IDNet launch home phone service

IDNet are the latest ISP to launch home telephone and broadband bundles with line rental from just £10 per month when included with a broadband package. The new services will allow a single bill to be sent out to customers that will cover both their broadband and telephone services.

IDNet have three options available, with a choice of 'Line Only' including only the line rental, Unlimited Evening, and Unlimited Evening & Weekend calls costing £10.99, £11.99 and £13.99 respectively. They can be purchased on their own or bundled with a broadband product and 'Line Only' is reduced to just £10 oer month when bundled. You can transfer your line from your existing provider for free, and new installs are charged at £110.

IDNet say there are no call setup charges which is different to most large telecom providers and per-second billing which will help reduce the cost to customers. They also have a call comparison wizard to help users work out how much they could save by switching.


I rather to have anytime unlimited (local and nationwide) like eg: 24 hours/7 days a week/ 365 days a year.

broadband in particular ipstream broadband has seems to barely have any profit now as all the isps have been fighting a unsustainable price war which has led to consumers been very price sensitive so the only way to make money now is to branch out to voice services.
