BT goes DD

  -pops- 08:12 12 Aug 03

Had a letter from BT this morning announcing that they now accept Direct Debit payments for their Openworld Broadband service.

Useful for those who don't have/don't wish to use a credit card.


When I signed up for the Extended Reach ADSL Trial a few weeks ago I was offered this instead of paying by card each month.

The first Direct Debit came out of my account yesterday.

Does this mean that BT are now entering the 20th Century (yes I do mean 20th)?

Looks like it.

I posted this because there have been several threads in the past asking for ISPs who will accept payment in a form other than credit card. I don't know how many do now but, it used to be quite rare/unknown.

I still pay Tiscali by direct debit although my understanding is that this form of payment is no longer accepted - seems strange as so many other organisations seem to prefer it.

By "no longer accepted" I do, of course, mean for new subscribers.

Does anyone know how you could pay for 12 months in advance instead of monthly. At one time ISP did charge only 11 months for a years service. Pay for 11 and get one free something like Asda
