BT Openreach Reduces New Line Connection Charges a Little

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014 (7:28 am) - Score 1,195
bt-openreach-logo-uk

BT Openreach has made a small reduction to the base cost of having a new phone and or broadband line installed, which applies to both the operators standard Wholesale Line Rental (WLR) and fully unbundled LLU (MPF) services.

The difference, which is fairly insignificant and thus unlikely to be passed on by your ISP as a saving, means that the cost of supplying a new basic and premium line (WLR) will fall from £47.11 today to £47.08 from 1st February 2014.

Elsewhere ISPs that order a new fully unbundled line (MPF) on behalf of their customers, such as Sky Broadband or TalkTalk, will see a reduction of 10p from £45.53 today to £45.43 on 21st March 2014.

    Ive heard of an organisation trying to spin every minor thing in to a good news item, but this takes the special prize for stupidity.

      In fairness Openreach didn’t do a news about this, we just picked up on and reflected the change as we’ve always done.

      Does that basically translate to one of the regular BT fans here sent me an email about this story?

      I was not trolling i am more curious on how a 3p reduction equates to news. It does not seem to be something you would cover on your own accord Mark, or even bother to go and find. Other services in the ISP world have varied in price either higher or lower than that throughout last year, even this year already and those items have not been covered, mainly because there is no song and dance about things that are minor increases or decreases. Certainly sites like ISPreview, TBB etc would not normally cover anything that is only a few pence price change, even line rentals only get a mention when it is 10’s or pence or ponds worth of increases or decreases.

      Regardless i am glad you did post it, any organisation or its cohorts (NOT JUST BT, SO PLEASE DO NOT ASSUME THIS IS BASHING JUST THEM IT APPLIES TO ANY ORGANISATION) that wants to announce to the world… “Look a 3p saving” speaks louder than the actual write up or anything i have to say. Its more a desperate scream than anything.
