O2 Broadband customers. Six months free broadband plus Six months at £2.50. Pay years phone line for £119.14

Found 12th May 2013
Just rang 0800 230 0202 to cancel my broadband. Got through to a sky rep who advised my if I migrated onto sky from O2 early they can give me the new customer deal of six months free but also six months at £2.50. Was hoping for 12 months free. To sweeten the deal the rep advised me that if I paid the years line rental upfront it would be £119.14 for the year inc vat so worked out cheaper than O2 if I was offered 12 months free BB.

Can the cold voters provide a better deal please?

I'm on the o2 legacy package (unlimited) I was with sky before, sky's speeds were worse, I fear the move to sky will end up with me losing my legacy package and place on something sky want me to be on, a bit like your 'offer'

Rang up to cancel earlier and was given no compelling reason to stay. Received the letters but they've advised it may take up to 18 months for full transition.

Staff are being transferred to O2 mobile and now the sale's gone through there's no incentive for the staff to keep you.

Was offered 50% off the full price of broadband, but would have to pay 13.something a month for line rental. For comparison, currently pay £19.25 all in for the all rounder.

Also, if you've got an O2 mobile, if you cancel that before the move to Sky, I was advised you'd lose the discount and would then continue to pay the higher amount to Sky when you do transfer.

On the sky leaflet, noticed they said it was a straight swap to their unlimited service. Not sure what the price difference is, but come the next renewal under Sky it'll certainly go up.

Got my MAC so going to move to plusnet fibre.

Well Sky only have one unlimited package priced at £7.50 but there line rental is £14.50 unless you pay upfront then its £119 for the year, so if things stay as they are now 02 customers should see a reduction in price ?

All that she said was the existing contract price would be honoured for the duration of the contract. Wonder if that means you would get a reduction?
