Re: Merging of BT brands?


[re: Oliver341] [link to this post]
 
In reply to a post by Oliver341:
It seems that the brands remain.

Interesting that Andy Baker retains the title of "CEO Plusnet", under the new structure Marc Allera is the overall boss so Andy Baker will be more of a Managing Director than a CEO.


If they changed anything they would lose customers, certainly if they put the price of Plusnet up to the extortionate BT prices.

I said before I would never go back to Bt itself and while i know BT owns plusnet it is still not the same as BT old service. If it ever got to be like that I would be gone. i do have over 12 months left on my contract, but I assume if they made such a drastic change I could get out early.

plusnet at the moment is offing me an ok service, now the connection problem is sorted out, I presume it have been as i have not had any downtime for a couple of months and the price of my mobile phone service from plusnet is good compared to others.

This will means a price rise - if not my contract is with plusnet so if BT do this then I can leave as my contract wont be with the new company.

I am sure that is right

Did you read the links people posted, no signs that this will mean a price rise, other than the usual traditional annual price rises.

On your contract thing, if (and this is not what is happening) PlusNet was to pass on your contract to BT so long as service delivery and pricing remain same you have no option to leave, this story has been played out many times as providers have bulk sold customers when wanting to leave different segments of the market.

I'd guarantee there will be price rises "soon" - but not necessarily as a direct result of this.

Any idea whether this merge will now make Plusnet subject to the Ofcom margin squeeze test applied to BT's consumer products? In which case a price rise will not just be likely, but obligated.

You'd have to ask Ofcom that question
