Does anybody know of anyway to get a BT installed for free or less than the £125 that they want?

Cheers

its not possible. if you already have a BT phoneline and they dont think you do, they wont charge you. otherwise, you're stuffed.

Ring 150 and ask them to check for a stopped or ceased line in your premises.

If your address isnt a typical house number, street name , town (ie 23 smith street anytown) have a think about any other ways your premises could be listed as often "difficult" addresses are charged as a new provide when its maybe a case of the original address being input differently to what you think it is, address in flats (eg flat 2a 13 smith street anytown may be listed as flat 2 13 smith street anytown), sub addresses and industrial estates etc often cause problems too

Check first if you can see any BT branded sockets in the house, if you have some and its not a new build the chance if there will be a stopped or ceased line.

If there is a stopped line it can be restarted in your name for free

If its a ceased line it depends whether the line plant has been removed whether you will get charged or not.

If its a new house, you have to pay I'm afraid. The slight alternative is you can add it to your bill, set up a direct debit and pay it over the next 24 months, just make sure when they write to you to increase your monthly usage direct debit amount you phone them back and tell them to return it to the stated amount.

This is correct, I work for them, and there is no way round the installation fee on a new line, but you can add it to your bill, as stated above.
As for if there has been a line in there before, it will depend on how long ago, as in busy areas external plant can be used to provide lines elsewhere, but if you have BT sockets in the house, it's worth a call

Look at a provide from someone else other than BT retail, other suppliers (not many though). Can arrange a full install for less than the £125 retail charge, Bulldog used to do a install for £1 they don't do it no more thou.
