Re: Switching from BT due to April price rise


[re: gomezz] [link to this post]
 
Thanks Gomezz, my Inf 1 was fixed at £18 for 18 months, but I'm still subject to the £2.50 price rise frown

My current offer from BT, is a new smart hub and Inf 1 + LR for £39.49. Take off £18.99 for LR means BB is £20.5. The only offer is the smart hub which I admit would be an upgrade from HH3 but 6 months down the line, I'd expect to see more price increases from BT - based on their performance over the last 2-3 years.

Batboy, any suggestions for Inf #1 unlimited switch? Most providers want HP+BB these days. frown

My LRS runs out begiinng of Aug, and if I wait until the end of the 30 day notification window and there is a 14 migration window, then I'm looking at 4 months of loss for LRS.

Increasing prices so often surely can't be profitable for them when the contract you have with them allows you to leave early without penalty.
But then, I'd imagine most customers don't leave and just take it.

£39.49 for Infinity 1 and a new Smart Hub over 18 months when people are being offered Infinity 2 for £37.49 over 18 months? Is the Hub really worth paying that much extra for?

Do I recall TBB posts sometime last year to the effect that LRS balances had to be refunded if the customer decided to leave following a price increase? Ofcom took the view that in this circumstance losing one's LRS balance would be unlawful hindrance to free movement between ISPs.

I was 10 months into a 12 month offer for infinity 1 at £10 per month plus line rental.

I'm switching to Sky with 40/10 broadband for £21 including line rental. (£10 line rental and £11 broadband - line rental price is for 12 months and broadband is for 18 months)

Is that a limited monthly bandwidth deal ?

BT retentions are offering infinity 1 including line rental at £25.99 a month to people who have an open order to migrate to another ISP. Myself and a lot on BT forum have been offered this.

If you have already placed the order with sky, BT can see that, now they will offer you a far better deal if you ring and ask for cancellations.

All deals are 24 months.

No it's the unlimited 40/10 rather than the 25GB capped product.

I was in my final month of my TV contract so when renegotiating that I asked what he could offer on sky broadband.

In my case it was Infinity 2 + line rental for £35.49 but only for 18 months

Interesting, so place the transfer order and then call BT within 14 day cooling off period to get a better deal. Not sure how the £25.99 which includes line rental would work with my outstanding line rental in advance

I thought that once the order was placed it was against the rules for BT to offer better deal. I suppose it must be ok if I start the conversation by calling BT, instead of them calling me

I suppose it would still be subject to the bi/tri annual increases we have seen over the last few years
