Looking for an inexpensive telephone service. At Simple Telecoms we understand that there is a huge number of seniors and pensioners out there that don’t need all the bells and whistles and broadband services that other phone companies tie you in to.

We offer a personal, efficient and friendly phone only service that's tailor made to your individual needs.

 NO connection fees - Saving 100% against BT, TalkTalk, Virgin and Plusnet

Unlike BT, TalkTalk, Sky, Virgin, Plusnet and the Post Office we DO NOT charge any call connection or setup fees on ANY of our chargeable calls, with the exception of our Super Saver line rental service, and calls that attract connection charges (eg Directory Enquiries, 084,087 no's) saving you a massive 100% on every changeable call that you make.

TalkTalk, EE, Vodafone and some Post Office and Sky lines use LLU/MPF providers, who run their own network and deliver entirely their own services to end users (i.e. they are not simply reselling BT Wholesale service). We have only listed the main operators who fulfil this criteria as there are far too many to list. To transfer TalkTalk, Post Office, Vodafone, SSE and some Sky lines will require us to send a BT engineer to the local exchange to move the line back to the main BT network, at a cost of £47.50. *Virgin transfer POA (price on application) transfer/install please contact us for more information on transferring a Virgin line. ** UK mobile networks O2, Orange, T-Mobile, Vodafone, H3, (FM1, FM2, FM4,FM5 and FM6) at peak time, at 6ppm.
