Re: Plusnet "fixed" deals - by way of warning

The only differences I see between pages 57 and 58 are that page 58 is 18-month terms and more expensive. Which if it doesn't include line rental is utterly ridiculous and doesn't sensibly qualify as allowing other-CP line provision.

57 - ADSL
58 - Fibre

I linked fibre because that's what most people seem to be on now. smile

I may be wrong but I thought both Options 3 and 4 were only available on FTTP?

Could be. The document expects us just to know that!

The standard price of the BT Home Hub is up to £129.00 (depending on model supplied).


What's so special about the Home Hub?
Dunno but according to the test document, it was only tested on a Mac not Windows

Yes, they are FTTP.

Also nothing on pages 57 or 58 can be reconciled to the pricing on this page even allowing for looking at the crossed-out standard prices with or without line rental, rather than the short-term deal price.

A load of rubbish.

I believe the prices in the pdf are inflated due to not taking line rental and are not advertised on the usual sales splash page you linked.

LOL. blush

I missed that.

Even less correlation between that and the main sales page then. All 18-month contracts. "Standard Terms" indeed.

On page 57 - BT Total Broadband Option 3 over Fibre.

Nice try, but no cigar smile

Quite apart from the fact that for many years they have only ever advertised "Special offers". Just the offers change periodically.

They have to be regarded as the actual pricing, and that price guide as purely a legal technicality. Which wouldn't stand up for a minute if posted in a shop as "Sale price xxxxx, Normal price yyyy".

They even show the "Normal price" on the main sales page.

That's hilarious. Not only that, but look at the price and cessation fees compared to everything else on that page.

I've always found BT's price advertising to be "curious" at best.

Unlimited Infinity 1: Above the £10 per month offer price, £20 per month is crossed out which in any normal convention means £20 per month is the normal price.

No, dig to the well-hidden offer terms and £26 is the normal price.
