what a hoot

I just can't understand what BT is about these days

I'm on TELE2 and call my pal in Spain at 2.5p per minute

I'm on Freenetname for broadband

Both of these are substantially cheaper than BT

I suppose it's all down to inertia, and I can't think 6am to 8am would make much difference to me anyway

But why don't they seek to retain their customers, when you look at the investment in their infrastructure that all these other companies are using?

I just don't understand their business plan

Glad I've just signed up for Nildram Talk, a package available to Nidram Customers. For £4.99 all calls 24/7 are free to any UK landline for up to 2 hours per call. Greatly reduced international calls and calls to mobiles. details are available at

This is one of those subversive price increases. BT could save a fourtune if they stopped sending junk mail and had a basic price tarrif and basic billing, I get a headache every quarter. And do not forget the line rental, paid in advance. (who gets the interest???)

to TalkTalk - excellent so far - will seriously consider migrating to their bb service when my year is up.

Have you spotted the other disguised price increase. A late payment charge if you don't pay within a fixed time (7 days I think) of them sending out the red reminder.

Note it is sending out - not receipt!

If BT start implementing a late payment charge, the they want to make sure that the bills are sent out on time and the Royal Mail deliver on time. Perhaps another way in forcing people to pay by direct debit arrangements.

not like bt to to find another way to get more money from us is it (hmm)while other providers are finding ways to reduce the cost.
