Telecom GB is offering round-the-clock flat-rate unmetered Internet calls and local telephone calls.

Two deals are available – users can either pay a monthly fee of £9.99 and enjoy unmetered Internet and local calls, or pay £5.99 a month for unmetered local telephone calls. Both deals are round-the-clock.

National calls are charged at 3.95p per minute during the day, 1.95p per minute in the evening, and 1.5p per minute on the weekend.
