Re: BT Broadband & Phone - Price Increase


[re: Oliver341] [link to this post]
 
Yes it's a shame really, but still useful for me seeing as I don't make that many calls from my landline anyway, mostly to Government organisations, like Mencap, local council and companies that I buy things from, although the latter is mostly done on-line anyway.

Seeing as my LRS doesn't expire until end of March, I cannot really do anything until then, but will seriously be looking at PlusNet for BB/Phone, except that i would probably then have to keep Sky for the programs I like to watch, or look at TalkTalk for everything, which I don't think is an option given they have a poor reputation

Anytime calls is going up to £7

It's been £7 since April for new customers, are existing customers still paying the old price?

From my last bill:
Anytime calls add-on 28 Sep-27 Oct 13 £ 5.15
This is the cost of your Anytime calls add-on charged in advance (£5.15 a
month)

That's more reasonable. £7 is a silly price when compared to the other providers.

BT Retail charge for call packages per account, not per line. This makes them a better deal for those of us with two lines than other providers, even though I'd get a considerable discount from Zen if I moved my FTTC line to Zen.

My eventual intention is to move my second line to a VoIP provider, then move the FTTC line to Zen.

Maybe so but £5 doesnt make it much better value than £7.

If it wasnt for DSL making you have to pay for a line I am pretty sure you would get a better mobile deal than 15 line rental + 5 for unlimited calls excluding mobiles and + whatever fee for caller display.

Given how limited a landline is and the poor quality (my line is very low audio signal both ways) I would probably pay BT £2 at the absolute most for unlimited calls. Which in reality is £19, when factoring in the line rental and caller display.

I've never been on the receiving end of one of their calls, so perhaps you can enlighten me.

I stopped using 18866 when it became clear many people saw my caller id come through as "international" or "unavailable" and didn't pick up the phone.


yes I see that when my parents ring me on my landline but my mobile shows a number. Another limitation of BT lines there, it doesnt show international numbers.

I believe the new £7 Anytime plan includes cheaper mobile calls than the old £5.15 plan.
