“Included with each package, is BT’s Home Hub 4 router, with smart dual band technology for a wireless signal.

Unlimited Weekend Calls means all calls to UK landlines, plus calls to 0845 and 0870 numbers from midnight Friday to midnight Sunday are included in the deals.

“I would fully encourage our students to check out and avail of these deals and see if they can utilize there benefits.

BT’s student broadband will be available online only at www.bt.com/student .”
