Discounted fibre broadband for people on benefits

BT is to offer fibre broadband at less than half price to people receiving universal credit and other state support in the UK, with more than 4 million households able to apply for the package.

People eligible for the BT Home Essentials package from June will pay £15 a month for speeds of about 36 megabits per second (Mbps) while the company’s equivalent offering for those not on universal credit costs £32.99 a month.

The social tariff is only for those receiving universal credit, the guarantee credit element of pension credit, jobseeker’s allowance, income support, and employment and support allowance.

… Virgin Media also offers existing customers who are on universal credit speeds of about 15 Mbps for £15 a month.
