Will PN installation cost be increasing?


[link to this post]
 
Aimed at PN staff, mostly...

I read elsewhere (*) that the discount rate for installation ended on 30/06 and the new price for installs goes from 75 to 80 in a couple of months, so wondered if/when PN may change the installation cost from the current/recent 50 pounds, please.

It may be some years before FTTC comes into my area, but I'm interested for other reasons (family in two parts of England have/will have the option for higher speed).

(*) and did link to the post for someone at TB to cover the story, but didn't see anything covering it.

And given the news item about 24 exchanges having no setup fees (which ISPs might either pass on to customers, or use to pay for local advertising), does PN have a list of the 24 exchanges, or has it not yet been released, please?

... in a promotion which will run from the 7th of October to 31st December 2011. At full price, setup would cost £80 +VAT, but users connected to the 24 exchanges will be able to take it up for free.

As yet, the exchanges haven't been announced ....

.... to the public, but if ISPs are to be encouraged to use the savings on installation towards promoting fibre, there may be lists held (perhaps with NDAs for now).

Hence this further query (and that there has been nothing from PN, so far).

I'm not aware of any changes planned for this.

If there were then NDAs normally have a clause to stop you talking about what's in the NDA so we wouldn't be able to acknowledge or not wink


FYI I'm not aware that these exchanges have been announced.
