    So my contract with BT is up for BT Broadband (superfast fibre unlimited) anytime calls and line rental!

    Was paying £37 a month now its up to £47 a month. They tried to get me a bundle package including TV but not interested as the freeview channels I have is all I need.

    Haven't renewed my BT contract and thinking of changing to another provider like Vodafone or Post Office!

    Decisions, decisions, BT seems a rip off!!

    I am with BT and the prices are a joke.


    Had a good deal for the first 18 months but now its just too expensive.


    I've just switched to the 'Big Bundle' with Virgin for £29 per months and £25 set-up fee.


    Its less than the best BT price they offered and I get TV included.

    BT are awful, I do my best to try and stay away from them! Plusnet us the closest I'll get - we had to have a new line installed when we moved, I thought bt was my only option so signed up, but wasn't happy with the price or bring stuck with them for 18 months. Found out I could use Plusnet (bt owned but I've always found them considerably better although they wouldn't be my first choice) - got a really sarcastic, horrible guy on bt customer services when I called to cancel.

    Vodafone have always been good to me, or my sister had a really good deal and good service from nowtv.

    £47pm sounds like the normal cost for those out of contract. You need to agree a new contract to get a deal.

    I was paying BT £73 a month, then they wanted more, I had paid advance line rental, and that took the total monthly down to the £73 they were upping it about £3 a month and they never notified me of any increase. I jumped to Plusnet and I ditched the TV part when I switched, and the TV tax, a saving of £300 a year. I also paid advance line rental but they started to put their up, so I switched again after I had 11 months of my advance payment, I will be switching again in about 12 months as the minimum contract period will be up.
    Someone please tell me what money is

    I re-contracted with BT in April at £31.99pm for superfast broadband, which was the price I was paying for the previous contract.

    I started the conversation by telling them I wasn't prepared to pay any more, and that Plusnet, etc had better deals.

    So after five minutes discussion, I left with £31.99pm, a £50 Reward Card, and a free Google Home Speaker.

    How that was on the last price increase August 2018 .
    Asked to cancel contract retentions made me that offer .
    Contract varied Line Rental 12 months BB 18 months

    TV 24 months .
    Prices do depend upon contract time scales .
    Just dropped me £2 pm from TV to resign to 24 months for TV ( was 24 months from May 2019)Thats due to an ongoing change to FTTP .



    NOTE
    Any new BT contract includes a built in price increase March every year with No Ofcom get out .

    I have had Fibre to the premises from BT for a 12 month contract 50mb per sec average 300+ on occasions. Now I want to move from BT, none of the opposition are allowed to operate the FTTP and have to use the old copper cable - top speed 11-13 mb. I thought monopolies were illegal!!!!!!!!! Anyone any advice on this one?
