    Can anyone tell me if Virgin Broadband (via a BT Line) with free
    weekend/evening calls requires that the line is taken over by Virgin? If
    not how can Virgin take control of the weekend and eveing calls only?
    Thanks

    Don't know about Virgin but Sky do this quite easily by Carrier Preselection
    (CPS) so calls go via Sky unless overridden by 1280. No line takeover
    needed!

  3. They probably act as a reseller. I have had all my calls billed by
    TalkTalk for several years with free evenings and weekends but still paying
    the line rental to BT. I believe Tesco have a similar scheme. Strangely
    the resellers are usually cheaper than BT which shows how much discount they
    must be getting on bulk purchase.
