BT is ending its three-months free broadband incentive for customers who sign up for its broadband and home phone packages and triple play home phone, TV and broadband deals on May 12th, it has been confirmed, giving interested parties just five days to take advantage of the savings on offer.
The three-months free broadband deal is currently available on all BT broadband bundles that include a home telephony facet but is open only to new customers who order their package online. Among those where the savings apply are the Get Connected, Unlimited and More Talk packages.
Under the terms of the offer, those who sign up for the internet service provider’s Get Connected bundle can expect a broadband connection speed of up to 8Mb, 250 minutes of Wi-Fi use per month and a free BT Home Hub. The telephony facet of the deal, meanwhile, includes unlimited weekend and evening calls. After the initial three-month period is up, customers pay £15.65 per month and £11.25 for landline rental over an 18-month contract.
Alternatively, those who choose the Unlimited package will pay £24.46 per month over 18-months, plus £11.25 for line rental and a one-off charge of £9.99. This also offers a broadband connection of up to 8Mb, a free Home Hub, but adds a free Hub Phone and unlimited Wi-Fi minutes and UK anytime calls.
Meanwhile, if you choose a bundle that includes the BT Vision service as well as broadband and home phone, you can currently receive the BT Vision VBox for free. This deal is running currently concurrently with the three-months free offer, but will expire as a standalone deal on BT Vision bundles on May 28th.
All BT’s deals also feature an option to add mobile broadband to the package for an extra one-off charge of as little as £9.99. This entitles buyers to up to 1GB of usage for each month of their 18-month contract, which would ordinarily cost £180.
BT claims that its mobile broadband customers can receive a connection speed of up to 7.2Mb and will benefit from 3G network coverage in 80 per cent of locations in the UK. The ISP only began offering a mobile broadband product recently, leaving rivals such as Virgin, O2, Orange and T-Mobile to dominate the market.
