More ISP's are releasing their pricing it's quite interesting to see where different ISP's are fitting themselves in.

[Last Night] Freeserve released some pricing info £29.99 inc VAT for the Home service, believe it may be a 12 month contract, and it's unclear whether they insist you buy the modem off them @ £199 which appears to include the activation fee.

[11:00] BTopenworld have finally announced a self-install product as well - this pricing has been confirmed by BTopenworld as of 1pm with the official press release. The current £39.99 service will drop to £29.99 from 1st April for both home and business users. The reductions in the Office 20:1 products are £20/month for 500Plus and £10/month on the 1Mbps and 2Mbps products.
It appears the the Plug & Go package (BTO's name for wires-only) will be available from March 5th, with an activation fee of £65, but this is free up until May 31st. Monthly costs £29.99 again with a minimum term of 12 months and an optional one-off equipment charge of £85 ie. an ADSL and two microfilters.
