    Hello I registered to let anyone thinking of going with BT fibre be warned PRICES are on the rise yet again. I was bombard with emails asking us to sign a new contract about 3 months ago, Even had letters requesting we contact BT and to keep our fibre to sign a new 18 month contract blar blar blar. NOTHING was said about yet another PRICE SCAM/HIKE but today we had an email from them telling us that another PRICE RISE will be here in Sept 2018


    On 16 September 2018 your monthly price will increase by:

    Broadband and Calls £2.50

    ( BELOW IS THE email we got today) Of course I removed any personal details.. But for those plaining to use BT be WARNED they are after YOUR money again. Can't wait til the end of our contract to leave and go else where.

    Good evening BT CON (like the usr name by the way) I have been checking out BT fibre and they seem to be really desperate because they are offering new customers £100 off 18 month plans. But they charge way more then most for the same bundle. Then if they bump up the price every few months after the 18 month contract it won't take long to get that and more money back.

    Working at your £2.50 price bump it's another £30 a year and think you said they bumped it up twice so around £60 a year more.

    I was on BT Fibre about 3 year ago now and terrible outfit, like you bt con prices was rising it's seems when they felt like it, also forced into a 2 year contract or lose my internet, speeds. Have you noticed you never get the full speed? That's because BT take back some of YOUR bandwidth and SELL it to those on mobiles and roaming data for (back then) something like £4.?? a month. So you pay for your data, they take some back and sell on. Lastly, How many sites have they banned or blocked you getting access to? It must be in the hundreds if not thousands now in 2018.

    And BT cannot work out why there customers are dropping like flies. They also use to bill us, because we NEVER used the phone to make voice calls. Can't think how much about £10. Just for not picking up the phone and making a call and chatting to someone. That's what mobiles are for, Aren't they?

    Bail out soon as you can shop around you will find much better deals at lower cost over BT rip-off costs
