BT has a lowest price that does not look like lowest price
When is a sale not a sale? Some high street stores and chains seem to have had sales that last forever, with one branch somewhere in the UK being the one quoted for comparison.
The BT Fibre Essential service which is usually 40/10 VDSL/FTTC based (full fibre if available) is described as 'Our price has never been lower £27.99 a month, £9.99 P&P'. Unfortunately we recall a lower price and have looked back at the previous affiliate offers for this product and can find it at £24.99/m with £19.99 upfront cost, so while the upfront cost is £10 lower, the effect over the 2 year contract period is a rise of £62.
In better news the G.fast and FTTP products from BT Consumer are now back and taking orders. For existing BT customers who are seeing new customers paying the same price but getting massively higher speeds in the first instance check what offers exist in your online account and if nothing exciting appears it may be worthwhile seeing if a good deal is available over the phone. We should add that retention offers will usually only be offered once your minimum term is over or just before it ends, but some may see a 900 Mbps FTTP service offer as part of a push to drive take-up.
As someone might notice another issue that we've seen a couple of times is that the affiliate link sometimes does not always show all the products by default, i.e. we have visited the page and seen just the ADSL/ADSL2+ product with none of the fibre products. A quick page refresh fixes that.
