Post Office Home Phone® offers new BT-compatible line installation for affordable £60. Anyone interested should place their order before 16 Nov otherwise one would have to pay the standard fee which is £112.34 subject to a survey.

I should also mention there is no lengthy contract - 14 days notice - I've been told.

So you could take this deal and then transfer your line to another provider if you wanted to, having only paid £60 for the connection?

I don't see any reason why you could NOT do that.

They may charge you £15 to cover reasonable costs. Wink

See: http://www2.postoffice.co.uk/sites/default/files/Line%20and%20feature%20rentals%20v11.pdf


BT will connect you for £30 even if you dont take Broadband or TV.
 Its a 18 month contract.


"Customers who require a new line will benefit from a £100 discount on the standard line connection charge of £130. Customers who are benefiting from this offer are not eligible for Line Rental Saver and must agree to an 18 month contract (applies to the Unlimited Weekend Plan or the Unlimited Anytime Plan). Minimum call commitment also applies – you must make at least 10 chargeable or inclusive calls per month (30 calls per quarter). You'll need to pay a charge of £5.15 for every month (if you are billed monthly) or £15.45 for every quarter (if you're billed quarterly) in which you don't make these calls, as compensation for not making the minimum number of calls required. These charges are not subject to VAT and will appear in the one-off charges section of your bill."

I'd prefer to take no-frills Post Office offer rather than BT strings attached offer - even for the little extra cost...
