A relative has received a letter and email from BT offering 6 months free Ultrafast in the Huntingdon trial area - does anyone know if this is really "free" and what happens at the end of the 6 months (are they charged the going rate for the ultrafast, or do they go back to their existing package - which includes some features not available on the currently sold ADSL2+ packages that they've currently got)
They're a bit hesitant to contact BT about it as at first they weren't convinced it was even legitimate (not being in to broadband news and not knowing about "ultrafast" or a "trial" even taking place, and not even on FTTC yet) and didn't want to just get signed up to something and then find out the bad news of a huge bill increase at a later date.
One of the messages (I think the email, not the letter) suggested that the existing connection would be left active, but I've not seen the letter/email to be 100% certain on what was said - only had them read to be over the phone to see if it was something I was aware of and could find out more about.
