Go through Quidco to BT.

Until Wed 19 April, BT broadband newbies can get a one-year contract for line rent & up-to-17Mb speed unlimited. The deal's available to 99% of the UK – you're told if you can get it when applying. Here's how it works:

Unlimited broadband and line rent £23.99/mth for 12mths. After, it jumps to £40.99/mth.Weekend calls to UK landlines are included, see BT call costs.
You pay £9.99 set-up costs. Includes activation and p&p for the 'free' router.
Get £100 on a prepaid Mastercard and £50 cashback but you MUST claim them. This makes the deal really hot, but annoyingly BT won't remind you, so diarise to use this Mastercard claim link and this cashback link. Claim up to 3mths after activation - they'll arrive separately and may take up to 45 days.
- Is the price fixed during the contract? Technically no, though BT told us it has no plans to increase it. If it does, you should be able to ditch your contract penalty-free.

- Cost analysis: You pay £297.87 over 1yr before calls. But claim the cashback & use the Mastercard (which is like cash) & it's £147.87, equiv to £12.32/mth. Regular cashback site users may see bigger cashback elsewhere, but often on more expensive deals.

- No line/switching from cable? Installation's £49.99.

- Anything else? You get 100GB of free online storage and you can opt in to BT Sport free for three months. It's £5/mth after on a 12-month contract. If you want to watch on Sky, it's free for three months, £7.50/mth after on a 12-month contract.

17mbps is some slow these days

The offers are never as good as they seem with BT! Highlighted with a shiny offer of let's say £12.99 then once you have weighed up the finer detail over the complexity of the offer it's just not worth it! If it sounds to good to be true this one definitely is! PASS! :(

Slow & when things go wrong they are very slow fixing & not wanting to help! Sky are not much better neither! They just hike the prices up, so all we are left with is Virgin! All 3 major players have awful offshore centres which are rubbish.

I switched away from BT after 12 months of Technical and Billing issues after 45 years of loyalty to them. Endless, repetitive discussions with their Indian call centre, being mislead (possibly lied to) and overcharged. Switched to Plusnet, told them what was wrong with the line, they fixed it and now I have a better service, cheaper price and although the call centre staff have a slight accent :), they get the job done!!!

I wouldn't go back to BT if it were FREE!! All I can hope is BT don't **** UP, PLUSNET anytime soon.

Your loyalty costs you these days. I switch everything every year using TCB or Quidco to decide where. I cancelled my BT when they upped their prices in March joined Nowtv on a monthly contract and have just signed back up with BT with £160 cashback and a £75 mastercard.
I can only get 13Mbps and have found it equal on plusnet, BT, NowTv but talktalk was slower and I cancelled within 14 days with them. We run 2 tvs pc and tablets with usually 3 or 4 streaming at the same time and don't have buffering problems.although we did when the line could only support 3Mbps.

Often up to 17Mb means 2-3MB and up to 36mps means 21Mb.

Select installation date to avoid early termination charges.
Be forced to sign up to the earliest date in T&Cs else you cannot order online (unfair T&Cs).
BT will claim it is a generic message and ignore it.
The next day you will get a 14-day installation date, overriding the selected date.
The date cannot be changed online.
Call and change and risk losing Quidco/TCB.
Totally pathetic!

The irony is that Plusnet is actually BT! I worked for BT I had to leave due to ill health / sanity & your case was not isolated but fairly common, best thing that could have happened was my departure from there , the immoral / illegal malpractices going on there gave me & still continues to give me nightmares, my parents have been with BT 40 years also, it's like giving up on your child when you have been with a company for so long with so much loyalty

I've had BT *up to* 54mbps for 1 year but the wireless is much lower, even speed testing with my phone sat on the infinity box. I've spent all year faffing with channels while my nowtv/Netflix drops out (iplayer is worst of all) It hasn't copped with 4 devices at all. I cant imagine what up to 17mbps would be like for me.
And now I've come to renew they want £23.99 plus £200+ line rental. Even the operator in retentions apologised lol
Bye bye BT

Wouldnt touch them with a bargepole, they start you on a deal like this then just keep upping the cost, mine was supposed to be £25 a month after paying line rental upfront, after 11 months i was paying £51 a month before calls, i have no idea wher the other costs came from as their billing structure was designed to be understood by mathemeticians only. I have paid a fortune to come out of BT and just gave up arguing about it even though one side said i left before my 12 month contract yet i was charged a full months line rental because i left after my 12 month contract, charged for my hub and tv box twice and sent letters demanding the return of the boxes the week after. The left hand does not know what the right hand is doing in BT now, they should sort their internal communication problems out before offering so many different deals that they cannot keepp track of
#13
EVERY supplier is the same in terms of offers! As Nougat said, switch regularly. 95% of the time it's an easy switch, you get the best deal and usually cash back of some sort. Barring Virgin (which has its cons also) the other suppliers primarily use Openreach/wholesale to supply your BB, so the stability and speed of your BB will be exactly the same assuming similar speed purchased. What you're paying for is extras or a higher speed, that's it.
#14
Not complaining (well, I am, obvs), but is this really the best deal for non-fibre at the moment? I don't remember spending anywhere near 140 for the whole year, but maybe due to suppliers now being forced to display prices all-in ie not excluding line rental. Cashback is fine but their links always take you to super-expensive monthly rates like 30/month
#15
Personally, I think if providers aren't prepared to offer existing customers good retention deals then why should you remain loyal to them. Talktalk advised me that they could only offer me their £27 deal for £25 as if I should be grateful. Moved to virgin media paying considerably less but with 100 meg broadband, TV and phone including line rental. OK its for 12 months but if after that no good deal is offered, I'll move.

This issue should be reported to Openreach, it's not a network provider problem.

We can't get it here, unfortunately. We have a really fast fibre connection but when I asked them to change it to fiber they just called me a "stupid American"

If that's the case, which it may well be, why did I never have an issue with talk talk?
And also, how would open reach affect the efficacy of the BT wireless signal? It comes in at 54mbps as tested by a wired laptop then my phone tests the wireless signal, sat on top of the box and it drops to 20mbps at best. BT tell me it's their most up to date box too

That doesn't make any sense the router will be IEEE 802.11 ac and any decent phone over the last 4 years would have the ac standard which is capable of up to 1000 mbit/sec (125 MB/sec) which is easily able to transmit the way slower internet connection of 54Mbps (60 Meg (Mbps) = 7.25 MB/sec)
You say you have changed channels but I would put my money on some kind of interference if it is dropping out completely or a faulty router.
also BT do score higher on the connection figures

Can only assume it's a faulty router then. That would make most sense. I was testing on an s6 and my husbands note 4. I would change channel, the wireless signal would increase for a period before playing up again. I've given up with it now.
To be fair, our house is a signal blackspot for most mobile signals tho. We're with ee using a signal booster box. I'd guess this could also be the issue but talk talk were fine for 8+years.
Either way, I'm searching for a new provider this month because of their rubbish retentions 'offer' X)

Some of us can only get a maximum due to the distance from the exchange ... mine's about 5.2 Mb with ANY provider. With 40 Mb fibre I was getting 13 Mb.

Has the deal changed ?

Link only shows £50 mastercard
#24
Looks like this is just another BT offer scam that they wont let you claim. Placed my order on the 12th April well within the offer period but when attempting to claim the £100 mastercard i'm told i'm not eligible for any offers!

Anyone else had issues claiming?

Pretty sure they changed the offer on the 19th April.
