So I had been shopping around for a new modem router that was 5ghz and wireless AC, but simply couldn't bring myself to spend £150 on one. I discovered that the BT home hub actually does all of these things and is therefore a huge upgrade over the very basic Sky Hub.

Basically I've found a deal that works out over £20 a month cheaper for the same service as what I have with Sky.

So in order to get it at this price you need to pay for your line rental up front, this represents a pretty big saving in itself of about £30, it may not work out quite so attractive without doing this.

£169.90 Up Front Line Rental (or £16.99 a month)
£10 a month for the Fibre for 12 months.

Then on top of that you get
£84 Cashback at Topcashback.co.uk

a £50 Sainsbury's Voucher

Some Cadburys Chocolate in a stocking.

I paid about £200 up front which included some delivery and connection fees then it will be a further £120 for the following year, with the voucher and cashback (if I take those as a cash value) that works out as just over £15.50p a month. That's a hot deal in my eyes.

The £15.50pm is a bit misleading as you need 1, To pay a lump upfront and 2, you are relying on cashback being paid out 3, the voucher is not cash it must be spent at Sainsburys which limits its use.

If it all pays out great but its a risk with the cashback as you go through uswitch and not directly through BT themselves.

Cold from me

If you use that uSwitch link or indeed the link on here, TCB wouldn't pay.

Also from TCB terms..
Customers moving home and continuing an existing BT contract will not be eligible for cashback.

So if you already have a landline/'Calls' even without BTBroadband, I don't think it will pay cashback, Cashback is more aimed at People moving from Virgin, to BT. Not BT existing customers taking BTBroadband.

Could be wrong, but that's the way I read it, £84 cashback is for someone who doesn't currently use BT.

BTInfinity + 'Calls' , the 'Calls' part is for taking out a BT Line Rental, when you don't have one, i.e Virgin Customers.There is no Cashback Option for just taking 'BTInfinity', where you already have a BT Line.


Anyone looking for a good second hand router, unless you have a laptop with either a Broadcom BCM94352, BCM94360 Dual Band 'AC' Wireless Adapter Card, there is not much point on buying a top of the range Router.

You just need to buy one that uses a Broadcom chipset, which generally connect at higher speeds to the BT Network.
An old 'dirt cheap' Netgear DG834N, would be just as good, which give you 300Mbps Wireless.
There are plenty of second hand routers on ebay, Netgear D6300, or the DGND4000, or the DGND3700 V2 are pretty good.

The D6300 if you have a newish macbook, ie. this Macbook has Broadcom BCM94360 Adapter Card. (D6300 - Around £60-£80)
The DGND4000 or the DGND3700 V2 if you don't. £30-£50 on ebay.

If have a longer line from the exchange the newer ones do seem to sync at slightly higher ADSL2 Speeds.

DON'T DO IT !!!
Looks good on face value but BT cannot be trusted with billing.
They increase your price mid contract & are legally allowed to do so !!
Google BT billing complaints or even better go over to the BT forums, its better to have a good idea on what to expect in the future. ( frustrating India call centre ).
Sadly BT is no longer the honest reputable Company it once was.
Don't buy without checking out all the dirty con tricks that this company play.
PS your classed as a new customer for 3 months so you will be left alone for 3 months before the con tricks begin.

Don't think you can go through topcashback and uswitch at the same time. It is one or the other.

Yeah, I couldnt find the deal on their site either which means its highly unlikely cashback will be paid. Pity.

I've had the cashback tracked as is currently pending, just make sure you use the "get cashback" link to load up another page of the BT website after you have reached the page with the deals on.

I'm with Sky so hopefully the cashback should pay out, even if it doesn't it's still £10 per month cheaper at face value without the vouchers and cashback for me.

Thanks, i've updated the OP

For the cold people, I've still got time to cancel so can anybody get me a better deal than this?

I need a 5ghz dual band 802.11ac router
Fibre broadband
No data caps

as with all these companies you really have to do yr home work 1 company I have been with for over 20yr suddenly decided to give a new contract without informing me had a awful time , then they sent me to do a survey, good I put every score as little as possible, 1 week later they phoned me, I told them take it all out, still I let them convince me they were for me . but alas I still had to phone them yet again, now hopefully it been amended fingers crossed, just waiting for next bill, not all companies do the same tricks but alas I have yet too find 1 that do wot it says on the tin, so please do make sure u signing up too what u want not what they want u to have, as u can end up with lenthy phone calls etc and stuff u never asked for be very carefull

I think they are all as bad as each other now, I've had price hikes out of the blue from Sky, O2 and Virgin. Admittedly only by a small amount, but it's annoying non the less, especially as I don't have any kind of option to change what I pay them mid contract.

It's why I'll only go for rolling or 12 month contract's now on these types of things, it makes it very difficult for you to lose out.

Do you know how far you are from the FTTC Cabinet? Its always a good one to start with.

Virgin is the best.

Ring them up to cancel and they always knock a few quid off your rental to keep you.

I currently pay £21.50 for 50 meg but I know people who pay even less.

I've tested it on multiple occasions and I get that speed every time.

My torrents come down at 6 MB per second.

My router played up once and they came out next day and gave me a New one.

Can't ask for more.

It works out £30 per month. To my eyes it's not a deal. Sorry op, cold.

Can you show me a better deal that meets my requirements?

Don't swap to the homehub 5 if your network runs ok. Mine was great everything shared music /video from network drives even playstaions and tv. Install HH5 half of it doesn't work.
I've had mine in 13 onths and there back again this Monday to still try get a steady connection, that's after 4 hubs.

Everything worked smooth whilst on O2.

My network runs ok, but I'm limited to wireless G speeds, no 5ghz support and only 3 network sockets.

I've got no concerns over the hardware that BT will provide as I'm knowledgable enough to configure it all as I require.

Found the 5ghz channel works great on my BThomehub (mobile jumped from 42meg to 72meg). I had a terrible experience with BT before but eventually came back for the Infinity 2 package. All I can recommend doing is ringing them up. I got a local call center (Belfast for me, yes sales is local support aint) I got a better deal than the website with quidco offerings without worrying about cashback tracing or anything. Not had any issues in 14 months so far with line nor equipment. Was about to go for the Plusnet deal (yes BT owned but UK help) but the offering from call center was better. As you said if you are knowledgeable enough to configure it yourself its great.

You have to live within 100 yards from the FTTC Enabled BT cabinet, have copper, not Aluminium wiring to get 72Mbps. You'd be in the top 1%, let alone the top 10% of BT Connections. Maximum distance from the cabinet is approx <1km as the crow flies, and can be less depending on how your line is routed.

Anyone else having problems with BT Infinity in the past couple of months? So slow and so many drop outs.
