RE: BT possibly capping ADSL???

Hi Mark,

There is some slightly twisted logic in these rumours. BT Openworld recently placed monthly restrictions on their unmetered accounts. This was no surprise, as the accounts they were offering up to that point were unsustainable. BT wholesale themselves are also offering "No Frills" ADSL now, which has a bandwidth cap of 1GB per day. BTOpenworld and other sectors of the BT group do not have any special deals and in some cases compete against each other.

IMHO there is little chance of BT adjusting their wholesale prices in the forseeable future for either ADSL or Unmetered ports. At PlusNet we have taken great care to build our accounts in a sustainable fashion, and as such we will be able to continue to offer our products without change (Apart from for the better of course!).
