No hidden costs, I use localphone.com for all my outgoing mobile phone calls from my VOIP system and just pay the rate they quote on their webpages. Also with localphone, you can credit it by £1 so it is cheap to try out. The most you can lose is £1.

Does anyone know of any VoIP provider that actually offers SIP TLS and media encryption support, for the trunk to the provider? It seems very thin on the ground and some of the "white paper" articles I have read for the providers listed above are, to be frank, a bit shocking.

Yay.com, Voicehost offered such features the last time i tried them. I don't think it's something most residential users want tbh. 🤷🏼‍♂️

TBH, I think most residential users (indeed most business users) would not know about such things, and neither should they. It should be the responsibility of the service providers to ensure that, where possible, data is kept secure. True, there are other parts of the networks that are unencrypted in PSTN land, but this isn't as accessible generally. You have to trust someone at some point, and this is generally the provider you decide to go with, but any connection between you and them across the internet is untrusted so should be secure by default, not an afterthought.

A lot of people, but not all, understand that when using the Internet, certain traffic should be encrypted. I'm pretty sure that if banks, medical practices, government departments and a host of other providers decided that they would allow plain text, unencrypted traffic across the Internet, that a bunch of people would complain. But VoIP and digital telephony is still seen as almost magical and a "new" technology, even though it has been around for decades. Indeed the technology and understanding to to encrypt it has also been around for decades, but VoIP providers seem wholeheartedly complacent and stuck fast in the "this will never happen" camp, which is a shame.
