It's quite likely. BT are probably making BTP&CD an ongoing retention tool which is pretty cheap for them at £1.75 a month whilst valuable enough to make a lot of people commit for 12 months.
which we can see from the droves here leaving for plusnet is working well?
This is the first time I have been confused by billing.
No answer as to what happens when LRS expires.
BT telling me I cannot have LRS and 0 charged caller display at same time.
LRS alone is enough as a rentention tool in my opinion for the line rental, since thats a 12month up front payment.
Now I am sitting here thinking of 2 options I wasnt even considering before, they are.
1 - Leave BT completely (As others have done), I wasnt even considering this before, only the FTTC I was considering not line rental.
2 - Cancel Bt Privacy altogether. BT were occasionally making some £2 charges of me as I didnt always do the calls required. If i cancel they make none of me. My issue is tho although I get very few incoming calls on my line if its an important call I miss the caller display can be important for determining I missed an important call, but 90% of inbound calls say 'international'.
I will probably give BT retentions a shot, tell them I am leaving unless I get inclusive BT privacy with my LRS.
