£120 Amazon vouchers via code when taking out EE unlimited broadband & weekend landline calls from £13pm

£13

Found 9th Apr 2014
Another great EE deal, but this one doesn't involve cashback (in the normal sense) and therefore no faffing around with tracking. MoneySavingExpert.com have blagged the promotional code EEHBB120 to get a £120 Amazon voucher sent out by taking out unlimited broadband & weekend landline calls for £2 per month plus line rental. Paying the full year's line rental upfront costs £132 (equivalent to £11 per month), otherwise it's £15.40 monthly.

Although the £2 deal is only for existing customers, even if you have/get a payg SIM with £10 credit on it then you're good to go.

If you pay for a year's line rental then, factoring in the Amazon vouchers, you'll be effectively paying £3 per month, or £7.40 per month if paying line rental monthly.

MSE have not mentioned an expiry date for the code.

Full details are on the link on the right.

You get a £120 Amazon voucher after 3mths. Sent automatically, if you go via this EE deal* link and use code EEHBB120 to get the voucher.

To count as an active EE mobile customer and keep the cheap broadband, you must make a call or send a text once every 90 days.

Plus it's a 12-month contract. To leave early you will need to pay cancellation fees.

I wonder how EE customer service is if things go wrong...........

Its just the traffic shaping that worries me, using sky broadband at peak times is an utter nightmare, 9 am we were getting 6 meg, 5pm we would get 0.4 meg and couldn't do anything, it would be like that until gone 11 pm. Would hate to go through that again, we had to move to BT, constant 6 meg at all times since. My Dad ended up on Sky after they took over whoever he was with, he got it free for 12 months but hes now getting similar problems to what we had, though not quite as bad.

** just to point out I know this isn't Sky but during many complaints to Sky about their disgusting broadband they said it was down to traffic at peak times, I do know people on Sky who never have a problem so who knows why we had it so bad.

Hot if you prefer Quidco has £130 as of last night

I am tied with talktalk for another month
Might just pay early leaving fee and leave those buggers
Called to get a better deal and they were unable to offer me anything

Just started using this horrible service. Traffic shaping is really bad you get 1-10 kb/s downloading speed at peak times.i.e 4:30pm to 1.00 am and on weekends and band holiday 1:30 pm - 1.00 am(during which time most of us use this service). Please avoid if you are going to use the internet between these times.

Agreed - and good luck if you need any technical help from the scripted helpline...

EE traffic shaping is horrendous. The BBC Iplayer is virtually unusable in evenings/weekends.

EE representative called Giles explained to me the benefits of them buying out my Sky broadband and taking over my contract.

Long story short they signed me up to it even though I definitively said no thank you

And it took me 3 afternoons and being on hold forever to sort out

Underhanded company , avoid at all costs

Worst broadband ever. Line drops 7-10 times a day. Monkeys on the otherwise of the line, don't know what they are talking abouts. Keeps blaming area and BT. AVOID!!! Even if it's free!!!

I've been with them two months and have had no problems at all. Torrents are the only thing I notice that go slow, but comes back up at 1:30am until the following evening. I got £136.50 cashback @ topcashback too.

I have only TCB, can anyone with Quidco tell me the current EE cash back rate please. I am seriously considering this offer but the traffic shaping comments above make me very apprehensive, my alternative is talktalk, unfortunately I need a new line and the current talktalk £25 shopping voucher is excluded. I did talk to someone on the EE online help and it would have been far easier if they had a command of English.

My 12 month contract with talktalk ends in 7 weeks, can I sign up now and switch over once my contract ends, to keep my same phone number?

Cheers!

Tried to sign up but they wanted to add a £60 installation fee for a new line, despite me already having a line through Sky.

Was considering EE BB but after reading the appauling reviews and online chatting to a non-English speaking monkey I'll get Talktalk - better the devil you know! Just take a look at the link below:

I read that and thought right that's made my mind up, no way, ill stick with BT, but when you look nearly every provider has as bad reviews. Good to see sky getting the slating they deserve.

im guessing you must be one of the unlucky ones as I have a pretty constant speed of 11mb on sky bb at peak times and goes up to just shy of 14mb outside peak (if find after 8pm) I have a heavy bb usage and all seem stable the only problem I get is it says my wifi connection is unstable

Yeah my brother had Sky BB and never had a problem, we had a nightmare, unusable 4pm to gone midnight, 0.4 meg,
My Dad was on 02 I think and they got took over by Sky not so long ago, they are in a village so was only getting 1.5 meg with 02 anyway but it was steady, and it would play iplayer etc, now with sky exact same problems we had.
We are staying there this weekend and its truly awful, I did a speed check earlier and it was showing 0.5meg, useless, bit like my football team.

Depends on the area I believe! I just ordered EE yesterday with £130 Quidco

sam800, please post back to let us know your to experience with EE from order stage to online use. Great price though with 130 cashback.

The best BB I ever had was o2, I lived in Newcastle 600 Meters from the exchange and got 17 Mbps, the customer service was in NI and they were really good. I moved house as Sky took over and didn't have a house to transfer to. I do believe your distance from the exchange is a large factor in speed. Have a quick search on samknows.com/exc…rch this also gives LLU operator presence, curiously EE isn't mentioned on my Fencehouses exchange but Talktalk is.

Scroll down to "How To Count As An EE Customer to get this deal"

Info was published by MSE but Inactivity Periods on Pay As You Go: How Long for Account Termination and Credit Expiry? does also confirm 180 days. It's always in the best interest to refer to EE as they are the ones who determine the T&C's or any revisions to the services.

£130 TCB at the moment which would be around £136 Amazon vouchers

Had to laugh, one of the only positive reviews comes from someone who transferred from Talktalk, frying pan and fire are the words that spring to mind!!!! I can understand why he thought EE were good if he had talktalk previously.

I've had EE Broadband and home phone for over 6 months now... can't wait to get out of this contract!

The customer service is fine, not had any issues with phone or bills etc. however, they throttle the **** out of the broadband during most normal hours of the day. From about 4pm - 2am on most days it gets to the point where I have to wait 10-15 seconds just to load a Google search.

Most of providers will throttle, but never seen any that are that bad. Sky and one of the TalkTalk packages are the only ones that don't throttle. I'm going to switch to one of those as soon as I cancel EE. If you use the net during peak times, especially with downloads / p2p then be sure to check reviews in regards to throttling / traffic shaping etc. before getting into a 12 month contract.

Btw. I've had Sky before and never had any issues with them so most likely go back. Especially since BE There BB are no longer independent (bought up by Sky I think).

Just commenting to find this thread on Monday. Do you think this will be more reliable than going through TCB?

Also slightly concerned about the switching from Sky £60 charge mentioned above? I'm on LLU with Sky but it's a new build so it's a crap speed.
