The telco giant's offer promises ADSL2+ now with a connection to the super fast BT Infinity fibre service when it's available in the customer's area. The firm is offers free line connection for users taking phone and broadband.

John Petter, managing director of BT’s Consumer division, said: “Fibre is the future of broadband and BT is raising the speed and standard for customers nationwide. BT Infinity is head and shoulders above other services when it comes to value.

"We are the only company offering you an upgrade to fibre for no extra monthly cost and the only company to offer free line installation across all new bundles.”
