Martin's email, the Broadband Unbundled service and Cheap Broadband Deals page have an offer for 'Up to 52Mb fibre b'band & line '£14.74/mth' (can't link because I'm new) but the deal does not add up to me.

The deal claims to get you 52Mb fibre for £14.74/month after including all discounts/etc however when I follow the link that does not seem to be the case. The incorrect information is that the deal says that the fibre costs £9/month, but when I follow the link the BT webpage says that it is £27.99/month.

Am I missing something, because this deal is supposed to last until tomorrow I thought?

Thanks for the help!

    It's postcode dependent

    If you are not getting the offer when going through the link then you are unlucky

    It's available to 83% of the UK. It depends on your postcode - you're told if you can get it when applying (or use
  • Ah, that's a shame. I thought I was in the correct postcode because the Broadband Unbundled service showed me the offer. I guess that's why it's in beta, hah.

    Edit: checking the Unbundled service again. It shows that my month fibre cost would be £27.99, but doesn't show the correct total monthly cost using this amount.

  • Oh, I think I'm being a bit stupid. The £27.99 included the line rental... So it is £9 + £18.99.

    Thanks for the help anyway!

    yes, also dont forget that martins tips recommended paying for the line rental upfront, so all you would pay is £9 pm
