My latest BT bill shows broadband and line rental charged at £35.99
after many years of separate line rental and bband charges and
various discount, all of which have now vanished.
They have been nagging me with free infinity activation for
ages so out of interest I had a look at what their so-called
offers are :-
cost type speed limit cloud
35.99 (now) adsl2+ ~20Mb (*) 15GB not sure
29.99 (42.99) adsl2+ ~20Mb none 200GB
34.99 (??) inf ~38Mb 30GB 10GB +£50 activation
36.99 (49.99) inf ~52Mb none 200GB
40.99 (56.49) inf ~76Mb none 1000GB
Figures in backets are presumably what will be charged in 18
months time after contract expiry.
In other words, I could double my monthly allowance, and get
a small speed increase while paying £1 a month less than I pay
now for Option 1 normal broadband. Odd for BT to give anything
Does anyone know any hidden catches ?. I notice that there is no
mention of an 18 month contract for their offer for Infinity
'Lite' as they call it, though they do charge a £50 activation
(*) Although they claim 'up to 17 Mb' I actually get about 20Mb
download where I live.
I don't use WifI, so all the claims about the performance of their
Smart Hub are pointless.
