New offer from Plusnet just made it one of the cheapest broadband deals in UK

BT-A

Offering an ADSL broadband package at the cost of £18.99 a month, this is already a pretty affordable option. But, Plusnet essentially slashes that price all the way down to just £14.82 thanks to the offer of a £75 reward card. Yes, you can go even cheaper with Onestream but for many, paying a few quid a month extra for a name they recognise is a worthwhile investment. Want something a bit faster from your broadband? When it comes to cheap ADSL broadband, this is one of the best options out there. If you just want the cheapest overall broadband deal, Onestream is your best bet - currently the UK's cheapest option at £13.99 a month. Or for another well known name in internet, TalkTalk has a £17 ADSL offer that could be more up your street. But if you need something a bit faster, a fibre broadband deal perhaps? It starts with monthly costs of £29.99 but then dampens that cost with the offer of a free Google Home Mini - in terms of overall value, its hard to beat this offer but it ends tomorrow at 11.59pm so there isn't long left. For our pick of the most affordable fibre we would offer up Vodafone.

Maharashtra gears up for new kharif season with 2.25-crore BT cotton seed packs

BT-A

Though fears are being expressed about farmers possibly shifting to soyabean and maize as options, the state government has planned for a possible kharif crop of 40-41 lakh hectares. The Cotton Association of India (CAI ) had trimmed the crop estimate for the fibre crop to 321 lakh bales (170 kg each), which is about 7 lakh bales lower than its previous month’s estimate last month. The main reason for reduction in cotton crop during this year is the scarcity of water in some states and the fact that farmers uprooted their cotton plants in about 70-80% area without waiting for the third and fourth pickings. Last year, the appearance of the Pink Bollworm led to a scare but awareness increased among farmers who took measures to curb the menace, officials said. Normally around 1.80-crore packs of seed are required by farmers every year but the department has improved the seed supply position and has ensured that 40-50 lakh additional packs are available to farmers.

ALEX BRUMMER: BT needs to come clean over its £530m Italian black hole without delay

BT-A TSCO

ALEX BRUMMER: BT needs to come clean over its £530m Italian black hole without delay. He could hide behind a wall of secrecy. Or he could handle the allegations of wrongdoing at the time of the 2017 discovery of a £530million black hole in Italy in the transparent manner that Dave Lewis tackled an historic accounting fraud at Tesco. It is also in the public interest that the damning, unpublished 353-page report by the Italian financial police (seen by Reuters) be placed in the public domain. When the loss emerged during the leadership of chief executive Gavin Patterson it was seen as a typical Italian scandal caused by shoddy accounting. Among the ingenious methods allegedly used by BT's Italian executives was the treatment of wages as a capital cost so that they could be written down over time rather than as an immediate expense.

Exclusive - BT’s Italian job had London roots, say investigators

BT-A

MILAN (Reuters) - A criminal investigation into accounting fraud inside British Telecom's Italian unit has uncovered more evidence of what prosecutors say was the involvement of senior executives in artificially inflating the division’s financial performance. "A series of emails between the top financial executives of BT Plc and managers of the (Italian) unit point to the existence of 'insistent' requests by the leadership of the parent company aimed at achieving ambitious economic targets, even using aggressive, anomalous and knowingly wrong accounting practices," Italy’s financial police said in a 353-page report. The report contains emails from Brian More O’Ferrall, currently finance director at BT Wholesale, the company’s business-to-business division, in which he asks colleagues in Italy to find ways of adjusting their accounts to boost profits. Prosecutors are not investigating O’Ferrall because he was not on BT Italy’s board and did not sign off on the division’s accounts in the four years, 2013-2016, under scrutiny, according to a source familiar with the probe.
