offcom reduces price of phone and broadband

Apparently offcom are going to ask? BT to reduce the prices of phone and broadband to all customers. Including the companies that use the BT network. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-16905703
Will Plusnet be among the companies to benefit?Huh

Re: offcom reduces price of phone and broadband

Great start to the article with the very first sentence being factually incorrect Wink
Whilst I'm not disputing the facts raised in the article, I'm not sure where the BBC are getting their £14.70 to use a broadband line per year from.
I think that what of the key points is that whilst a drop in price would of course be nice (although we're talking 50p a month), what would be the negative aspect?

The BBC got the prices from Openreach http://www.openreach.co.uk/orpg/home/products/pricing/loadProductPrices.do?data=%2Bs55xT91%2FPruY0Px... The £14.70 is for shared MPF and the £91.50 for full MPF

Re: offcom reduces price of phone and broadband

What am I missing? Are we really expected to get excited by a reduction of a few pence per month? We could save more more money per person just by axing OFCOM.

Yes but the reality is it'll just get spent elsewhere. You won't actually see your money back.
