New Article - ISPs & The BIG FRIACO Discount
By: MarkJ - 25 August, 2003 (9:09 AM)

In order to fill the news gap on this bank holiday Monday we've uploaded our latest article 'ISPs & The BIG FRIACO Discount'. Including feedback from several providers, we look at why Oftel's recent 17% unmetered dialup (FRIACO) price cut, which was forced on to BT, is unlikely to reach consumers.

So what of those providers that do get their ports from BT, how do they feel about the discount? One such ISP, Tiscali, blames BT for not passing on the discounts in the first place: This 17% cut (and backdated portion) has not yet been passed on to Tiscali by BT Wholesale and there is no indication currently that it will be - it's all been a bit of a smokescreen, the money has passed from one part of BT to another, Oftel has been seen to have done its bit and consumers are left with an expectation that their ISP will pass on the saving.
