UK households and businesses may be able to save money when signing up for a super-fast broadband deal in early 2013, it has been reported.

According to, BT Openreach has announced that broadband providers using its up to 80Mb fibre-to-the-cabinet service will be allowed to reduce connection fees between January and the end of June 2013.

Service providers using BT Openreach's wholesale network will be able to charge just £30 for connection, rather than the standard £80 fee.

This offer will apply to all new fibre broadband connections where the subscriber takes out copper-based phone services on the network.

Broadband providers are under no obligation to pass on the connection savings to their customers.

But if they do, the six-month discount could encourage more households to upgrade their broadband services in search of faster upload and download speeds.
