B T Announce Big Price Increases


[link to this post]
 
Line Rental UP £1 a month

Anytime call Package UP £0.55 a month

Standard price for BT Infinity up £2 a Month


With Inflation at a fraction of 1% and p Broadband demand increasing it is difficult to see how BT can justify this increase

Link to a news article in case anyone wants to find out more...

Per minute call charges and call setup charges are also rising.

Huge increase in broadband data and massive TV rights costs have to be paid by someone.

And now by sheer co-incidence we will see a stream of other providers increasing their charges.

That and all the cash backs and silly offers that they do all year round to lure new customers into their trap their TV service is a loss leader no 2 ways about it

And the other big ISP's will just like sheep follow BT with their price increases , that's your mass market isp mantra

Not a surprise anymore unfortunately, time they left line rental alone and hiked up the price of broadband and their TV packages (Sky TV packages are increasing) tongue

There was a piece in the print edition of the Times the other day that said BT (OR) were planning to have packages offering Broadband only services, something which I think I've read about on here a while ago.

What was interesting was that the article also said that BT were planning to deliver voice services via Broadband (VoIP) and cease the old style telephone service by around 2025, something which I'd not heard before. Given the minimum call cost is going to be around 30p for a 1 minute call, I can see it hastening the arrival of domestic VoIP for those with decent connections and/or dodgy mobile services.

Presumably rural and remote communities would still be able to have old style telephone services unless the idea of a Broadband USO became a reality. Even then it would need to be as reliable as POTS, something I doubt would be achievable for a while yet.

You could still leave even if your contract had 11 months left.
