broadband deal is carp. Keep the BT landline and get o2 as broadband = sorted.

I thought BT was O2,

Didn't O2 used to be BT Cellnet ???
#3
The big selling point for me with BT Broadband is BT Vision, it's free (provided you pay for broadband) you get a 160gb freeview recorder, on demand stuff, powerline adapters etc. I wish this would work with other Broadband providers!!!!
#4
o2 belongs to Telefonica Spain.

Yehp, used to be

Then they were mmO2, then they were bought by Spain's telefonica
#6
There's going to be a lot of relevance in the DETAIL between BT and o2 home phone packages - eg it appears NO call setup charges for o2, versus c9p for with BT.

BT's old Cellnet mobile phone bit did indeed get hived off and became o2 and then a subsidiary of the Spanish based global telecomms Telefonica and hence the drive to multiplay with mobile phone, home broadband, mobile broadband and next home phone (then TV?)!

Think you will find that BT Vision will still work without a bradband connection but only as a freeview/ recorder box rather than being able to get films etc on demand.

BT sold it's share in Cellnet a very long time ago. In any case, that was a Mobile Telecoms operation, which is completely separate from it's landline and broadband operation.

O2 broadband is provided by BE, however, in some cases their service is better than BT and certainly a damn lot cheaper. Although they share the same piece of copper wire from the exchange to your house, O2/Be have their own switches (broadband equipment) in the exchange. This means you will quite possible get two completely different levels of service on the same telephone line. For example, I am with PlusNet now (a BT subsidiary) which uses everything BT, from the switches to the cables etc. and the service is appalling. I achieve, if I am lucky 1.2Mbps. On this same line I used to get 4.1Mbps from O2.
#14
I did the same as the OP a few days ago and was also offered a pricematch to the O2 price. I umm'd and err'd a bit (wondering how much Quidco O2 homephone will offer) and they knocked another 50p off (for 1 year only). The line rental will actually remain the same but they will make a one off credit of £30 to my account. Saved me switching so I was happy.

Ours doesn't work, probably because we have no reception in this valley, it's back in it's box. Any ideas how to make it useful to do something? we haven't got any type of recorder at the mo, though have got broadband. Cheers

my talk talk contract ends in april i hate it - what can i do - have i got to go back to bt and get a line then cancel it (£100) cost

Why reward the Lazy companies that dont give a good deal unless you ask. Go to O2!

Bear inmind you need a minimum 2mb connection for it work.(BT do tell you this though)

I'm with O2 BB (left Bt in Sept) and when my BT line rental contract is up I'm going to get O2's line rental as well.

O2's support is excellent/UK based and free :thumbsup:

I'm sick of trying to get any snes out of BT Indian customer service......Abysmal.
#19
I have had very good service from BT broadband the home hub is very reliable we had talk talk before which was very bad with no customer service .
#20
I'm with Cable and wanted to get my BT line back, but BT wanted £125 quid to reconnect the line and tie me into a 12 month deal.....er no thanks. Just waiting to see what o2 can do for reconnections.

What makes you think it will be any faster with o2....surely the speed is dependant on how far you are away from the exchange!

They didn't offer me anything when I asked to cancel my 12 month contract under their own T&Cs (points 45 to 48) i.e.

http://www.productsandservices.bt.com/consumerProducts/dynamicmodules/pagecontentfooter/pageContentFooterPopup.jsp?pagecontentfooter_popupid=13408&vendorid=SE7&s_cid=con_ppc_zedmedia_vidSE7_Calls+and+Lines


after they announced they were changing off-peak from 6pm to 7pm and thus changing the contract I had with them.

In fact they told me lies about the contract and said I would have to pay to cancel under the conditions in their tariff guide. When asked where the conditions were in the tariff guide they gave in and cancelled the contract.

If they (BT) do offer to price match O2 maybe ask if they could offer you UK based call centres and customer service staff that don't lie to you!!

Patiently waiting for O2 - even if it cost more I would go for it.

not necessarily, can also vary greatly depending on backbone used and other factors such as other users on the same network exchange etc

Yep. If you are going from a 'normal' broadband connection to LLU, then it could be a massive improvement.
The most I could get on a normal broadband line (from BT etc) was 4mb, but when I went to O2 LLU I could get 8mb

I rate O2 very highly for broadband. We still have the line rented through BT, but will likley move to O2 soon,
Only caveat is that O2 also offer 'normal' broadband (called 'Access') for areas that can't get LLU. From what I have seen this is pretty poor (speed caps etc.)

The BT vision box isn't free though is it. I am looking to stay with them and they have offered me approx £16.00 for the broadband and line rental, with the BT vision box it is working out approx £27 ! I would do another year if they send out the vision box for the £16 a month inc broadband and line rental. Can some one please advise ?

Well done for finding this info out, i'm sure it might help some people get out BT's contracts.:thumbsup:
#29
Thanks for sharing this information, Kingmuzzzauk.

As a direct result, I've now got £3 a month off my BT line rental by way of a £36 credit to the account - money for nothing, really. :thumbsup:

I have just left talk talk (ex tiscali) to move to Sky, I was a talk talk 'fully unbundled - MPF' customer which meant that they had taken my line over from BT. I have had no choice but to return to BT for my line rental, no install cost but I have committed to a 12 month contract, and then sign up to Sky broadband with Sky Freetime (calls only). After the 12 months are up I could move my line rental to sky too and save a little extra per month. Sky have presence at my exchange so the broadband is with them rather than BT.

O2 use ASDL 2+ on their exchanges, which is Faster than a lot of the other Broadband Providers.

Used to get less than 1Mb on Orange and got 7Mb since i went to O2 over 2 Years ago.

But the tariff guide does stipulate a cancellation charge for phone line termination, of £7.50 or £8 per month remaining on the contract. There is no mention in the tariff guide of detrimental material change removing this charge. There is mention in the tariff guide of material change removing any broadband cancellation charge.

Has anyone else successfully cancelled their BT phone line, within contract, for no charge?

That's the phone line though that the Tariff refers to. I was cancelling the Evenings and Weekends 12 month calling plan (which is not the phone line) so I can go to O2 when they release their landline offer in March. I have had my phone line over 6 years - if you have had it less than 12 months then you may not be able to cancel your line but you can come off your call plan (though probably doesn't make sense if you are stuck with BT anyway).

So to be clear I successfully came out of my 12 month contract Evenings and Weekend call plan back on to the normal Weekends call plan which only requires 14 days to terminate.

Does anyone know if BT will pricematch the £20 package which includes free anytime calls and unlimited broadband?

http://www.pocket-lint.com/news-gallery/30834/o2-offers-landline-phone-packages/2#image

I highly doubt BT will match the 0800 customer support or the free phone calls to USA (inc mobiles) which would be very very useful. However as im not actually an O2 customer prices for me are prob £5 per month higher.

I have just re-signed with BT Broadband @ £7.48 per mth for 12 mths (due to pathetic 512mb speed)

Having read through all of the posts here, I can tell that there are some clued up ppl here, so I thought I'd ask a couple of q's;

1) I thought that, as O2 use the same phone line as BT to bring broadband to my house, it would be the same speed, is this necessarily true, or does the number of users make a diff'?
2) Does having BT broadband mean that I have to have my line rental with BT?, or could I transfer the line rental bit to O2 when their deal goes live?

Thanks in advance

1. You couldn't be more wrong!
ADSL2+ from the likes of Be and O2 on an LLU enabled exchange, if available where you are) makes the world of differnce!
I could only get 1Mb/s with BT, and now get near enough 9Mb/s!

2 Didn't think so, however are you not now signed up to a contract for this as part of the Broadband deal with them too?

Even on a non-LLU exchange such as mine it can make a big difference, and it's probably down, as you suggest, to the number of users.

I live 3 miles from the exchange and manage to get almost 3mbs (not with BT Broadband). A BT engineer told me the other day that that's more than some of their customers get right next door to the exchange. I know several people in the same area but much nearer the exchange than me struggling to get 0.5mbs. Maybe you could be better off with one of the less well known ISPs.

Hey guys, thanks a lot.

I rang BT back and cancelled the new £7.50 per month contract and rang O2 this morning.

It's true, where BT can only offer 0.5mb O2 are saying 2.5mb.

With a £7.50 per mth price tag, 2 months free and a big quidco cashback, I think I'm getting 5 times faster braodband for £2.50 per month for the first year!

Not sure if I can keep my btinternet email addy tho'? (I still have an AOL addy and have not paid them a penny for over 4 years.

I'm gonna give you ppl as much rep' as I possibly can.

Bill de Sarce - I don't think you would be disappointed even if you paid the full £7.50 per month. If the lack of foreign calls centres doesn't make it worthwhile for you then the speed of downloads should.
