    Points that I noticed:

    1. Caller Display
    - free of charge on Sky
    - can be free of charge on BT (subject to registering for BT Privacy at Home)
    - costs 0.99 per month on PlusNet
    - seems to be part of a boost package of 6 features costing 4.10 per month on TalkTalk

    2. HomeSafe Security (TalkTalk)
    - this may be an optional boost that can be excluded if not required but unsure about that fact!

    3. Inclusive Calls:
    - seem to be restricted to weekends only now for new joiners
    - calls to 0845 & 0870 seem to be inclusive on BT & PlusNet



    Please feel free to correct me on any prices and other points where I've got it wrong!
