Get bt fibre 52mb unlimited broadband and unlimited weekend calls for as little as £14.15 a month - £401.87.

I've just took out a broadband package with Bt, their deal ends tomorrow for BT unlimited 52mb fibre broadband and unlimited weekend calls for £28.49 a month. So going through topcashback.co.uk got me £84.24 in cashback. I have also got a £125 prepaid Mastercard as a new customer. There was a setup fee and delivery for router of £59.99. So working this out £28.49 x 12 = £341.88 + £59.99 = £401.87.
Minus the £84.24 cashback and £125 prepaid Mastercard gets you £192.63
Divided into 12 is the equivalent of £16.05 a month!
The reason I put for £14.15 a month is because there is an option to pay your line rental off in full saving you a further 10% off line rental, based off the same amount of cashback I worked it out at £14.15 a month equivalent.
Cancelling my sky account they couldn't even come close to matching price wise.
There are also good deals for BT sport and half price sim only offers when taking out the contract online to further savings.
Hope this helps

cashback has been up and down for a few weeks, most i've seen for BB is £105 and £88 cashback for Mobile, on top of the Mastercard incentives of £215

All the very best of luck getting 52mbps unless the cabinet is outside your house!
A open reach engineer told me all they have to supply is 10mbps.
If you go for this ask what the guaranteed speed will be! and you will get just over that speed if you are lucky!

My speeds are limited by BT to 80Mbps, my router says the line is capable of well over 100.

Anyway, BT have to give a speed estimate when you take their service; GET A PRINTOUT, as they will move the goalposts if the speed drops later.

I went back to BT after experiencing Talk Talk for a year. Just remember to log into your account once it's up and running to claim your Reward Card - BT won't remind you.

Its gotta be better than my after 5pm nightly 5mb even though I'm paying for 50mb with virgin

Signed up for fibre 2 , 76mb
Most the time it's nearer to 80mb
Cabinet not near my house
You can do plenty of line tests with different providers to get a idea of speed
Max 10mb pffffff

I was considering BT but a bit concerned about changing over and getting everything set up properly .Also don't want to be without internet for days/weeks whilst the changeover goes through As usual looked online and both good and bad experiences highlighted
Anyone any experience of this

BT are hugely expensive and require a months notice if you want to eave at the end of your contract. So much for moving providers easily. Just downgraded my package with them to this one from the 76mb. Charging me £41 a month. Nothing good about BT if your an existing customer. Guess its the same with them all. Saw that it is almost impossible to leave Sky so I wont be changing to them. See below for shocking info on Skys dirty tricks. At least BT arnt that bad and their speeds are great.

Not entirely true. If you switch to a new provider it will automatically switch over in 14 days.

To avoid any confusion.

"To stop your your BT products (such as phone, broadband, TV, Calling Features), you'll need to give us a minimum 30 days' notice.

If you are talking about Sky read whats happening online. Hundreds of disgruntled customers finding it almost impossible to change. Is there some self promotion going on here ?.

​We moved from Sky to BT about two weeks ago and it was seamless. Since the switch over speed tests have been showing a constant 50 plus download speed so very happy so far with the service.

I got a great BT Infinity1 deal with BT Sports and free weekend calls on Thursday. Got £106 TCB and will get a £150 credited Mastercard from BT. Paid the line rental for the year up front. Taking it all into account, the net cost for 12 months is £150. Stuff you Mr Branson and your 5mb throttled broadband

They increase prices two times a year like Virgin or not?

I have just taken the previous deal with BT, 52MB unlimited £218 for the year. This was paying years line rental up front & £125 + £50 cash backs. I done a speed test and it was 52 MB I am getting, so far so good

Goldy12 I was also concerned about that but when chatting with sky to cancel they told me bt had already done it for me so no notice has already been given, I'm hoping that's not them trying to con me. Sounds like there have been better deals I have missed out on. I only started looking last night when I realised my direct debit had gone up £10 a month so realised I was out of my contract. Can't fault sky for the time I've been with them but wanted faster broadband and this seemed to be the best available. Although SSE looked like they had a good deal but for some reason they couldn't provide me when they carried out a line check.

Original Poster

Goldy12 they tell me it will take 30 minutes to transfer on the transfer date they have given me to give the engineer chance to upgrade me from standard to fibre line. Time will tell if they stick to this 30 minutes as promised.

I've gone from Plusnet to BT, speed has gone from 35 to 37 Mbps, seamless swap over except for changing a setting on my AirPort Extreme. So £125 gift card £152 TopCashback £32 line rental. Router p&p, £49 Setup £10 TVs.

I am an openreach engineer and that is nonsense!!! if all you could get was 10meg You would be back on ADSL, I look for about 25 minimum when it's approx. 1500m from cab, more than that you would not be offered fibre

BT emailed me to see my guaranteed minimum would be 50mbps, I must be near the cab

say not see

That was a quote from a openreach engineer less than a month ago and yes they all talk nonsense as far as I am concerned! I live around 900m from the cab and lucky to get 21mb on a good day and as low as 0.25 mb at times and all the openreach engineers say is there is nothing wrong with the line!! Figure that one out!!!

Plenty of people live 100s of metres away from a cabinet and get good speeds close to maximum offered
So their is either a issue with your router of box inside your house if they are stating no error on your line
Ill assume as you have fibre you have removed the adsl filters ?
Also have you tried another router

Yes I'm on Fibre.
I'm sick to death of changing the router Bangladesh Telecommunications keep suggesting and sending new ones trying to charge delivery every time! BT replaced the cables through the house, I have one socket Mk3 (they tried to charge me £145.00 to fit) with the router plugged into with the phone no ADSL filters fitted! I use the speedtest.btwholesale.com/ to test the speed! when the speed drops the results are saved onto the BT server yet no one (allegedly) can get the results to see them!!!!!!

Fair enough , I used to ring about 7pm and say "complaints" and get through to someone within the UK
Are your speeds worse at any particular time or when it's rained ?
Years ago we had a issue with the box on top of the telegraph pole , I'll assume your neighbours speeds are fine

We are looking to change providers, how do I check what broadband options I have in my area?

Thanks OP,
I reluctantly just signed up, BT have been a pain in the past, moved from Sky who seem to discriminate against loyalty! Anyway with fingers crossed for a £121 cashback and a £100 reward MasterCard makes BT fibre cheaper than Sky ADSL! I also like the look of the Gb Smart Hub

I didn't get the option pay line rental up front though?

you should be able to call them and ask for a price to pay 12 months upfront but do it before you have it installed
