Free BT line installation

Free BT line installation
Until 30 September, you can get free BT line installation; this is a massive saving as usually it would set you back £122.50. This applies to new lines, reconnections or even having second lines fitted and isn't dependant on already having a master socket.

However, it involves signing up for an 18 month contract, rather than the usual 12, and you'll need to make at least ten calls per month but these can be inclusive calls if you get a BT package. Either way though, the installation cost should dwarf any call costs.

How to get the deal
This isn't available online; to get it you need to ring 0800 800 150, lines are open Monday to Friday 8am to 9pm, Saturday 8am to 8pm, Sunday 9am to 6pm. When you call, ask for the 'New line free connection offer'.

When BT ran a previous similar offer, there were some reports of people having difficulty getting the deal. BT has assured us the call centre is well briefed so there should be no problems this time.

You won't have to pay anything up front, it'll simply appear on your bill as a charge then a credit. If you do try and cancel your agreement before the 18 months is up, you'll have to pay the remainder of the contract.

Slash call costs
You'll automatically get free weekend calls with BT's basic 'Unlimited Weekend Plan', which as the name suggests gives you inclusive weekend calls, without any additional fee. To do this you need to commit to a 18 month contract at the usual line rental cost of £11.25. Do ensure you sign up to paperless billing and pay by direct debit otherwise line rental shoots up to £14. While usually the evening and weekend package is also free, you won't get it with the free line installation offer.


You won't be able to get this offer if you're still in term with any other residential offers.

whats the second line part all about? im already with BT but would love a second socket in another room.. guessing I'll have to pay for the privilege or do some DIY myself! any ideas?
#4
Shouldn't this be in deals and not freebies?

...as you have to sign up to an 18 month contract to get the free installation

Do you actually want another line (which will incur monthly line rental charges) or just another socket? If the latter this deal isn't for you; just buy what you need from clarity.it and fit it yourself.
#6
you wont get it if you already have additional services i.e in a contract.
#7
just what i needed thanks
#8
Had an arguement with B.T. over 20 years ago. The minute cable companies appeared on the scene I switched to them.

I wouldn't have B.T. even if they gave me free calls. :x

Voted hot................it's a good offer for those interested. ;-)
#9
good deal and nice find. thanks
#10
this will o for me, just moved into a house and the previous owners took there phone line and nobody told me!! missed out on the sky offer and we are getting sky, might phone them to see they can offer me a deal before i go to bt.

thanks op.
#11
hate BT

they are ba*tards.

and 50p tax for us is wrong. Is nothing to do with virgin media. diamond cable managed fibre network with private investment - so could BT...
#12
how long has this been going on for?
#13
well didnt realised sky will install lines just going to sign up to sky so might as well go with them for 25.00 installation, quidco are offering £60.00 cashback so that will cover that charge.
#14
Never had or wanted Sky but with a HD service guess I should take a look - can anyone tell me if its possible to get progs off the HD box and on to a Mac? Also how fast is their broadband?

Mostly tempted to go with this and just get Be/O2.
#15
If you do not make at least 10 calls per month, you will get charged a penalty on your bill. Its easy to forget to make these calls
#16
another option is to go through sky , if you are interested in their free sky + box etc .... you only have to pay £ 25 for the bt line and sky will pay the rest ... and only 12 month contract
i got sky+hd box for £50 free line rental for the whole year and free hd for month ,free movies and sport to try for 2 months and £ 50 tesco vouchers tooo .... so very good value for money
#17
This is a great deal, I ordered my line yesterday as I was not prepared to pay the £122 installation.

The only thing I don't like is having to make 10 calls a month but for a free line installation i'm not complaining, I can't deal with the mobile broadband thing anymore!!

Woo hoo broadband here i come!

How did you get this deal ? did you telephone them up (SKY that is). I have just moved into a new flat and was thinking of just getting the basic BT line rental and getting my boradband with O2, but if this deal is for real then I would prefer paying max 60 pm for landline, broadband and HD !!

Could've done with this 2 months ago :(

What if i'll order a new line and it turns out, that I have an active phone line.. would I still have to sign the 18month contract?
I'mo moving to a new flat on friday and still don't know if there's a phone line there and even if there is is it still active..

your best bet is to call up BT and ask them. They would tell you if you need to pay installaton charges or not. I am in the similar situation as you are and I have to pay the installation charges :oops:

My problem is that I can only sign up for 12 months maximum and I don't want to sign up for sky either. Don't know what my options are except paying hefty installation charges.
#23
Was thinking about signing to sky, but to be honest freesat is enough for me and as I pay £21 a month for virgin cable which is crap tbh i didn't want to exced the amount of £21.. so that way i'll have a phone line for £11 plus 8 meg broadband for less than £20 (as I already have O2 phone i'll get a discount when taking O2 brodband.. will probably get 4-5 megs according to O2 website, which is ok for £7 as I rarely get more than 2megs from virgin even tho i have 10 megs)..
But yes, will call them and find out.. At the end of the day, they can't force me to sign 18month contract/charge me/credit my account with £122 if there's an active phone line..
#24
one quick question, what if somebody signs up for this deal and fails to make 10 calls a month?
#25
I have placed an order just now with BT for 18 motnhs contract. The good thing is that if you leave BT during the minimum contract period (18 months), you dont have to pay £11.25 per month for every outstanding month of your contract. All you have to pay is £7.50 per month for every outstanding month which in my case amounts to £45 ( for six months) as compared to £125 which I would have to pay otherwise to get the line installed.

Finally, if somebody signing up for this deal fails to make 10 chargeable calls per month, s/he will be charged £6.80 per month for every month in which the calls are not made.
#26
Is an 0800 number chargeable ie. do they get paid by the receiver? I simply never call from a landline and only want it for broadband.

Between remembering to make 10 calls and putting £10/q on a PAYG SIM I'm bound to forget something.

There is no guarantee you will get DSL or rather a stable DSL on a BT line good luck though.
#28
Just pegging this offer.
#29
I was getting really pissy at the prospect of paying another £122.50 at another brand new place, but after speaking to the lovely Elaine @ BT I just read the first line of the offer out and she advised thats fine and the charge has been waivered.
The 18 month doesnt bother me as im planning on staying here a while now, so bloody chuffed!

Cheers :)

We went for this deal about 4 months ago thinking we did not have a telephone line as it was a new build house,anyway when engineer came to install it was found that we already had a line in the cavity wall which was fitted as standard by the builders, the engineer said he would turn it on at the exchange and any agreement for the install will be cancelled you still have to go into contract as with most Bt services now but dont have to make the 10 calls per month. Hope this helps.
#31
Does anyone know how you woudl be affected if you were to move home after the line was installed?

When I signed up for the free installation I asked that exact question. They said that you just need to phone them with the new house details and they will transfer the line, the contract carries on as normal!
#33
Signed up to sky only two weeks ago and paid for a line installation, sky sent me a letter saying that as we already have sockets in the home they wont send a engineer round. Phoned sky and they want to charge to put a socket in the right place (i didnt want to drag wires around the skirting boards to the two sky boxes. Phoend bt to see if they would install a new socket,. said they would so i've cancelled sky and when BT rung up now saying that they would only install a new socket if i take out a tv package..... complete waste of time and really annoying.

any other offers out there for a free line intallation???
