A third of British households refuse to call mobiles from their landline fearing a high bill while more than half say they would use their home phone more if calls to mobiles were included in their allowances.
The figures come from a new YouGov survey commissioned by Orange, which has announced a new broadband package with inclusive calls to mobiles.
For just £15 per month, customers can get unlimited home broadband with inclusive anytime calls to UK landlines and 30 international countries, as well as 500 inclusive minutes to mobile phones on any UK network.
Sylvain Thevenot, Director of Marketing & Propositions, Orange Broadband said: “We all enjoy the comfort of using our home phone to chat, but sometime a fear of costs can prevent us from contacting friends and family when they’re out and about.
“So we’ve decided to offer Brits peace of mind and take home phone calling to the next level by creating the UK’s first home phone package that meets customers calling needs”
