sounds like a good deal to me, i.e. the Brilliant Broadband package. (I don’t see the value for money in going for any fibre option)

@groovygraham worth adding it includes line rental too ! Looks a good deal to me ,thx
Good value considering anytime calls are included.and actually unlimited without traffic management.

I've had fibre for almost 1.5 years from BT and can't imagine life without it. I was sceptical at first as to whether fibre would make much difference to me over ADSL2 but as soon as I used it I was blown away by the speed.

I’m with TalkTalk 36mbs broadband anytime calls 24/7 and mobile sim with 250 mins and 500mb date all for £22 a month. Have the occasional outage, otherwise fine and dandy. Also have TalkTalk tv box which I received free by paying 1 months (£5) TV package sub.
Looks like a great deal and perfect timing for the BT switch
Great offer so thanks for posting, its a 12 month deal for the free calls so the 8.99 charge applies at the end. I have just done the change from plusnet, since I learned that BT have been debiting me £5 per month for my poxy email address I wont have any further dealing with any BT company.
Yes I'm moving from EE to this deal they said they couldn't match this deal in future I won't be joining the bt group they keep increasing prices to fund their sports rights
Works out at £17.50 per month for the 36mb fibre if you factor in the cashback. Great price and I would go for it if it's still around on the 10th July which is the earliest I can sign up for another provider.
Excellent package, thanks for posting OP
Nice find op, tempted. Seems like some deals are appearing now a lot of Bt customers are looking around after the price hike.
Sorry for asking, is it worth moving as coming to end with virgin 200mb ? Thanks
Do they have a cooling off period, I'm moving house and don't know how good the speed is where I'm going as the other people have virgin?
I’m looking to ditch plusnet been with them for years but fed up with their speed throttling - should get 36mb down 9mb up, but down to 24/7mb again, you phone them they increase for while then drop again. Does anyone know how good these are?
I live in a remote area. 4Km from the village fibre/ADSL junction box. From that junction it is a galvanic connection to the property (copper/steel).
Originally I was on ADSL as the junction box did not support fibre and could get slow internet (emails/surfing etc) but couldn't realistically download anything.
Once 'fibre' arrived at the fibre box in the village, I switched to fibre even though the last 'hop' to my property is galvanic. I can now download films, stream etc. albeit downloads are fairly slow, everything is okay!
However, I've now had 'fibre' from Sky and Talktalk and due to the distances explained above I can only ever get 3.3Mbps download. Physics!
If I change back to ADSL will my downloads etc revert back to how it was pre the fibre being enabled to the village junction box?
I can't seem to sign up with them at the moment as it says broadband unavailable. It was showing all packages as being available when I looked earlier in the week but now that I have given bt my notice it is showing as unavailable.

All the other providers can do it apart from now and sky. We had Sky a few years ago too.

Really confused as to why it is not showing up.

Not worth it.. was with talk talk prior to joining Virgin 100mb and I just couldn’t wait for TalkTalk to end... customer service was and the Internet speed Would join any other provider apart from TalkTalk. They were the worst

Apparently there are a certain number of cheaper fibre connections that BT sell off to the competition but there's only so many per postcode and you have to wait for them to get more.
Had to change my mum's internet out in the sticks for £30 a month fibre rather than all the juicy £15 including cashback deals last year for this same reason.
Am I missing something? NOW uses sky ? Why are people saying Talk talk?

1. They do not offer Brilliant in my area.
2. The speed of ADSL is 0.5 to 3 mbps in my area (super slow).
3. Now TV charge for 1571 voice mail - a stealth £1 per month.
4. Their Irish call centre is really poor. The India call centres are better.
5. No choice of activation date, so can get hit with early termination charge.
6. But, a good deal!
7. Of course, you leave after 1 year.
8. The router is poor and only has 2 etheret ports.

5. No choice of activation date, so can get hit with early termination charge.

That is a deal breaker unless you have about 2 weeks for the contract to end or are already out of contract.

Most providers are flexible to allow you to choose a date in the near future.

Anyone have any experience of Now Broadband regarding flexibility of transfer dates.

Or those who have taken up the offer what dates are you being given.

They allocate a date. You get no choice. I took out Now TV for my mother. I have been through all their misdvertising. They agreed to credit £12 for 1571 voicemail as they accepted their site was misleading (I took screen shots). As far as I know only BT allow selection of date. Even Plusnet did not offer a date of choice, nor Talktalk.

They will even say... if your speed is advertised as 40mbps and you only get 20mbps this is because you may have two devices connected to the broadband. Each device reduces the speed in proportion. 10 devices means 4mbps.
Amazing response. This is the wonders of their Irish call centre staff.

If you like BT, leave and join Vodafone, take advantage of their 30 day cancellation and go back to BT.

Check your dates by going through the order and do not complete it. I think it is 10 days (or may be 14, I cannot remember). They give the earliest possible.

The good thing is 0870 is included, so effectively you have free calls worldwide!
Call your friends around the globe with no extra charge. Good for older people who do not use Skype/WhatsApp etc

Yes. ADSL will still be taken from the exchange, whereas "fibre" is taken from the box in the village.

Thanks a lot - very informative. Have negotiated a good deal with BT but not had confirmation email as yet. Have been advised to wait for 24 hrs. Still have time to make the switch. I think Now Broadband is out of reckoning for me.

Vodafone - it may have to be, will check what they offer.

So even though the fibre runs from the exchange to the box in the village, they use 'copper' to transmit from the exchange to the property (maybe a junction within the box in the village),. They don't take fibre from exchange to box in village then switch it over to fibre? I presume not as I suppose they would need a mechanism within the box in the village to perform the technology change? I presume this is why it would be ADSL all the way from the exchange?

I've had exactly the same issue. Sometimes the providers website states it's available, other times not. The annoying thing is I was once with Sky before switching to a good deal with TalkTalk but now SKy state that they cannot provide the service to my property. I've called them and yet they can only go by 'what the system states'.....

Another question Jonny4911 - despite whichever 'medium' I choose (ADSL or Fiber), I am quoted the same slow speed to my area. But, why when I had ADSL I could not stream programmes etc whereas when I switched to Fibre, I could?

The original copper run from exchange > village > your property is still how your phone (voice) line works. And this is what ADSL runs over, from the exchange.

When "fibre" is installed a run of fibre is run from the exchange to a new box either attached to or very close to the original BT cabinet in the village your phone line is connected to.
This box only handles VDSL (what bt call fibre) which can handle higher speeds at closer distances, which is why you do get some improvement Vs ADSL.
When you order fibre broadband, some wire is run from the old cabinet to the new cabinet to connect you to it.

So if you switch back to ADSL all that will happen is you will be disconnected from the new fibre cabinet and will return to getting internet from the exchange.

All the speeds from these checkers are conservative estimates.
The underlying technology between ADSL and "fibre" (VDSL) both depend on distance. And the run of distance between you and the exchange and you and the fibre cabinet, as well the quality of cabling will effect your line speed.
You will be getting different line speeds on fibre Vs ADSL. And from what you're experiencing I'd guess that fibre is actually giving you a somewhat higher speed throughput than adsl

Great, all makes sense. Thank you! So my risk is that should I go back to a 'cheaper' package (i.e non fibre), the probability is that I will go back to an inferior quality of service. So sadly, I will have to pay a 'premium' to receive fibre albeit at a slow speed being restricted by the copper connection from the fibre box in the village to my property.

I have considered the EE solution of a 4g sim, they guarantee 30Mbps to the property but £45 per month and limited to 100G of data.
Tried to join Now but there broadband checker says no broadband at my address! Called them and they said that the maximum number of connections they are allowed to use at my local bt exchange have been used so no new customers allowed at that exchange.
I signed up last month when it was £15 for brilliant broadband, get average speed between 8-10mbs.

Do you think if I contact them they'll give me free calls?

They would be stupid to give it to you. You are in a 12-month contract and stuck.
Only a foolish company would do so.
I am afraid I have stuck with bt !! Super fast and all that markly for 33.99 ( inclusive of line rental) I have stuck with what I know !! My contract was subject to change end of August so rang and asked what they would offer me cheaper than last year so win win for me! Never had any issues with bt and would have been subject to a penalty if went withNow ... also told price freeze for 18 months so price increase in September should be null and void ???!! If not I will be creating!!!

If you are subject to the price rises then you shouldn't be subject to any penalty for leaving.
The best BT could offer me was my same deal for another 18 months. i.e. no price rise.
When I called to go through the process to find out what I needed to do to leave all I was subject to was scare tactics of why I should stay with BT.

BT has been great whilst I have been with them but I don't appreciate their sales tactics and lack of offers are pushing me towards this deal
Anyone have experience with Now as a broadband provider? I’m not having any issues with my Plusnet connection currently and I do rate their customer service. But I’m paying through the nose for an only OK package.
I’m wary of changing to an ISP that I might end up just having a load of issues with.

Poor router. Just 2 ethernet connections.
Poor service levels, if you get through. mostly email or chat.
Irish call centres (those old Irish jokes are valid)!
Pathetic website.
But it is cheap.
As long at it works, you are fine, I say the same for BT and TalkTalk.
Speed seems okay. if you have a 40mbs speed ad use two devices, they will say you will get 20Mbps each! Really!

0870 free in calls so all international calls are free. This is what makes it worth while.
Say yes to 0870!
