    For what it is worth, I use the U.S. Naval Observatory phone line.

    I think it cost 50 or 75 cents to call, but I only do it once a week and
    the land line does not seem to have any delay, so the time is hould be
    accurate. The time is spoken in English every ten or fifteen seconds
    with "beeps" for each second, and a different "beep" for the minute. The
    time is given in Universal and Eastern time alternately.
