for the sake of transparency, but this version doesn't help Homephonechoices, BT Line Rental Saver, Post Office Home Phone, Localphone.
