im currently looking at upgrading to virgin zoom (350mbps) and have realised how much im paying for my landline in the process

 

Does anyone have any experience of using voip providers, ive found one, http://www.voipfone.co.uk/ that seems to be offering the service for £2 per month, a saving of about £200 over a year.  The comparison sites appear to be biased towards the existing pstn suppliers and i don't trust their opinions....

I looked into going with one of the VOIP providers recently but in the end I just stuck with getting a Skype number. It's a bit more expensive, but it's easier to use Skype than mess around with other VOIP apps IMO. The call charges are pretty similar to the other VOIP providers. The tech support is pretty good and the reliability has been pretty much 100% for me so far. I've used over 900 minutes so far in June for work calls to our 0800 number, which is free. I managed to get a really good memorable 020 (London) number with Skype.

 

It's annoying that you can't get rid of the line rental when you have non-Virgin fiber broadband. I would dump my home phone immediately if I could, saving £17.50 per month.

 

If you want to keep your landline handset if you do go the VOIP route, these things are apparently very good: https://www.amazon.c...=A188XU4GUET4B5

it looks like i can port over my existing number to voip which would be good too.  I guess the fact you are using skype with no issues as your main contact line tells me all i need to know, and my only issues are going to be if the voip provider has crappy servers for handling calls. Thanks Kans, mucho appreciated
