BT Broadband in summer promo

Small carrot

BT Broadband - the stripped down, frill-less (or is that "thrill-less") high-speed Net access service from BT Retail - is now a smidge cheaper.

BT Retail has halved the activation charge for the service to £30 as part of a late summer promo.

The catch is that if you want to take up this offer you need to order it before September 20 and get it installed before November 1.

This offer comes even before the full, official launch of the service in the second half of September.

BT Broadband - an ADSL product that costs £27 a month - has so few frills it doesn't even have email.

Anyone hooking up to the product would need to obtain that separately.

Oh, and you're only allowed to download up to around 1Gb of data per day. ®
