Last year when I renewed my O2 Standard Broadband I was given a £2.50 discount which took it down to £5/month (I have an O2 contract). I have been offered the same deal again (via retentions). However, I have also been offered a different deal. If I take Home Phone (£7.50 per month for basic line) I can have free broadband for a year - but I will be moved onto the All Rounder package.

On the surface this looks like a no brainer. But I am concerned what will happen after 12 months. I would be stuck on the All Rounder package (£12/month) which is quite a bit more than the Standard package that I am on now.

For now I have stuck with the £5/month deal.

just renewed my contract with o2 to get the home phone with free weekend & evening calls 20Meg BB and the new 'N' router for only 9.50 a month. After 12 months you can renegotiate your package or just let the charges revert to their normal costs.

Did this a few months back. Worthy of a reminder.

All rounder is traffic managed and usage capped, Avoid it like the plague imo.

I had looked into the Homephone from o2, but since they charge extra for Caller Display, it works out the same as BT line rental (it's really between the freedom of BT line vs restrictions of o2 line).

If you look carefully into o2 T&C and price list, you will find that they charge a lot more than BT for quite a few services, (but not as much as Virgin, which is the most expensive in the UK).

BTW, your £5 quote is a bit misleading because you cannot get this unless you take another service (or renew/upgrade your old service?) Not quite sure how your offer works actually.

Great deal, signed up, £7.50 per month for 8Mb uncapped/unthrottled with free landline phone for a year. I don't use my landline for outgoing calls as we have plenty of free minutes on our mobiles.
The only difficulty I had was they asked me to send my old router back which failed about 2 months ago, luckily I bought an O2 N router (which was on offer found via here for £10) and they are letting me send that back (bit daft swapping identical routers, but hey!)
I've always been really happy with the speed and customer services with O2. The only reason I'm going to cancel my mobile contract with them is that I can get a 12 month contract with Tesco as opposed to 18+ months with O2.
Hope this helps

Only get very slow broadband speeds where we live and even though I'm o2 customer (mobile) we can't get their cheap broadband - our line not set up for it yet.

Still voted hot for those who can get it.

Slightly off topic, but anyone else with O2mobile having problems at moment? Called their support line and said there's a 15 min wait as they're having lots of problems due to the weather. :|

Just found that out to my surprise after my speeds had been poor the last past few days. I wasn't told about the traffic shaping / limits or caps when renewing so I phoned up and kicked up a stink threatening to cancel as I was misinformed etc. In the end I got upgraded to the ' The works' package all for the same £10 per month for phone, BB, and unlimited eve & w/end calls. Took an hour but am happy now as I have almost no limits etc. Although I don't use P2P much iplayer, youtube and streaming is a must for this house.
