    BT slashes price of broadband in special summer offer

    BT has cut the cost of signing up to its BT Broadband Basic product by
    a massive £80.

    Customers signing up from May 20 until July 20 2004, will get their
    modem and installation - normally £80 - absolutely free.

    This offer is additional to BT's current broadband offer for consumers
    - a flight to the US or Europe for all new consumer broadband

    These initiatives are part of BT's commitment to offer customers value
    for money services at compelling prices and making Broadband Britain a
    reality. They are expected to play a significant role in driving BT
    Retail customer numbers - ensuring that BT is the clear market leader
    in the retail sector.

    Duncan Ingram, managing director, BT Openworld, said: "This deal
    offers a full speed 512k broadband service for under £20.00 per month
    and once again confirms our commitment to offer our customers the most
    innovative service offerings and deals in the sector, those that
    combine reliability with value.

    "It is these factors which will help ensure we maintain our strong
    position in the market well into the future."

    Ingram added: "As customers become increasingly web-savvy and
    sophisticated in their choices, ISPs must realise that one size most
    definitely does not fit all, and that there is more to broadband than
    just speed.

    "Broadband is also about personalisation, flexibility and choice,
    qualities designed to make the internet work for the individuals and
    businesses alike, not vice versa."
