Budget broadband ISP Direct Save Telecom has cut the cost of new line installations to £29.95.
Down from the previous £49.95 cost, Direct Save Telecom says this represents a saving of just over 40 per cent.
This new cost is available to customers taking out an 18 month contract with any of Direct Save’s broadband services. The standard price for a new line installation for rolling no-contract broadband is now £118, compared to BT’s £130 charge.
This follows on from the news that over 3,000 customers has signed up for Direct Save Telecom’s low-cost £1.95/month unlimited broadband deal.
By slashing the price of line installation, Direct Save Telecom is making its service even more affordable to customers who want a basic broadband service but want to save money.
CEO of Direct Save Telecom Stavros Tsolakis has compared his ISP to a budget supermarket, calling on cash-strapped customers to make a saving with him rather than spend money with the big four.
“Spiralling costs are causing all of us to tighten our belts, but for some reason the UK consumer is still wary of changing supplier no matter how much they will save. The commercial success of our £1.95 deal shows that this is slowly changing.
“The smaller independent ISP’s like Direct Save Telecom are now like Aldi. Maybe not as fashionable to shop in, but the quality is still high and the prices are much much lower.”
