    Morning all

    We are about to ‘be out of contract’ with BT for our broadband & phone lines, so hunting around for a far better deal, service & customer care than BT. Any advice welcome…

    We avg pay around £80pcm, give or take…we have a voip/cloud phone system through BT so customers can access us through our old number, however I don’t feel this is required any longer & simply stick with our current number, which most seem to be using now…

    Thank you

    Broadband via either Plusnet, or TalkTalk for us, then use VoipFone for our VOIP phones. :thumbsup:

    do they not simply take on your cloud / voip No’s, or is that still with BT?

    We have a dedicated No given to us by BT when we went onto cloud, need this No. as it’s what we use now. a number of people still use the old number which has been on divert for almost 2yrs now – though they wouldn’t know, maybe we’d have to use some kind of "please redial using…" temp message instead of the divert, to get people weaned off it over a number of months, would need to look into that..

    You can ‘port’ your number to VOIPfone from BT.

    We have 3 numbers on VOIP, 4 extensions in the unit, (1 on each desk, 1 in production, 1 installation) and can transfer calls between them all. Took my desk phone home on Friday and worked from home, transferring calls from home to my dad at work 😆

    We’re not even using fibre broadband and it works well. You can set it up so if the internet does go down it automatically diverts to the mobile, or alternative number. :thumbsup:

    Give them a call, they’re really helpful.

    Clear business and we are £45 a month for the two. Transferred our number when moving unit.
    Internet could be faster some days being honest, but I think that’s more due to our location, 3 computers running off it and 4 phones.

    Ive tried a them all, we now use http://www.123telecom.co.uk Gareth, they took my ported numbers, BT Numbers, 3 different company numbers (different Areas) and set them all to ring in my office, and at my home if not in the office, there very good and very competitive.
