BT to slash phone only charges

Quote:
BT will slash costs for customers who only have a landline, after a review by regulator Ofcom.
From April 2018, the telecoms company will reduce the price of its monthly line rental by £7, a 37% decrease from the current cost of £18.99.
The reduction will save up to a million households £84 a year, and customers will have their rental costs capped at the rate of inflation.
Ofcom expects three other providers to follow suit.
Nearly two-thirds of BT customers with only a landline are over 65 and more than three-quarters have never switched provider, the regulator said.

Good news for lots of people. Maybe this is why I've recently had lots of offers to upgrade to their internet service too. Just a thought...

We keep getting those offers for a minimal BB connection with a 12Gb monthly limit for an extra £10 a month. Currently we only pay £15 odd a quarter on a low user scheme and that includes caller ID.

Still good news for the many who only have the line to get the BB service.

Re: BT to slash phone only charges

Yes, it's for people like us who just have the phone line. Have BT been offering good deals on upgrades to BB knowing that they were going to have to significantly cut their charges to any remaining phone only customers?

From a moral point of view this is excellent news, I personally know of a few people who will benefit from this.

Putting my BT shareholder hat on, maybe it's not such good news lol.
