Free/reduced £125 BT reconnection charge.

I was thinking of moving into the flat my friend has currently but he says he has lived there 4 months and never had the phone line switched on but is soon moving to a big flat so he will get it.

I phoned BT who said as the line has been inactive for 2 years it has been ceased(despite the tenant before my friend having SKY tv and still has extension cable in living room!)

They claimed I would have to either pay or take up the complete tv, broadband and line rental package for £45 a month for 18 months!

This seems harsh!

Don't bother then. Can you get cable?
BT is such a rip off.

Its also not a charity!
I negotiated free connection just with an 18month basic phone line contract, keep trying, they will budge in the end!

But not competitive at ALL.

It's also not going to cost them £125 to reconnect a line is it!

I dont mind a fair charge or even free since I have been with them 4 years and had nothing but problems(overcharged on EVERY bill for 4 years)

Lol. BT isn't a charity. Such an extreme thing to say. It made me giggle. I am sure they give to charity, but traditionally they have taken a lot of my money over the years.

To the poster, I would say try a non-BT contract like Virgin and just wait for the £125 to be waived in one of their deals.
