Landlines remain an essential service for households and businesses across the UK. Despite facing increasing competition from the mobile and broadband phone markets, the landline’s cost, reliability and ease-of-use means there is still some distance to go if it is to be removed as the leading method of telephone communications in the UK.
Increased competition and deregulation in the landline market over the past two decades has also lead to a greatly improved situation for customers. Numerous deals and packages are available, covering both combined services from other areas and products that suit certain call habits. Examples include:
- Landline phone service combined with broadband, digital TV, satellite TV or mobile phones.
- Reduced or free call charges for local, national or international phone calls.
- Free voice mail for call answering and message storing.
- Special services for businesses, and reduced call packages for certain numbers or regions
With many different companies now involved in landline provision, it makes sense to shop around for the best deal.
