Openreach To Cut Minimum Term To 1 Month For FTTC Connections

Just spotted this on ISPReview

http://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2017/07/openreach-cuts-uk-fttc-fibre-broadband-contract-terms-1...

 

I wonder whether Plusnet and other ISPs will pass this on to consumers, considering many seem to think 18 - 24 month contracts are acceptable

As Plusnet currently offer a non-contract option for ADSL this would seem to be a logical addition to their product range.
I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

One would imagine that such a contract would have no free router, no free set up an no free other costs which are spread over the cost of extended contracts.

Many ISPs are now charging activation/setup fees for fibre connections (Plusnet is one of them) + 'router delivery' charges anyway...

I thought Openreach look after the network and infrasructure? Is it not BT Wholesale that ISPs purchase their broadband from?

Our broadband suppliers are BT Wholesale. Their suppliers are Openreach.
