Self-installation ADSL package now available from BT.


British telecommunications operator BT has launched a self-installation broadband package.

The DIY ADSL package will require customers to buy their own modem - reportedly priced at around GBP100 - and plug a micro-filter into their phone socket to separate high-speed data traffic from voice data.

According to BT, the package costs GBP5 less per month than standard ADSL and has an installation fee of GBP50 rather than GBP150. In addition, there is no need for a BT engineer to visit the house to set up the service. BT has also stated that subscribers need only give a notice period of one month to cancel their subscription - currently, ADSL users are signed up for a one year contract.
