New customers of EE’s fixed line home broadband and phone (ADSL, FTTC and G.fast) packages may like to know that the ISP has dropped their monthly prices in time for Black Friday, which reduces all of their upfront setup fees to free and knocks a few extra pounds off their previous best monthly rentals.

The UK telecoms regulator, Ofcom, has begun a consultation on the proposed introduction of a new “bulk upgrade process,” which requires an exclusion in Openreach’s (BT) quality of service regulation but would make it more efficient for them to upgrade slower lines to FTTC (VDSL2) based broadband ISP connections.

Strictly speaking UK ISP Plusnet already started their Black Friday discounts last week (here), although they perhaps saw what some of their rivals were doing and have now introduced further reductions on their two FTTC “fibre broadband” and phone plans. As before, these will run until 2nd December.

Energy provider and UK ISP SSE has today become the latest provider to drop their older copper ADSL broadband packages, while at the same time they’ve made their two “unlimited fibre” (FTTC) and phone bundles a little bit cheaper for new customers – just in time for the Black Friday sales event.

ISP Sky Broadband (Comcast) appears to be offering their Anytime UK calls add-on at no extra cost (usually +£10 extra per month) for the first 18 months of service, when new customers take out one of their ADSL (11Mbps), FTTC (59Mbps) or G.fast (145Mbps) based broadband and phone bundles (with or without TV).

Last week saw UK ISP TalkTalk discount the price of their 38Mbps (average peak time speed) “Faster Fibre” FTTC broadband and phone bundle to £21.95 and this week they’ve decided to do exactly the same with their “Superfast Fibre” 67Mbps package, which oddly makes them both the same price for the first 18 months of service.
