Low cost line rental makes Primus home phone packages perfect for those on a budget. Learn about the available home phone packages, phone and broadband bundles and how to switch.
Founded in 1996, Primus (www.PrimusSaver.co.uk) has made its name providing affordable broadband and low-cost call plans. It offers home phone, unlimited broadband and superfast broadband services and the cheapest line rental in the UK.
Primus home phone packages
Primus offers two home phone packages which cover both line rental and calls:
- Primus Home Phone Saver gives you free evening and weekend calls to UK 01, 02 and 03 landline numbers.
- Primus Home Phone Max gives you inclusive calls to UK 01, 02 and 03 landline numbers at any time of day.
Both packages require you to pay 12 months line rental. You can pay this on a monthly basis or all in one go at a discounted rate.
Primus broadband and home phone packages
As well as standalone home phone packages, Primus also offers broadband and home phone bundles.
The Primus Phone and Broadband and Primus Unlimited Broadband packages provide download speeds of 16Mb. The Unlimited Broadband package lets you download as much as you like each month, but other packages have usage limits - make sure you check the details before making an order.
Primus also offers fibre optic broadband, offering speeds up to 76Mb. However, this is only available in certain areas.
How do I switch to Primus Saver home phone?
Primus line rental and home phone packages are suitable for anyone with an existing copper wire phone line who isn't locked into a contract with their current home phone provider.
If you switch to Primus you will usually be able to keep you current telephone number and there won't be a break in your service. In most cases, an engineer won't even need to visit your home to complete the switch, which typically takes between seven and 10 days.
If you don't have a phone line - if you have a Virgin Media cable phone line or are moving to a newly built property for example - you will need to arrange for a BT Openreach engineer to visit you and switch you over. Primus will set this up when you make an order, but you will be required to pay an additional charge for the service.
