BT has hit back at TalkTalk's claims that its Opal business broadband service costs up to 58 per cent cheaper than its own offering.
A BT spokesman explained that the number of extra services made available to customers of BT's rival Business Total Broadband Option 3.
TalkTalk had claimed that its service costs up to 58 per cent cheaper, but BT says that this isn't a fair comparison.
According to the BT representative, who was speaking to Computer Weekly: "The claims of Opal are over inflated and fail to compare like with like. Judging by their previous track record and claims in the consumer market, this announcement needs to be treated cautiously."
BT has also slashed the price of the Business Total Broadband Option 3 package to £30 from £40.50 in the wake of the Opal announcement.
