Those counting the pennies should note that this very attractive deal appears to be for 12 months only, after which you will have to negotiate away a very hefty price rise or switch to another ISP. Given the problems such switching can cause even before Covid etc I'd be reluctant to take this course especially if I was working from home and dependent on my BB.

I think you are forgetting the fairly recent Ofcom requirement for recontracting customers to be offered similar or better terms than new customers.

Just quoting from their current T&Cs, Bob, and being a grumpy old git I don't trust any of 'em frown

Good Morning All,

Having got throughly fed up with BT, who still haven't fixed my landline, I have this morning placed an order with Pulse8 Broadband.

Now to wait and see how the migration goes!

But NOT for much longer!

Which package did you go for? They do look good, and only a 1 month contract!

Zen > AAISP Home::1 1TB > BT Infinity 2 > Sky Fibre Max

I went with Ultimate Home Fibre @ £33.00 per month plus a Static IP @ £2.00 per month, total £35.00

Exactly what I'm looking at! Was going to call TTB up about 12m contract but I think this will do! Moving from BT also.

Sure I looked at them previously, must have missed that plan!

It may be going too far to say there is an Ofcom "requirement" that ISPs should offer recontracting customers the same prices as new customers. It is more an "encouragement", but certainly some of the big providers have agreed to do so. There was an update from Ofcom on 28 July 2020 in which the relevant sentence is: "EE and Plusnet have also now joined BT, Sky and TalkTalk in deciding to give all existing customers access to new customer prices."
