Sneaky KCOM fibre sales strategy


[link to this post]
 
KCOM seems to have totally changed their strategy for selling fibre in the last couple of weeks, and drastically increased prices through the back door.

Until recently, the entry-level fibre package (at 50/10 speeds) was the same price as the standard ADSL package, at £32pm. Both with 35GB usage allowance and a call package.

Their strategy (of keeping fibre price the same as DSL price) hasn't changed. (*)

However, the fibre packages no longer offer any entry-level option: the lowest speed is now 150Mbps, and the lowest allowance is 200GB. This means the first fibre package starts at £40 without a call allowance.

Once a UK call package is included (where the minimum price a month ago was £32pm), the price this month is now £45.

Even worse, once the checker detects that fibre is available to you, it only offers you a choice of fibre packages. The ADSL ones have disappeared.

(*) - Strike that. Having looked more closely, the price for 150mbps fibre is £5pm higher than ADSL, and 350Mbps is £10pm higher - when using identical usage and call allowances.

Just noticed the revamp of packages, so will have to sit down on Thursday and update listings.
