Is there a schedule when broadband only lines will be made availabilty via BT. I don't use my landline at all (use mobiles only around the home).
I came across more info in this atricle, but nothing about bt offering it to customers.
Any time i click on broadband upgrades under MyBT, it just returns an error message saying "We're unable to show you any personalised offers at the moment. But why not check out our current offers for broadband, BT TV, landlines and BT Sport. Or you can call one of our advisors"
Searching under standard deals, nothing there either. I'm just wondering if BT will be ofering this soon?
Also, could this effectively activate your extension sockets as Ethernet ports ?
How can they offer broadband without a line? Do they just majic it there? You do not pay separately for a landline, the price of broadband includes line rental.
The voice line is thrown in as a freebie. You only pay if you make calls. Having a telephone to hand is a very good diagnostic tool as well.
A cheap £5 handset can potentially save you an £85 call out charge.
It's still in the trial phase with Openreach.
Some people make the assumption that as their total broadband bill is £45 and £15 of that is line rental then SOGEA will cost £30.
The price difference between SOGEA and your current broadband+calls will be almost identical.
There will still technically be line rental, just no calls.
BT may choose not to offer SOGEA as a product at all though.
If anything, probably less stability due to lack of wetting current.
They’ll be very little in price as you’ll still have a line from the Exchange to the NTE, which you’ll have to pay rental for.
Only for ADSL, it will be just the D side from the cab to NTE for VDSL, no E side required.
