BTopenworld – the mass market ISP of BT – is expected to announce later this week whether it will pass on broadband price cuts to its punters.

A spokesman for the ISP said it was looking at today’s announcement by BT Wholesale to slash the cost of wholesale DSL and hoped to comment later in the week.

The ISP is also expected to announce details of a self-install product, which it currently does not support.

BTopenworld – which charges £39.99 for its single users service - currently has around 100,000 users.

Elsewhere, Eclipse Internet has moved quickly, announcing that it will pass on today’s price reductions in full.

In a statement Eclipse said it would reduce its ADSL Connect 500lite service to £26.73 (Inc Vat) – although the price reductions were subject to confirmation from BT and Oftel.

Earlier today Pipex said it would cut the price of its Xtreme Solo Broadband ADSL Internet service to £23.44 (inc VAT).

The announcement of price cuts already raises questions as to whether BT can support a mass up-turn in demand.

A spokeswoman for the company said that it is able to install up to 20,000 new DSL users a day. ®
