BT Superfast 2 service now only £29.99/m with £80 BT Reward Card

It is likely that the new low price offer for the BT Superfast 2 service is a reaction to the Ofcom changes coming on 15th February 2020 as much as it is a reflection of competition and changes in wholesale pricing.

The Superfast 2 service is based on the VDSL2 or FTTP 80/20 service and delivers average download speeds of 67 Mbps. The contract length remains at 24 months, the detail and other main price offer changes from BT are:

  • BT Broadband Essential (ADSL2+) £24.99/m with £19.99 upfront cost and £40 BT Reward Card. Standard price £32.99/m
  • BT Superfast Essential (40/10 VDSL2/FTTP) £24.99/m with £19.99 upfront cost. Standard price £32.99/m
  • BT Superfast Fibre 1 (55/10 VDSL2/FTTP) £28.99/m with £9.99 upfront cost and £80 BT Reward Card. Standard price £36.99/m
  • BT Superfast Fibre 2 (80/20 VDSL2/FTTP) £29.99/m with £10 upfront cost and £80 BT Reward Card. Standard price £37.99/m

The reward cards are the usual prepaid MasterCard that you can claim once the service has gone live for those who are new customers to BT.

The ultrafast services don't see any price changes with Ultrafast 1 (160/30 G.fast/FTTP) at £39.99/m but there is a bundle deal where if you add BT Sport raising your monthly cost you get an Xbox bundle worth £449 including Xbox One 1TB console and download coupon for Forza Horizon 4 and the Lego Speed Champions add-on.

As has always been the case at the end of the minimum term if you are happy to re-contract you can avoid paying the standard price. Existing BT customers who are out of contract should start to get notifications highlighting the offers available to them later in February but if reading this and you are a BT customer out of contract it is worth logging into your account to see what deals are available.

I want 24 months contract to be BANNED! BT can be a sneaky price rise with a WARNING to anyone who sign up 24 months contract length.

@adslmax BT let you out of your contract if they raise prices.

@Resonance Not any more. The contract now includes a price rise in line with inflation (CPI) in January each year - as long as they don't do more than that then there is no longer a get out of contract free card for price rises.

I will never use BT again - the BB is a really great product that works very well but my experience was the company was let down by constant mistakes on bill and extremely bad customer service when trying to speak to someone who understands the system to be able to put things right.
I was a BT phone customer for over 40 years
