top cash back offer 130 for this deal every so often. I got this deal last june for 162 minus 130 cash back so 30 for the year. I've seen it pop up once arouns october too keep an eye out for it
#3
EE also provides £100 credit towards any early contract termination charges imposed by your existing supplier - handy for those desperate to jump ship without taking the financial hit http://buyout.ee.co.uk/
#4
cant fault these guys. i work from home and never had a drop in connection unlike some others ive had. Got the £130 cashback as well through quidco. £60 for yr as i had to pay 30 for new line switchin frm talktalk.
#5
We just did similar for Plusnet, found the service more reliable before we had Sky (dropped out constantly). Bit more,. £12.99 per month up front line rental and £2.50 bb, but £120 cashback, so well worth it. Bout £65 after cashback :)
#6
are these cashback offers if you pay total cost up front for the year
#7
Yh i paid upfront and got 130 tcb! worked out I got 12months free line rental and 1 month broadband free (2.50pm for first year) so in effect got 12months broadband for around £30 including line rental
#8
Be wary as we swapped over from BT to EE for line rental and BB but they refused to honour the TCB inspite of my lodging a claim with TCB and emailing EE customer services. I should have got £134 TCB but got £0.
#9
Do they throttle? I have read the peak period extends until 1am.

Cashback provided by separate company. Paying 12m line rental upfront is optional (but provides better value over the contract term).

From 5-6pm can not stream as its always buffering or just stops dead, anyone else having same problem ?
have you managed to get it sorted and if so how ?

Do they do Fibre/unlimited calls?

They slow down P2P & Newsgroup data from 4:30pm to 1am on weekdays and 1:30pm to 1am on weekends. Gaming and VoIP traffic are prioritised during these times.

Here's the link to full traffic management policy:

Do they do Fibre/unlimited calls?

Yes they do.

EE Fibre Broadband (Up to 38Mb) + Anytime Calls (18 months)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Broadband + Anytime Calls for 18 months = £347.10 (effectively £20.78/month)
Line Rental Saver + 6 months normal rate = £226.50 (effectively £12.58/month)
Router P&P = £6
Fibre Activation = Free

Total = £509.60 (inc. £70 Quidco Cashback) (effectively £28.31/month)

Prices may of changed since I made my list a couple of days ago, I know BT prices and cashback rates have. Also you may be charged an activation fee. Finally, read Quidco T&C's before you purchase just in case there's something in there that might prevent you from getting the cashback.

Edit: Effective monthly costs are rounded up so they're not exact, but the total costs should be. Also remember prices can go up during your contract.

If only true ... I can't play battlefield 3 anymore .. terrible rubberbanding.

Went from TT to EE and on the same PC, everything the same, bang.

Awful thing is I can't see anything wrong. No dropping packets and the speed is 16mbs on normal broadband. I hardly get any breaks in service (only when setting up).

Definitely no P2P either.

Great for surfing and streaming vids from Youtube, Netflix etc.

The P2P thing doesn't bother me too much, it is the terrible gaming experience.

Oh and it isn't just BF3, oh no, Titanfall, Mw3, GRID, BF4... there is more but I realise I may be playing too many games.... seeing as I am not mentioning single players...eek!

TalkTalk Fibre is cheaper than EE.

TalkTalk Fibre Broadband (Up to 38Mb) + Anytime Calls (18 months)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fibre Broadband for 18 months = £141 (effectively £7.83/month)
Anytime Calls for 18 months = £135 (£7.50/month)
Caller Display = Free
Line Rental Saver + 6 months normal rate = £280.56 (effectively £15.59/month)
Fibre Activation = Free
Router P&P = £5

Total = £477.56 (inc. £84 TCB) (effectively £26.53/month)

It did include a £50 Love2Shop voucher yesterday which would of made it effectively £23.75/month, but it seems to have gone again.

Also forgot to mention calling features, not sure what you need. Most people only need Caller display (I'm still amazed this isn't included as standard) and the only companies I've seen that charge for it is Fuel (formerly Primus Saver) and Plusnet.

Edit: Just thought I should add that I've been on TalkTalk Fibre since November and it's been pretty damn good, especially in comparison to Sky's ADSL broadband which was crap. I'd get daily dropouts and they would blame it on my extension, even though on o2 ADSL it was perfectly fine. My current connection has been going for 39 days and it's at the fastest speed I've gotten since signing up (I was kind of worried they would try to siphon off 1 or 2Mb/s without me noticing haha).

Although in contrast, my brother also signed up to TT Fibre with TV around the same time and he's been having problems with intermittent connections (sometimes YouView doesn't want to work). Apparently it's to do with his exchange.

I have contacted TT customer service in regards to a mobile order and they were a pain to deal with, it was the first time I've ever gotten angry and put the phone down. Then again you will get the same service from most ISP's, apart from Sky. Despite my issues with their ADSL, at least we could hear and understand each other, that's the only thing I miss.

2nd Edit: The reason I have a list is because my other brother is looking to switch from Plusnet so I never bothered to look at them, but their fibre deal is cheaper than TT until midnight tonight as the Topcashback rates expires:

Plusnet Fibre (Up to 38Mb) + Anytime Calls (18 months)
------------------------------------------------------
Fibre Broadband = £202.38 (effectively £11.24/month)
Line Rental Saver + 6 months at current normal rate = £251.58 (effectively £13.98/month)
Anytime Calls = £60 (£5/month)
Caller Display = £11.88 (99p/month)
Router P&P = £5.99

Total = £426.83 (inc. £105 TCB) (effectively £23.71/month)

Price may vary as it says I don't have a compatible line, but installation is free.

Also bare in mind that Plusnet Fibre usually requires that the Openreach modem be installed in addition to the router you get from them.

My gosh after being 5 years with sky switched to EE last year to save money. The worst service ever! You have been warned! The speed was not atrocious! Dropped from 19mb/s to 1 to 2 mb/s with high ping. Sent engineer and he goes nothing was wrong.

Switched back to SKY and walah! Back to 19mb/s with a pin of 7ms for £25 a month after discount.

SKY so far the best. EE is just really bad but that's just my experience as they couldn't fix anything on my line. It was clearly from their end which the fault lie but they refused to admit.
#22
Sorry correction the speed was atrocious with EE.*
#23
Was it the modem as all the lines are owned and maintained by BT when sky was first installed the phone line was crackly. It was an open reach engineer who fixed it.
