1899.com - Cheap telephone tariffs

  Zak 19:44 16 Feb 2005

I received an e-mail from this company offering very good competitive rates.

Connection charge 3p from fixed BT line and UK calls currently 0.00p/min. Germany the same, Ireland 0.05p/min.

However I do have a major concern as the sign up pages and pges requesting credit/debit card details are not https: server, secure site.

I have e-mailed the company for their comments.

Although I am tempted by their offer, the lack of a secure server means that I will not sign up.

Am I being too careful? Paranoid even?

I joined them on Sunday evening and so far have only remembered to dial 1899 before my calls my once, but I suppose that I shall get used to it!

a fair few companies tend to keep the last four digits of your credit card number so it's not unusual(Tom Jones).

I joined them last week BRILLIANT no problems (so far) I am saving a fortune on BT & Onetel prices!

nohope & Phphred, I would be interested in knowing what the monthly(?) bill comes to - if you don't mind that is. Calls for 0p sound incredible! How do they make money or even turn a profit?

Do you make many calls - both daytime and evening?

Just trying to get an idea for some form of comparison.
