ISP BT Bundles Free Google Home with UK Fibre Broadband Packages

Friday, Mar 29th, 2019 (8:03 am) - Score 4,107

New customers of UK ISP BT can now get an included Google Home AI smart speaker (RRP £129) when they sign-up to one of the provider’s Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC), Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) or G.fast based broadband and phone packages. Reward cards (Preloaded MasterCard) valued between £30 to £120 are also included.

As usual each package will come attached to an 18 month contract term, phone line rental, unlimited data usage, a wireless router (Smart Hub 1 or 2), Cloud storage (online backup), Virus Protect, Parental Controls, Call Protect (stops nuisance calls), free access to BT’s national network of public WiFi hotspots and a “Speed Guarantee” on their ultrafast packages (i.e. claim £20 back for slower than the minimum expected speed).

Apparently the new gadget offer, which will also be available on selected Pay TV bundles, will be available to order until 25th April 2019. Earlier this year BT also announced that they would “not be increasing prices for BT broadband, home phone and mobile plans in 2019” and from 2020 they’ll instead adopt price increases linked to inflation (here).

    So are BT now moving to an automatic annual price rise as opposed to an purely coincidental annual price rise 😉

    Personally i’d rather they stopped adding ‘free’ stuff which just bumps up their base price.

      The “base” price isn’t what gets me, it’s the introductory price and then the “thereafter price”. Look at Superfast 2. £38.99/month which jumps to £58.99/month after the contract period. What the actual hell is that about?

      PlusNet, the same company minus some bells and whistles (and the shiny gotcha extras) provide the same thing for £34.99/month and won’t price gouge you after 18 months are up. You’ll probably still pay £34.99/month. Which, you know, kind of make sense seeing as you’re then being loyal by staying with them and it’s not suddenly costing them 50% more to provide you with the exact same service.

      That price jump is nothing short of ludicrous.

      Seems they are all jumping on the bandwagon now.

      Although to be fair to Three they did say you could leave if you didn’t like it (mid contract).

      @Mike I’m pretty sure that unless the price hike is the yearly one which is in line with the RPI increase, they are legally obliged to allow you to exit the contract for a period of 30 days of notice of the price increase if you aren’t happy to pay. So I don’t believe there’s anything nice about it, because you can bet they wouldn’t allow you that unless they had to.

      Will they be reducing the price if the RPI lowers? Yes i know stupid question, pigs fly also.

    The reason many companies charge more if you’re out of contract is to encourage you to enter into a new one, you’re trading price for flexibility and vice versa.

      Perhaps, but BT is playing a bit of a dangerous game there. It seems like it is complacent in that it relies on its customer base, many of whom are elderly and don’t know any better, to just stay with them and pay dumbly.

      They’re adding in these extras like Google Home and a reward card as sweeteners to distract from the sting at the end if you don’t get off your bum and take action. This model has already been deemed exploitative by industry bodies because it preys on the lesser informed and is immoral. You shouldn’t rip off your customers on the basis they don’t know any better, and you shouldn’t have to be savvy to avoid being exploited. Savvy to get the absolute best deals? Sure. But not to avoid being gouged.

      Er once the price goes up if you are with BT thats what you have to pay, there is no entering a new contract with them unless you take a new/different product. (IE say you move from an ADSL to a FTTC product or you upgrade your FTTC package 50Mb to 70Mb or whatever they state for speeds on them now).

      Being a customer on a product and once your contract period is up… Re-contracting to get a cheaper price on the same product is not an option.

      The low prices for xx months are for NEW CUSTOMERS only. NOT for existing customers that re-contract on the same product. The news item even makes it clear with its VERY TWO FIRST WORDS.
