Cost of Tiscali dial-up in evenings?

Tiscali advertise that their dial-up costs 1p per minute in evenings & weekends. So an hour on line costs 60p. But if you still have a BT phone you now pay only 5p per hour at evenings and weekends. SO....can anyone with BT using a Tiscali dial-up tell me how much it is costing them in the evenings/weekends? It's just a matter of curiosity for me as I have Pipex Broadband, but a couple of my friends have signed up to Tiscali dial up recently.

I think that you will find that your BT bill will show 1p per minute for the Tiscali service.Normal rates will apply the rest of the day.The BT friends and family do not count on this service.You may also find that there is a minimum connection charge.

I was on Tiscali/Lineone dial up, and if you use the service very wisely then you are okay. Spend a hour every evening or over the weekend, and it can get to a time watching exercise, best to consider one of Tiscali's lower price packages.

crx1600-- I was on Lineone [Tiscali] BT Surftime Dial-up package, and BT would not allow me have this service on Friends and Family.Perhaps things have changed now!:o)

There would be little point in Tiscali allowing a PAYG number to bring in a reduced income - its share of the cost of the calls from BT are obviously used to run and maintain the service.

Tiscali's PAYG number is 0844 057 5000 *** - the full list of dialup numbers can be found at:

Like crx1600, I also use the old 08456614681 number. It still works.
