Freecalls - 5 Free Hours - Which quickly reduces to about 5 minutes! lol

    Interested by the earlier post of paul 123 - "FreeCall 5 hour giveaway" I
    thought I would try Finarea / Betamax's latest offering.

    Enjoyably it appeared to work as might be hoped for the first few calls
    (over 1 minute duration, permitted direct calls [bi-directionally PSTN <->
    FreeCall <-> PSTN], etc.). However, quite soon the calls were refused (total
    call time used believed to be ~ 5 minutes total) and I was offered to be
    redirected to the website to buy credit ! (Perhaps it is a typo - 5 minutes
    free rather than hours ! - lol!).

    In any event, a subsequent account created did re-permit free calls -
    however now limited to 1 minute duration max. (and after a total of about 5
    minutes no more free calls were permitted!).

    Hence, it seems to me that whatever the hopes may be about this trial offer
    / etc. it actually amounts to little or no more than the previous offerings.

    What is the current best deal for "unlimited" UK landline calls (whether
    VoIP or PSTN service)? I am looking for something probably sub £5 per month
    (preferably substantially sub that mark).

    Best wishes,
