I thought that it was £100 on both Quidco and Topcashback at the moment and you get 3 MONTHS FREE from O2. So unless you can combine the Daily Mail offerings with the Quidco/Topcashback, I would say it wasn't a great deal.

I am not voting either way, as not everybody uses Quidco or Topcashback.

We haven't had any problems with O2 - very happy with service.

So is this for new customers only? Just a bit confused as it says '...saving existing customers a minimum of £44!'

Don't listen to a word what Customer Services says, they are useless. Do this online via Quidco or Topcashback and you will see the 3 Months Free is there. I should know I've done this for myself and most of my family.

O2 Customer Services are pants when it comes to giving accurate information. They tried to fob me off with a refurbished Router claiming that they never send customers 'used' products, only Brand New stuff. When I pointed out the the box was a plain white one and on the side it said 'Grade A'; she didn't have an answer.

Proves my point about O2 Customer Services; it clearly says New and Existing Customers on the Daily Mail blurb.

O2 is trying to prevent you going via Quidco/Topcashback to save themselves the money. Trust me. Recently I was told by O2 Customer Services that they don't have any relationship with Quidco/Topcashback. I pointed out the website and asked them to have a look and also expalin how they have paid me several cashback payments over the last couple of years; again they had no answer.

I think the statement in the daily mail blurb refers to existing o2 "mobile" customers.

Wrong - the 3 months free offer has finished

If you're happy to go via Quidco and risk getting cashback - buy online

If you want to play safe an guarantee you will get the saving - phone up and get 6m free - either way its a pretty good offer and a great product

Wrong again my friend!

Existing 'O2 mobile' customers can save £44.04
Non O2 mobile customers save at least £73.38

tpol obviously struggles with reading....

yeah, the O2 3 months free deal, whether or not accessed via Quidco, finished just over a week ago I think. Shame, though it may be reintroduced of course, as it's been run before.

Assuming this is subject to a 12 month agreement, and not any longer.

Edit - is this save x number of tokens, starting today, or just buy 1 newspaper only and get it free for 6 months. I despise this paper, and some of their stances, and couldn't face seeing it over several days.

I got 3 months free + £70 quidco a few months back, paying about £30 for a years BB.

Thanks, I obviously didn't have my glasses on, lol.

In my defence, in regards to the 3 months offer, I assumed it was still on as I was offered this by O2 customer services when I put in my cancellation notice last night. In fact he offered me 3 Months (which I assumed was the standard anyway) and also reduced by monthly charge from £7.34 to £4.21. Apparently I had accumulated this discount by virtue of the fact I had been a customer for 13 months.

In regards to the New/Old customer thing, same defence. I was offered 3 months free and almost a 50% discount as an existing customer. On this basis this is a better offer than the 6 months free, in opinion of course.

The pro package you will save around £102 if your with o2 or £134 if your not with o2.

As someone who's watched the cost of o2 home broadband for a couple of years, perhaps I can help clarify for people.

The correct Daily Mail wording would appear to be:

"From Wednesday December 9, you can claim six months free O2 Home Broadband, with unlimited downloads - saving existing [o2 mobile] customers a minimum of £44 [6*£7.34=£44.04 ie Standard sub for qualifying o2 mobile customers who'd get their monthly discount]"

ie Requires you to phone o2 and sign up that way - ie no online cashback - and based on the text only relates to the three LLU packages (not Access, which many people would not currently recommend signing up to anyway)..

Typically you would be better off with the current Quidco/TopCashBack cashback offers for signing up ONLINE (this Daily Mail offer is a PHONE offer quoting the offer, ie NOT online and NO online cashback opportunity), but the 6m free deal (without cashback) would be better for two groups of potential subscribers:

1) PAYG only for o2 home discount
IF you would only be topping up an o2 PAYG to blag the c£5/qtr net saving (ie top-up 1x£10, save 3xc£5) - ie you wouldn't use the top-up credit, then the Daily Mail phone 6m free would be a better deal on Std/Prem/Pro as the 6m free w/be assured and would mean less cash out over that first 12 months.

2) new PRO subscriber - is slightly cheaper with the 6m free (instead of £100 cashback) and the 6m free w/be assured at sign-up whereas cashback is only assured when it's in your bank account.

That end date doesn't appear on the Daily Mail page - what's your source as a matter of interest?

The plus side for the pro package is you get the N Draft router, much better than their G router; faster speed if you can benefit from your exchange (do a check using o2 website); and a static IP address (great if you need it, normally this would set you back £4 per month).

Well the PRO for its £40-50-60 quid more over first year is only really going to be of any real value IF you have a really short/good line. The reason to want Pro's Annex M ADSL is for extra UPLOAD speed (ie upto c3.5 instead of c1.3Mbps) BUT that will come at SOME cost to downstream UNLESS you have a really good/short line (which some lucky *ers do have eg see this guy reporting just yesterday on ThinkBroadband
forums.thinkbroadband.com/o2/…tml )

Otherwise you could potentially BUY yourself a 'n' box for the price differential. That said as you'll know Pro gives other perks of more SMS & more McAfee & "priority" support. AND if during your first couple of weeks you think better of it (and your line proves to be not good enough) o2 will let you downgrade.

PS: Thanks re confirmation of how know deadline.

Thanks.

Have signed up to the Premium package after Sky finally pushed me over the edge. I was happy with Sky, until all of a sudden my speeds dropped. I gave them a month to sort it out and they failed...

Looking forward to getting O2 activated now... pity I'm only a month into my 2 year Vodafone mobile phone contract though! lol

:thumbsup:

If you cant get the LLU package dont even think about signing up to the access package even if its free not unless you want dial up speeds.
