BT Broadband Upgrading
Feb 7th, 2005, 4:10pm
 
reading here & other places i`ve found out that @ least 5 other broadband providers are upping the limit of there customers @ no extra cost.
Have just phoned BT 2 see if they are going 2 do the same & have been told from mid feb they will be upgrading BT customers.

I`ve had the same letter,don`t like the 15gb per month cap though,it say`s you can purchase more online,wonder how much thats going 2 cost.
Well it looks like i might be swapping my isp,15gb`s a month is no good 2 me.

BT are a bunch of rip off merchants.
 
I have Telewest BB at home....1meg for 25 per month.
I have rented a small shop round the corner from my house, but there was no chance of Telewest serving it, and it already had a BT line it. They are charging silly money for the line, which I need. They say its because its buisness rates....tossers.....and heres the best bit.....I am on dial up in the shop as they wanted 30 +vat per month for a half gig connection......as soon satellite BB is sorted....i'm going to take great pleasure in telling them where to put their effing buisness rates.

I got my letter to today and I thought I would copy & paste mine, because we seem to be getting different mails. Read mine and see if yours are the same as mine.
I have not copied it all just the bit thats matters.
 
Dear Mr ........................  
 
We're always looking for ways to offer BT Yahoo! Broadband customers the best possible service, and that's why we're busy upgrading your line to 2Mb. That's twice your current speed. You will be pleased to know that, as a BT Yahoo! Broadband 1Mb customer, you'll receive this upgrade first. In addition, we're reducing your price for three months, giving you even better value.  
 
You don't have to do a thing
Rest assured, this upgrade is at no extra cost to you and it requires no extra equipment. It will happen sometime between 17th February and 9th March 2005.  
 
Most upgrades will take place automatically - you won't need to do anything and there will be no need for an engineer to visit. On the actual day of the upgrade, you may experience a short loss of service - this should be less than 30 minutes. In the unlikely event that your line cannot support 2Mb, we'll let you know as soon as possible.  
 
Not a penny more
We're reducing the cost of your BT Yahoo! Broadband service by 2.99 a month (from 29.99* down to 27.00*) for three months from February or March - depending on your billing date.
You'll keep your 30GB (gigabyte) monthly usage allowance with your new 2Mb service. 30GB usage is more than enough for the vast majority of customers. For example, you can send and receive about 500 photos and watch 6 hours of video downloaded from the web each week.

Thanks for that Crobin
                                  As ive not got the letter yet but have just rung them and it seem all bt 1mb customers will be upgraded to the new 2mb connection and will keep their 30gb cap which sounds a fair deal to me, not sure about bt yahoo H but cant see why there should be a difference, phone mumber is (0800 800 060).

They are going to be in the sh*t if they are charging different rates to different customers for the same service Shocked
