Free BT upgrade offer - that costs more!

I currently have an ADSL 2+ service from BT, which I accepted as it was offered free on my BT line which is a backup to Virgin Media.

Today I received a letter from BT offering a free upgrade to Superfast Fibre.  This is a personalised offer as the letter quotes my BT account number.

When I go to the link provided www.bt.com/get-free-fibre this states that BT is moving people off the old copper network to fibre and this offer is free.

When I proceed I am told the offer is not available and there is an alternative, and then I am told this will be £2.50 a month more.

It also goes on to say that after 18 months my cost will rise to £52 a month - which is over double current costs.

This sounds like a misleading offer.  The web link the letter referes to clear states no increase in cost.

Anyone from BT able to confirm the details of this so call free offer?

Re: Free BT upgrade offer - that costs more!

can you enter your bt number here and post results  remember delete number  https://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome

the big increase after contract expiry is normal as all your initial discount will have ended.  you can recontract at that time and negotiate a new deal and new discount back to nearer your existing cost - this is normal

you can also try phoning options team and see what they of you 0800800030
