For Bob Pullen or other PlusNet staff : Market A


[link to this post]
 
Hi,
hopefully you have had time to review the new Ofcom proposals.

Unfortunately all the gobledygok and acronyms went way over my head !

As a Market 1 victim I was hoping that Ofcom would scrap the Market 1/2/3 classification,
it hasn't brought any competition to our 1500 lines semi-rural exchange and now it never will....!

Can you tell me, as Market A, would we still have to pay DOUBLE the price ?
Thanks, regards,
Martin

I don't know anything about an ofcom review but I'd certainly like to pay less smile

Annoying that people I know a few miles away pay much less than me. Especially now with most firms like sky and talktalk charging the same for fibre nationwide wherever fibre is available. I think plus.net may now be one of the only ones to charge extra for fibre in some exchanges. I do hope they rethink. Moving providers is a pain.

The TT website is a bit confusing, but there appear to be only three broadband products now. ADSLx at £6.50 (after the introductory free period), FTTC 38Mbps at £10, (or is that £6.50 + £10?), and similarly FTTC 76Mbps at £15 (+£6.50?).

Sky seems to have ADSLx at £7.50 and FTTC at £20. The last I heard that is 38Mbps though you can get 76Mbps by ringing up. I don't know its price.

Both of them do force you to take LLU phone as well. PlusNet just charges you for broadband setup if you don't take their (non-LLU) phone.

BT itself also requires you to take their non-LLU phone, with ADSLx at £16, 38Mbps FTTC at £23 and 76Mbps FTTC at £26.

I'm puzzled as to where you got your facts smile.

You mean like you would have to with any other supplier, on all exchanges?

I don't see OFCOM reviewing private companies' pricing structures. All they can do is regulate the wholesale prices that BT charges these companies.

EE, which is similar to PN in that it supplies BTw based products, charges an extra £10 pm (doubling standard ADSL prices) in out-of-network areas and TT, which is LLU in many areas, charges an extra £15.32 pm (over tripling standard ADSL prices) in out-of-network areas.

How is this any diff from PN's Market 1 pricing?

No, TT charge £15.32 pm extra for all its products outside its LLU areas.

@RobertoS: I read it that the +£6.50 pm is charged on top of all Fibre prices as Superpowered Fibre Broadband is only available to existing TalkTalk Essentials or Plus customers.
