Yarwell, BT price list discrepancy


[link to this post]
 
Hi, first just to say thanks to yarwell for making an easy list to look at FTTC prices and packages. Wish all ISP's did a simple list like that.

Problem is, the total price on BT option 2 fiber, seems wrong. It cost more than £307.20 a year beacuse it's an 18 month contract not 12 months.

https://spreadsheets0.google.com/pub?hl=en&hl=en&key...

18x25= £450 year minus £15 current offer.

Dont know why fiber is still so expenisve anyway. It about time it came down to about £19 a month. Even though BT are not the best, they work out beter value for money than all the others. High user more so. smile

Disagree. Raise the price and pay for the UK's infrastructure upgrades.

You mean the "basic cost in year 1"? How else are you going to compare costs?

Well I will be last to upgrade then, as I will let everyone else pay over the top, so I don't have to. wink smile

Yarwell hasn't posted on these forums since 16 November. The spreadsheet was created by orly, and the two of them update it.

It won't cost more than £307 a year...because it costs 307 a year.

Erm, no. The quoted Thinkbroadband article is misleading unfortunately. That article is about a promotional offer package for new customers only and includes a "Evening & Weekends" calls package.

Pre-existing customers of Infinity had their monthly price increased to £26.80 as from 3 December 2011. At least that is what happened to me, since I have Infinity Option 2 with the addition of an "Anytime" calls package that costs extra on top of the broadband service.
