only good if you live in an unbundled area i'm with o2 on access and really suffer now they have the traffic management system in place sometimes my old dial up from years ago was faster!!!! will be moving to orange or talk talk soon as only two unbundled by me

Looks like a good offer

Do you ever get the feeling you are subsidising other O2 customers? I pay about £18 per month (unlimited) for a connection speed which is not brilliant. O2 did mention that when they got their own equipment in the exchange the speed would improve considerably and that the monthly charge would be £7.50. Sounds great doesnt it. But, ive come to learn this is not going to happen in a million years in the area where I live

So annoying seeing all these bb deals I can't get.

Any way to get a phone line re-connected without paying £120 odd quid and a 12 month contract with BT?

Ring them and ask for them to waive the connection charge - you'll have to sign up to an 18 month contract tho.

I thought the free connection on 18month contract had ended in January, I did ring BT but they were having non of it. Strange way to run a business, I'm with Cable at the moment but BT don't seem to want me as a customer....unless I pay through the nose.

all the time, all the areas around me are unbundled smaller towns etc just not where i am with no sign of it ever happening, damn BT

Quidco removed from deal price - it can be highlighted in the OP but Quidco price cannot be quoted as deal price, thanks

Don't even think about this if O2 ACCESS is the only option available (BT Wholsale line), the performance is terrible. Traffic shaping and network bandwidth have ruined my surfing experience. 7.5Mb connected, but only about 0.5Mb throughput. Just going through termination procedures on my contract, but they are looking for £116 to cancel! All complaints fall on deaf ears "what problem, there are no problems with the network"!!

You need to take calls and broadband with BT for them to waive the connection costs. Talk Talk were offering the connection for half price but I've heard mixed things about them. Anybody got any feedback on them?

I live in an unbundled area, get premium BB - 20MB for £10 per month, really is a great improvement over both SKY & BT. Get really good bandwidth all the time really good for streaming!! Had to call customer services once about a problem with router, sorted very quickly and call centres are all English based.

What exactly does a 'bundled/unbundled' area mean? Moving into a place this weekend and i'm looking at the different options for phoneline/broadband.

Traditionally BT provide the equipment at the exchange and cables to your home (the bundle).

There has been an option in the past few years for an ISP to unbundle from BT and put their own equipment in the exchange. This way they aren't reliant on BTs wholesale pricing model as well as they can put better equipment (faster and less contention in theory). It's a little more complicated than that however roughly right in principle.

You guys are really putting me off of o2 access broadband, I've signed up this week and should go live on Monday (22/02) Do you think I should cancel? As they run a 30 day cancellation policy. Here is my local exchange info: samknows.com/bro…SEI

Order the O2 Premium BB at £10 a month but Quidco has only tracked at £60 instead of £70 that they state.

Should I wait and see if it gets upped to £70 or should I submit an enquiry to Quidco? Many

Thanks

Anybody got any further details on when O2 are up and running onthe home phone package? Was to be start of March which is imminent, but Ive not heard a thing despite signing up for email info....

Hopefully there will be MAJOR quidco for that too....

is this for new customers only.
can i cancel my o2 then re-join

Was just checking quidco, looks like the cashback amount has been reduced to £50

quidco.com/o2-…nd/

If you want to check your line go to samknows.com/bro…nd/ to see if your exchange has been unbundled (i.e. other operators can use the facilities without going through BT.)

£75 cashback ended yesterday

I am on Access and my download speed is 4.0kbps all day,goes upto 30kbps at night.......what a rip off!!!

Deals seems to be hot BUT... I wouldn't recommend O2 atm.

I've been with O2 nearly two years now and the level of service has dropped since last october/november. I've spoken with tech support MANY times and every time they say new equipment is going to be installed, unfortunate I'm still getting the same crappy service.

I'm actually just about to change my ISP, currently around peak time (evenings after 5pm and most of the weekend) I'm getting packet loss of about 3-5%!! Absolutely not acceptable for online gaming.

btw, I'm on premium ADSL MAX.

I would never trust on Quidco paying out, you have to treat this as a possible bonus only.

If you can get on the LLU network, then o2 are superb, probably one of the best out there.
If you can only get the access package, like me, avoid like the plague.

I signed up in sept last year after moving from orange who wanted to increase charges to £25. No network has an LLU in my area. Speeds in the evening about 1.5 - 2 meg / sec and decent, if not amazing ping rates for gaming. October, had an email saying they want to introduce traffic shaping to improve my browsing experience. Utter ********.

My connection speed in evening / weekend, approx 100k / second download and ping rates near 500ms! During day, when I'm not there, speed is near 1meg. Complained several times, and they won't do anything about it. Can't wait will contract is up, will move to a 3g t mobile dongle, which is much faster around here!

If you just want to check emails, its fine. For gaming, watching youtube, 4od iplayer etc, get anything else - pref without a 12 month contract!

O2 are great as long as its LLU and not Access.

However, I have had a few niggles with them since joining in September....

It is relatively common knowledge that their DNS servers are regularly at capacity, resulting in issues with name resolution.

In addition, they seem to have relatively regular routing issues, that their tech support resolved by getting me to manually connect to the secondary router. This results in some websites (HUKD for one!) being inaccesible for hours until secondary router is pinged.

That said - still amazing product and service for the price. Just be aware that they arent perfect.

This Quidco offer expired last night - back to £50 on all..

The enhanced £70/£100 £backs are now available at TopCashBack instead!

It's a good deal, but the service doesn't seem too great to me. I'm on the Manchester exchange and it's over subscribed. This means while I get excellent downloads speeds (well over 1Mb/sec most of the time), I also get quite high pings (near 100ms) and quite a lot of packet loss. Still, could be much worse.

Im on LLU (well not Access anyway)

I ordered a few days before Quidco went up to 100 so was a bit peeved but it just got paid at £100 today.. WOOHOO!!

Good service for me so far, drops out at times but way faster than my Virgin media line ever was! (touch wood it stays like that tho)

Do they migrate from Sky ?

Currently I pay my line rental + BB to sky is it possible to move to o2 ? So they BT land line no check fails..
Sky the service has gone down to the dogs! from 8Mbit/sec now down to a pitiful 50-100Kb/sec

talktalk are really sh*te, friend was with them and downloads were very patchy and trying to connect to his machine to fix things was impossibly slow (teamviewer)

Don't choose the Access package unless you want dial-up speeds during peak hours. I'm counting the days till my contract is up. Check out the o2 forum for lots more dissatisfied customers:

forum.o2.co.uk/vie…601

If you have an LLU enabled exchange but can't get cable this is the best broadband you can buy, Bar none!

Just to second what others have said about O2 access, do not be tempted to go there - if you can get the LLU product it's a great offer (though I have had nothing but trouble with o2, worst company I have ever dealt with but I think I've been unlucky as most sing their praises) but otherwise run for the hills!

It used to be £50 up until Jan last year but now you have to pay the full contract term.
Access is horrific i would rather go monthly contract with AOL than these bunch of thieves.

I'm going to stick my neck out say...if you are on access and have an O2 mobile there are a couple of advantages:- 1. you pay £17.50 for 9months (second year deal) and 2. downloads are unlimited. Of-course peak time is slow but if you schedule the big stuff for offpeak then its just acceptable.

Of-course, there are bound to be some better options but orange and talk-talk are certainly NOT in this case.

£50 is/was the EARLY termination fee for subscribers pre Dec 2008 (18Dec08 from memory); from then there is the 30-day moneyback guarantee, and then a commitment to PAY for the first 12 months of service, even if you wish to stop receiving it earlier.

Cant recommend o2 enough... Been an 02 Broadband customer for over a year now and have nothing but praise for the service. Really reliable and great speeds. Their customer service staff are always friendly and seem like they do care about you which is a nice change.

Also you get a static ip even though they dont state that (usually a fiver extra) Its simple enough to change your ip if you really need to though.

The downloads are throttled 24/7 good luck with that.I would rather have joined talktalk LLU than access.
