  Charges for landline telecoms are disgraceful, basic BB only sits on top of the voice network so should cost little more. The pricing system hasn't been working properly since PM Bliar's forced auction of the top half of our UHF TV band for wireless telecoms. Companies then being expected / required to pay for something available to all for free that the state had no right to be selling. The buyers' lacked sufficient assets to afford 10% of the bent asking price. Socialist market manipulation to blame. Hence now we pay the ongoing burden of debt.

  Many suppliers already offer half price broadband to people on Universal Credit if they were an existing customer. I had to drop broadband as I could no longer justify the costs versus getting a mobile phone. The internet is fast becoming a necessity due to businesses, local and nation government agencies forcing us to go online to register for or order things. With the continued disappearance of high street banks and post offices, managing money is heading online too. I wish it were untrue, but broadband or the mobile equivalent is fast becoming a necessity not a luxury.
