“One.Tel saved the day”

published 06/03/2005

ProVery Cheap calls if you choose the right package.

ConsNone that I have come across.

Hi....I was looking avidly for a landline service that would help me out as I needed to make calls to the USA. I needed something that wouldnt be expensive and that I didnt need to use any coded numbers either. So ease of use was a factor for me. I had checked out several of them and found that...

“Let me OneTel you about it”

published 24/10/2001

ProVery cheap international phone rates

ConsThere are none

I make a lot of long distance, international phone calls. I mean a lot. I call the states several times a week. I also don't talk for just a short time, I talk like it is a free local call. Lots of catching up to do with family and friends you know. I even still call my favourite local shops in...

ConsNone

OneTel is a great company that gives you very good rates on national and international calls made from the UK and also the option of an Internet connection that costs no more then one penny per minute at ALL times. This is very good value for those that want to surf at odd times during the day...

ConsTook 3 Months, Poor Service

I'm back after a three month gap! Why have I been away you ask? Well because I changed my internet from Tiscali to OneTel. I closed my account with Tiscali early August because of connection problems. I signed up with Onetel for 512kb/s at £23.99 a month. It seemed a good deal at the time...

“Get Ready...3..2..One.Tel”

published 15/08/2001

ProYou get to keep more of your own money!

ConsPlease tell me.

If there is still anyoneout there using B.T`s exhorbitant rates to ring around the world I suggest that they either have their head examined OR sign up asap to "onetel". We`ve been using them for over four years since they started and it must have saved us thousands of pounds in calls to various...

ProFree internet access - small monthly charge

ConsHaven't come across any yet

I had been a customer of the OneTel discounted phone service for over a year in Ruislip, before moving down to Sussex two months ago. I'd always found their voice service so much cheaper, and liked the idea of "soft" copies of my monthly bills. After moving down to West Sussex, I enquired if I...

'How would like bill thank you'- translated into what we know as English, means 'how would you like to pay for your bill?' 'Thank You' means 'please.' and 'How may I please you' is not a chat up line of the local imported hooker, but actually translates to 'can I help you?' Yep, its the English...

I decided to sign-up with OneTel for two reasons. The first and foremost one was to get internet access for 1p per minute which they where offering at the time and the second was to be able call a couple of friends who were living abroad at the time. The service I received at the time was less...

ProExcellent value and service, no credit card needed

ConsNot available in all areas

Some time ago I was in a sorry state of affairs trying to balance my internet addiction against huge phone bills, not an easy task. So why not just sign up for an unmetered access account with say, BT or AOL etc you may ask? Well if, like me, you are not in possession of a bank account for...

The best thing about One-Tel’s internet access is it always costs 1p per minute even at peak rate. This is around a quarter of the cost of a local rate BT peak call. There’s no signup fee, no service charge and no obligation to use it. You dial up through a free phone number and One-Tel bill you...

On browsing through the morning paper I found an advert for OneTel, they promised fast access to the internet for only 1p a minute, with no connection charges just 1p a minute all day, every day.
