Any chance you could tell us what you were offered... or do you think they know who you are? 😉

Hi we don't have any problems apart from the fact we are on standard broadband with BT and a local rival company KC has just gone live with their FTTH in our village. Got a cancellation fee from BT and its a huge at £288.

 

So will just run Bt alongside KC until the end of the contract, then close it.

 


I am sorry but I don't quite understand that!

 

You say that a rival company is offering FTTH, by which I assume you mean Fibre To The House rather than the more common term FTTP (Fibre To The Premises)... or is it just FTTC (Fibre To The Cabinet).

 

Surely BT (OpenReach) must be involved somewhere in this, and if so I can't understand why they cannot offer you a 'fibre connection' of some sort... or am I missing something somewhere?

Re: ANOTHER above inflation price increase from BT.

I'm nobody! I got infinity 1 for £18 for two years. We don't use the phone line except for free phone calls and pay line rental in advance. So works out cheaper than Sky which I was considering and only £3 more than plusnet so quite happy

What do you mean by that comment? If it is that you think because stuartrogerson is a member of this forum that he will get a better deal than anybody else rest assured that it will have had absolutely no impact on BT. The forum members, no matter what their status on the forum get no "deals" or "preferential" treatment what so ever. They are all just customers like everybody else.

Sounds good, but don't forget about the 2017 and 2018 price rises that will affect all customers! Ha ha. Guess you will be back on the phone next year haggling another new deal, or canceling without penalty. 😄

Kc operate their own network nothing to do with openreach. They deliver FTTH not to a street side cabinet as they say it will future proof the network in years to come.

Re: ANOTHER above inflation price increase from BT.

Interesting though if they offered a discount for 2 years.

In the past as far as I'm aware they have nornally offered discounts that last only 12 months when existing customers re-contract. That matches the nornal 12 month contract minimum term. That's certainly been my experience over the last few years.
