£14.99

http://www.hotukdeals.com/images/gotodeal.gif[/float-right]Switch to AOL Broadband Contract Free & get £45 Quidco cashback !

We'll also give your first month free on our premium package, Broadband Platinum. After your free month you'll be able to choose whether you want to stay on this package or choose one of our other packages: £14.99 for AOL Broadband Silver or £24.99 for AOL Broadband Gold.

Only available to existing broadband subscribers switching from their current broadband supplier to AOL using the Broadband Migration ("MAC") process. New members only.

No 12-month contract for customers who already have an AOL Broadband supported modem. Where customers need a modem, a free wireless router and installation pack will be supplied by AOL (worth over £55), here a 12-month contract applies.

Nice find edi :)

Thanks Ray :thumbsup:

I am definitely going for this in September.

Also, read in another forum that AOL Broadband Silver is offered for just £9.99 after the FREE month.

I read on the site that the service will not work until the aol software is installed - what does this mean?

I have a wireless model router which is supported by aol - do I still need to install aol software? What about my pda which I use to access the web wirelessly - will that need software?

Dave.

Maybe but will you ever be able to get rid of the parasitic monstrosity from your PC that is AOL software? Undoubtedly the worst, the most invasive and the most difficult to clear out of your system EVER!

Yes ! :-D

You are not tied up to any contracts, but still a 30 days notice period may apply.

I think this offer is to lure back customers whom they lost in the last few years. When the whole world was talking about 8meg broadband, AOL was starting with a mere 256 kb under stupid schemes like copper, dooper etc.

Dave, its the usual AOL software they mean. Remember those 1 month free dialup offers that came in a CD which you need to install to get connected :wink:
#9
Id be wary of this guys AOL charge for speed so moving down to their lower packages after 1 month will give you a 1mb or 2mb speed restriction and aol software is a complete pain to get off your pc once you put it on.

As with every broadband supplier you only get what you pay for and BT Wholesale charges every ISP (including BT Retail) the same wholesale price so they all make their money somewhere , if its not speed restrictions or download limits its offshort call centre and astronomical pence per minute rates to ring them.

The LLU suppliers wont invest in exchange deployment until they have enough customers to make them money hence the problems with talk talk , sky and orange
#10
AOL support is number is 0117 919 1100

BUT for BT, the exchange deployment is an issue with every other ISP provider.

So will I be able to use the broadband as normal without installing any AOL rubbish on my PC?

Dave.
#12
Probably not. You will have to install the AOL software. I have tried in the past to configure the dial-up settings without much success.

You can use your standard browser with AOL now and there is no need to install any software whatsoever.

I manage someone's wireless connection plus another none wireless one.. They are on silver and use a netgear adsl wireless router. They use firefox and ie6 and no aol stuff at all. For email they just use aol homepage with firefox. The other uses ie6 and connects with a dlink adsl modem.

So if you go for it just throw any software in a draw and enjoy as you do now.

I'm on AOL.

1) The software uninstalls quite nicely.
2) It's possible to connect to AOL without the software. It's always on with the router and if you have a modem you can set that up too with the corect settings.
3) I never use the AOL software, just for email. This can be done in Outlook Express anyway!!
4) AOL have no usage limits. I've never been contacted regarding fair usage or anything like that either and I use quite a lot of bandwidth.
5) AOL's speed does upgrade every now and again without affecting your cost. Twice within the last 18 months I believe.

Edi's got a number for AOL which is geographical so that's cheaper.

If you're on AOL you can go with AOL talk and get unlimited free calls to UK landlines at anytime. That costs just £7.99 per month and if you go with them then calls to AOL customer service are completely free if you wing the 0870 number because they've included calls to AOL in the tariff!!

I never call any mobiles (use my mobile for that) or premium rate numbers if I can help it ([url]www.saynoto0870.com/search.php[/url]) so I never go over on anything there.

I quite like AOL!!

Although it gets a bad press, its not all that bad. But they do insist on installing a lot of [email protected] on your machine... i really dont understand why.
#16
ive decided im going to be a broadband tart....now i just need to worm my way out of my plusnet contract....its only a 1 month contract, they say, oh but if you're going to leave you can pay us a deferred migration fee....hmm. thanks. plusNOT.
#17
For me it is worth going for this until something better comes along instead of paying £23 to pipex.

As I have one of the supported modems I won't be stuck with another 12 month contract so it will do me until talk talk broadband comes to me area.
#18
[quote=davedixson]For me it is worth going for this until something better comes along instead of paying £23 to pipex.

I have been with pipex a few years now and also paying £23.44 a month. I think I will be calling for my mac tomorrow as its a huge saving. With the 1st month free plus £42.50 cashback from topcashback it only works out at £7.45 for 6 months as its a 1 month contract minimum and not 12 months. Even if i stay a year it will only be £67 for 12 months.

Plus as it is only 30 days notice to migrate again, if a better deal pops up it's easy to switch again.

And to think I paid £125 install and £39.99 a month for a 512kb service with btopenworld a few years back!

Simon.

topcashback arent really top when theyre £2.50 short of quidco's amount !!! why not shop around for cashback like you shopping around for broadband mister waj1234 !

I did mate and just did not like the look of quidco at the time. I use rpoints and topcashback. Topcashback cost nothing to join for starters and no admin charge for life for me which I think quidco is £5. Plus they are same for most cashbacks too. So not £2.50 short really!

I will take another look at quidco though.

I shop around for everything and got the wifes car insurance for 24 quid this year after cashback and my dads car insurance for 52 quid!
#21
Glad I'm not the only one fed up with Pipex sticking one right up my @rse.

I've been with them since they started selling BB and they don't seem to offer any loyalty at all.

I was contacted about 2 months ago by Pipex Homecall, thye offered me 8mb BB and the phone service for £24.98 which is about what I pay for my current 1mb service!! When I said yeah ok I'll take it, it then emerged that actually they weren't setup to offer the deal and had started marketing too early.

After reading this thread I decided to check on the current offers and once again the packages are cheaper. They'll be getting a call very shortly.

£24.99 for uncapped up to 8mb or £27.49 if you take the phone too.

Come on Sky - Get your service running and I'm in!!!
#22
Simon,

You are the one to behold to sort out my Car Ins which is due next month. :-D

Reg Quidco, as far as I am aware, they are the only site passing on 100% of the earnings to you without holding back even a single penny. When they do so, an admin charge is inevitable.

For easymobile, Quidco standard cashback is £8 for a sim purchase. Last month all easymobile-Quidco'rs got around £19 because Quidco received more from easymobile.

For eg. in the case of Pruhealth insurance, I was so excited when Freefivers offered £57.50 cashback. My excitation ran down when I found Quidco offers £115 for the same transaction.

Of course, we love to have your experience shared here. ;-)

Well topcashback is also £115 for pruhealth and £110 for lloyds tsb and many others are identical too. I got my dads fully comp ins with lloydstsb for £162 minus £110 cashback which is amazing. My wifes was tpft with the post offfice at the time they were offering £50 postal orders plus £45 cashback from topcashback which was the same as quidco at the time but without the £5 admin so hence the choice of them. So the cost of her insurance was £119 minus £95 so pretty good and we always change car and home insurance every year.

So can't fault them at the moment though this time it is £2.50 less with aol.

Simon.

Well just got off the phone to Pipex and it's resulted in this email to them -


[SIZE=3][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Times New Roman]I have been a Pipex customer for well over 48 months as well as encouraging my family and friends to join too.[/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE]

[SIZE=3][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Times New Roman]Today I contacted customer services to ask if it was possible to move to the current package that matches my current monthly payment, i.e. I currently pay £24 and the up to 8mb service is £24. I was told that this was be classed as a regrade and attracted a 12 month contract period. How completely ridiculous is that, I have already given you in excess of 48 months loyalty and for what?? I could understand asking for a commitment if I were a new customer and required a line upgrade or a modem from you but I don't, it's merely an administrative action.[/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE]

[SIZE=3][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Times New Roman]Well I'm afraid the current situation is this, I will give you 48 hours to contact me and revise your offer, during that 48 hours I will be looking for an alternative supplier and should you decide that my custom isn't worth keeping then I'll be leaving.[/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE]

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][COLOR=#000000]I look forward to hearing from you.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
#25
I will be calling for my mac code only as I know what they are like. they really do not mind loosing customers.

I have been farly happy with them but they are too slow to act when everyone else is cutting prices. Plus pipex is fine while it works as there customer support is terrible now when once it was very good.

Simon.

AOL currently offers £50 recommend a friend as well.

I really don't want the AOL SW on my machine. I have just phoned them and they tell me that it must be installed first and then you can use outlook or IE.

How have you guy's been doing it? Can I collect email with Outlook rather than Outlook Express?

Can I send and recieve email through AOL for my hosting account? I know Orange/Wanado for instance doesn't like it.

I do not see how or why it needs to be installed at all if using a router as you put your screen name and password in and it connects to aol and then your pc is online and ready to use any software or browser you please. The one I set up has aol software on too as his wife prefers to use it and he likes firefox. It will uninstall though if they decide they do not want it any more.

As for email through hosting, do you mean forwarding mail from your domain to an aol email address? Or any other email address? For instance you can forward mail from a domain to the likes of hotmail or gmail etc aswell as an isp's email.

Simon.
#29
AOL doesn't take over your computer. :roll: You're all talking like taxi drivers, lol. It's quite easy to uninstall. I have AOL on my PC... I never even notice it's there!!
#30
Simon - No I don't mean forwarding, currently I connect via Outlook to my hosting server to collect email directly.

From experiance with a friend on Wannado, when I gave him an email address they won't allow him to connect and recieve from another POP server.

Ah I see. I currently check hotmail and googlemail via outlook 2003 with pipex and to be honest I do not see how it will not work with AOL.

You are paying for a connection and once you are connected any pop servers you put in outlook should work but AOL may block these but not heard of it before.

I think the AOL software can be messed about with, but the sad thing is, no one wants their rubbish system-resource hogging software to start with - why force us to have it on the machine whilst we use decent software? Why not just give us the connection to the Internet and let us just use IE/Firefox/Outlook? Its strange coz they must have to pay for building the rubbish software, totally bizarre!

Just do not install it. then configure your router and use firefox/ie etc.

Using outllok etc is easy and allowed by AOL

I think what annoys most people is that the software is installed as a default. So non-technical savy people end up using the software, and feel trapped then as if they move to another ISP they end up having to learn normal software again. I think thats one of the reasons a big majority of people dislike AOL.
#36
It is only installed as default if it comes on a new pc already installed or you manage to default the cdrom into the cd drive and click install:wink:

Simon.
#37
I think that's what russ meant :) Once it's installed, it installs it's own default gui console/e-mail client/browser, giving the impression that it all has to be used.

My first ISP was CompuServe :| They sent out a massive 1" thick manual, full of terms and conditions, set ups... It can all be very daunting for a first time internet user and you tend to go for what you're told is right for you. At least these days, there many experienced people around to help you out :D
#38
Yes I see what you mean. It does give the impression that it has to be used just the way the customer service at AOL will still tell you the same!

that aside I have not been able to get to hukd for over an hour so not sure if it is pipex which has been slow of late or something else but either way its time for a change.

I have been asked many times which isp to go with and do not recomend AOL but the price difference now is a fair amount for an unlimited account and is fine for most users needs.

I just hop they do put you on £9.99 a month after the free one as it does only say £14.99. So fingers crossed as my mac has been requested from pipex today.

They did not try too hard to keep me either. They offered to regrade me to the maxdsl service but would go up from £23.44 to £24.99 with a new 12 month contract. I declined as I doubt I will get above 2mb anyhow due to line length.

Simon.
#39
No it wasn't Pipex, it was a HotUKDeals problem why you couldn't get in for an hour.

It's difficult choosing a good ISP and not all of them serve all areas. I still find NTL ideal and I'm very pleased with their all round cable services. I guess it depends on where you are in the country for all options to be worthwhile or not and whether they can keep most customers satisfied :)
#40
Let me know how you get on Simon.

I've not had any reply from Pipex yet but as you say, they won't be bothered.

I wonder if you'll get into the we don't want you to leave so we'll cut your costs circle with AOL if you give up after a month?
