Fixed Price Contracts

Fixed Price Contracts FAQs

It’s great news. From August 8th 2018 if you take one of our new fixed price contracts you’ll have your broadband and line rental costs fixed, for the length of your contract.

This will apply to Residential and Business customers:

  • Signing up to a new contract
  • Re-contracting
  • Changing product

It’s our guarantee that the cost of your broadband and line rental during the length of your fixed price contract won’t go up.

Before your fixed price contract ends we’ll let you know. We’ll also tell you if your prices are likely to increase and offer you a personal account review, to make sure you’re on the best package to suit you.

No, the fixed price only applies to new contracts (broadband and line rental) from August 8th 2018, taken when signing up, re-contracting, or changing product.

Call plan costs, call charge rates, set up fees, or any other services such as TV, BT Sport app, BT Sport over Sky or any other add-ons, are still subject to price changes while in contract.

Fixed price contracts aren’t available on our Plusnet Mobile products.

Yes. If you take one of our new fixed price contracts you’ll have no price rises on your broadband and line rental costs throughout the length of your contract.

Yes, Line Rental Saver is included as part of fixed price contracts.

You’ll start a new fixed price contract. When your Line Rental Saver ends you’ll start to pay for your line rental at either the monthly price when you started your new fixed price contract, or you can take Line Rental Saver again (also at the price it was when you started your new fixed price contract).

You’ll pay the current monthly price for broadband and line rental, or you can choose to take Line Rental Saver again at the current price.

You’ll either:

  • Be charged for monthly line rental at the price it was when you started your fixed price contract, or
  • Have the opportunity to renew Line Rental Saver at the price it was when you started your fixed price contract

You’ll be subject to any price changes for broadband and line rental since your previous contract started. This applies if you come out of your contract, or re-contract because you’ve changed product or moved house.

If you’re on a fixed price contract you have a few options available to you. This depends how far along you are in your contract.

  • You may be eligible to choose a new package and enter a new fixed price contract at the time of your house move
  • You may be eligible to move your current contract across to your new house and continue paying the current price
  • If you’re nearing the end of your current contract, or you’re out of contract then you’ll either need to start a new fixed price contract, or pay our home move fee

To find out what contract you’re on and what options you have, just Contact Us.

Prices may change depending on where you live. In some places our prices are a bit higher, as it costs us more to provide broadband there. These are called ‘non-low cost areas’. Our guide to our broadband prices around the UK explains more about this.

If you move while on a fixed price contract, you’ll have the following options:

  • Choose a new deal: This would be on a fixed price contract (pricing based on the area you’re moving to – i.e. whether a low cost area, or not)
  • Stay on your current contract: If you’ve more than 6 months left on this. However, you may need to pay extra each month (if you move out of a low cost area)
  • Pay a house move charge and don’t re-contract: If you’ve less than 6 months left on your current contract. However, you may need to pay extra each month (if you move out of a low cost area)
  • End your current contract: Our early termination charges would apply

If you’re on a fixed price contract, you can choose to start a new contract on the current prices for the package that’s available at your new property. If you decide to leave your current contract charges would apply. Our Moving home or office FAQs provide more details. However, if broadband isn’t available at the property you’re moving into we’ll not charge you any fees.

  • If you’re in contract: you may be eligible for a free premises move (a feature of our business contracts). To find out if you are just Contact Us. Should you have already redeemed your free premises move, your options are:

  • If you’re not nearing the end of your existing contract: you’ll have to pay a premises move fee (for details see our Business Charges Schedule). You’ll also stay on your existing contract

  • If you are at the end of your contract: you can choose to re-contract onto a new fixed price contract, instantly redeeming your new free premises move

  • If you’re not in contract (and not eligible for a free premises move): you can re-contract onto a fixed price contract, redeeming your new free premises move, or pay a premises move fee, staying out of contract
