Blueyonder cuts cost of broadband

Strings attached as ever

Blueyonder has cut the cost of its broadband Net access service.

The branded service from Telewest is now available for £25 a month which includes the cost of renting a cable modem - but only as long as punters also subscribe to its other telecoms and TV services which start from £9.60 a month.

The price cut puts blueyonder on a par with a similar deal offered by rival cableco, ntl, which offers a broadband service for £24.99 a month (which also includes the rental of the cable modem). Punters also have to subscribe to other ntl services to get hi-speed Net access at this price.

The broadband ADSL service from BTopenworld starts from £39.99 a month.

Asked whether BTopenwoe would cut the cost of its service a spokesman said: "We think our price is competitive in the market." ®
