Billing Options

Bill type Cost
Paper billing You will receive your bills in the post. Having your bills sent by post will incur a £1 administration charge for each bill issued. £3.00 per month
Online billing You will manage your account online and receive your bills via e-mail Free
Itemised billing Free

Why do billing options matter?

Billing options let you choose how your bill is presented. An itemised bill shows the cost of individual calls you've made. Paper bills by post can sometimes cost extra, so online billing may save you money.

What are landline features?

Landline features are optional extras usually costing a few pounds each per month. They let you do more with your phone than make and receive calls. For example, you might want to block certain types of number, or be able to have a three-way chat.

Other Details

Usage Details Truly Unlimited

"Truly unlimited" broadband is perfect for heavy downloaders, student households or families sharing their connection because it does not apply either a fair usage policy or traffic management. This lets you download as much as you want, whenever you want, with your broadband speed acting as the only restricting factor. Some packages offer "unlimited broadband" without a fair usage policy but with traffic management to make sure that very heavy downloaders do not affect your connection at peak times.

Excess Usage & Traffic Management

Truly unlimited broadband does not apply either a fair usage policy or traffic management, allowing you to download as much as you want, whenever you want, with your broadband speed acting as the only restricting factor.
