Right i fully expect this deal to get cold as its BT but please do read on.

Free line installation saving £129.99
If you have recently moved into a new build or into a house which had Virgin then you will need to be reconnected.

Pay for your line rental for 12 months advance at £9.49 a month (£113.88 lump sum) (£170.82 for 18 months this way)

Broadband (10GB usage) and free weekend calls £13.99, 3 months free saving £41.97 works out as £11.66 per month if you minus the 3 months free. 18months X £13.99 - £41.97 / 18months = £11.66 a month.

So far it works out you are paying £9.49 line rental + £11.66 weekend calls and broadband = £21.15

Thats the deal price but further savings can be had through quidco.

Quidco is currently at £100 for new phone line and broadband, if we factor that into the cost £21.15 X 18 = £380.70 - £100 = £280.70 / 18 = £15.59

£21.15 isn't a bad price for line and broadband considering the line installation is free, £15.59 a month for line and broadband and free line installation is amazing.

You also currently get a free £25 John Lewis voucher for ordering.

After your 18 months are up phone and cancel and you will be offered the reduced price of £7.99 for broadband and can still pay £9.49 for line rental.

Please don't vote cold just because its BT, this is a perfect deal if someone has just moved.

You have to pay by direct debit and get your bills through email for the above price.

Also you have to make 2 calls per month, these can be free calls at the weekend or 0800 calls, if you forget they charge you £1.50 for that month.

You get unlimited Wi-Fi mins with BT Fon. Extremely handy, over 1.5 million different hotspots that you can log into and use wifi around the UK and some parts Europe.

10GB isn't the greatest amount but it's more than enough for a couple as long as they don't over do video streaming, if you plan to download then this deal isn't for you.

Only a few areas can get infinity at the moment to be honest. Even if you were near an infinty enabled cabinet you still wouldn't get it with this deal, you'd have to pay about £10 on top.

This looks good but we have unlimited broadband at the moment with tiscali/talktalk, not too happy with broadband as it keeps cutting out but its the cheapest I can find at the moment, does anyone know how I work out how much internet I use (like this deal is limited to 10gb). We have 2 home pc's, 2 laptops and three xbox 360's connected to router most of the time as well as kids have ipod touches (4) how does all this add up. Please help

You need unlimited broadband for that lot. Near enough same as my house we use about 50GB.
#7
Apparently you can get a free upgrade to Infinnity when it becomes available in your area!!
#8
Yes you can get free upgrade to infinity.

However this "
Pay for your line rental for 12 months advance at £9.49 a month (£113.88 lump sum) (£170.82 for 18 months this way) " .... is wrong. You can only pay 12 month in advance, so after 12 months you will then go onto pay the normal monthly cost which is currently £13.29 per month. If you paid line rental in advance again it would tie you into another 12 month contract, so 24 month in total.
#9
You are not tied into a 12 month contract - it's just you've paid up front for the 12 months so you'd lose out if you left.

DAMNOME

LRS will be going up a few £ after 12th Nov, after paying line rental in advance for 12 months twice, you will not be refunded for the 6 months left. technically you are right as its not an actual contract, but you will loose out if you were to leave after 18 months.

Also the £7.99 retention deal is what its at now - and not available to everyone, not nessiceraly (spell?!) what it will be at 18 month down the line.
If you were to cancel after 18months,

- this deal is only available to new customers doing this all at the same time. If you have already taken up free connection at an earlier date you cannot then take up the line rental saver deal.

The £7.99 retention deal has been in place for 2 1/2 years, don't think they are gonna change it. It is in fact available to everyone who is out of contract. Option one broadband. Option 2 retention is 12.99 and option 3 is 15.99

very true, but cant really quote something for 18months down the line when its subject to change. Just making people aware!
suspended#13
Fair enough but retention deals will always be there and can't see them raising the price of it.
#14
I phoned to cancel last month and said i was off to talk talk.
I was given a £36 credit on my BT account if I stayed and then paid the £113.88 so Line rental for next 12 months is 113.88 - 36 = £6.49 per month paid in advance.
The also offered me 12 months broadband for £9.99 pm which I accepted as no other provider near me. so works out as Broadband and Line Rental £16.48 p/m - for 12 months as retention offer

I disagree on your view of BT being the worst telecoms provider.

Did not vote cold but they are the worst telcom service provider out. From personal experience they do not understand the concept of customer service and do not care about their customers. Im not saying the deal is not competitive but from past experience's i'd rather pay more and give my custom to anyone other than BT..... Sorry decent deal but hate their guts.

I've got FTTC here ... it's very unstable, and wildly over contended during peek times. Download speeds vary between 4Mb/s and 36Mb/s. Upload speed is a little more stable normally sitting around 8Mb/s
The BT limit of 10GB per month is an absolute joke, and typical BT
Also note that BT Infinity comes with an 18month minimum contract - another reason I didn't go with that BT

Not sure about them being the worst, but they're certainly close to the top of the premier league scumbags.
A quick look at the ISP rankings shows how "good" they are.

2 calls per month? Can you show me where i can find that on the BT website?
At the moment i go through the arduous process of making 10 (i believe you need to make 10 calls per month) to my local secondary school on the first sunday of each month to maintain this! So 2 calls per month will make it nice and simples.

+1. Totally COLD! 10GB broadband is NOT ENOUGH, downloading a few Linux distros would gobble up the 10GB limit in no time!

There is only ONE reason for going with BT - thats to get a line installed and getting broadband from someone else!

Can you believe they had the cheek to complain that VIrgins 50meg and 100meg services are 'expensive'. Bunch of bloody conmen! And to add insult to injury complain they had to open their lines to other providers! Did you get lots of money and relaxed regulation for doing that?

I would rather pay double to their nearest rival than contend with BT's inadequate and inept customer service. BT even managed to screw up the ombudsman's advice when I put a complaint in (after billing me for services I had never used/ordered) and had to send an apology for administering the ruling incorrectly. Useless. It's a shame really because most of their products are actually very good.

I agree a colleague that works for them has stated they dont need to provide a great service... just the only service... and that they do. BT openreach owns the lines so before you swap providers you need a active phone line and for that you need BT.

Had same problem myself complaint went to ombudsman and BT could not even be bothered to honour the outcome correctly. With you all the way. Would rather spend more for a company capable of customer service.

so is the free line connection on? any proof? how do i get it? is it acvailable to everyone. im pay £18 just for broadband virginmedia, its the best , but not worth £18 they offered me £17 retention deal for broad band with a phone line, and £20 p/m for unlimited landline calls/line rental/broadband.
#33
Not free installation, has been discussed before, read the small print.
#34
Its a great offer, I did it last yeat when I moved into my new house, just sign for a year, so you effectively get the installation for free (should be £125) and then sign up to Sky with skytalk and their broadband, as you need a BT line for this, and then when the years expire, just switch to sky line rental

we received a letter from bt on friday offering broadband and calls for £4.99 a month, and nearly took it up, until I saw the 10gb limit. Woefully inadequate. :~(
#37
lol good luck with customer support after your F--ked.
#38
-20 ON PAGE 1? Never seen that before
#39
Is it compulsory to take the broadband as well? The 10gb limit on the broadband is pants and I would only consider taking it if I can just pay upfront for 12 months for line rental only and use another provider for broadband. I want to leave virgin but i've been baulking at paying the £125 quid connection fee!

hardly surprising when it is run off bt core networks

no one remember the home gateways when adsl came out in 2000

worse latency & pings than a 56k connection
