BT full fibre 910 Mbps launches for £59.99 a month
The retail pricing of the BT Consumer Full Fibre 500 and Full Fibre 900 services are now known and are cheaper than was expected.
- Full Fibre 500 with 500 Mbps down and 73 Mbps upload speeds is £49.99/m with £9.99 setup fee. Standard price £57.99/m. Stay fast guarantee of 250 Mbps.
- Full Fibre 900 with 910 Mbps down and 110 Mbps upload speeds is £59.99/m with £9.99 setup fee. Standard price is £67.99/m. Stay fast guarantee of 455 Mbps.
Both services have a 24 month minimum term contract. This pricing is for new customers, we recommend existing BT customers log into their profile to see if any special offers are available, we suspect but cannot guarantee that the standard pricing is what most existing customers will see, it is possible those in a FTTP area but still on VDSL2 might seen an offer to incentivise them to upgrade.
As these are FTTP based services those upgrading from ADSL/ADSL2+ or VDSL2/G.fast (copper and partial fibre) services will need a home visit by Openreach to install the fibre.
The pricing is lower than expected and is below the list price from BT Wholesale even when you exclude the impact of VAT e.g. FTTP 1000 is £75+VAT. BT Wholesale has likely reached a bulk agreement where if BT Consumer can sell above a certain number of connections it will get a lower price. The pricing of the Full Fibre 500 at the old price point for the Unlimited Fibre 250 service suggests a keeness to get high uptake in the 2.1 to 2.3 million properties where the service is available.
