Special offer on FTTC Simultaneous Provides in New Year
Openreach who provide the GEA FTTC (Generic Ethernet Access Fibre to the Cabinet) products behind products such as BT Infinity, Sky Fibre and TalkTalk Fibre products (plus many other providers) is set to run a promotion starting 1st January 2013 and ending in June 2013. The promotion covers those who order a new telephone line (or reactivate one that has not been used for more than 90 days) and an FTTC product at the same time.
The activation of the copper telephone line for a WLR (BT Retail, Primus, Plusnet voice service) or MPF (TalkTalk and Sky voice services) will only cost £30. The standard price for a new basic copper line is £50 (down from £88 back in 2009).
What happens at the retail level will depend on the individual wholesale and retail providers, so it is wait until the new year to see what offers and promotions they decide to run.
