Fax machine...

...We currently have a seperate line for our fax machine. We probably receive around 1 fax per week and send less than that!

So we pay £180.00 per year for line rental and £20.00 per year for fax calls.

What other options are there?

One line? For both telephone and fax?


All suggestions welcomed.

Try tone recognition
I used to use a fax machine that would recognise a different tone and would answer this. You then need to pay BT a small quarterly amount for a separate number which would share the existing phone line but would ring with the different tone.

I have recently signed up with so that faxes are received by email into my inbox. You get a dedicated fax no. and if you receive < 20 sheets per month its free.

You will have to pay a small amount if you want to send as well.

Use your broadband line!
Hi Nicholas

If you have broadband, what are you doing with the analogue line that is carrying the signal? If you do not use it for anything else, plug your fax machine into this and just pay (extra) for the outgoing calls!

Puma fax
Use Puma fax - I was in exactly the same position now I use Puma fax. I have a fax number from them for free and faxes come into my email account. If you have to send faxes I believe you can do so with puma for a fee, if not just use your phone line for the odd fax sent.

Internet fax service instead of the fax machine
Just try a fax email service and you'll never regret for it. You'll be able to send lots of faxes at the same time. You'll save lots of money and time. I use and it's really reliable and available worldwide. For more details go to FAQ page.
