We (A&A) are putting up the install price of the Office::1 package from £300 to £500 from 1st April. If you want the lower price, order now!
This is mainly down to the cost of setting up two phone lines, with DSL or FTTC, modems, and a FireBrick, but to be honest I think it is just way too low.
The Office::1 package really is a very good alternative to a "leased line" for small/medium (or even large) offices. People should be comparing to "lines" that cost at least £3k to install!
So I am not sure we are really capturing the market as we are a bit too cheap, to be honest. We put a lot of work in to Office::1 as a premium multiple line package with bonding and fallback.
I may be able to lower some ongoing prices, but make 200G the entry level too. This won't affect existing 100GB customers, obviously, but it is an idea. I'll contemplate that.
It is an odd marketing thing - put prices up to get the market that you want. But I think it really applies to this sort of package.
Anyway, it is available at the lower cost for the rest of the month.
I have also tweaked new Home::1 installs - partly in preparation for the wires-only FTTC install and partly because we have been throwing away money on simultaneous FTTC and phone line. It used to be cheaper (same cost as ADSL and phone line) but BT quietly dropped that discounted price from the price list about a year ago and we have been handing out discounts for a while. Not good.
I hope to also be able to lower the included phone line install price when getting "naked DSL" where we do the phone line only for broadband. That may be later this month.
Juggling as ever, and BT pricing is not an easy thing to juggle.
P.S. Sales of Office::1 are not actually dropping, just thought the title would be fun.
