On Friday, my wife pointed out that we needed a new handset for our landline. The LCD display is pretty unreadable.

I pointed out that she's the only one who ever uses it and it's costing ยฃ30/month.

The upshot? We're already using a privacy-respecting ISP* and BT only for phone calls so, after August 10th, they're taking over the line.

Makes sense, although there is a slight knock-on effect on credit scores, I hear? Ours should be good enough anyway, hopefully! ๐Ÿคž

Not having a landline phone number will be weird for a bit, but we'll be happy not to get random phone calls from OAPs.

Our number was the tourist information line for this town around 20 years ago and people still use it!

Hilariously, when they realise their error, they ask us (who they don't know for Adam) to help them. It was interesting to do so a couple of times, but not now. ๐Ÿ˜…
