BT offers one month free speed boost with its Full Fibre broadband (Fibre to the premises) packages. The customers who opt for the free speed boost will not need to commit to the upgrade and can move back to to their earlier plan after one month.

According to the details revealed BT, the Full Fibre customers can activate the speed boost on BT’s website and find the option in Broadband – Extras. 

The speed boost will enable the Full Fibre 1 (100Mbps) and FTTC (Fibre 1 and Fibre 2) customers get a free upgrade to 500Mbps FTTP plan for a month, saving £20.
