PostOffice Cuts Broadband and Phone Service Prices

Posted: 15th Sep, 2008 By: MarkJ
The PostOffice (Royal Mail) has cut the price of its broadband and home phone (line rental) packages by between £1 and £3 per month. The group, which claims to have racked up an impressive 500,000 customers since the service launched last summer, has also increased some of its voice call charges:

New benefits - Post Office HomePhone® customers will get
* free weekend calls to all UK, US and Canadian mobiles up to 60 minutes, 5ppm thereafter
* free weekend calls to the top 20 international destinations up to 60 minutes, 5ppm thereafter

New monthly package charges
* Broadband Standard £15.95
* Broadband Extra £20.95
* HomePhone with Broadband Standard £19.95
* HomePhone with Broadband Extra £24.95
* Post Office HomePhone® £10.95

New call charges
* connection fee - 6p per call
* daytime UK landline calls – 4p per minute
* evening and weekend UK landline calls over 60 minutes – 4p per minute

The biggest price change award goes to their 'HomePhone with Broadband Standard' package, which has dropped from £22.95 per month to just £19.95. This 'up to' 8MBps package includes line rental + calls, 5GB of monthly usage, free connection, free modem, UK based support, 5 emails with anti-spam/virus protection and 50MB webspace.

Naturally all packages require customers to sign-up with a 12 month contract and the 'Extra' option includes "unlimited" downloads, subject to the usual Fair Usage Policy (FUP). The service is based off BT's white label managed broadband ADSL product and not an unbundled (LLU) platform.
