Some good news from BT

  Cymro. 13:30 09 Aug 2007

It seems that BT are reducing their prises for BB. The cheapest (option one) is to come down from £18 a month to £15 a month. The only snag (if you think it a snag) is that you have to sign on for another twelve months.

Tiscali are charging me £20 for line rental and 8Mb BB. BT are not even on the same planet.

They must have powerful transmitters then.

I have criticized BT as much as anyone, but I guess they must be doing something right with the share of the market that they have.

Tiscali are charging me £18 for my connection + phone.I cant call it BB as if it was any slower I'd have no connection.Its supposed to be "upto 8mbs" yet I've only once seen 50kb/s and the rest of my time is spent screaming in frustration @ 0.5kb/s.I have obtained my MAC and am awaiting the invoice from my new provider.

'You pays your money and takes your choice etc.'..I'd rather save £10 a month. I've had Tiscali for 3 years and the speeds are lightening fast.

The only good thing I have had from BT was about 6 months ago. They replaced two telegraph poles close to my house. Both these poles carried phone cables to my house which I didn't want as I don't have any BT phones.

When they replaced the poles they also removed all the cables to my house. Great!!

They've gone bust?

BT owns the infrastructure over which most broadband services are made available.

In any case TalkTalk's International3 broadband, phone and line rental package for £20.50 a month is still way, way ahead of any other ISP in the UK:

not to mention their customer support based in India. I am so glad to get rid of that company and get the 8mb speeds I deserve for the money I pay. I was with them for 3 years and the last year it went down hill.
