    BT axe broadband cessation charge 7th Dec 17 at 8:48 PM
    The £31 charge has recently been under review and the decision taken to axe it will be welcome news for BT customers who are in the process of switching or ceasing their broadband.

    As for other cease charging ISPís who tell their customers who complain that the charge comes from BT, surely under competition rules that must end as well? Otherwise youíll have a situation where BT are charging a rivalís customers for something theyíre not charging their own.

    The cease charge is levied by Openreach. Although they are part of the BT group it isn't the same company as the BT isp. Still rather cynical though unless you have it wrong and it's Openreach dropping the charge.

    Do you have any links to this, something like this would be on a website news section.

    So it's just BT the ISP no longer passing on the Openreach cessation charge.
