PAYING £250 a year to rent a landline to receive marketing calls on is worth every penny, Britain has agreed.
Line rental, a necessity for anyone who wants to illegally download from the internet, is in no way resented by the people of Britain when they look for a new broadband deal.
Tom Booker of Wrexham said: “They don’t mention the cost of line rental when they advertise broadband because there’s no need to. Everyone’s happy to pay it whatever the cost.
“Sure, I get unsolicited texts about PPI claims, but it’s so much more personal when it’s a robot voice on the other end of the phone.
“Plus mums don’t like to phone mobiles because they don’t understand them, and who’d miss out on a lovely long call from mum about her Zumba friend’s dog’s distemper?”
A spokesman for the internet service providers’ association said: “I’m so glad the public understands.
“We’ll also be introducing a standing charge, which is different from line rental because it is.”
