The extraordinarily low prices of TPG’s home phone and broadband deals are even cheaper than some of the Naked DSL plans out there, which means there is a large amount of people who sign up to TPG’s bundles who don’t even intend to use the home phone – they just want a cheap broadband plan with a large amount of download quota.

For customers who do want to take advantage of having an active home phone line with TPG, below we have provided details of the call rates. While there are no calls included for the month, the call rates are decent, and some of the international call rates are extremely cheap, eliminating the need to purchase international calling cards.
