Who's going to pay for Britain's Aunty Beeb to carry on? Broadband users, broadcaster suggests to government


You want it, you pay for the extra equipment. Simple. The rest of us can then spend the BBC tax as we see fit. It is all about choice.

Thumb Down

Radio 4? Tell me is ‘Thought for the day’ still only available to those promoting religion, i.e. no Atheists or Agnostics? Thought so. With the majority of the British public are now religious ‘nones’ the BBC should reflect the country’s diversity. This refusal of the BBC to reflect current British views on religion is reason alone to scrap it. Why should I as an Atheist have to pay money towards people who endanger children, hate women, hate LGBTs and just last Sunday were busily spreading COVID-19 by opening religious places of worship? I can’t wait to see this BBC religion tax go.

In the UK one must buy the BBC

Hate or love the BBC, if you want to watch TV the UK, one must legally subscribe (i.e. buy a licence) to the BBC. The siituation may be bad in the US, but having to legally pay for the BBC in the UK is unacceptable.

BT bets farm on consumers: Announces one network to rule 'em all


Happy plus.net customer

This will be a real shame if plus.net might potentially disappear. I am happy to pay extra for someone at the call centre who knows what the are talking about and doesn’t merely read off a script in a thick Indian accent. I originally was going to sign up with BT but after dealing with their Indian call center staff I would never touch BT’s regular broadband service with a bargepole.

Price really isn’t everything.

Some customers will pay for good service.
