BT Wholesale has reportedly warned providers across the UK that the cost of cancelling their fibre broadband lines - known as cease charges - is expected to surge from £5.37 to £31.12 plus VAT from September 1st 2015.

According to ISPreview, BT Wholesale met with providers from across the country last Friday to inform them of the changes, stressing that some would see prices reduced in certain areas.

The massive hike to the cost cease charges is expected to affect all broadband providers offering services over the Wholesale Broadband Connect (WBC) and Wholesale Broadband Managed Connect (WBMC) platform to many areas across the UK under Market B.

Market B is the regulatory definition used by Ofcom for the 89.7 per cent of UK premises where there’s judged to be high levels of competition for BT from other providers.

In contrast, Market A mainly covers rural and more remote areas and providers can cease free of charge.
