Possible error
« on: January 21, 2008, 12:22:32 PM »

on page - May 2007

you state:
"At long last BTw make a reduction for port costs and central pipe charges.
Connection fee is reduced to 40, but a nasty cessation charge of 39.66 is brought in for the first time :( "

Then on page

you state:
"Fees associated with a house move:-

40.00 - BT Wholesale disconnection cost on the old property.
39.66 - BT Wholesale new connection cost on the new property."

I know it's only 4p difference but...

Thanks for pointing that out -
but in actual fact the 2 prices were different and afaik the connection fee was 40 and the disconnection fee was 39.66.

There was a bit of an outcry about the disconnection fee and at some point early last year BT temporarily dropped the fee whilst they decided what to do.  I think all was quiet for a several months and I didn't hear much about it.

Ive just checked the up to date charges and BT are quoting
Connection - 34.86 + VAT (40.96 inc)
Disconnection - 4.90 + VAT (5.76 inc)
Operative Date:23-08-2007

Although I notice some ISPs such as Zen + Plusnet are still passing on the connection fee as a straight 40.

Will change the pages with the new(ish) fee :)
