What is a reasonable price for Unlimited WBC per month?
What I mean by reasonable price can be shown with an example. A computer shop sells a computer part for the reasonable price of cost price + 15% so what is the equivalent reasonable price for Unlimited WBC?
Right now I am charged £29.40 by BT for Unlimited WBC and anytime calls but I can switch over to EE who charge only £7.50 for the same Unlimited WBC and anytime calls package.
I don't need the anytime calls so an even better option for me is Unlimited WBC from EE without anytime calls at a cost of £2.50 per month.
So basically BT's Unlimited WBC and anytime calls package is costing me just over £350 per year and it would cost only £30 per year if I migrate to EE on their £2.50 Unlimited WBC package.
It's been said that for EE the £2.50 price is a loss leader but no factual information is forthcoming regarding the loss. Allegedly EE can make up the difference with other charges/costs but I find it difficult to believe these extra charges could explain the price difference. My Unlimited WBC is stupidly expensive from BT yet it's crazy cheap from EE.
I realise I have cross posted this but I think it really deserves a wider audience in here than the EE forum.
EDIT: Here is the link to the EE page:
You have to enter your phone number and it'll give you the options available. The cheapest option is the £5 Unlimited WBC broadband with evening and weekend calls and because I am a T-Mobile customer I tick the existing customer box and they give me a credit of £30 making it £2.50 per month.
Even at £5 per month for non-customers it's still a bargain!!
Sorry for not including this earlier. I hope XRay doesn't read this because he'll be able to say I told you so and he would be correct! LOL!
