Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

BT has announced a string of "innovative" pricing changes for residential customers in the UK. From 1 October all residential customers will be able to make three hours of local weekend calls free each quarter -- a saving £1.80 a quarter. In return, BT has increased the cost of line rental by £1 a quarter which means consumers will save £3.20 a year just with this one initiative alone. But the best is yet to come. On 1 November BT will launch BT Together, an "entirely new all-in-one choice for residential customers". It will cost £11.99 a month including line rental and users will be able to get three hours of local weekend calls month -- or nine hours a quarter. BT has also cut the cost of some of its calls as part of this package. "This is a fantastic step forward," said Bill Cockburn, group MD of BT UK. "With these new easy to remember prices we will be giving even better value for money for millions of customers. "Under BT Together, customers will be able to surf the net for a full hour on weekday evenings or weekends, and still get change from 50p," he said. BT's decision to offer 80p worth of "free" calls every three months will no doubt be described as pitiful by industry watchers campaigning to drive down the cost of Internet access. ®
