Look like BT are increasing  prices very shortly: http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/c/761/a_id/56087/

In my view am sure PN will not be far behind, only time will tell.

Just goes to show, there's no such thing as a 'free' upgrade. Yes, I'm on about the upgrade in speeds from 38/2 to 38/10. That, and the fact it's getting towards christmas (again).

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Of course BT are doing this out of the goodness of their own heart and respect for customers. Wink

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Does this mean that I'm getting a big price cut because I pay BT for my phoneline but subscribe with Plusnet for my broadband?

 No

We had wondered what would happen to those people who have BT line rental but broadband via another provider and the Ofcom news is pretty clear today that the price cut does not apply to you. What will happen though is that BT is meant to help those customers take advantage of bundles to lower their overall price paid out for fixed line broadband and phone. While moving to a bundle is cheaper for some there are combinations particularly for home workers where you cannot get the same services in a bundle currently. Our guess then is that the result is that those paying BT line rental and have broadband with another operator will get more promotional material for BT bundles, we cannot envisage BT Consumer agreeing to the promote bundles from other operators.

I somehow thought that there is no such thing as a free or cheap lunch. Cry
