As PN are BT's 'budget' brand, who knows? It will be up to BT management.

It’s just a replacement for BT Basic, it’s for those on specific benefits.
That wasn’t available on PN (although there was some confusion around that) and not sure this will be either.

@dvorak Kind of what I thought - but a bit of sneaky 'advertising', aided and abetted by the BBC (well that's where I saw it).

@jab1, can’t remember where I saw it, but seems it’s also VDSL and not ADSL too.

It is for the VDSL service, @dvorak - there is a big 'story' on the BBC News site, which I (unusually) read.
