They can’t keep up with virgin media Broadband min is 100mbs !


Once you have been with virgin and then bt you will realise its not all about speed, i went from 200mb, reboot router every single day, phone virgin once a week, cut outs nonstop, generally garbage, to bt 70mb not a single problem, in 2y.

Apparently it 67mbs, ofcom tested it at 60mbs.

I swear infinity 1 and 2 were faster? so much for competition. Looks like this year going to be expensive for bb again...

What struck me about BT was how they quietly dropped the inclusive weekend calls package when my existing contract was coming to an end.

They detailed what my current contract and what they were prepared to offer should I recontract, but no mention at all of the weekend calls.

Look, I'm using my mobile to make calls, but this is a very important point of principle, because it's coming across that I will continue to enjoy the package I had before, but actually taking away a core feature without mentioning it. Anyone else without their eyes fully open could have missed this.

Also I see now that BT's contracts are a very long 24 months with an annual inflation index price increase built-in so you can't ditch and switch mid contract any more.

A word of warning, don't leave it to the last day to renew your contract. As you are billed in advance you will find the payment already applied without my discounts (in my case double what I was paying the previous month) and have to wait the following month to get it recreditid.

Does anyone know how many days before your contract end date that you can leave without penalty?

This country is so backward regarding broadband, mobile phone networks, TV etc.

I don't know why 5g is being pushed when 3g, 4g is still crud in many areas.

8k is starting to be promoted when HD/4k has hardly been a success.

I think you can give them 14 days notice - but there's probably someone better informed than me.
I'm going to move from BT to Vodafone for BB and two mobiles at the end of the month

To add to @jaddy 's comment, Im also finding similar stories with virgin moving from bt. Though I been with virgin and expected some inconsistencies. Virgin uploads and ping are quite slow.

Vodafone have a new router now, make sure you get that one. No issues with Vodafone BB for me and much cheaper too if you have mobiles with them

I also had the same thing with my mobile, once 3 went to pot, i jumped ship, virgin are just all about look how fast we are, fantastic, not quite when my streaming cuts out, i know loads of people who ditched virgin and went elsewhere, virgin were good once, not now. in this day and age we need rock solid then the speed, its pointless if it never works.
Signed up to this yesterday,Also had 2 SIM cards...
£125 Quidco for broadband
£85 Quidco for each sim
£80 reward card
Certainly a critic of BT and their customer service in the past but we now have the Superfast Fibre 2 package, as a continuation from our last contract. At the beginning of a 24 mth contract paying £21pm including line rental. I've dropped TV and sport service with them now too so this is all we're paying through them.
We are on virgin media 200 mbs, no TV no house phone £42.00 pm, keeps buffering keep phoning them up, so highly tempted to move

Do it, i put up with there garbage for 6m, it was that bad i had a full refund every month, still left as it was unusable, they string you along, im on 70mb with bt and pay £23.99pm, its rock solid for me,
All this Virgin bashing! Had their 200mb line for ages and never had any issues at all. Currently 218Mbps down and 20Mbps up via WiFi. I only use their router in modem mode but I’d never dream of joining bt esp at their prices. Never pay more than £32pm on retention deals

Out of interest, how did you get the Quidco cashback? I thought the only way to get the reward card was through an affiliate link so I wasn't sure how to get the Quidco too?

Some broadband providers do pay for your early leave charges. So if you switch provider before you current contract finished, your new provider can pay only upto a curtain amount. I think BT would pay upto £300 and sky would pay up to £200, depends on the package. There are other providers who do the same with different amount, a little research would make it more clear. I think you would have to send your last bill that includes the charges to your new provider and they credit your account or may transfer to acc. Hope that helps

Thank you, but I know when you switch gas/electricity suppliers that have an early exit penalty, if it's within 50 days of the end date it's penalty free.

BT can often hike the price at the end of the contract and yet you don't want to get fined for leaving too early either, that's why it'll be good to know where you would stand officially.
cold from me, i just left bt when i was paying £44.00 per month and £22.50 for sky, left bt early and sky paid £69 for leaving,my new deal with sky is £39 per month with anytime calls sky tv ,line rental, speed is about 58mbs which is ok for me

I think with broadband there are no penalty charges, if you leave early you just pay your remaining contract amount. I know this with BT but with other providers not sure. But as with gas/elec you are told early exit fees, am sure if it was with broadband you would be told the same.

So presumably this means that even if I leave one day before the end day of my contract I will not get a pro rata refund of those unused days of the final month of the contract? And if I'm out of contract I will be subject to paying the higher rate until switching day? That would mean if I don't switch precisely on the last day of my contract, I'm going to get penalised at both ends, aren't I? I may be only be taking about a couple if quid, but it's a point of principle, isn't it?
Don't count on quidco paying out, it hasnt for the last 2 sims & broadband deal I took out

Need to go through a third party like broadbandgenie or something similar.
Ok! For you lit existing customers just called and managed to get the following without any cash back links and waiting for months: £23.99 for fibre 2 and £30 credit applied to the account , 24 months contract starting today so even sweater as I was 41 days away from renewal
Sky will roll out FTTP later this month so i'm waiting for that, they will offer.

Superfast – 80Mbps (c.20Mbps upload)
Ultrafast 1 – 150Mbps (c.30Mbps upload)
Ultrafast 2 – 285Mbps (c.50Mbps upload)
Yeh because with speeds of about 60mps you wait ages for your BB.
Was going to leave BT for Talktalk but retentions phoned up and offered the superfast (76mbps) desl for £19.99 a month, there is a rpi rise in March but its only around 70p.

What are their prices like? Vodafone Gigafast (via CityFibre, not OpenReach) charges are as follows and the upload speeds are the same as the download speeds:

100 Mbps - £28.00
500 Mbps - £38.00
900 Mbps - £48.00

Did you put your order through with talk talk first and then BT rang you?

My contract is up for renewal next week I’ve been offered:

Superfast 2 23.99 + 9.99 anytime calls + 12.50 for bt sport on sky with HD = £46.48.

Not quite sure if this is a good deal though? I had a better BT sport deal previously which they just won’t budge on anymore

Yes i took deal with Talktalk (had 1 month left on BT) a couple of days later BT retentions phoned and i told them Talktalk were doing their 76mbps deal for £21.95 so the guy offered me the BT 76mbps deal for £19.99, didn't take a calls package but i think BT do a 500 mins to landline or mobile for £5 which should be plenty. Took the deal and cancelled Talktalk, my speeds are always fine with BT.

That’s exactly what they are like with me, I’ve been with them for a good few years now and they don’t seemed to be bothered. I put in a complaint seeing how I had issues with my line during December and told them I’ll leave at renewal so the lady said to call and I’ll be given a great deal. My deal seems pants! I need more discount with bt sport to seem worthwhile but it doesn’t seem like they’re too bothered
