BT Wholesale Preps Broadband ADSL Price Cuts
By: MarkJ - 13 November, 2006 (8:55 AM)

ADSLGuide has spotted THIS item in the Belfast Telegraph, which suggests that BT's Wholesale division will shortly (this week) announce a cut to the price of ADSL broadband:

BT also said that it will announce cuts to its wholesale prices next week with the reductions due to feed through to its customers, typically smaller internet providers, next year.

The company also revealed that it would launch its new television service BT Vision next month. The company will look to gradually add customers to the service before a full launch around May next year. To bolster its offering BT has signed up Disney to provide content for its video-on-demand service. The deal means BT can sell movies.

Competition from rival suppliers (LLU) and ISP's has been fierce, with BT starting to feel the pinch, hence the cuts.

Presently there is no clear indication of where the reductions could be made, be it IPStream (BT based ADSL) rental, Datastream or any other aspect of the broadband "pipe".

We note that BT is not allowed to reduce the rental on IPStream until 1.5m lines have been unbundled (LLU), which is still a few months away having only just passed the million mark.
