Works out at £7.62 per month after quidco cashback and a free phone. Also unlimited access to 6100 Wi-Fi hotspot locations in the UK. Seems like a good deal to me.

Oh and a free USB 3G modem too and get O2 Home Broadband for an extra £4.90 a month.

I think O2 came out on top for the speed of these dongles - voted hot...
#2
Existing O2 home broadband customers can get this (as can existing mobile broadband customers). However, would they qualify for the £150 Quidco cashback being an existing customer? If yes, what about if they received Quidco cashback when originally signing up to O2 home broadband?

Does anyone here have the answers?

Seems like a good deal - heat and rep

#4
excellent deal, heat added
#5
Very good deal. Hope quidco is reliable on this, as £150 would be a painful amount to lose!
#6
I have used o2 & vodafone broadband in Manchester , Stockport area and Vodafone is a lot faster. Vodafone is half price if you have mobile contract with them.
#7
I'm still waiting on £25 from 02 via Quidco after 23 months....For that reason I can't vote this hot (but won't vote cold!)
#8
O2 have the best UK network.
#9

#10

This is an ok deal if the mobile broadband works for you. I got between 60%-100% signal and HSDPA and suffered loads of dropouts of the connection and slower than dial up browsing speeds. This was on o2 PAYG, I updated the connection manager and firmware on the dongle and also swapped it for another dongle. I have an o2 phone which gets a full HSDPA signal and the browsing speed isn't too great on that. I borrowed a 3 dongle from work and it worked all the time, it wasn't fast though. The 3 skype phone my m8 has browses the net faster than my w760i on o2 with HSDPA connection (Yes I have disabled "Allow local connection on the w760i, speeds up browsing as it doesnt try and use bluetooth etc to connect). So even if you have a great signal you might be in a rubbish area which I presume is what I'm in lol. Tried more than one computer as well. Basically for me o2 even with a great HSDPA signal was very very poor.

Yep o2 signal is very poor down in East Anglia also, I wouldn't even bother with it. Can't even pickup a signal sometimes unless you sit in the perfect position!

I really don't trust quidco, it takes forever for the money to go through as well...

I have to agree with some of the other comments here - I wouldn't risk a deal that was dependent on a high quidco payout anymore. I have been waiting on some payments for a very long time now and most times the big amounts aren't tracking anymore and it's necessary to put in enquiries, which mean even longer for payouts. Quidco isn't anywhere near reliable enough to be factored into costing a deal.

Keep an eye out for 3 offers. Every couple of months they do a half price 18 month deal - which usually works out at about £7.50 per month for 5gb or £5 per month for 1gb. Add in potential reccommend a friend and quidco extras as extra sweeteners with 3.

24 months is a long time and the whispers in the industry are that when you take out a mobile contract on certain tarfiffs (probably £30+) a usb stick and 3gb a month will be included for free - maybe in the next 6 months
#16
WELL, think it comes down to - if you want the o2 broadband and u think its a good idea go for it, and if you get the Quidco. bargain! its a bonus...... but, you should never count on Quidco, so only buy the deal if you want it and are willing to pay the full price.... :w00t: :w00t:
#17
I had no problem with my 2 £50 payouts O2 quidco,anyway if the signal is not good enough can you cancel contract and return dongle.
#18
i ordered this on weds delivered on thurs but quidco has only tracked at £35 and £40 pounds so half of what it should be
#19
its not a bad deal but the only thing putting me off is the 2 year contract thats very long, do o2 freeze contracts like say when your abroad so they stop charging?
#20
went for this a week ago, works great and what a bargain, £75 tracked so far, guess the other £75 comes later...

o2 are offering a "50 day Happiness Guarantee" if you have any problems with mobile broadband

Beware of 3!!! :shock: if you go over your monthly allowance you will be charged an obscene amount!

But if you call them, they'll cap it so you can't go over

Where did you read that? Not doubting what you say, just everything I read suggested that O2 were about the worst. Tried it myself as there was a cheap offer for O2 home broadband customers but returned it within about a week cos it was so damn slow.... Went back to 3...

Just another word of warning about Quidco. The cashback is certainly not guaranteed as I have had several problems getting it. Even after raising an enquiry about my BT home phone and broadband sign up I was unable to get any cashback so made my annual costs quite alot more than I was expecting to pay.

Now I always use the cashback checker on MSE and use an alternative if possible.
