BT is offering internet users who buy both its telephone and broadband service a free upgrade to the company's fibre broadband service for no extra monthly cost, when fibre becomes available in their area.
The BT Infinity fibre service provides downstream speeds of up to 40Mbps, and upstream speeds of up to 10Mbps. New customers are being offered free line connection for those who take a phone and broadband or phone, broadband and TV bundle.
John Petter, managing director of BT's consumer division, said, "Fibre is the future of broadband and BT is raising the speed and standard for customers nationwide. BT Infinity is head and shoulders above other services when it comes to value. We are the only company offering you an upgrade to fibre for no extra monthly cost."
BT is rolling out fibre broadband to two thirds of UK premises by 2015 and is making significant progress with its rollout, which is one of the fastest deployments in the world with the company making the service available to the equivalent of the population of Singapore
The phone and broadband bundle costs £17.99 a month.
