Peak gift and reward season over at BT on broadband and mobile
Broadband offers ebb and flow and for those looking to switch and make the most of rewards the next week looks a good time to switch.
BT Consumer has brought back the iTunes or Amazon gift card choices on is SIM only deals with values of £20, £40, £70 and £90 depending on the SIM deal you take, for existing BT broadband customers they start at £5/m for the 500 MB data, 400 minutes of calls and unlimited text SIM through to the 20GB data with unlimited calls and texts for £20/m (those not with BT already pay an extra £5/m). The 20GB package is apparently set to revert to its standard 15GB size after 1st March and all the SIM Only deals carry a 12 month contract.
For those after fixed line broadband, the unlimited packages are actually cheaper than the ones with usage limits and the reward cards are at a peak value of £100 for ADSL2+ services and £150 for the FTTC and FTTP products. So unlimited ADSL2+ is £23.99/m for the 12 month contract period (£9.99 setup fee) and Unlimited Infinity 1 (up to 52 Mbps download, up to 9.5 Mbps upload) is £28.99/m for 12 months and a £59.99 setup fee.
This round of mobile and broadband deals all end on 1st March 2017.
The BT packages are more expensive after the 12 month contract ends (ADSL2+ is £40.99/m and Unlimited Infinity 1 is £47.49/m), but in a market where switching is encouraged the trick is to either switch at the end of the minimum term or agree another fixed contract period in return for a better than standard pricing deal.
