BT Raises Price of Superfast Broadband 76Mbps BTInfinity Option 2

Thursday, Jun 25th, 2015 (11:47 am) - Score 1,740

The word went out this morning that the standard price of BT’s superfast broadband (up to 76Mbps) BTInfinity Option 2 (FTTC) package has increased by +£2 to £30 per month, which is in addition to the cost of Phone Line Rental from £16.99 per month (or £15.29 if you pre-pay for a year in advance).

In fairness it’s been hard to pin the price of BT’s packages down over the past 6 months and we’ve seen their BTInfinity Option 2 service move from £25 to £26 to £28 and then back again. The complexity of different deals and offers means that identifying a standard price for any package is now rather complicated, although £30 is the highest it’s been.

It’s also now possible to get BT’s cheapest standard broadband (up to 17Mbps) package, which comes with a 10GB usage allowance, either with unlimited weekend calls (£5 per month) or without (£4.75 per month), although we’re not sure if the tiny price difference warrants the extra confusion that doing this adds.

The same split also exists for their entry-level BTInfinity Option 1 (up to 38Mbps + 20GB usage), which is now £9.75 without free calls or £10 with unlimited weekend calls. We get the distinct impression that BT are testing the waters here to find what kind of difference it makes to uptake, especially with ISPs like TalkTalk also dropping the free calls element from their cheapest bundles.

As usual all of BT’s packages include a free HomeHub router, free BT WiFi access, free BTSport TV content (except EU sport), online cloud storage, email and Internet security / parental control features.
