BT slashes consumer prices

Better value bundles ahoy

Build a business case: developing custom apps

BT is cutting prices for some consumer bundles - BT Together Option 2 is falling 28 per cent to £3.95 a month and BT Together Option 3 is down 31 per cent to £9.95 a month.

From 15 August, BT will offer free evening and weekend calls to anyone who signs an 18 month contract. From August, the telco will charge residential customers by the minute.

From the end of the year, all customers can knock 25p off their line rental if they get bills online. From October, BT is cutting the price of non-geographic numbers such as 0845 and 0870. At the same time, BT will reduce different rates for calls from landlines to mobiles from 20 to just three.

Broadband customers can sign up to BT's VoIP service for £4.95 a month - a 29 per cent saving.

The move comes just weeks after Ofcom retail price controls on calls and line rental for BT customers, as of August 1.
