I've been an O2 broadband customer since switching from Sky in 2010. After my 12 months was up in Feb this year, I was offered a reduced rate on any package, and I chose the All Rounder and paid £9.50 per month (or £114 a year).

Was browsing the O2 Broadband website today when I came across this offer. Quickly did the numbers and compared with my existing payments, and I am better off by £39!. Needless to say, I had the customer service agent reset my 12 month contract from this month to avail of the offer.

Here's the small print on how above can be obtained:
- you MUST be an existing O2 Mobile customer for at least 2 years
- For The All Rounder Package - £12.50/month x 12 months = £150. Then subtract 6 months worth (£75), so you only pay £75 for the entire duration of your 12 month contract. And divide that by 12 months it effectively costs you only £6.25/month!
- For The Works Package - £21/month x 12 months = £252. Then subtract 6 months worth (£126), so you only pay £126 for the entire duration of your 12 month contract. And divide that by 12 months it effectively costs you only £10.50/month!

I've been very happy with my connection speed and customer service. Hope this deal benefits others out there.

good luck with the new packages. If you download a lot, you'll be interested to know they do a lot of traffic shaping

I was about to say isn't this package with throttling (as an added bonus)?

If you have a legacy contract you are much better off sticking with it. You absolutely do not want to switch to one of the new named deals - All Rounder, and whatever the other ones are. They introduced monthly download caps as well as throttling your download speed.
#5
most providers do traffic shaping anyway, else the networks will be clogged all the time for most (ordinary) users due to the actions of a few heavy downloaders.

yep, you'd need a phone line. O2 don't do cable internet yet.
#7
Anyone who is thinking of changeing from cable ie Virgin Media will probably get a must slower broadband I know mine would go down from 20mb to 2mb, which is why I wont change.

My O2 BB if free for a year I just pay for for the O2 landline.

The Works Package is not throttled. I download around 250 - 300GB a month with 17mb line and never noticed any throttling.
There is also 7.50 monthly charge for phone line, which is cheaper than BT.

It would be more honest if o2 said that ALL their offers are limited!. "Download as much as you like" is a straight lie. ALL pachages are limited to 20gb, 10gb or 250gb per month, depending which one you have signed up for.

And here is the big news.

When I complained to Ofcom and the Advertising Standard Authority and Trading Standard about o2's misleading advertising, their argument for a rejection of my complaint was "We have received no other complaint about this issue".

If this is true then all I can say is: People deserve to be ripped off if they dont do anything about it. (I am aware that those Authorities could be in cahoots and lying too)

Not to defend O2 here, but most internet service providers have made it clear they have a Fair Usage Policy in place, and the limits they have (commonly around 100GB per month) is more than enough for a good majority of users. Again, it's the mainstream users that get "punished" by these policies that are only being actually abused by a few.

Oh, and at least they DO admit they do traffic shaping (and you can read on the website the why and when), unlike others who hide this info.

O2 offer cheap, fast broadband. It truly is excellent.....until you need to speak to customer services. I've had issues with them not taking the DD on the stated date, resulting in back charges (eventually refunded), and moving home is a complete nightmare - They were supposed to set up my landline 3 weeks ago and still haven't. Countless phone calls to resolve, and still nothing. A lady offered me £70 goodwill gesture, but failed to action this, and it's taken them 2 weeks to listen to the call and establish that I was telling the truth.

I would happily spend £20 extra and use another ISP / landline provider. Dreadful service, hence the price. Do not go with O2.

Cable internet will always be faster due to the medium it carries the signals from source to destination. For people who can be serviced by this and can afford the rates, then yes it's a better experience altogether. This is much mroe evident if you stream videos from the net, or play online games like WoW that are bandwidth hungry.

We've been with O2 for 2 years now. Renewed my contract in Feb to the new All Rounder when I got 6 months free. Since then, we have noticed a large difference in the speed depending on the time of day you are using the internet. At times especially after 4pm, its painfully slow. My HTC phone can load pages quicker using my data allowance than my laptop. When the contract is due for renewal again, I won't be renewing with O2.

I contacted O2 to see if they could offer me a deal on my BB,LL and phone calls they siad they could give me 12 months free on my BB if i had a pay as you go mobile phone and topped up at least £10 every 3 months. but could don nothing with the LL and calls but did say that they are offering new total packages in june which will include all 3 services so i am holding out to see what they are doing.

The point is though that an O2 Legacy contract doesn't do shaping. If you're on an O2 Legacy contract only swap to this if short term savings are more important to you than long term speed.

I'm not knocking the deal, just making existing O2 customers aware that it may not be in their interest to take up this deal (or any other deal out there!).
