BT 8mbps statement, how much per month?

BT Wholesale has released details of what it plans to trial product wise during 2005, and also some reductions in ADSL pricing. The relevant BT press release can be found here..

The key points are:

* Plan to start a trial in April 2005, whereby lines capable of 2Mbps now, will be used to deliver whatever speed the line is capable of between 2Mbps and 8Mbps. Product launches should hopefully be in the Autumn of 2005.


What would a realistic price per month be for this? would 2mbp drop to around £10, as the choice between 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8 would surely have to mean really cheap price access to the lower products.

I doubt that level of detail is available yet or not been determined yet.

I also doubt the current products will reduce in price to the levels you are suggesting as they are already just above the wholesale cost (i.e. what BT charge Plusnet) price for the service anyway and making them lower will mean each product would run at a loss.

PlusNet have stated elsewhere when detals are available they will be informing their customers.

This is ADSL2+ which will not work with normal ADSL modems anyhow, so upgrades will be a must.
