As you've been billed over £16 for additional call charges, might it be
worth upgrading to any-time calls? It'd only cost an extra £4 a month
for anytime calls, including to mobiles.

Problem is that the Mrs spent 1hr10min to her sister in Hull on one call which used to be untimed in KCOM land, but now racked up over £10!

I did this on Virgin, most operators offer this, however one issue seems to
be that some calls for no good reason seem not to always be included.
Too many different bloody number types around these days.

Someone should make a device you can plug into a phone which makes a beep-beep-beep noise after 55 minutes.

Or wire the phone through a clockwork runback timer.

I actually set up our Asterisk box to give 5 minute, 2 minute and 1
minute verbal warnings, before cutting off with 30 seconds to go!

Moving off the POTS line completely very soon, anyway.

Brian Gaff presented the following explanation :

Get a notebook and print out which calls are and are not included in
the free calls. Every ISP has a list you can print out. Plusnet's
package includes all the common numbers as part of the package free for
1 hour, then 2000 minutes of free calls to mobiles. I'm not sure
whether the mobile calls have a 1 hour limit or not.
