Makes me feel glad that I'm paying line rental and call costs to CIX and not BT Retail :).

I was apprehensive about changing line rental/call charges to another provider, but not getting stung for several pounds for a daytime 0845 call to pay a gas bill or similar sorted that.

Chenks! Where did you get that idea from?  ;)

I don't think we are large users @20 calls/month of which each averages 19 chargeable minutes. We're on an any time package, and even with our low use  we benefit.
