BT replace "Light User" & "In Contact Plus" schemes

Bit out of date (august) but just noticed this mentioned in another forum.

http://www.btplc.com/inclusion/phoneservices/services/btbasic/index.htm

Introducing BT Basic
We are committed to making sure that people with low incomes can still afford a phone service with us if they want one.

At BT, we've been working closely with the telecoms regulator, Ofcom, and listening to what consumer organisations think. This is so we can replace our "Light User" and "In Contact Plus" schemes with a new, improved service for people with low incomes.
Couldn't see any mention of if ADSL is allowed or not on BT Basic - it is not on the schemes it is replacing.

Another devious ploy by BT to get more revenue.
BT in their press release state:- We are committed to making sure that people with low incomes can still afford a phone service with us if they want one.
What a load of rubbish, very few low income customers will be eligible to transfer to this new plan.
You need to be in receipt of:-

Income Support.
Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance.
Guaranteed Pension Credit.

Both my son and daughter who live on their own, both on low incomes, make very few calls and use the Light User scheme just in case of emergencies.
Time to ditch BT and get out the mobile !!!

Classic case of "Spin"
