BB price-war on the way ?

  Technotiger 13:59 12 Apr 2005

Hi all, I read in todays' Sun that uk-online have reduced the price of their BB by £10 down to £9.99, and that as a result BT and others may have to follow suite. It does not give any other details, but I for one, will be watching with interest.

Whats the fine print say though ? 128Kb being passed off as broadband with a 500M download limit ?

Be nice to have my costs reduced though

  Technotiger 14:33 12 Apr 2005

Agreed - but as I said, no other details were given, but keeping my eyes open.

only for those 4.4 million customers that are covered by easynet's local loop unbundled network

so don't think BT will be forced into drastic price cuts just yet (unfortunately)

Well I've just looked at their home page, and it's £9.99, but,on getting to the 'sign up' page it's £19.99!
Perhaps a glitch on their site?

No glitch, its only £9.99 if you're connected to an exchange which has their own form of connection. Not explaining it too well but most exchanges will not have this and will have to be connected via BT therefore it becomes £19.99 rather than £9.99.

Thought there was catch as indicated by TB.
As the web page is still offering 19.99 for 500
as against the news flash
I mailed Support to see in my existing 'Opensurf'
account which is at this price [providing a I pay a year upfront] can be upgraded.

We await their reply.
