  1. Or move to France where there are at least 4 companies offering a 3-in-1 package – sat. TV / Internet and tel. to 80 countries worldwide 24/7 landline-to-landline + 2H per month to mobiles in France.
    That nasty little ferret SarKozy put the TVA up from 5% to 19%, so that we pay with Orange €52 per month. When we move we will change to Free @€29 per month.

    The Dutch used to offer a similar system but that stopped 2 years ago. Free offer a 2H per month mobile @ €2 per month with extra minutes @ 0.056C per minute.

    I don’t know of another EU country that offers services at anywhere near these rates – why not – the Three Musketeers would not be amused – all for one and one for all – not in the EU pal.
