BT Price Rises & Contract Changes

The price checking web site, moneysupermarket.com has flagged that, on 16 September 2018, BT will be raising its prices, for the second time this year.

However, as they’re also changing contract terms at the same time, anyone who is locked into a term contract with BT can cancel without penalty at that point.

So if anyone is not moving to BCB’s service (I mean, it’s only 250-2000x faster than BT’s ‘offering’ around here) because of a BT contract lock-in, September would seem to be the time to make that change. 

Our tariff is £35/month for householders, with no extra costs and no limits, for 1,000Mb/s on both upload and download. BT, and any provider (e.g. Sky) using BT’s 19th century local network, is limited to 0-4Mb/s download (and less that 0.5Mb/s upload) hereabouts, on a good day. If the wind’s blowing the wrong way, that could be zero, for days at a time.

And thanks to our friends at B4RN for spotting this before we did.
