Because it's your first post I will be kind :)

Never include Quidco or Topcashback in the quote (£1.09 in your case)

It's worth mentioning that this offer is only for o2 customers (all others pay £5 extra per month)

This offer has been on for a while (was £100 cashback at some stage), but I think it hasn't been listed for a long time, so it's a good reminder.

You are very right...please edit accordingly, regards

Thanks for the heads up! Do we know how long this offer is for?

We're looking to break the links with BT and go O2, thieving BT.

might be for me

Be kind and rewind

Changed to O2 from BT Broadband earlier in the year, faultless service, getting 10-11Meg instead of 1.7M from BT and unlike BT, not paying the £26.99 a month they were charging any more.

Been with o2 for the last 6 months. At the beginning it was good but then went very bad after two months. Constant lost connections and slow surfing. Now it has improved a bit. I think when they run an offer they put too many people on one line. It gets better after a while because I think lots of people leaving. This is my experince so far. Let's see how I feel after my one year is up.

BTW, if you do use cashback don't use Quidco because they charge you. Use Topcashback (those two always have the same offers). Topcashback gives you all the money and they are faster with payments as well.

For this price, I am totally satisfied with them.

Same deal for standard broadband that has been on for months now (except we got 3 months free)

BEWARE though as O2s DNS servers are carp! So people experiencing slow or no service then change your DNS settings to 8.8.8.8 (google dns)

I tried topcashback for a few months but reverted back to quidco. You'd be suprised how many times I still found quidco paying a higher % than topcashback, and they're inbcredibly relaible too...so it's quidco all the way for me!

What is the monthly download limit? I don't believe the "UNLIMITED" thinggy thats rubbish. Whats the fine print with F.U.P? :roll:
#17
Your calculations won't be strictly accurate as tomorrow with 17.5% VAT reimposed it is HIGHLY likely that o2 will round their subscriptions back to where they were before being precisely reduced for the temporary 2.5% reduction - ie £7.50/£10.00/£17.50 (all plus £5/m for those who don't have an o2mobile contract or top-up £10/qtr on an o2 PAYG).

That said unless you are desperate for broadband I would suggest hanging on a few days as:
a) o2 have more often than not had 2 or 3 months FREE too on THEIR site
b) the Q/TCB cashbacks only went up £25 today so highly unlikely to fall again very soon
c) there are RUMOURS of o2 offering home (landline) telephone services of some sort too, with some details RUMOURED for next week... and MIGHT worth killing two birds with one stone.

Meanwhile you can see my features o2 (versus Be, their sister Telefonica Europe firm) and net-cost comparison (not yet updated as awaiting tomorrows prices) at
http://cid-99aa6cf1226facfe.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/o2%20Broadband%20-v-%20Be%20There%20Broadband

Just a reminder to people that the WORTHWHILE o2 Broadband packages are the LLU ones - ie based on Telefonica Europe's DSLAM equipment at the exchanges with ADSL2+ service sold under their Be & o2 brands- ie Std/Premium/Pro and NOT o2 Access which is just a resold BTwholesale ADSLmax service, which seems to be suffering from excess popularity with (congesting) users, obviously attracted by its price and historically unlimited downloading - now managed much to their (justifiable?) chagrin!

Moved to these last month on the previous deal (£100 quidco, 3 months free). Had a few snags connection wise in the first week but been very happy since. And given overall I'm actually up on the deal, I can't complain.

The o2 LLU subscriptions don't have limits other than the FUP saying you shouldn't affect their other customers. Not aware of anyone who's been disconnected as a result (and they don't have any traffic management or shaping either). I've been with them over 2 years and have had my 84% of synch as usable bandwidth for almost all the period with only very minor hiccups.

Do you get much better speeds when changing your DNS? I might consider doing it, even though my speed is decent, but I don't trust google lol.

No monthly limit, and I download on average about 7-10GBs per week (depending on what stuff is available on the PSN store, podcasts, videos, music etc. probably more than that actually.)

Don't know whether or not to wait or go for it now, decisions decisions.... I'll inform father and see what he thinks (he's paying for it lol :p the joys of still living at home!).

3 months free would be awesome, but for the sake of what... £6? I don't think it's worth waiting lol. Although I'm curious about the phone line integration as mentioned above, so may wait a week... We'll see.

No Red... the cashback went back down for December to 50/75/100 from this previous peak of 75/100/125, AND without the free 3m as you mention - ie this is a £25 better deal from TODAY (than for the last month).

Fortunately they do SEEM to have fixed (most of?) the o2 DNS as I haven't experienced any hiccups this month.

I saw a board in O2 store yesterday saying 2 months free. I know they had a 3 month free a few months back. Can't see anything about the 2 months online anywhere. Maybe the store put the board up too soon? Maybe a new year offer?

I hope so as i'm moving in Feb and want to sign up with O2

The 2m free is puzzling because when they ended the 3m they updated the section on their homepage : "Not ready to switch yet? Tell us when you'll be ready and we'll give you two months free home broadband."

HOWEVER no hint of the 2m "crystallising" UNTIL your report of that board - so looks RATHER likely that 2m free is coming IMMINENTLY.

If you need broadband where you are now and can get LLU there'd be nothing to stop you signing up where you are (when you feel certain enough to 'plump') and MOVING the service as you're allowed one free move (per annum from memory).

i signed up to O2 2 years ago and renewed the contract in May and they gave me 3 months free on another 12 month contract so if i were you I will ask for free months when your contract runs out.

Can't you cancel then sign up again? :thumbsup:

Just because no one has said it yet and it can't be said enough - do not go on Access under any circumstances, if you can't get the LLU service forget it!
#32
I've sent a query to o2 as to whether I am in the target area. My dad phoned them up and they said we couldnt (that could have been because we are on Talk Talk and not BT). If I am in im snapping their hands off!

I know O2 uses Be dslams and Be is quite generous with the usage allowance without mentioning any specific limits but 7-10GBs w/o any shaping (even during peak hours) sounds pretty impressive. :roll:
Hows the customer support? Is it UK based support or offshore call centres? (Been with crappy AOL/CPW before and seen all customer support. Kicked them out long time back)
#34
I changed my mobile over to O2 to get the broadband at discount about a year ago. Recently I found that the discount of about £5 had not been applied for 11 months. When I phoned O2 they said it was my fault in not checking my bill and refused to give any refund!! But after about 1 hour on the phone they agreed to give me a part refund. The O2 customer services just don't care about their customers.

The difference in speed is small in milliseconds, however the reliability of actually being able to use the DNS rather than O2's is much better.

Very pleased with O2 in the 8 months so far. I am on an LLU exchange though. Got my cashback from Quidco no problem. Unlimited d/ls up to about 100 gig a month. Never had any problems.

Surely the fact o2 CS finally give you a SOME refund DESPITE you failing to notice that ELEVEN monthly bills were in your view wrong means they are damn good to you as a customer ???

For the future you want to deal ONLINE exclusively to blag any signup discount. The o2 website has a checker to see which ADSL service(s) they can offer on your phone number - just put your number in there and see what comes up. If you are paying TalkTalk for your line rental then I don't think you're eligible for o2 Home BB as TT provide you with a full LLU service ie line/voice/ADSL as a bundle and you'd have to de-TT and revert to BT line (paying rental to someone eg BT, POffice, others) then add o2 BB to that.

If your exchange has their equipment at it, they should offer your the Std/Prem/Pro packages (as already mentioned o2 Access is NOT a hot deal). HOWEVER sometimes their equipment is already fully subscribed so u can't get the service even though your exchange is LLU'd. SOMETIMES you CAN get the service from Be instead as there must be SOME allocation of the kit between the two sister companies. Until TODAY Be have half-price Be Value which isn't THAT much more expensive (after £25 cashback) for a service that is most of the o2 Standard (just missed out on SMS & McAfee & UK based phone support).
