BT Wholesale to drop SDSL prices

2 Aug 2005

BT Wholesale has announced a 30% price cut for its symmetrical digital subscriber line (SDSL) products. From 1 November, the standard connection charge for BT IPstream and Datastream Symmetric will fall from GBP450 to GBP315, while the annual rental charges for IPstream products will be GBP966, down from GBP1,380. These products are resold to individual firms by retail ISPs, and BT hopes that the lower prices will be passed on to the end user rather than the ISPs using the reduced charges to inflate their own profits.
