Examining the Choice of Homephone Lines Available
If you are moving to a new house or apartment and would like to get a landline installed, it is recommended that you use a price comparison service such as Homephone Choices to research the companies that provide landline services in your area and how much the cost of installation may be. BT, Virgin Media and TalkTalk are the three largest providers of landline services in the UK, although if you are planning on signing up to a fixed-line broadband service as well, you do not have to restrict yourself to packages that these three providers offer, although smaller internet service providers do utilise the phone line installed by one of the larger companies in order to connect you to their services.
To have a phone line installed by BT it can cost £130. If you move into your new home and discover that it already has a BT phone line installed, you should have to incur the installation fee. Both BT and Virgin Media offer discounted installation costs if you agree to sign up to one of their bundle packages that includes homephone and broadband services. For example, BT will drop the cost of installing the line to just £30 if you agree to receive line rental, calls and broadband from the company, while Virgin Media will install the line for free if you sign up to one of its broadband packages as well.
Monthly line rental can cost anything from £12 to £18, depending on how you pay it. Both BT and Virgin Media offer discounts for customers that are willing to pay via direct debit. Taking up online billing is another way to cut your bills down, as some providers charge a little extra to send you paper bills.
If you find that you are going over your monthly call allowance on your mobile phone, the right landline call package could help you avoid doing so in the future. On price comparison sites you can find out which package would suit you best; if you spend a lot of time on the phone in the evening, a discounted or free evening call plan could be the one for you. If you work nights and spend most of your time on the phone during the day, it is possible to find a package tailored toward your usage as well. Most providers even have deals in place that offer discounted international calls, if you have family abroad that you want to stay in touch with.
By considering your needs before you commit to anything, you are in a better position to sign up to a deal you will benefit from. With a host of fantastic deals out there, you are sure to find a package that is tailor-made to your requirements.
