Same as the previous offer, but O2 are now offering the first 3 months free instead of 2, so that's one more glorious month of free internet browsing
Offer expires on October 31 2009 so no rush
I'm glad i waited

Don't forget Quidco for the £50 Cashback

Usual price is £7.34 a month, so for 9 months it's £66/12 to get £5.50 a month
With Quidco it's £66-£50 = £16/12= £1.33 a month


Update: It now seems that people who went for the previous deal of two months, can now get the extra month free too if they call O2.

I'm sure it would be worth a try by calling and asking if they could give you this offer too

Hot! A word of warning though.....only change to O2 if your exchange has O2 LLU.

I signed up for the O2 Home access broadband despite reading worrying topics on their forum regarding pings etc., and to my dismay everything they said is true :-(. Speeds & latency are great off peak, but at peak times (seems to be from around 6pm to midnight) things like online gaming are impossible as my ping jumps from around 50 to 140-200. I could understand this if it was congestion at my exchange, but it was fine until I moved to 02 so that is not the problem.

Scorching hot deal though if your exchange has O2 LLU :-D

As you're within the 30 days 'change of mind' period, there wouldn't be any reason for them not give you the extra month free, as you could just threaten to cancel

Its also only that price if you have an o2 mobile........

Thanks Road2 for useful info. Would have been interested in the Home Broadband "Access" But now you've got me thinking,

Like you I can only get Home Broadband access for £17.13pm (for being O2 mobile customer too) I'm not sure if the quidco £50 cashback applies to "access" customers even though 3 months free does! So could end up costing me £17.13 x 9 months) £154.17 less £50 quidco (assuming it applies) comes to £104.17 divided by £12 works out around £8.68 pm, which is still a very good price if I don't get the problems you've had/mentioned.

I'm currently paying about £17 per month for Freedom 2 Surf (taken over by Tiscalli) for up to 3MB line (when last checked).

Checked quidco and see Tiscalli are giving £60 cashback and reduced rate for first 3 months, but for a 18 month contract! :shock: so still not a good deal for me.

This deal is great for those who can get it :thumbsup:

No probs, just don't want everyone jumping in like i did. On the plus side they have the 30 day peace of mind guarantee, so if it turns out to be like mine you can leave.... I'll be leaving soon lol :roll:. And the quidco did track for me on access :).

Your listing is completely misleading. The price for 8mb BB is £12.23 per month. You can reduce the price to £10.67 per month if you pay a minimum of £10 every 3 month for a mobil contract with O2 (£7.34 + £3.33 = £10.67). You have to be very disciplined with your payments because if you miss a payment, you pay full price for your BB and this caculation doesn't apply.

£10.67 x 9 months / 12 months = £8 per months. I think you should change that in the title.

As far as Quidco is concerned, don't bank on it until you actually have the money. I lost out on Quidco (O2 refused to pay says Quidco). This seems to be a pattern now for high earnings. The same with Topcashback.

Check first if your BT line can handle it. Mine can only handle 6.5mb.

To be honest, i couldn't be bothered writing the description for every type of customer for a broadband network, that would take me ******** ages, people should be grateful that i actually informed them of the better deal rather than say "boo hoo, there is not enough information" jeez

And what's wrong with your facts too? if for a non-o2 customer it would be (£12.23*9)/12=£5.00
So for £5 a month for a non-o2 customer it's still an amazing price
In future, actually use the "go to deal" button as that explains more of the situation

And Quidco has never gone wrong with me, just bad luck for you, next time make an enquiry and get the money.

The previous deal for this which was before the new 3 month offer got to around 1700 degrees, so this isn't a bad deal

Surely (12.23*9)/12 = 9.17?
EDIT - Ah I see its £5 with quidco

Great deal, went for the home broadband premium, (£9.79 per month for 20MB download - 1.3MB upload and unlimited download) yesterday and topcashback tracked immediately for £50. I am an existing O2 customer.

Got the first three months free and they provide 12 months free antivirus for three PC's - SKY have now dropped their MID package to a 10MB download limit from 40MB and only offer antivirus for 3 months on one PC.

That's why I changed, I think this is a far better deal. I live 100 yards from the exchange so will get the 20MB download.

Give F2S a call if you've been with them for more than 12 months. I was paying £23.99 but am now paying £13 after trying to cancel.

Voted. I bought the two months free a couple of weeks ago. Might try to get the extra month free.

does anyone know the restrictions of getting the o2 customer rate with a pay as you go phone?

do you have to top up a certain amount every month to get the lower price?

Thanks

£10 every three months I believe...

"Home Broadband subject to availability, BT Line, direct debit* and min term contract. Discounted price quoted is for O2 Mobile customers. Discount for Pay & Go customers subject to £10 min. top-up every 3 months."

Thanks mate

O2 paid my £50 to Quidco without problem, seem to be a great ISP and the UK english speaking helpline is better than BT or many others. As mentioned above a great deal if you are an O2 mobile user and on a LLU exchange.

obviously you have to be aware it's a gamble as O2 have had a hole in their routers exposed which allows people to easily take control of the network and get files off the attached computers..

theregister.co.uk/200…rs/

I'm on the O2 Access package and have no problem with ping rates at any time of the day ! :thumbsup:

quidco just paid for me after last deal by o2 - £70 quidco paid after 2 months waiting superb deal just like this one

yep £10 every 3 months and no problems no nags nothing all you get is a txt telling you its direct time time
very happy with the service but I would say dump the router after a while and get a netgear as the 02 one is fine but you sometimes have NAT problems on 360 even if you port forward

You need to go back to school mate. If that's how you work out your deals, good luck to you. Go to a Quidco forum and read what people say about missed payments. There must be a lot of Quidco employees around here "confirming" their payment.

I don't agree for quidco missed payment thing (and I'm not an employee).
I have been using quidco from last 3-4 years. Only one missed payment out of around 100. I also raised around 7-8 queries and they were all successfull. Twice quidco paid from their own pockets (although after around 8 months) when alliance amd leicester didn't pay for my current account openings.

I certainly don't work for quidco lol :thinking:, and I've only had 3 payments not track (All tesco!) out of 200-300. Even then, these were paid when I submitted an earnings enquiry. I've had over £600 back from quidco in the last few years. :w00t:

I've been with VM for £9 per month for two problematic years. When they put up the charges to £20 I rang and said I would cancel. They said OK, so I did cancel and went with O2. I'm glad I did because my service is much better and faster and sooo much cheaper. For some strange reason, VM seems the most expensive of all providers and yet they advertise a 10mb service for £5 per month. They are gangsters and will only trap customers who can't work out their complicated prices.

This offer becomes even better :thumbsup:. Heat and rep added.

Enter my postcode on the o2 website and it shows unavailable. From samknows, I found my exchange and then search the postcode of my exchange on O2 website, it prompts available. If so, it should be available, right? I don't want to find that I cannot get O2 broadband after getting a landline. Does anyone have the same experience with me, i.e., not available for my flat postcode but available for the exchange postcode? Thanks in advance.

In addition, any one knows if the post office home phone service is eligible for O2 broadband since O2 only mentions BT? Also, does anyone know if there is a fee for the reconnection/ activation of phone line? The guy who lived in my new flat previously should have disconnected the line.

I have something similar.When I enter my postcode on o2 website it shows I can get only "O2 access" which is not truce cos I have already "O2 LLU". A year ago was showing is unavailable (samknows was showing "O2 LLU" availability) but I phoned them and they connected me in few days.So best way is to give them a call.

I'm with O2 more than 12m. It's great ISP and I would recommend for anyone who can get "O2 LLU".

There is so many good deals for new customers, but what about existing customers??
Is there any way we can get some good deal? Anyone knows something about it? Please, share.
Thanks.

£10 top up can it be on any 02 phone at household or the same phone all the time

Check first if your BT line can handle it. Mine can only handle 6.5mb.



how can you check what your line can handle?

I really want to leave VM but they keep telling me I will not get as fast speed with anyone else as I am about 2 miles away from the exchange but samknows tell me I am about 1.2 miles. So I really don't know what to expect I would be happy with about 6-8Mbps.

Is anyone else on o2 with similar distance and what speeds are u getting? I know theres other factors to include such as quality/noise on the line but it would still help me decide.

If it helps, I took out the standard package on the 28th Aug. This was with the first two months free.
On seeing this offer I rang them (how nice to actually speak to someone who I could easily understand), they gave me the extra month free as well:thumbsup:

I average around 8meg with O2. I was previously with BT and managed around 4 meg, how can it be so different.

Anyway, thanks OP for the free month.:):)
