BT customers can try before they buy faster broadband

Written by: Emma Lunn
BT Full Fibre customers can now trial a ‘broadband speed boost’ for one month, before deciding on whether to upgrade their current plan.

New BT Full Fibre customers will be able to trial a faster speed for a month at no extra cost. If customers decide not to upgrade their current plan after the trial, they’ll automatically be switched back to their previous package.

New customers taking BT’s Full Fibre Essential or Full Fibre 1 deal will be bumped up to Full Fibre 100 which is five times faster, while Full Fibre 2 and Full Fibre 100 customers will see their package boosted to Full Fibre 500.

To activate the speed boost, customers can visit the ‘Broadband: Extras’ tab on the site, and upgrade to a new package of their choosing.

BT says Full Fibre is up to 25 times faster than Superfast Fibre and offers a reliable connection even at busy periods.

Sharon Meadows, BT director of propositions, said: “We’re delighted to be introducing the speed boost to new BT Full Fibre customers. With a growing number of connected devices in the home and Brits adopting technology so readily, it’s more important than ever to have the fastest speeds and best reliability on the market.

“We want to give our customers flexibility in the packages they choose, which is why we’re offering a one-month trial of faster packages for no extra cost. It can be hard to imagine what a game changer it is having ultra-fast and reliable connectivity, and this way, BT customers can see the impact of the speed boost for themselves, without having to commit to an upgrade.”

BT Full Fibre packages start at £25.99, and can deliver speeds up to 1,000 Mbps. The plans also offer average upload speeds of up to 110Mbps – perfect for live online gaming, smart security camera monitoring, home working and video calling.
