Get NTL to knock your Broadband Price to £9.99

I have had broadband off NTL for a couple of years now and was paying £17.49. Now seeing as there is lots of 'free' broadband offers out there (but not quite free!), i phoned them up and said I want to leave to transfer to one of these, straight away they offer you a reduced rate at £9.99 for 6 months, after 6 months just phone them up again and they will give you another 6 months and so on. Figured this would say save peeps a few bob.
P.s. you can ring them on 01256 752000 if you don't like 08 numbers.

this info has been doing the rounds on various forums, as sky have bought their £10 for 16mg broadband, ntl will half what you pay now!

we used to pay £34.99 for 10mb with ntl, called them up a few days ago and we got them to agree £15 for 10mb for 1 year, no contract :)

so everyone who has ntl, call them up :)

A friend of mine had been with AOL for a couple of years and when he decided to switch, they lowered the price to £9.99 for 1 MB broadband & no contract to tie-up.
#3
AOL have always been a good bet to offer something better when you mention you want to try another service provider...4
#4
good prices... shame i still have to pay £18 for 512kb... oh how kingston communications sucks!!
#5
I always knew AOL would give me a free month every time I wanted to cancel dial-up or had trouble. I've not tried their broadband yet. I got broadband in April 2005 but I later upgraded for network reasons so I think I can't threaten to leave until August. Will try it though!!
#6
Does this work for Telewest too?
#7
probably....works for a lot of things....you always get free stuff from companies when you threaten to leave....just have to make sure you know if what they are offering is going to beat the offer of the company you want to switch to.

Except Pipex, they're happy to let you go your own way.

Would this work if you are only a few months into a new contract or only for people whose contracts have finished?
#11
JazzG,

Probably these would work only if you have spend sometime with a company. If you have just joined and threaten to leave, you will be breaching the contract.

BTW, welcome to HUKD :)
#12
Yeah that is what I thought as well :( Though I might give it a try just to see what they say!

Thanks for the warm welcome, very nice site you have here. Keep up the good work :thumbsup:
#13
I tried this with NTL a few months back - I was going to go over to BullDog - They couldn't give a toss if I left and offered nothing! Been with NTL for years!:(

Turned out that Bulldogs offer was crap after they added all the extras - so stayed with ntl!!!!

Must give it another go:smile:
#14
I've been with Wanadoo (now Orange) for like 20 months and still paying 29 pounds for 8mbits/s (I actually receive 2.6mbit/s). Will call them tomorrow to demand price decrease - 10 per month will be OK.
#15
Don't just say "I demand a price decrease" though, lol!!

Tell them you think it's too expensive so you are moving to another company. Especially since you only get 2.6Mb!!
#16
Anyone here with Bulldog? I am, and recently went from £30 to £40 a month for phoneline and 8mb unmetered. I asked why the price rise, they said i was discounted for a year, would i like 16Mb for same price. No, i'd like to be paying £30 a month like i used to!

They said no, no refund, i was told it was for 12 months, and that was that. I said when did you tell me, oh, we sent you a letter. Irony is, they never did, all was set-up online.

I waded through their site, changed it myself to the £30/month for 8mb rang and complained (again) and got 2 free months :D

Moral is, ring, ring and ring some more, eventually someone with some commitment and knowledge of their job will help.
#17
all ISPs will know about sky's new broadband service: http://87.86.186.37/showmeskybroadband.htm

just quote sky broadband to your isp and see what they, if they dont sort you out and are allowed to leave them go over to sky if you are a sky subscriber) its a very good deal!
#18
I recently registered my interest in sky broadband but was wandering what the SKY talk was.

I understand its £5 for unlimited calls to UK landlines but is there a charge for the phone line on top of that because it seems cheap compared to the charges by other companies.

Any info appreciated
#19
fantastic, it works!!
#20
NTL freephone number 08000529403 'cos theres a long wait at the moment.:thumbsup:
Wonder why.:lol:

Edit:just spotted NTL telewest freephone number on tv advert.....08000523430.
#21
OK.Finally got through to NTL.....RESULT.:-D
Told them i wanted to cancel all my services.The chap from ntl started to go through the cancellation process and then said what i can do for you if you like is..............
So.........Was paying
for 10mb unlimited broadband = £34.99
line rental = £10.50
Talk unlimited = £6.00
Grand total = £51.49 :(

Now paying......wait for it.......£18 TOTAL ......no time limit.:lol:
He also included talk unlimited 24 free for 3 months.
So all in all i am saving £33 a month and no call charges at all for a whole 3 months.Absolutely fantastic.
Thanks to tdogg for prompting me to do this.
You rep'has just gone up. :thumbsup:

Edit:Forgot to mention that he gave me the first 2 months free as well,as a good will gesture.It just gets better.
#22
I managed to get my 2mb NTL at £25 per month changed to 10mb for £17.50 for 6 months with no 12 month contract. Pure awesome although the real speed is only like 7mbps :(
#23
Do you think this will work for new customers who haven't signed up yet?? Haven't got any NTL/Telewest services yet, but would like to get the 10mb broadband but don't want to pay £35/month for it.....

I would certainly think so.Just give them a call.....nothing to lose.Tell them that some friends of yours are getting it at that price and could you have the same package.If they won't ,just say forget it.:smile:
#25
Rumours of 20mbit NTL/TW Cable Internet planned for £25/month, will probably take over a year for trials and rollout to occur, so 2007 most likely.

Just finished the call and my price was reduced from 27.99 to 17.99 for the same service - I was hoping to get 10 per month or at least 15 :(
I'll try them again in 1 week - they have a speed issue to resolve :lol:

The guy on the phone today told me 16mb in the near future at no extra cost to 10mb.Don't know when in the future though.:-)

cheers Will try later.

Anyone know what time the lines are open too as the 15 minute queue will surely deminish ?
#31
Hello.
You also need to consider your bandwidth usage. Do you think that sky broadband would let me join them since I use lots of bandwidth?:-) I just call my broadband provider AOL to cancel my broadband. They used my heavy usage as an atempt to stop me from going to sky.:x But the let me change to silver 1MB AOL for 9.99 from my gold 2MB for 24.99. See any differnce? Big time....huh!;-)
#32
hmmm, very interesting indeed! I've been plodding along happily paying £24.99 a month for 2mb with NTL and I've been with them for 3 years! Trouble is, threatening to leave is a bit of an empty threat as I have no alternative - broadband isn't available via the BT line where I live! Still, maybe they don't know that......
#33
How far do you live from your local exchange? Who told you ADSL wasn't available?
#34
ok, just did a speed check and it turns out I'm actually on 4mb, so maybe I'm not being ripped off quite as much as I thought.

Not sure how far, but it's too far. Here's the story - I live in a new housing development (or 'settlement' as the marketing people like to call it) which for some odd reason had very old-fashioned BT lines installed which are unable to sustain broadband (apparently). I'm one of the lucky ones really, as the other side of the town doesn't have NTL cables either, so they're totally stuffed!
#36
Got my 10mb and phone for £25 a month now. Thanks Alot!!!
#37
I work for Openreach thats all. Never heard of a problem like yours before. Mind saying that I used to work for Telewest before I jumped shipped to BT and Cable Broadband is (in my opinion) better (performance wise) than any ADSL offering.
#38
I've got phone and 10meg broadband with ntl and have spoken to customer services. They've initially reduced the BB cost to £17.50 for 3 months and advised ringing the retentions dept between 9-5 on 0800 052 9403 as they may be able to improve on the offer.

Just tell them it is too expensive anyway and you don't see why you should be paying that much when you know for a fact that hundreds of other customers are paying far less.If they call your bluff and start the cancellation,don't worry as you have to give 30 days notice and you can just call back another day and say you have changed your mind and they will happily reinstate your service.;-)

hehe... Retentions Department.

Sorry, just my childish sense of humour. I want to work in a retentions department.
