G.fast pilot BT Wholesale pricing


[link to this post]
 
For the curious the pricing of G.fast, or FTTC 160/30 and 330/50 variants, is on the BT Wholesale website. All prices are monthly rental charges and exclude VAT.

£19.00 for 160/30
£23.00 for 330/50.

Interestingly the transition product FTTP version of 330/50 is considerably more expensive at £46.00.

Taking data-only FTTP services the pricing is £28.00 for 160/30 and £55.00 for 330/50.

For comparison, the BT Wholesale price list shows a charge of £16.00/month for 80/20 FTTC and £14.00 for the 40/10 service.

Going by that formula the price difference between 330/50 and 80/20 at retail shouldn't be massive, perhaps ball park £15/month unless on FTTP.

A very quick google takes me here and prices appear to be in the "WBC Pricelist - Effective 1 September 2017".

It wasn't very hard to find...

EDIT : Oddly when compared to other packages the pricing of 330/50 is MUCH cheaper on FTTC than on FTTP. There is also no listing for 330/30 on FTTC but there still is on FTTP.

There's no 330/30 FTTC product, never has been.

The difference in pricing between FTTC and P on that one tier is odd indeed.

There was never a 330/50 before 1/9 either. So, FTTP they have kept 330/30 and added 330/50 but for FTTC they have not created a 330/30 - hence the reason I made my comment. You would think maybe they would have removed the 330/30 and migrated existing users over to keep the product offerings simpler - there are now distinct differences between FTTP and FTTC which barring the fact FTTC couldn't previously run the faster packages was not previously the case.

To avoid the 'I cannot get it at those prices' emails I've backed off from running all the wholesale changes these days...
