Panel welcomes 37% line rental cut for BT's landline-only customers

26 October 2017

Ofcom has announced, following their review, that BT landline only customers will see their monthly bills cut by £7 per month; a saving of £84 a year, for up to one million of BT’s landline-only customers.

The Panel has been concerned with the rising prices for customers who are on landline only contracts, especially as these have not been in line with wholesale costs. We have voiced this concern to Ofcom and are very pleased that they have acted on this and set out proposals to resolve the issue.

We are also pleased that BT agreed to Ofcom’s proposal in full. We anticipate other providers will follow BT’s lead.

More information is available in Ofcom’s news release.
