I have just signed up for a cable landline phone with VM as it was almost free (+44p/month for landline). But phone calls via the VM landline are very expensive. First Telecom provides you with an automatic dailler that sits between your phone and the phone socket. The calls go through first telecom who are significantly cheaper.
The advantages are: you get an automatic dialler so no 0800 numbers to rememeber to dial before.
If anyone know of another telco that gives an automatic dialler and cheaper calls, please let us know.
Also if anyone is using first telecom at the minute, please post your views on the company.
