    Why is bt be more expensive than other providers 11th Mar 18 at 6:33 PM
    I do not mind paying a bit more when bt bb offers ends but paying 20 extra is too much? Why is it bt is much more expensive compared to other providers e.g I was paying 5 with sky when the offers end it was 10. Virgin offers is 29.99 and afters 40 these seem reasonable and am quite happy to pay extra. With bt I can only get max 3mb for 42.99 after offers end. I guess it is time for to switch but have always been happy with except for the high bt broadband. Considering plus net for bt sports and virgin for high speed.

    BT has always been the most expensive, possibly because they are the original and still largest telephone supplier. They have a certain captive clientele who will stay with BT almost without regard to the cost.

    You should certainly be able to get another deal with BT when yours finishes.

    I don't know where you got those figures from (unless it was 15 years ago) but 12 months ago Sky's full price for ADSL was 27.40 (that's 10 for broadband & 17.40 for line rental).

    They have had (at least) two price rises since and it's 30 now including the latest raise. Still generally cheaper than BT but certainly not cheap.

    I changed back to BT late last year because SKY was getting too expensive in comparison.
