ISPs release new prices in reaction to BT Wholesale price changes
Thursday 03 April 2003 16:34:00 by Andrew Ferguson

It seems service providers are fast off the mark with the calculators. The first announcements of price cuts are coming in. One thing that many have perhaps forgotten, is that the price of the 2Mbps 20:1 service(£38) at a wholesale level is lower than the price of 512kbps 50:1 service(£40) when BT first launched ADSL in the UK.

As we find out new pricing from service providers we will attempt to add it to this list. We may reduce the number of products listed by service providers to key products e.g. Home 500 and Office 2000 products, in an attempt to the list as small as possible.

AOL has taken the stance that on the Home 500 service the price cut, once offset by the increase of cost of the BT Centrals means it is not worth cutting their services price. Remember AOL are providing free activation. The small cut in price of the Home 500 service will highlight whether providers are purely chasing headline prices, or are looking towards the total ownership cost.
