BT is to offer lower cost fibre broadband to claimants of a number of benefits, beginning in June.
BT’s Home Essentials package will offer 36 megabits per second broadband and 700 minutes of calls for £15 a month, compared to their usual price of £32.99.
Or claimants can opt for 67Mb and unlimited calls for £20 a month.
These rates will only be available to people who receive universal credit, the guarantee credit element of pension credit, jobseeker’s allowance, income support, and employment and support allowance.
The package will be available to existing and new BT customers, although new customers will be credit checked.
There is no minimum contract, so you won’t be tied in to this deal if you want to go elsewhere.
