O2 Have announced they are to release a new landline service. Unfortunately you will need to be one of their Home Broadband customers (and subsequently an O2 Mobile customer):

Two home phone packages will be on offer from March:

Both include line rental

£9.50 p/m: Evening & Weekend offers unlimited calls to UK homes on evenings and weekends.

£12.50 p/m: Anytime offers any time, unlimited calls to UK homes. It also offers unlimited calls to 0845/0870 numbers and landlines in over 20 international countries
*Subject to fair use and includes:

*12 month Contract applies

Seems like a pretty decent deal if you are an existing customer... downside for me is the lack of caller display, but compared to my current contract with BT, will save a few quid.

The included international calls is a welcome bonus!

Hopefully there will be decent cashback to go with the deal!

Included in the 20 international destinations "The Vatican'?? that's all those late night chats with the Pope sorted then.
#5
Guess we just need a whopping cashback from Quidco for broadband and home phone line now, to make the switch even better.

As with all home phone services, check whether extra services are comparable or better than your current supplier, and that you can continue to use alternative suppliers, such as 18185, if you choose to. There were some issues over the past year when at least 1 telco stopped its customers from being able to do this.

this looks great, will have to see how it fairs up next to virgin for me. Whats the differences between premium and pro broadband?

Is it possible to have virgin tv on its own these days?
#7
HOT!

Equivalent on sky is £15 for landline and unlimited uk & international as above, potentially £12.50 here!

Plus o2 broadband has been superb, am hoping there will be a big quidco offer too!

Premium has a wireless 'n' router included.

Seems like caller display is extra though, not good!

Although nice to see 0845/0870 included as inclusive.

Same here. I'm on O2 broadband and would highly recommend them.
Best Customer Services around.

excellent, give those robdogs BT a run for their money, my contract with the expires in April too, good times!
#11
this sounds great BUT we have virgin landline so wouldnt be able to do this at a guess usually need bt landline anybody know ?
#12
When my Virgin contract runs out I might switch over, I wonder if they can reconnect me as I left my landline when I cancelled Talk Talk (worst customer service ever) and switched to Virgin.
#13
Does your exchange have to be LLU enabled to get this offer?
#14
Anyone know what happened to the o2 Joggler app store to be released before xmas?
#15
I agree i am with them for broadband and the service is excellent when i first joined them had trouble connecting to the Internet the man stayed with me on the phone for 2 1/2 hours till we got it sorted it ended up being a setting on my computer that was wrong so they could of just said not their problem but he didn't he stayed and helped and even thanked me at the end as he had learned of another problem and a way to solve it for the next person who rang with it. Fantastic never heard that before a customer service person who really wants to help will be going with their home phone. :-D

If only that were true!

It's still BT Openreach that will be doing the work if something goes wrong!
O2 won't be digging up the roads to put their own cables in.
#17
do you still need to pay bt line rental with this? also is it worthed going for the pro offer for the router? is it not cheaper to have the premium deal and buy router from somewhere else?
banned#18
great!!

Have been with O2 for BB nearly 2 years and cant fault them so this Looks interesting, caller display extra....

so a saving of £2.50 :thumbsup:
#22
Not a bad deal, i'll vote Hot but I'm sticking with my Post Office line, £11 a month, get a similar deal on calls, O2 broadband for £7.50 and the best bit, no minimum contract :roll:
#23
do they activate a line? i have recently moved into a newly built flat and the phone line needs activating

Don't see any sign of a bargain. Cold. Freezing in fact.

As an O2 customer (2 contract phones + ADSL2) I was hoping for something interesting but it's vanilla. Plain old rebadging and renaming of the same tat services I get off BT.

I might of went for it but this is the real killer for many:
http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/7617/83427599.jpg

BT refund the caller ID charge (part of Privacy at Home) if you make a few calls and TalkTalk make no charge [if you sign up for their privacy deal online or are new] and the fact O2 see this as a cash cow makes me feel a bit sick. Paying for your own ****ing privacy. **** me. And they even call it the "Privacy Pack".

No sale. For now anyway, but when my other deals are up I'll see what I can squeeze out of them.
#29
Hurray for this.

It's a nice saving and getting to ditch sky is, as they say, gravy.

Nice.
#30
Looks like a good deal, need to compare the prices now I am paying with Virgin. The Virgin broadband has been great for me but the o2 call packages look good.

How much hassle is it to switch from Virgin to o2? Do BT need to come in and reconnet?
banned#31
Cant wait.

Will scrap talktalk off for this, for sure!
#32
great great.. !!
its well worth to have competition for BT !!

Been wondering the same myself.

The SDK was released a few weeks ago so i guess maybe another couple of months for the app store?

A chance to not deal with BT???????????????

Does this mean if you get Landline rental from O2 + Broadband you no longer have to top up an O2 mobile phone every 3 months with £10 to get the £15 a quarter discount off the Broadband?

I've got £38 worth of unused credit on an O2 PAYG Phone - any ideas how it can be used other then talking and SMSing people? I find O2 PAYG Call rates are so expensive without taking bolt on's and since I hardly chat on the phone it's not good value for me - but it was better to top up with £40 of credit to get £60 in Broadbband savings over the last 12 months

Also I gave my 30 days notice to O2 2 eeks ago - due to be cut off in 2 weeks time - this new offer might entice me to stay with O2, any ideas if there's any bonuses for existing broadband customers to switch to O2 other then the £2 or so saving over BT line rental?

Also what are the implications in 12 months time if you want to leave O2? At least keeping Bt for line rental makes it very easy to switch ADSL providers, going to O2 for both Line rental and Broadband makes it much harder I bet to leave them and switch to another provider.

Hey guys, dont forget POST OFFICE HOME PHONE!
Similar deal but better as it includes mobiles for £12/month and only 30 days contract

For £12/mo you get[LIST]
[*]inclusive line rental - no need to pay BT
[*]inclusive evening and weekend calls - to UK landlines and 0845/0870 numbers1
[*]inclusive weekend calls - to [COLOR=Red]UK mobiles[/COLOR] as well as our top 40 international destinations1
[*]inclusive calls anytime - to other Home Phone customers1
[*]no long contract and no minimum tie-in[/LIST]

Im With POST OFFICE for line rental (for the weekend mobile calls mainly)
And O2 for the braodband (worked out £15 for the year including quidco)

So PO + O2 = £12 + £10
meaning its only £22 for unlimited UK landlines evening and weekend, plus mobiles at the weekend, plus 20mb broadband (with cashback) and no tie-ins for the contract....

Can you not get those services through the TPS for Free?

Another thing I'm wondering about - will CPS work with this service?

Does your exchange have to be LLU enabled to get this offer?
