Made to have Full Fibre Broadband

BT Broadband Package up for renewel.  We've had no problems but seem to be paying a fair bit with TV added (basic) & monthly unlimited landline usage payment (which we need to keep).  On contacting to see what they can do for me, I am informed that to stay on the Fibre Halo 3 I would have to pay £3 per month more.  No extra charge to get super full fibre, which needs a box installed/new modem etc etc. which sounds good, but why do we have to get herded into what we actually don't require?  We don't game or do very much other than browse the internet, shop on line etc so don't need high speeds.  Is this now a thing? Superfast or nothing?

    Everyone will have to go onto fibre eventually, those century old copper wires won't last for ever and no one will replace them.
    Tall, dark & handsome. Well two out of three ain't bad.

    Mmmmmm, true. 
    Maybe I just go for it then. Paying £59.00 per month with TV & Landline anytime calls. No other extras. Is that reasonable?
