BUSINESS LIFE: BT says new deal will cut call costs.
About nine million BT customers will automatically switch to the company's Together Option 1 package on July 1.
It follows BT's decision to scrap its "standard rate" which carried a monthly line rental of pounds 10.50, or pounds 9.50 for those paying on direct debit, plus a monthly call allowance of pounds 2.15.
The Together Option 1 package costs pounds 1 more a month for line rental but, according to BT, customers will be better off through savings on the cost of calls.
The company adds the new pricing structure will make it easier for customers to compare prices between it and rivals.
Ofcom, the telecommunications regulator, announced an investigation into the new tariffs in March.
It is considering whether the changes constitute an abuse of a dominant position under the Competition Act 1998.
