Tesco Broadband "Unlimited" £2.50 + £13.75 Line Rental (Total: £16.25 - £35 Quidco = £13.33 per month)

dazbradburydazbradbury

Seems like Tesco dropped the price of their broadband, and thought people shopping around for a new provider might be interested.

£35 Quidco Cashback (97.1% tracked) also available, making the monthly line rental the equivalent of £13.33.

Alternatively, £35.35 cashback is available via TopCashBack.

Tesco Broadband with Inclusive Evening & Weekend calls:
* "Unlimited" downloads (100GB Fair Use - does not include normal use such as browsing, emailing, VoIP, or iPlayer)
* No set up fee on 12 month contract
* 30 day rolling contract available (£40 set up cost)
* 3 Clubcard points for every £1 you spend
* NEW! Pay for your package with Clubcard rewards
* Inclusive Wireless Router*
* UK call centre
* Keep your existing number*
* Inclusive UK Landline calls (eve & weekends)†

***
The 12-month deal is available until 31 May to members of the U.K. supermarket giant's loyalty scheme. To qualify for the offer, customers must also rent their landline from Tesco at a cost of £13.75 per month.

Although advertised as unlimited, the price plan is subject to a fair usage policy of 100 GB per month. Customers who exceed this limit for two consecutive months despite being warned over their heavy usage face having their service suspended or even terminated.

Still, at £16.25 per month in total, Tesco Broadband's new tariff is cheaper than comparable unlimited price plans from some of the U.K.'s other fixed broadband providers including TalkTalk, BT, Virgin Media and Sky.

    For people wanting more info about the Fair Usage Policy:

    Tesco Broadband Products offer our customers the flexibility of unlimited downloads per month, however, in order to provide a fast and reliable service to all our customers, this feature is subject to our Fair Usage Policy.

    We will only impose a limit on the use of Tesco Broadband to prevent unusual use and abuse. If a customer regularly downloads in excess of normal levels of consumer consumption, for example, 100GB per month, we may do one or both of the following:

    (a) ask you to moderate your use;

    (b) impose further charges in respect of your atypical or abusive use calculated per megabyte. You will be informed of these charges before they are incurred.

    Where we suspect abuse or breach of this Fair Use Policy, we will try to contact you before taking action in accordance with this paragraph.

    In the case of severe abuse, as reasonably determined by us, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your use of Tesco Broadband. We will again try to contact you before doing so.

    In addition, we monitor the network to make sure that very heavy users do not impact the majority of our customers. Only a very small number of customers will be defined as “heavy users”, and this will not include normal use such as browsing, emailing, VoIP, or iPlayer. We may restrict their download speed to ensure that all of our customers receive a consistent and reliable connection.

    Unlimited my @rse, I'm FUPed off with FUP's. The word Unlimited should be banned if its not Unlimited!

    I've been on Tesco for a month now... BB speed is about 12MB. Only downside is the phone call prices (off hand I thinks its about 12p for a call set up fee, so every phone call set up fee + length of call charge).

    Reviews I read before joining warned of their **** poor router being the root of all the broadband issues and advised where possible it would be better to use your own. I got the info (login/password) I needed from Tesco to be able to use my own.

    If the "unlimited" is 100gb and you're streaming to your TV then that isnt too good

    just another example of rip off Britain

    depends on quality of the stream... I use just under 2gb for a footy game

    So not really unlimited at all then. Extremely COLD.

    ----

    Don't use this if you stream films or TV, use torrents or play online games on ANY console. I easily use over 120gb / month from doing a casual mixture of all these.

    Who is going to use more than 100gb per month! For most people it will be 'unlimited'. I'm with Virgin who told me a couple of weeks ago my broadband speed is going up at no extra cost then send me a letter this week telling me their price is going up by £1.50!! Will definately be looking at this deal, just wish they'd stop forcing phone lines on everyone, I never use my landline.

    Just wondering, has anyone changed providers recently? How long does it take and did you end up without service for any length of time? I'm getting a bit fed up with talktalk and thinking about changing but the thought of the hassle and disconnection is putting me off. This Tesco deal seems reasonable but whats the customer service like?

    I'm seriously considering this. I'm moving soon and will need one. Any site I can check to verify if Tesco offers broadband in my new area?

    Does anybody found better deals on Line rental and home broadband ?

    I do love the Virgin broadband but as I have a contract mobile the land line is a waste of time. I'm out of contract in a week and my current half price land line deal is ending so I'm going to call them up and maybe ditch the land line and drop the speed from 30 meg to 10 meg. Then in a couple of months they are going to double the speed to 20 meg anyway.

    There should be little or no down time at all when you switch, if both ISP's do thier stuff properly you shouldn't even notice it's switched!

    It's the bit about both ISP's doing their stuff properly that bothers me, Virgin Media messed up so badly when I moved house it was a nightmare, I guess I should have a little faith but being passed around Indian call centers with talktalk had me close to self harming!

    Just switched to Plusnet for line rental and BB. £9.50/month line rental and BB £3.24/month for 1st 12 months and hopefully £50 cashback from TCB.So effectivly free BB for the year.Downside maybe BB download limited to 40Gb/month, but plenty for me and English call centre with free number for technical support if needed.
