BT cuts broadband bills in half for struggling households

on Thu, 15/07/2021 - 3:22pm

BT has launched a £15 a month, broadband and phone “social tariff” for those on benefits or low incomes, allowing qualifying customers to reduce their internet & phone bills.

To get the special tariff, households have to be in receipt of one of the following benefits: universal credit, jobseeker’s allowance, income support, or employment and support allowance, or the guarantee credit element of pension credit.

BT says existing customers who qualify for the deal can switch immediately without any early repayment charges.

Those applying will need their national insurance number and must fill in an online form stating the benefit they receive. Bt says that most approvals take 24 hours.

Those who qualify will get the Home Essentials deal for a year. Those with a low credit score may have to pay a deposit.
