A great way to save money 24/7.

AdvantagesAn effective and easy way to save money.

DisadvantagesWhy didn't I discover this company sooner?

"There's no such thing as a free lunch, but why pay more for something than you have to? I discovered Telecomplus when a friend told me how much he was paying for the phone calls he was making and I was genuinely shocked! When I sat down and compared the cost of a call with T+ against what BT were charging me, I realised that instead of paying £120 a quarter, it would be around £80. So what's the catch? Well, after searching the internet and checking ..." Read review

Advantagesmore than just good mobile

Disadvantagesminor details

"...one day we came across telecom plus..and thought we would give it a try...having been a little fed up with running out of credits at the wrong moments on our pay as you go,not to mention expensive call rates. There are just so many aspects to telecom plus it is hard to say where to start,but being as our main interest in having it was our mobile situation we will stick with that to start. Firstly their coverage is excellent...using "roaming" ..." Read review

Great Value

AdvantagesExcellent value

DisadvantagesTelecom plus retain title with subsidized mobile phones

"...that with the subsidised version Telecom plus are still owners of your phone unlike with the non-subsidized version which immediately benefits from £5.99 per month line rental. You can alos benefit from this tariff if you have a Orange, Virgin, One-2-One or dual-band phone and get a £25 SIM pack (which includes first £25 of calls free). For a Nokia 5146 you have to pay £25 one-off fee (which includes first £25 of calls free) and Telecom plus still ..." Read review

Quality Service, Quality Provision, Quality Prices

AdvantagesCheaper gas and electricity etc. on ONE bill, with ONE payment going out each month

DisadvantagesUnfortunately they don't cover water bills!

"...Club (the trading name of Telecom Plus). Because I was annoyed with the so called "Cheaper Bills" I'd had, I went online to the website that was advertised on the flyer. The content of the site was straight forward and informative, AND there was the option to register online for the services. However, before doing that, I phoned the number on the flyer and spoke to the local agent, and we arranged a time for him to call round and talk further. The ..." Read review

Telecom Plus real savings

AdvantagesBest value for money on all services

Cheap, but definately not tacky

AdvantagesGreat customer service and guidance from your local rep

DisadvantagesAs far as I know you can only pay by direct debit

"...When I was told about telecom plus by a relative, I didn't think that I would get good enough value because in my opinon I would have to cope with a line rental and my calls. Enter Mobile Extra, upon being told about this service, I was finnally talked into it and got a phone from them! I found out that the promises of the company were true! My average monthly bill has never been more than £5 and I have now been with them for nearly a year. The ..." Read review

Why pay more

AdvantagesFree installation and cheaper call charges

DisadvantagesOnly seems to cater for those with a BT phone line

"...tried the free service from Telecom Plus. I had absolutely no idea what he was talking about, so next day I went on the Internet and looked them up. They're a British company that offers Gas and Electric services as well as mobile phone services and telephone services. I was only interested in the telephone service so I was quite happy that the route I took to the site placed me in that particular segment straight away, almost as if they knew. They ..." Read review

Decided to take the plunge

AdvantagesCheap calls with no access codes to dial.

DisadvantagesNot enough distributors to introduce more people to the services

"I wanted to try out a mobile, the shops all asked me how much use would it get, how would I know never having owned one. My brother mentioned T+ and a quick web search found a distributor. I wasn't ttold about the fixed line savings as well! The thought of having two phones and still saving money swung it for me. It dawned on me that if I hadn't heard of the company how many others hadn't, so I became a distributor, I have introduced well over ..." Read review

real savings and a bill I can understand

AdvantagesBest value for money

Disadvantagesnone so far

"...a smart box through Asford Telecom and this gave me real savings over my BT bill so you can imagine my dissapointment when the company folded and I had to revert back to BT and higher charges. Thank goodness someone introduced me to Telecom plus. Not only is the smart box free(You pay £10 in advance which is credited to your account)but it is shaped like a piggy bank and chooses the cheapest route for your call not just a cheaper route. They also ..." Read review
