Quidco are currently offering a £70 cashback for the o2 home broadband service. If you are an o2 mobile customer, you can get the standard package for 7.34 a month. Aftter Quidco it works out at just over 1.50 a month for a 12 month contract! (Thanks Moob)

Also there is 3 months free on the two other packages, if you require faster speeds.

STANDARD 12 x 7.34 = 88.08 - 70 = 18.08 p/a divde by 12 = £1.506666 per month
PREMIUM 9 x 9.79 = 88.11 (3 months free) - 70 = 18.11 p/a divide by 12 = £1.5096 per month

(sorry for going all Vorderman)

So you're better off getting the Premium package, as you get faster speeds for less than 3p extra than the standard package over the course of a 12 month contract.

Was going to go though quidco the last time it was £60 and phoned retentions to check a few things first, anyway the guy said if i signed up though him now over the phone, he would give me a 12 month contract for FREE.

Well pleased with the 8meg broadband, speed, service and router can't really go wrong all this for free..

great.
but too late for me.

I think the minimum term is 12 months for O2 BB - see here.

I'm with O2, and can't fault it - 1.3Mb upload as well, which is nice.

I upgraded my contract with o2 in december. I'm only paying 7.50/month 12month contract, so I'm not a high worth customer or anything and they offered me 12months home Broadband for free.

so pretty easy to get it for free if your a mobile customer starting a new contract, otherwise It's great service so far.

I went with Bethere (same company!) on a Quidco deal recently... and they are busting a gut to avoid letting me have the 40 quid that was available - to say deliberately evasive is putting it mildly! It is difficult to make a claim if the number you need to make that claim is never sent, and they will not give it to you! Even more difficult to know you are going to get ripped off until after the 30 day trial period has expired too! Very cleverly timed :-(

It seems it is not the first time this has happened, but I am not finding much information (positive or negative!) from other Be and 02 users who used Quidco to sign up - odd that, I would have thought many users would have signed via Quidco.

I went with the Bethere option that allows me to get out after 3 months, and as good as the Internet service is seeming to be, I know when I am being ripped off, so I may well put the notice in and go elsewhere.

How safe is Quidco? Last time I tried, my anti-virus reported malware. They do monitor all your activities once you have allowed them in. The refund is not guaranteed anyway. You might end up with the full bill. I don't vote on this.

I block ads and have no problem with their site - I turn it off when using a referral link, then put it back on after completing the transaction. Nothing has tried to download any malware though - my AV and anti-spyware software remains on!

I have never had a problem before... then again, no other company has been deliberately evasive! If this is going to be the future, then I won't be using it, and will get 40 quids worth of vent by making sure every consumer site on the Internet knows it, and also moving to another ISP!

3 MONTHS FREE on Premium and Pro packages as well - plus FREE connection and FREE wireless router ... shame I am not in an 02 enabled area.:cry:
#9
heat added, was just about to sign up for 02 as well! , thanks OP :)

repped as well :)
#10
AFAICS the Quidco cashback is only on the 8Mbps Standard package, not on the 20Mbps Premium and Pro ones. O2 do have a 3-month free deal on those.

i did this and got the same deal !!!:thumbsup:
#12
This deal will probably get pulled by mods any minute now as it's a "Quidco only" deal.

Nice spot though!
#13
I got the 12 month free a month ago and am well pleased with the performance - and the way the order is handled! Highly reccomend them. Its basically BE broadband.
#14
It does look like its only the standard package but I don't see the logic in that - I would assume they would prefer people to take the more expensive options...

I assume the people phoning retentions were contract customers. Do you think they would offer a deal for a PAY user who has spent £10/20 a month for the last few years.
#15
Joined on the 60 cashback deal end of OCT very happy with service and BB and received the cashback into my quidco account today :-)

HOT DEAL
#16
iv'e just got O2 installed 22nd dec
the set up was quite easy using their wireless box 11
i have a desktop pc hard wired from the router, and two laptops wireless
the only problem i have is ; i have a wireless bridge adapter (linksys wet11) connected to a set top box (dreambox)
i can't get this bridge adapter work with the O2 router which is causing me some concern

i had a linksys router installed (wag 354g )with my old isp and the wet11 worked very well with this.

i perhaps need to use the linksys router with O2 but i think it is a problem to configure:oops:
#17
So I supose this would not work on the £17 "Home Broadband Access" for those of us outside the coverage area?

It is usually all packages but since pro and the higher one have a "3 months free" offer going the cashback is just for standard for now.
#19
The quidco is just the icing on the cake. Even if you don't get quidco the O2 service is excellent - in particular the high upload speed. I have been with o2 for 12 months now having been with three ISPs previously. I have no plans to switch from o2.
#20
too alte for me as signed up with o2 march this year but voted hot
grrr
#21
O2 are very picky about their broadband customers. Would love to sign up with them as good value but they won't accept us after phone line check. We live some way from exchange but get solid 1.5-2MB speed, and other ISPs are more than happy to take our money, but not O2!! not impressed one bit!
#22
I dont have a BT line so will quidco/o2 do a deal for a dongle.
#23
Ahh mate cant thank you enough,
signed up a week ago without any cashback, Just called them now and told them to cancel it due to unforeseen circumstances. :) LOL

Going to sign up now through quidco. Cheers
#24
I signed up to O2 earlier today, this deal was just the icing on the cake for me.

Minus Quidco, the standard package is £88.08 for the year. With the three months free, the Premium package is £88.11 for the year, 3 pence in it.

It may be possible to sign up to the standard package, bag your 70 sheets then upgrade the service.

O2 did tell me today that I should only work with a package that my line is capable of achieving. I was told that there is no point going above Standard as my line can only achieve 6mb. I appreciated the honesty.
#25
Thanks for the post.

Forum guidelines say deals should be posted at prices before Quidco (by all means mention the quidco in the title but the pre-Quidco price should also be quoted.) There are 2 reasons for this - Quidco isn't 100% reliable and not everyone uses Quidco.....

Ok thanks for the heads-up! will edit it now!

O2 use ADSL2+ whereas most other ISPs use standard ADSL (IPStream or Datastream).
The different technology is probably behind the decision.
#29
I'm already with O2, paying £7.50 per month as I'm an existing customer.
Is there any way I can take advantage of any of these better deals? I think my 12 months runs out in April or thereabouts.

Thats a good point. They may be a bit fussy about giving the 3 months free though.
#32
Just signed up but quidco has tracked (pending) at £60 not £70.

Has anyone managed to track the full £70?

This still represents a fantastic deal though, I was paying £10 month for Virgin 2MB line.

Edit: Very odd, I raised a earning enquiry via quidco and the subject was automatically filled in as "missing £10 earnings". After submitting the enquiry my quidco account is now tracking at the full £70. This happened straight after submission no delay. Was quidco cheekly trying to con out £10 for themselves me wonders? Very cheeky if so. :x
#33
And why the hell has this deal been pulled? It is a valid deal and represents good value for money, even without quidco.

I'm showing exactly the same thing. Not sure what to do as my old Eclipse tracking showed £20 instead of £25.

When queried, they paid both the £20 and £25.

Do I wait or do I query? Hmmm....

I won O2 broadband for a year in October..... called up to sort it all out & they said the exchange is full up & when one comes available they'll call us..... still waiting.

Good deal if you can get it :)

pulled from where?

Trying to purchase this but it keeps stating we are outside of the O2 network

"We've estimated that your maximum download speed is 6 meg. This is based on information BT gave us about your BT line. You're outside the network area that O2 Broadband covers, but all is not lost. We can offer you our O2 Home Broadband Access package. Actual download speeds depend on different things, like the distance between your telephone exchange and your home, or the quality of your BT line. We'll work with what's there and always give you the fastest speed we can, depending on your chosen package. Even then, your broadband speed might vary from time to time."

they can however connect us up at £17.95 p/mth

how does that work...is it a con
#38
postcode check: "Hurray! O2 Broadband is available in your area"
telephone number check: "You can't get O2 Broadband unless you have a BT landline."

our land line phone/cable/internet is on virgin media but have mobiles on O2 ... drats.
#39

It means O2 do not have their own equipment installed in your exchange, nothing dodgy. They'll sell you broadband via a third party though i.e. BT
