BT's Black Friday broadband deals have arrived - but can you get better elsewhere?

BT-A

BT's Black Friday broadband deals have arrived - but can you get better elsewhere? One week out from Black Friday and BT has officially gone live with its seasonal sales. So phones, AirPods, SIM only deals with a juicy free gift and, crucially, broadband deals are all included. It's now worth a juicy £120, which you can either consider a handy sum of cash as Christmas approaches or an amount to effectively reduce the monthly payments down to less than £25 a month. And its broadband and TV deals that now throw in half-price BT Sport and 6 months free Amazon Prime Video are also tempting. But before you go ahead and sign up to BT quite yet, just take a moment to consider whether you can get better value elsewhere. Vodafone has been offering cheap broadband to the UK for a while now but now has a free speaker/smart assistant/screen (worth £219) - this is certainly an attractive broadband option. Or if you want faster download speeds (maybe you may live in a busy household or love 4K streaming) for just an extra £4 a month you could get theSuperfast 2 Broadband.View Deal.

BT-A

TechRadar is supported by its audience. When you purchase through links on our site, we may earn an affiliate commission. Yes, BT can't quite compete with Three Mobile's SIMO value (unlimited data for £18/pm anyone!?) but really, who can right now! What BT can do however, is combine three crucial selling factors. BT will slice £5 a month off any tariff for existing broadband customers, meaning you can get a SIM only deal and that free JBL soundbar for as little as £15 a month. Combining lots of data with that tempting free soundbar, this is an excellent all-round offer. If you're an existing BT customer you just have to pay £15 a month, and for new customers it's only £20 - a lot cheaper than we would normally expect for an offer like this.

BT facing ‘strong pressure’ over Richmondshire rural phone boxes - Richmondshire Today

BT-A

Parish councils have spoken of their delight after winning support from an influential committee in a battle with telecommunications giant BT over ‘life-saving phone boxes’ in remote areas. Members of North Yorkshire County Council’s Richmond constituency committee has approved a move to write to the £24bn turnover firm urging it to retain any of the 43 Richmondshire phone boxes which parish councils consider vital for public safety. The meeting heard numerous parish councils in the district had raised strong objections to the BT plans and that residents living in areas where mobile phone coverage was patchy had been left reeling after learning of the proposals. North Yorkshire is poorly served when it comes to mobile phone coverage with only 19 per cent indoor coverage by all four operators and 65 per cent geographic coverage by one of the operators compared to 91 per cent nationally. While there are hopes that the introduction of 5G technology and a deal between operators and the government to share masts will improve the situation, it is believed some areas are still years away from getting reliable mobile coverage. Cllr Peacock had told members of the committee how phone boxes played vital role in alerting emergency services to life and death situations, while Councillor Heather Moorhouse, whose division includes part of the North York Moors, said the public landlines needed maintaining until there was mobile phone coverage across the area.

Barclays and BT distance themselves from Duke of York

BT-A BARC

Barclays and BT have become the latest high-profile firms to distance themselves from the Duke of York, as pressure mounts over the royal role of the Queen’s second son. Barclays had renewed its sponsorship of Pitch@Palace in recent months. But a spokesman for the bank told the PA news agency: “Pitch@Palace as an organisation has made an undeniable impact on supporting entrepreneurs and creating new jobs, which is why we are keen to support the programme. BT called for Andrew to be removed as patron of iDEA – The Duke of York Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award – a programme which helps develop digital enterprise and employability skills. London Metropolitan University is also considering the duke’s role as its patron, while a student panel at Huddersfield University passed a motion to lobby Andrew to resign as its chancellor. Asian-focused bank Standard Chartered joined KPMG in deciding not to renew its sponsorship of the Pitch@Palace scheme. AstraZeneca’s three-year partnership with Pitch@Palace is due to expire at the end of this year and is being reviewed, and Outward Bound Trust, of which Andrew is patron, is to hold a board meeting to discuss the matter.
