Just a heads up to any BT customers who are low data / minutes users.

BT Customers can get a BT Mobile SIM for £5pm (I believe 12 month contract) with 500mb data, 200 minutes and unlimited texts.

Topcashback are currently offering £50.50 cashback on this SIM, BUT reviews are mixed re: tracking - must clear cookies and use a different browser to ensure it tracks. Personally I have never had a problem with cashback tracking but highlighting it to be fair

So that's £5pm x 12 months = £60, minus £50.50 cashback (or more depending on your membership type) = 79p per month overall.

If at least one person benefits I'm happy - enjoy

A good tip from a TCB user was that it should track very quickly, if it doesn't then raise a query straight away, TCB/BT are apparently quick to respond i.e. within the 14 day cooling off period so it there is a tracking problem one can cancel with no loss.

Don't forget, that for those of us without BT broadband, the full price is £10 per month, so TCB brings that down to roughly half price _ it's the cheapest way to get free access to BT wifi and FON by the looks of things, unless someone else has a better idea.
I can get great BT wifi at my workplace, so have been scratching my head to think of the cheapest way to get internet at work and avoid paying the wretched £18.99 monthly fee when I don't want a telephone either at work or home.

Thanks for the up !!! I have signed up and will wait for TCB.
If it doesn't track will cancel within the 14 days .
If it works good value, less than a pound a month .... great
[b]Update £52.50 marked as confirmed in TCB.

People are fickle on HUKD especially especially where cashback is concerned - sometimes happily accepted and voted hot, others times voted cold.

I expect the cold votes are also because it's a measly 0.5gb of data - I posted the deal and I get 10gb which I get through - but for a rare data used eg just for iMessage or similar this would be fine. Furthermore as we know from other deals BT may offer tariff upgrades at no cost.

Happy to be cold as long as someone benefits

It's rather interesting that whenever BT deals are discussed on here, nobody mentions that aspect of it - I can only assume that those who use the internet a lot will just use their mobile phones ?
There's no phone line or broadband where I work in a town centre, but of course one of the neighbours must have a BT hub or something, as the internet reception is fantastic, and so I can use my laptop to do ebay stuff all day long if I want via the FON network, as they give unlimited use.
At home I use a T-Mobile pointer and get it topped up every 6 months through an ebay seller, as T-Mobile were the only ones who still allowed you to use the full month's internet even when the allowance has ended, which is about a week at the moment - there's an awful signal at work otherwise I could just take the pointer there in case anyone wonders why I don't.
So yes, after all that explanation, a brilliant fringe benefit to keep in mind when chosing a broadband provider, is the ability to use free BT internet as long as someone nearby has got BT broadband.

You've literally opened my eyes to something I had never thought of.

So if my neighbour had BT Broadband let's say Infinity 2 so 76mb, I could get the cheapest BT Mobile deal around and that would open up access to use the neighbours connection via BT FON, and I literally would not need my own broadband, line rental etc. Amazing.

I was actually contemplating earlier in this world of increasingly powerful hubs, gigabit powerline, wifi repeaters etc. how long it will be until say one home in five actually has broadband and then they share the use and cost of it with the two neighbours either side?! It is surely feasible right now?! As long as those houses don't mind having no landline - and apart from the benefit to credit scoring of a home phone, what real point is there any more?

Great tips even if the 22 hot voters so far have been cancelled out by colds :).
