BT waiving extra cost for 80/20 upgrade?


[link to this post]
 
Just checked out the prices for Business Infinity on 80/20 upgraded to unlimited with a /29 and it is listed at £40 p/m + VAT which is the same price I was seeing for 40/10 last week.

Does this mean BT are waving extra Openreach costs for the upgrade or is their order system screwed up?

knowing bt they charge you for the upgrade (you would need to call BT Business on there prices)

think the VDSL hardware all ready supports 80mb/20 they just had it limited to 40/10 profile at the time

Yeah but the cost from open reach is about 3 quid more (per month) for the 80/20 which most other ISPs are charging (some a little more) but it seems BT are absorbing these costs since the price I am seeing is the same as before the 80/20 upgrade.

That's what I heard too.

Where are you seeing anything about 80/20 on the website, apart from the speed forecaster which just quotes the BT Wholesale figure?

All text elsewhere seems to describe 40Mbps.

Have to agree, nothing on consumer side. On business side looks like last weeks still

http://business.bt.com/broadband-and-internet/fibre-...

No mention of speeds either. Are people therefore assuming this means 80/20 supply?

Also found some 404 pages, so maybe site is being updated now.

When you put through the order, it says 80/20 for £40, like the OP says.

I got one page that gave a postcode checker and one that was a number checker. Both gave 51.7/13.2, with no qualification. But that's all.

When you go through the order process it states the speed, I am not seeing it on any other pages other than those in the order process.

But is it correct, I wonder? As I've said, all we are seeing is the BT Wholesale figure. There is nothing about it even suggesting it in the text of any page.

Though of course, by the time any connection took place things could be different, especially on BT where they may just (have) uncap(ped) the speeds.
