These BT deals are fiendishly difficult to fathom (deliberately - confusion marketing) but this sounds pretty good as things stand at the moment. Feel free to correct my figures - or (please!) to post a better deal.

This deal is for fibre - and it's UNLIMITED. That's important - a lot of BT deals are capped, and going over the cap is expensive and far too easy.

Monthly costs:

Unlimited Infinity 1 £10.99

Monthly line rental £18.99*

AMC - on BT TV FREE

BT Privacy Caller Intro price for 12 months FREE

BT Sport Pack – on BT TV FREE

(Monthly contract cost with offers £29.98)

One-off costs:

TV activation fee £10

Infinity activation fee £49

Home Hub delivery charge £7.95

So for Unlimited Infinity 1, monthly line rental, BT Sport, AMC, Caller Display, it's £29.98 pm = £359.76 over the full year.

Add £66.95 one-off costs = £426.71

£262.75 TCB/Mastercard to come off that, reducing cost to £163.96 over the year (£13.67 pm) with a decent, well-reviewed, new BT Smart Hub router thrown in for good measure.

Need to go through Topcashback to get this deal, and these prices, of course.

*Lower prices still if you pay upfront for your line rental - reduces costs by £1.90 pm

****One additional point worth noting if you don't want to switch immediately - the final screens allow you the opportunity to delay the switch by several weeks. The default switch time is around a fortnight.****

Above now amended to take account of TCB changes to cashback - increased to £215.25 cashback + £100 Mastercard (£315.25 in total) but you need to add a £5 pm SIM

BT Mobile 500MB Plan - 200 minutes, unlimited texts, 500mb data

If you don't want the SIM, go through Quidco for £140 cashback + £100 Mastercard.

If any of my calculations are wrong (entirely possible!) I'll be happy to correct them. If there are better deals out there (also entirely possible) please post them.

Looks good to me. Be interested to see if anyone can post a better deal or should be HOT

Me too. Impossible to tell whether this sort of deal is any good or not without the usual HUKD debate. There may well be better deals out there.

BT customer service is appalling by the way - probably the worst. You're unlikely to need it, but if you do there are always ways to cut through it.

If you add a SIM cashback increases by £52.50 - the cheapest SIM is £5 per month, so the net cost for 12 months is only £7.50- they usually also give an Amazon voucher with SIM deals (though the last offer ended on the 1 september) further bringing the net cost down

I'm getting Vodafone fibre fast broadband as soon as my SKY contract runs out so I will have great broadband no line rental & it costs £25 nobody needs a landline unless your of an older generation which is understandable, I don't watch sport so not a good deal for me, I've currently got free Sky broadband (not fast) but it's free all I'm paying is for the line rental £17.99 & I'm still able to use the Sky pause rewind record functions through they're BOX I was paying approximately £45 but never really watched they're to services but I do miss the fibre Internet as the copper (telephone line broadband) is sluggish if
your using multiple devices ie downloading games or films as well as browsing the Internet, great if your on a shoestring budget or just looking to cut costs.

Seems to be showing £12.50 for Unlimited Infinity 1 for me.

You still need a landline for Vodafone ;).

TV activation fee £10
Infinity activation fee £49
Home Hub delivery charge £7.95

These rip-off charges by BT - what a joke. Wellm it would be a joke if it was not so expensive. You can tell that all MPs get their broadband and Sky type TV for free - at our expense - can't you and they are probably totally unaware of the BT rip-off charges.

Coincidentally, I've been looking at BT beacause my Sky deal is ending in October and I agree with most of your figures except for the Unlimited Fibre 1 which appears to be £12.50 rather than the £10.99 you suggest. Which one of us has it wrong? :-)

10% can be saved on the line rental by paying the year up-front.

You do not need to pay line rental with Vodafone Broadband, however at £25/mth a cashback deal works out cheaper.

vodafone.co.uk/bro…and

Print or pdf a copy of any offer on the BT site that you go for. In the last few months they have blamed system errors for 5 mistakes they have made with my orders. You will need the paperwork trail to back up your claim. So far they have honoured their offers, but I had to chase them each time.

@tawse57 - anyone who looks at the headline price and doesn't take into account any additional charges is really missing the point. It's the total cost of a deal that is the deciding factor, not the cost of the individual parts. After all, would you really complain about the postage if you discovered a brand new gadget that you wanted for £4.99 with £14.00 postage when everyone else is selling the same gadget for £19.99 post free?

Same here with free sky Internet. Contract run's out in November and was looking to go with BT infinity again but I will look at Vodafone seen as you don't need a landline

Another £3.50 for calls package a month would have to be added to that to receive the tcb at the rate of £162

You're right. Changes when going through Topcashback.

Anyone use BT sims? Are they any good? Seems like it might be worth the extra cashback.
Edited by: "chris88" 4th Sep 2016

BT=EE so should be pretty good coverage, is generally the best option locally here

Thanks for confirming the £10.99, I went straight to the BT site.

If there is anyone reading this thread that has renewed a deal with BT for a second year, can you please let us know your experience when you negotiated for that second year? Did they give you much hassle or did they just agree? Many thanks for any light that gets shed on this.

Sky have, without any argument, just told me that they will willingly extend my contract for another year at the same price as I am currently paying - £20.88 total per month for 'phone, 36Meg unlimited fibre and E+WE calls

Actually you do, it's just part of the £25.

I got BT cashback a year & six months ago on my account. Will I still get cashback? Is there a time period between each one anyone know? Can't seem to fine any information on the website about it.

Does anyone know how long you need to have been away from BT for to be classed as a new customer? Been with them for 9 months but not happy with the price increase or speeds.

Anybody here happen to have any experience with the SSE cashback from TCB? Showing as 'confirmed' but not yet payable.

Not sure how great a risk it is jumping ship from SSE (got a free pass out) to BT so far as the SSE cashback's concerned.

I moved to SSE, who totally screwed the move up (long story), so I moved to VM and still got my cash back.

I'm not bothered about the heat (until HUKD starts paying people based on deal heat :D) but on the basis that so far nobody's pulled this deal to shreds I'm starting to think it might be worthwhile - and I'm the OP!

Still time, though - any better deals out there to be had before I make the switch?

Nope, the free weekend calls are all you need for the higher cashback

A couple more questions looking for answers please.

1) can you tell BT when you want the service to start so that Sky (or anyone else) doesn't charge for an early contract termination?

2) has anyone actually taken this exact BT deal and can confirm that you actually get the £162.75 rather than a lesser amount because it's not a monthly paid television service?

Thank you!

Yes I switched a couple of weeks ago from the dreaded SSE , took the free weekend calls and free tv and at the time I got 155 cashback and 125 card, already received the card and cashback tracked in a couple of hours

Did the SSE cashback get paid?

yes got the sse cashback day i switched , already in the bank

So is it £11.77pm all in?

Interesting
.......... ??.....

Parents phone line is with BT, but Sky ADSL for the internet. Wonder if they'll allow the deal.....

So tempting... is it worth losing my 152Mb Virgin Media that I'm currently playing £35 a month for on its own (no TV or phone)?

My summary of BT after being with them for years at multiple properties:

Internet speed is good and reliable but you pay a premium for it. If something goes wrong, their call centres can be a bit ****
