TIP 1

Pay by Direct Debit. Most providers charge a fee if you DON’T pay by direct debit so check this out on your bill, it may be worth setting one up.

TIP 2

Peak and Off-Peak. Get to know when your peak and off peak times are, many providers have changed these recently, and it’s not been in the consumer’s favour!

TIP 3

Voicemail and Caller ID. If you have line rental with voicemail or caller ID, and think these are free, check your bill. Some providers, unless you make two chargeable or inclusive calls per month, will charge you for these services.

TIP 4

Know your NGN’s. Non Geographic Numbers or NGN’s are telephone numbers not assigned to a geographic location. They also come with a raft of different charges, so before dialling, make sure you know the rate per minute, and check to see if there is an alternative lower rate number by using a website like http://www.saynoto0870.com/
