Broadband – If you have the internet + telephone option with neuf (and maybe others) you can use a PC to make calls on the same tariff as your home phone. This means that in the UK I can make free calls to Europe, US, etc. with PC and headset.

Mobile phone – I have used Simyo PAYG for a couple of years now with no problems. If you opt for automatic recharge the credit lasts 3 months. Most PAYG services are 1 month only. If you don’t use the phone much 10 eur for 3 months is pretty good.
