It is a bit like comparing a Lada to a Ford Escort. (I refuse to suggest that BT is any better than that….) Charles Dunstone has had a nice little ramble on about how much more betterer their packages are in comparison to BT.
You may have seen that BT has recently announced some price changes. It’s good to see that they’re finally recognising how expensive they are but TalkTalk is and will always be better value than BT. Reducing BT Together Option 2 to £3.95? Our equivalent deal is free for 3 months and only £3.99 thereafter. Reducing BT Together Option 3 to £9.95 as month? Ours is £8.99 AND you get free broadband included. They’ve also added in some sneaky new charges to make up for any price cuts, which seems very unfair, such as charging per minute billing and a new 3p “set up” charge for all calls to mobiles and day time calls for Option 1 and 2 customers. Sorry BT, but you’ll have to do better than this for your customers if you want to keep them. Onto other things, this week has seen the release of Hayley Sanderson’s enchanting cover of ‘Something in the Air’. Since it featured on our broadband adverts, we’ve been inundated with enquiries and requests for the track. It’s now available for download on iTunes and it will be on sale in shops on the 7th of August. All our proceeds from the song will be donated to our partner charity TreeHouse, the national charity for autism education. Charles
See, Charlie (can I call you Charlie? You know, seeing as your blog is so friendly and transparent…) the trouble is, you may be cheaper, but your service is a pile of fertilizer that’s been sitting under several pigeon nests in the hot sun for the last 3 months. It smells, reeks of an archaic and failing infrastructure bursting under the weight of its founder’s ego. You may be cheaper but Christ almighty, I wish I would have gone to BT. At least the service may actually work.
I feel bad for Hayley Sanderson, her music will always remind people of the time when the red film had dropped over their eyes and for the first time, they’d considered driving to Preston.
