Millions of households could get half price off fibre broadband from BT – are you one of them?
BT will offer Brits on Universal Credit and other benefits two types of cheap fibre broadband packages from the end of June.
These households will be offered one of the two deals – a £15 month package or a £20 a month deal.
But you'll only be eligible if you're on Universal Credit, jobseeker's allowance, income support, employment and support allowance.
You can get the offers if you're on the guarantee credit element of pension credit too.
If you choose the £15 a month deal, you'll be given 700 minutes of calls per month and broadband with an average speed of 36Mbps.
In total this will cost you £180 a year – what a bargain!
The lowest priced equivalent deal BT offers is worth £27.99 a month, plus an extra £7 a month for calls – costing £420 a year.
As for the second package, claimants will be able to get an offer worth £20 a month.
This is where you'll get unlimited calls and broadband with an average speed of 67Mbps – working out at £240 a year.
The cheapest alternative deal costs £32.99, as well as £15 a month for unlimited calls – totalling £576 a year for those not on benefits.

Consumer division chief executive Marc Allera said: "BT Home Essentials will be available at half the price of our standard fibre package.
"It will help a potential four million households on low income save on bills and stay connected to vital online services."
It also said around 3 million more people will be able to apply for cheaper broadband under the new scheme.
