Both BT and Telewest are launching cut-price net services designed to tempt more people to broadband, according to BBC. While these services costs about $35 a month, there is an overall bandwidth consumption cap on these services. I think this is a way for the two British companies to lure the non-hard core broadband users to the high speed world. Perhaps once people start using the high speed Internet, they can upgrade. It is a good starter strategy. Another thing which really strikes me is that BT will be pushing 512 Kbps as their basic DSL offering. That’s faster than most of us enslaved to SBC’s DSL offerings of 384 Kbps.
