BT to offer itemised billing for broadband
Consumer broadband bills will be itemised from this summer, offering a
breakdown of not only the amount of time spent online but also the amount of
bandwidth used in individual Web sessions.
As the price war for 512Kbps broadband services escalates, itemised billing
will help ISPs cut their losses by enabling them to put bandwidth caps on
their sub-£20 products and bill for extra capacity.
The bandwidth data will be made available by BT Wholesale from 28 May and
will allow ISPs to provide more transparent pricing models for 'turbo'
bandwidth services. To date, they've had no way of proving how much
bandwidth a customer had used in a month, making it hard to charge premiums
for excessive usage.
'At the moment, customer information is provided to ISPs from our back-end
server, which details the start and end times of individual user sessions,'
said a spokesman at BT Wholesale. 'But the higher functionality launching
this month will offer a breakdown of bytes used in both the upstream and
BT is planning to offer the service in real time, so that ISPs can warn
customers when they're about to exceed their monthly gigabyte limit.
Bandwidth data will be accessible on a per-second basis.
