Voipfone has announced increase in rates to various destinations including Uk mobiles. Most are now 12 pence/minute (they used to start from 8p/min) whereas calls to 07624 numbers are now 14 pence/min

UK mobiles are all 12p + vat = 14.1p

a bit disappointing really, especially as CallKey have also increased the SIM's own tariff, and I haven't got a 2nd reply to the email about that yet

Voipcheap.com is still 5p/min

You are right!

It is even more!

On off peak periods they are even more expensive than BT!

I have not tested the quality of voipcheap to Uk mobiles. Has anyone else used it;

Call quality is good but you have to watch the website like a hawk to check
the rates haven't changed.
Most of the Fineura (?) companies have been changing free destinations and tweaking call charges over the last week or so.

A number of price changes are in the offing for UK destinations. This is due to BT reworking its wholesale delivery rates.

Consumer rates are also in for a change from October onwards, when BT intros a 3p per call handling charge for its residential and some business users.

Worth checking out http://www.phonecheap.co.uk/rates.php if you're in the UK, as their rates are about as cheap as they get, including 4p a minute for mobiles!
