BT Opposes Further SDSL Price Cuts?

Posted: 27th Feb, 2004 By: MarkJ
Yesterday’s Datamonitor report suggested that business broadband prices would have to fall by a third to encourage uptake within smaller firms. Today BT has played down talk of a cut to its SDSL services:

BT is one of several telcos that offer SDSL services in Britain. "As with any product, the price of our SDSL services depends on a number of factors, including the cost of developing the service and delivering it, and the state of the general marketplace," explained a BT spokesman.

BT won't disclose whether the cost of xDSL equipment has fallen by as much as 60 percent over the past year, but pointed out that backhaul connectivity is often the main factor in broadband pricing.

"It's fair to say that the equipment is not the major part of the cost. It's just one factor," the BT spokesman explained.


BT has only just begun to realise the potential of SDSL broadband services, therefore it’s perhaps too early to be expecting dramatic cuts, as we did two years ago with ADSL (not really comparable). More @ ZDNet.
