BT Merge Plusnet from 1st April

Will it affect our fibre broadband and mobile change over?

We’re bringing together our BT, EE and Plusnet brands to create the UK’s largest provider of fixed-voice, broadband and mobile services. It’ll take effect from 1 April 2018. And we’ll still do what we’ve always done; connect our customers to information, entertainment, friends and family - both at home and on the move.

BT is the largest provider of consumer fixed-line voice and broadband services in the UK and EE has the UK’s biggest and fastest 4G mobile network. BT Sport is the second largest provider of pay-TV sports channels in the UK and a leader in broadcast technology.

We buy access to fixed-line and broadband infrastructure from Openreach, and EE’s mobile network provides our mobile phone services. Because we know one size rarely fits all, we sell home phone, broadband, TV and mobile to our customers in a variety of packages - from all three brands.

We also sell a whole host of devices, from phones and wi-fi extenders to baby monitors and home cams. And we work closely with our suppliers to make sure our products and business operations are sustainable - from the first link in the supply chain through to our customers.

Want to know more about each brand? Have a look at our websites.

Watch this space I guess. If my 'local' point of contact moves to Mumbai and I need an interpreter then I'm off.

I just hoping PN will leave fibre broadband unchanged and plusnet mobile especially the smart cap set unchanged. If they change everything for fibre and mobile and removed smart cap then PN will lose more customers because of BT greed company.

From this Investor meeting pack https://www.btplc.com/Sharesandperformance/Quarterlyresults/Investormeetingpack.pdf

It looks like they are going to continue with the three distinct brands, so nothing much changes...

Oh dear,

It was never a question of if but a question of when.

I am surprised it took BT that long.

Hope PlusNet and staff will survive.

We'll be down to two ISP's the way things are going - BT and Branson Media (for cable).

What about price? Will that change?..I feel an excuse may be forthcoming for doing so.  Roll eyes

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

I hadn't @jab1

Nice Powerpoint presentation though, although I only just looked at a bit of it.

I just get suspicious about these things.

Edit: Had got the wrong person on this post.
