    BT Fibre 13th Nov 19 at 9:46 AM
    Hi all,

    Just a small success story, thanks to MSE drilling into me the need to haggle and take on the mighty BT. I did just that! Yesterday my fees for ultra fibre and full HD tv plus sky sports was a whopping £88.76!!! Armed with all fellow MSE fans stories I phoned BT spoke to a fine young man who brought the price down to £55.34 good for me........, but wait didnít Martin advise to proceed to disconnection team?? Ok letís go to disconnections, really nice guy again(well done BT) so off we went with my pricing concerns and hey presto, not only a brilliant £33.99 fixed admittedly for 18 months! But love the service anyway! But a free ultra HD box and plugs to stop the need for the need for cables. Happy days.

    With thanks MSE,
    Nigel

    It's g.fast FTTC, up to 300mbps IIRC.

    It's not particularly widespread at the moment and there's been talk recently of BT abandoning it to have another go at FTTP.

    Superfast are their 40/55/80mb packages and those 150 upwards are all ultrafast regardless of product type fttc/fttp.
