How ...?


[link to this post]
 
... on the current www.bt.com site, starting from the home page, do you get to see the available broadband packages, without them being bundled in with phone (calls) packages?

No, i couldn't find them either, only found one in the business bb side, would appear they are adding the phone free to all bb packages?

Easy! Not so! Dammit, they've gone and changed it. Maybe they only sell packages now? Not a problem if you already have a BT line.

All I can suggest is pretend you want to change your existing BT BB.

On Home: 2nd Tab at top: Phone, Broadband & TV
Already with BT?: Do I have the best value package?
Then see Just Broadband Option 2 & 3 (dunno where's 1 gone) on R.

Alternatively, if you already have a BT line, I suppose you just merge that into a bundled offering, starting a new contract term, I expect.

I note of the Phone/BB Bundles, BT only lists 4 combinations out of the possible 9:
  • Phone: WE, Eve & WE, Anytime X
  • BB: Opt 1 (10GB), Opt 2 (40GB) Opt 3 (Unlimited)
I guess, if you already have a BT Call Plan, you could negotiate for the missing others at the BB prices of:
  • Opt 1: £11 pm
  • Opt 2: £18 pm
  • Opt 3 or Infinity: £23 pm

No doubt this is all part of making things simple.

As an aside, have you clicked one of the "More" buttons on that page?

Yes, just a revolving billboard with further features. What have I missed?

Bt are so worried that people will leave that they now force a 18 month contract on them.

Bt give people a choice, not everyone wants a phone and broadband package

The question was how do you find that choice.

It has been found, but by a far from obvious route. Your statement doesn't make sense, particularly as the vast majority of ISPs supply broadband-only packages, whether or not they offer bundles.
