BT Openreach UK Confirm 6 Month FTTC Superfast Broadband Price Cut in 2013

Tuesday, Oct 2nd, 2012 (8:38 am) - Score 990

BTOpenreach, which manages access to BT’s national UK telecoms network, has announced that ISPs offering its up to 80Mbps capable superfast broadband (FTTC) service will from next year be able to discount the connection fee to £30 +vat (normally £80) for a period of 6 months.

The new Simultaneous Provide (SIM) based discount, which is set to run from 1st January 2013 to 30th June 2013, will only be available to FTTC customers who also take the service alongside a newly ordered copper phone line (WLR or MPF). This also covers BTWholesale lines and Fully Unbundled (MPF) lines that have been stopped for greater than 90 days.

The new discount can also be combined with an ISPs existing 80Mbps FTTC launch offers. As usual Openreach will initially charge the full connection price but will then credit ISPs for new copper phone line provides on the subsequent bill.

It should be said that not all ISPs choose to pass such savings on to their customers, although others have used it to make more attractive “free connection” promotions for their packages.
