Broadband price to go down


[link to this post]
 
The regulator said this morning that BT must reduce its prices to 12pc below inflation by mid-August in areas where it is the only wholesale provider of broadband - 11.7pc of the country. It added that it expects ISPs in those areas to drop retail prices for customers by the end of the year.


My exchange is Nettlebed (RG9 5BA), which according to the SamKnows website is classified as Market 1 (the exchange has BT Wholesale as the sole provider of broadband services). May I therefore expect to see a reduction in price from MAAF during the next few months?

If you are using an IPStream Connect product.

Two flavours of IPStream

BT Central for data going to ISP
Handover at BRAS - which is what BT Connect uses.

If on WBC ADSL2+ then no price cut.

I'm using the standard MAAF 'up to 8mb broadband' service - I don't know whether or not that uses an IPStream Connect product or not?

Its not ADSL2+ though, is it?
