Quick warning on NOW TV cashback. If you've been a NOW TV streaming channels customer, they view you as an existing customer, not a new one, when you take out the BB line, and deny you the cashback.
It's a good deal but the Now Routers are awful and drop their signal all of the time.

How reliable is Quidco for cashback payments?

Hot deal! Shame my deal won't end until 26th July or else I have to pay the early termination charges.

Oh wow really? Even if you've only bought an occasional NOW TV sports pass?
Perhaps we can get round this by using a different email address?
Good deal. If like me you can't get fibre top cashback have £100 back for the brilliant broadband package which makes it work out at £9.66/month

Go for it, it's only 3 weeks away, they will delay it as it normally takes 2 weeks for the transfer anyway . You just need to order then call, just make sure they don't cancel your order and reorder via the person on the phone or you will lose the Quidco..
Nice thanks

Cashback here is no gimme, a lot of money to be relying on. I had to battle hard to get mine. Take deals with vouchers back instead, guaranteed return
I had this for 12 months. Broadband was very reliable, customer service was great, cashback via TCB was paid quickly but the supplied (Sky) router was pants.
My £90 is already payable (TCB) and I only went live at the start of June. Very impressed. I did use a new email address just to be on the safe side.

Also no issues for me with the router, still reaches all over the house like the talktalk super router did before and no dropouts or reboots needed. I am getting the advertised speed of just under 40Mbps (although it does drop a bit on the second floor up.)

Were you currently an existing customer and did you use a different name and bank account?
I’ve just taken a contract with now broadband, I’m still within the 14 days cooling period.

If I cancel and reorder using that link it should be fine shouldn’t it? Using a different Quidco account.
Okay this isn't really about the deal, and I've looked on line,( which I could have missed it ) but I don't have a smart TV, and was going to go with now tv, as virgin is just getting ridiculous and I'm aware they are good but I'm more of a price watcher, anyway sorry long story short (ha ha) do I get free view if I go with them or do I need to pay, like I said I've looked on line but can't find the answer so thought I'd try you lot of helpful people. 😁
36mbps should never be considered fibre broadband. only speeds over 150mbps should be ever considered fibre.
I think there is a upto 72mbs with talk talk for 25 a month and 95 pound cashback at the moment
Not bad at all. I have this package and Quidco (last year) was £80 and paid out without fuss. The calls are free to UK landlines and mobiles and to reiterate what someone else said, there are occasional dropouts - usually around midnight for some reason.

On the plus side, Now send you occasional offers. In my case, I received 6-months free entertainment channel and last week I received an email offering me 3 months of their cinema pass at £5.99/month.

Didn't that just end?

I'm trying to move from sky bit when I spoke to a guy at plusnet he said there's an issue with their system where it can't recognise a current phone line and said that it's the same for all providers at this moment in time.

Also, I get 6-7meg with sky but plusnet say 2.5 to 5 with a guaranteed 0.8, is that normal, has anyone else had a drop in speeds when switching? He said sky and talk talk have their own connection's, something to do with a deal with open reach.

I was an existing customer with a different email address but same name/address. They take payment by card, I think I used a different card.

Topcashback clearly states this:
Cashback is available for new NOW Broadband customers and existing NOW TV customers. Customers who already have NOW Broadband or NOW TV Combo will not be eligible for cashback.

So I probably didn't need to do that....

No it was £90 when I ordered, then went to £50 it now back up to £100
Went live in May and still showing only as tracked on Quidco, signed up my father who went live in June and his is already showing as payable on TCB. So if you want the cashback quick I would suggest going via TCB.
As others have said the supplied router is awful constantly dropping the signal but everything else is fine and free calls are worthwhile. Doesn't include 0845 0870 etc though.
If anyone's bought this today, has it tracked in Quidco yet? I clicked through and bought earlier today, but I had ublock running which prompted me to temporarily allow some tracking cookies. I clicked to allow but still nothing showing in Quidco so Im just wondering if it's actually gone through properly or not.

littel.helper02/07/2019 16:24

Still not bad deal. Is it? Just over £10 pm?!


I'm debating between this and the plusnet offer. It's on tcb as about £30 to click through to broadband genie and then there's the £75 cashback through plusnet. And with them you can pay for the line rental up front which effectively brings the price down from £19 a month to £17.50.

So if you pay up front and get their cashback it works out at about £11.25. No idea if the tcb will track but if that did, you could potentially get it for £8.75 a month!

At least it's plusnet's cashback, so that should be pretty much nailed on. I'd see the tcb as a long shot and a bonus.

My only reservation is plusnet quote me at 2.5-5 mbps when I'm getting a steady 6.5 from sky. The bloke on the phone was confused by that!

I was told that talk talk and sky have their own connections when it comes to booking into the exchange, on a regular line a minimum drop of 1.5mbps wouldn't be an issue, but when it's only 6.5 and could potentially drop to 2.5....

That would be pant . .. I am with sky and getting about 6-8mb on ADSL, I am happy with that but wouldn't pay normal price (£31pm). Currently paying £11 for my ADSL .
I just checked on Plusnet web site I get estimated 1.5-5mb of download speed.
Minimum guarantee 0.4mb

Why is there no mention of the Anytime Calls on the Now TV page?

I'm still in contract with TalkTalk until September, but when you change providers do you need to wait until the contract is up - or within last week or two? With energy providers it's within the last 45 days - but there seem no definite rules with broadband!

If I just totally cancel my contract with TalkTalk, seeing it's never been reliable - and go mobile BB, which I'm using at moment. Once they switch off the phone line, what happens if you ever want it reactivated? - do Openreach charge you some ridiculous reconnection fee?

Fibre is a description of the technology, not the speed. A motorbike that only goes 10mph is still a motorbike.
We ordered NOW TV Fab Fibre (36Mbps) back in Apr with the £90 Quidco and 6 months Entertainment pass deal:
hotukdeals.com/dea…874

Just checked and Quidco is showing as "confirmed" for the full £90.

We also got to choose the installation date (to coincide with when we moved in May) - so this shouldn't be a problem if you've got a few weeks of an existing contract left to run.

Despite being Fab Fibre (advertised as up to 36Mbps), with a personalised estimate of 24.9-37.3Mbps, and a guaranteed minimum of 20.9Mbps, the router claims a steady 40Mbps downstream and just under 10Mbps upstream (which were both pretty much the advertised maximum for all providers in the area, so no point going for faster options only to be capped by local infrastructure limitations). The ping seemed a little high though (can't remember what the speed test showed it as), but this doesn't really affect us (ie. not gamers).

Agree that the router is slightly limited with a fairly sharp signal drop-off with distance from the router - but using a simple telephone extension cable has allowed us to place it centrally so that it does cover all of the house. The 2 x gig LAN ports are half of the usual 4, but because of where we've now got it for WiFi coverage, we've had to use a Tenda Powerline AV2 Wifi kit to get a good LAN connection to the TV/lounge (and anywhere else that we're going to need it in the future). So we're actually only using one of the 2 x LAN ports on the router.

Combined with Anytime calls, this means that we can keep our cheap, low-usage mobile tariffs too - which we now only need when we're out and about.

The Entertainment pass was useful to finish watching the final season of GoT (having had two other "trial" periods under different emails).

I'd easily go with NOW TV again, but will look for a new customer deal from another provider next year, and then switch back to NOW TV the following year...

Anyone seen any good deals with TV On top?
