BTs Summer Broadband Price Cuts
By: MarkJ - 04 August, 2003 (1:17 PM)

BT has today extended a number of broadband ADSL price cuts and added a few new ones. The deals include a free BTBroadband (no frills) or BTOpenworld connection and cheaper ADSL modems:


BT today announced a further range of customer offers to make getting connected to Broadband from BT even easier and cheaper throughout August and September. As well as the one month free broadband rental offer introduced in July, customers will also benefit from:

Free connection on BT Broadband for all orders up until the end of September 2003. This is a saving of 30 on the standard connection charge. This matches BT Openworld's free permanent activation.

A special offer on BT Openworld's broadband modem, which will now cost 50 throughout August and September. This is a saving of 30 on BT Openworld's standard modem price of 80 and now matches BT Broadband's standard modem price.

An additional 10 discount on modem orders if placed online. This is a permanent price change for all new customers signing up with BT Openworld and BT Broadband.

Continued free line activation for all new BT Openworld broadband and BT Broadband accounts.*

This means that start-up costs for both BT Broadband and BT Openworld Home 500 Plug & Go will be only 50 during the months of August and September (40 if order placed online). The offers apply for orders placed before September 30, 2003.

Pierre Danon, chief executive of BT Retail, said: "These offers are designed to demonstrate our commitment to Broadband Britain, as well as helping us hit our target of 5 million broadband connections by 2006. We have also recently announced an alliance with Yahoo! to continue this push, in order to deliver a completely new internet experience to UK consumers."

Customers can charge their service to their BT bill and benefit from a single point of contact for all their telephony and broadband needs. The BT Openworld product is BT's full ISP service, offering advanced e-mail, world class anti-spam and virus filters and access to a wide range of content, including film clips and music channels.
