BT hopes to lure new customers with ADSL2+ broadband promotions

BT (NYSE: BT) may be upping its voice line rental prices in December, but that's not stopping it from moving to appeal to new broadband customers with two new ADSL promotions, reports ThinkBroadband.

Set to expire on Sept. 8, the telco will offer an Unlimited ADSL2+ service and a $247 Sainbury's gift card on TV bundles.

With the Unlimited ADSL2+ broadband service, customers will pay $13 per month if they are willing to commit to a 1-year contract plus an $132 Sainsbury's gift card. The price jumps to $26 per-month after the 12-month term expires.

TV subscribers that want to get the $247 Sainbury's gift card will have to sign up for a video bundle option and commit to a 12-month contract on ADSL2+ or 18 months on Infinity/TV bundles. Eligible customers can opt for Unlimited ADSL2+ with free Youview box for $21 per month.

In order to take advantage of these deals, subscribers must have a voice line rental via BT Consumer, which today is priced at $26 per month, and will rise to $28 beginning in December.
