Be grateful for some clarification: I've got BTbroadband 500k and I want to upgrade: it seems that BT only offer BTyahoo 1MB? I don't want the Yahoo component; I havn't got it now. Can I upgrade without the frills? I can't seem to find it on their website. Thanks
I changed to BT Broadband from BT dial up some time ago. It was then that I found that they did not provide an email service. I had to set up a web mail address with BT’s Talk 21 service. This cannot be used through Outlook Express, so in order to get a POP3 service I had to open another email address with BT Openworld for which I have to pay an additional £1.50 per month.. BT have recently combined with Yahoo to provide an ISP service similar to that of the old BT Openworld. BT Broadband is a separate company to BT Yahoo Broadband with different pricing policies. BT appear to be trying to get all users of the 512 Broadband service to sign up to BT Yahoo instead of BT Broadband. When the prices were recently reduced, we BT Broadband users were given a choice to change to BT Broadband 1MB at a lower price than the price charged for BT Yahoo Broadband 1 MB.
We no longer have that choice. If we want a 1MB service then we are forced to use BT Yahoo Broadband.
