vs. £70-£90 cashback.... suppose it depends what package you are on... albeit this involves no risk with O2 not paying out mind, but most do just very slowly :)
#2
QUIDCO deal works out better

7.50*9 = 67.5

67.5-70 = -£2.50

so you get paid £2.50 for a years broadband

Is this for new customers only?

Survey out yesterday on yahoo, also had O2 topping the poll for best broadband Provider..

"O2 came out on top in the survey, winning 10 out of 11 categories including best value for money, best customer service, best technical support and best quality of connection.

Some 92% of O2 customers say they were satisfied with the service. It scored 93% in the value-for-money category, the highest score in the survey."

Have you got typical numbers on how long O2 take to pay?
Mine's been validated for ages now but no payment.

BT are c r a p, just switched to talk talk and instead of 500 kb connection now have 1.5 MB which doesn't really make sense!

I use O2 home broadband LLU service which I find is excellent. O2 bought BE. I get 7.8 Mbs down and almost 1.5Mbs up for the princely sum of £11 pcm. No silly traffic management that I've experienced.

LLU unbundled O2 broadband for £7.50 pm via corporate deal.

Best broadband provider I've ever used. Awesome. Plus I've just switch landline to them as they started doing that cheaper than BT last week too. :thumbsup:
#16
So do these six months stack with the o2 offer of the first 3 months free? Meaning 9 months total free for new customers? Or is it just six months total?

Yes sadly.

Must admit with all these offers for new Customers in recent months from O2, I'm tempted to cancel my contract and sign up again ;-)

Been with O2 for over 2years now and still happy with the service, but a few things are coming to light on there forums here.

1) If you get access package it is very oversubscribed and speeds are meant to be really bad for people that use this service and they are also traffic shaping this

2) The unlimited download amount is now changed to a fair usage policy and some people are being rang up by o2 and are now being cut off, if they don't reduce the amount they download each month people who have downloaded less than 70gb a month are being reportedly rang at the moment ( o2 customer service won't give you an amount they expect to drop below if you get the call). also proving hard to get mac code off them although they are legally obliged to send it in 5 days

3) Have set up a Vpn and it is working for me, but people who have received the new recent router firmware upgrade report it stops vpn working and they have to downgrade the router firmware themselves as vpn is not officially supported by o2

As i said at the moment I am still a very happy o2 customer but starting to see some worrying signs with there service from what some people are saying, and remember if you sign up with them you are signing a 12 month contract

Exactly what I did in Jan cashback and offer resulted in £25 profit contractually, i'll probably do it again next Feb.
#21
Access = BT Network so O2 have no choice in the matter but to cap/traffic shape etc and I suspect is a small minority of O2BB customer base.

O2 censoring a connection to not allow VPN is worrying, but then considering recently laws net neutrality went out the window a long time ago, are O2 trying to push their business products???

Hi there, do you need to move to another provider first to do this?

I went a week without home broadband, used my mobile data for web/email, but i had other halfs and parents broadband to download in the meantime so was fortunate.

uploaded a pic of the offer from the e-paper if any one wants it

Very interesting idea, but not sure i could manage on mobile data even for a week, worth thinking about tho

Not exactly as it depends if you are an O2 LLU customer or not as LLU implies that you're using O2's network not BT's and therefore any traffic shaping/cap would be done by O2 themselves.

Plus its not O2 stopping the VPN connections its a problem as mentioned earlier in the thread with the firmware of some of the routers which can be resolved by changing the firmware

No brainer if you have Be/O2 LLU at your exchange.

Regarding Access, it's a O2 Product on BT Wholesale network, thus strangled in terms of bandwidth/cost ratio so O2 have no choice but to traffic shape/tell people off who hammer an Access product.
O2/Be LLU = your telephone line is connected direct to Be/O2 Equipment which goes via a 100% controlled O2 network (albeit managed by BT but without their interference) and eventually to the internet WITHOUT BT Wholesale and their bandwidth limits on their BT Wholesale pipes/products.

So anyone with access to Be/O2 at their exchange [url]www.samknows.com[/url] or [url]www.o2.co.uk/broadband[/url] will tell you, total and utter no brainer to get O2 especially if you have a PAYG or Contract mobile with them.
#29
I am a o2 PAYG customer. Would I get the discount or would you need to be a pay monthly customer.
#30
I've been with O2 for 12 months and they are the first broadband supplier i've been happy with. I've always had good speeds at peak times and full speed off peak. They do restrict the bandwidth during certain hours but they dont cripple your internet use like BT, Eclipse and particularly Plusnet have with me in the past.

I've got my an O2 iPhone aswell so get discount but i also had the same discount on my simplicity rolling 30 day contract.

My contract has literally ended today and i got an email from O2 offering me 3 months free if i stay with them for another 12 months. No other ISP ever offered me anything when the contract ran out but then i have moved every year until now!

You can use your PAYG sim provided it's active and that you continue to top-up regularly. It states this somewhere on their support page.

Been with Hotmail since the early 1990's.... along with varying other address's and a dozen isps before O2.

Suspect if you dug around though you wouldn;t lose your O2 log in after leaving them and could associate your new broadband with it again without much trouble upon ordering it again

Never a good idea to use your ISP's email service as a main e-mail address.

Is O2 broadband throttled at all? I've been with Be for about 3 years, signed up with them because I read they have reliable speeds and no throttling, but to be honest until now I hadn't realised it had been so long since I considered which broadband provider to be with.

2.5years ago I moved from Be to O2 Broadband LLU (non-access) I have seen occasional congestion in the evenings, but it's occasional and suspect take up is higher in London, if you have O2 LLU at your exchange and have O2 PAYG or PAYM mobile O2BB is a no brainer every other product looks insanely expensive and restricted [/fanboy]

I just phoned up & quoted metro deal & stated "oh! mean one with 3 months free broadband?" I said no the one in Metro states 6 Months free broadband ..... he said oh they must be running another offer?? but, didn't argue with me.

£7.50 is price for OT Customers (ie if you have contract or pay as you go phone ,,,, but only have to top up only £10 every 3 months)

Vying for landline business as well stated cd do deal for £17.00 (evenings from 6pm/weekends call free to mobiles & landlines)

Now, need to get MAC number asap, sounds good to me : D
#40
Just called O2 and went to disconnections and told them i saw this deal in Metro. They said no problem and done without any issues. I was an existing customer and i renewed my contract on Monday but have now changed the deal under the 14 days to change your mind terms :):)
