Stuck on a BT contract... a way out

Can I get out of this contract?
The short answer is yes. On Tuesday, BT stated that if a customer can show that they are "significantly disadvantaged" by the change, then they will be permitted to leave their contract even if it still has months left to run.

We understand that if a customer states they are "unhappy" with the change, then they will be allowed to leave - and they will not be asked for lots of evidence about how they will suffer from the change.

BT is likely to do its best to try to persuade you to stay, perhaps by making a new offer. But if you want to leave, you should be able to.

I am surprised that the regulator ever allowed these 18 month contracts, which are then rolled on for a further 18 months ad infinitum.

They are designed to curtail competition and I thought we were all about opening up the telecoms market.

I am on the Unlimited Anytime Plan and, although a bit more expensive, is actually cheaper for me than the old Evenings and Weekend plan that was replaced.

I`m not 100% certain but I believe they are giving me a further 3 months free which is worth having.

Fore anyone interested the plan consists of:
