The analysis by Which? magazine found that BT remains the most expensive option for most consumers, with many saving up to 20 per cent by switching to other providers.
When all the companies were compared using a typical quarterly bill, including rental costs and all UK calls, all of BT's rivals were cheaper, even after the widely advertised discount schemes were taken into account. Only people whose call bills were less than pounds 12.69 per quarter got a better deal from BT than the cable companies. Those which came out best were Bell Cablemedia, Cable London, ComCast [Teesside], Ionica and Nynex - consistently a fifth or more cheaper.Reuse content
