is this for 12 months only? does price change after 12 months?
Wish O2 offered free mobile calls on weekends like post office.
#2
Do you have to pay BT line rental on top?
#3
Looking for this sort of deal as a new customer when I come off cable soon - sounds like O2 will be worth a look :)

Just be a bit careful booked via quidco all rounder package which worked out @ £19.91/month (£12.25 for broadband + £7.66 line rental pay as you use option)

Also as I had no BT telephone box it was going to cost £86.81 which was being offset by quidco I hoped.

However after initial emails and confirmations got a call from o2 call centre to say the I would not be connected to closest BT exchange which was o2 enable, allowing subscription to to one of the three highly publicised packages (Basics/All Rounder/The Works) but rather I would be connected to an exchange several miles away which was not o2 enabled which meant only option for me was to go for access package, which not only cost approx £26 but would no doubt would have also resulted in quidco being declined.

I have contacted a couple of other ISPs and they state I would be contacted to closest exchange.

So me thinks boys from o2 are trying it on a bit.

where did you get the info from the o2 are now on the reporting list ???? Ive not heard anything thats the only reason Im staying with o2 anymore and Im off to bt just so I can have free wifi minutes

O2 are a con, becarefull signed up last year for my father, and they kept sending nasty emails saying he was over using it, then he was banned, yesterday they sent email asking him reonsider and to come back. I was paying £22.50 for the unlimited package as a birthday present for him. when you do find the details of the package the limit is 40GB of downloads. and the speed was only 3-4mb on a landline, when it was supposed to be 24mb

If anyones knows of a truly unlimited inexpensive fast broadband in the Lincoln area, for a landline, tried O2, Orange and TalkTalk

Glad am with V I R G I N C A B L E

Go to the O2 broadband forums and read the complaints.
#11
I got this deal recently. Had o2 broadband for a few years now with no issues.
#12
On new contracts they've started traffic shaping.
#13
rubbish just transferred away from them
the new contracts are all limited to 100GB per month plus the speed is capped to a ridiculous 10-25kbps when you download torrent
#14
Been with them for a few years now and I'm had nothing but good experiences with them. Their new packages are subject to a fair usage policy, and this differs for each package: (This is different to the previous packages that were available 6-8 months ago)

Basics: 20GB / month
All rounder: 100GB / Month
The Works: 250GB / Month

If you exceed it you'll get a written warning (email or so) stating it and that it should be decreased. In "Extreme circumstances" they do state they may terminate or suspend your service.

(source, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4)

Also in response to richgit69, O2 don't offer 24mbps connections, their maximum is 20 but will differ depending on the distance between the line and the exchange. This is the same for all broadband connections through a phone line.

Sucks for me though - I incorporated my BT line 6 days ago - which I held off to get this offer :(.

Traffic shaping and download caps? Is this confirmed?
I've had o2 broadband now for over 3 years, and the main reason I stayed with them was that there wasn't any traffic shaping/download restrictions

Someone mentioned new contracts only - does that mean my existing contract is fine and exempt from the new measures?

If it isn't , guess eventually I'll have to move to somewhere else - is there anyone who still does unlimited and means it without speed restrictions/download quotas?

I'm with o2 broadband at present and have a bt line - if I cancelled my BT line and my o2 broadband could I take up this offer?or not as im a previous customer / and would I get some new nasty restrictions
#18
austinc, whats this anti p2p software they use everyones on about? I thought they just filter the type of traffic?

using encrypted incoming and outgoing makes it harder for the type of traffic to be determined

On face value, this deal is definitely a bargain! However, O2 are likely to offer these good deals to get all the old customers onto their new packages where they traffic shape/speed throttle. It is more of a 'hot deal' to stay on your current contract, pay however much you have been paying for the past year, and enjoy broadband without any limits.
#20
that's what I was wondering avecmon I only pay 13 quid a month or something for the fastest possible, suppose it's worth leaving it

rather not be on some new rubbish plan

All old customers are going to get letters in the post, our bills are going up buy a few quid (in April). My O2 has been pretty hit and miss over the past year so I'm starting to look elsewhere.

New contracts only, but they just put the price up on your legacy package.

I posted this deal two weeks ago and it got moved to misc as its not guaranteed
#24
ahh yes colesi and alternate I got a letter saying it's going up by 3 quid/month

as ever, everything's going up in price , yet my wages arent :)
#25
you torrent moaners crack me up. get on usenet and use SSL, you wont need a peer blocker either and will get downloads far faster

Edited By: hodondo on Feb 27, 2011 01:04
#26
browsing is fine but it seems any download thats not authorised server its capped most of y stuff is phone firmwares etc nothing pirate currently taking 2hrs to dl 175mb
#27
hodondo - you can still use torrents, but use encryption i.e. SSL or if you want invest in a VPN or some kind of proxy to tunnel the traffic through , make it appear as SSH traffic or something (although you could tell i's not SSH due to the volume of data i guess)

also I thought peerblock works to block IPs of anti p2p companies / RIAA etc connecting to your IP in the swarm and seeing if you're transfer (up/down), they can still see you're part of the swarm but not what's happening..I think

I don't see how peerblock could stop ISPs seeing the actual traffic as it still goes through their networks
#28
wanderer , sure that's not the source site though? I've never really had any issues with o2 and any kind of shaping/quotas
#29
Browsing, Online Gaming and Downloading (not Torrents or P2P) is all fine for me anyway. Torrents are a no go now, i used to get 500-700kbps now with the traffic management im lucky if it goes over 25kbps. P2P speeds are still acceptable if your downloading small files *cough* music *cough*

You will be lucky to find a ISP that does not have some sort of TM policy that makes having 20mb+ speeds pointless.
#30
Retro89, are you with o2?

that's the problem, they all boast 20mbit/50mbit etc, but who cares? If Im limited/throttled to some pathetic amount then I can't even make full use of my 50mbit 'unlimited' broadband, just means you can reach your quota quicker!!

The problem imo, lies with the fact that broadband has become so cheap, when Virgin was NTL we were paying 40/50 (can't quite remember ) for 512kbit, 200 quid for a 3com cable modem and paid for installation

now its 10x faster, 5x cheaper, free modem, free installation, so EVERYONE has broadband, as a result they endup having to cap download limits/traffic shape,

how about not offering these high speeds if you can't actually cope with the traffic? they just get more and more customers on the same saturated network, boasting amazing speeds, but can't deliver
#31
I was on O2 for several years (as I had a mobile) and their cheap unlimited internet was a bargain.

However last month they began traffic shaping / throttling peer to peer and newsgroups.

Its basically the same deal as with Virgin you get 'unlimited download' just not at the speeds they advertise.

I would say its good if your just browsing the internet, but if you like to download then go somewhere else!
#32
Thinking of switching from O2 20mb (only getting 14mb) to Virgin 50mb.
Mainly due to paying more at the moment for Sky TV & O2 Phone & BB than with a Virgin bundle.

Thoughts?
#33
K1LLER HORNET not really sure, I haven't used virgin for 3/4 years now, only had 10mbit back then i think - my dad has 50mbit though, and hes said to me before how slow it is, NTL(virgin) are all over traffic shaping and limiting downloads - he even had a letter saying he downloaded too much in one period...

If you aren't having any problems with your o2 bb at (like myself) i'd stay with them for now
#34
Ditto Darkvortex,
Been with O2 BB since they started reselling Be BB but since Dec the speed has been erratic as they started to forgot that one of their main selling points was truly unlimited BB with no throttling.

Cancelled it as they played dumb to having any knowledge of shapping/throttling so while I decide who to go with next, I've installed Jokisoft on my mobile and are thethering from my O2 mobile for my internet access. Making the most of my unlimited Mobile Data Tarrif before 02 kick me off that one!

Moved to misc as it's a retention type offer and will not be applicable to all. However if you can find a deal link, I'll be happy to move back to the previous forum.

Thanks for sharing your tip and experiences so far.
#36
Zoomster, I thought o2 mobile broadband access is also subject to a fair use, and I thought tethering isn't strictly allowed?

There doesn't seem to be ANYONE left who's truly unlimited without any kind of caps/restrictions!!
#37
I'm on the O2 All rounder - and yes they do cap you on p2p during peak hours - Mon-Sat 16.00 - 00.00
On Sundays it seem's to be from 13.00 - 00.00
However, just leave your torrents running and it should in time pick up but will reduce in speed again. it's the biggest pain in the ****!

Yes, im on the All Rounder package.

It has annoyed me going from ISPs that originally went from unrestricted connections, then they tried putting download Caps on your internet which people got angry about so they removed the caps, only for them to bring the Caps back along with Fair Usage and Traffic Shaping.

BeThere broadband is the only ISP that i have found not to have Traffic Management in place, but how long will it be until they put one on.
#39
I've been with O2 for a long time, and rang them to see about adding landline service. they said they would have to reduce my monthly transfer limit from 40Gb to 20Gb since I am on a BT exchange that has not been sorted yet. so check that, if you are thinking of moving.

my best deal turned out to be with plusnet, landline rental, caller display, calls anytime included, 60Gb monthly usage, midnight - 8am genuinely unlimited, about 35 quid per month.

I'm just in the process of moving so can't say how good plusnet are yet.
#40
Retro o2 use the be network though , and I thought o2 claim tyhey dont shape or anything, must all be recent

I'll have to test my connectin at various times

They should spend money upgrading the network, not increasing speeds but making it pointless, everything online now uses more bandwidth than years ago, youtube, on demand services such as the iPlayer, online gaming etc

so they should really improve the network performance, at a minimum there should be no restrictions/shaping for UK -> UK transfers
