It's back upto £70 Quidco again mate, hence the reason why I'm posting it!

quidco.com/o2-…nd/

So does this work out at £1.50 a months is that right??
£7.34 x 12 months = £80.08 - £70 quidco = £18.08 / 12 months = £1.50

is that right??

Yes more or less:

£7.34 x 6 months (at 15% VAT rate) = £44.04 + £7.50 x 6 months (at 17.5% VAT rate) = £89.04 for 12 months

£89.04 - £70 = £19.04 / 12 months = £1.57 per month after Quidco

You'd certainly be hard pushed to find a better deal on 8 meg broadband after Quidco than that!

Great service as well. I'm with Be, which is the same network, and it's super fast.

when does the quidco come after 12 months?
I gotta say o2 are 1 of very few companys who treat there EXISTING customers well.

It says it'll be validated 2 months after purchase. I got Quidco from an O2 sim only deal and they paid up within a couple of months so quite reliable.

As already posted that does work out at £1.51/m (minimum) for the first 12m commitment.

I've been an o2 Standard customer for nearly 20 months and it's been a superb service. I actually got an o2 PAYG SIM specifically to get the discount - ie you top up £10 per quarter and currently save £4.89/m AND get £11+ worth of mobile phone credit to use too.

More information including the detailed net cost calculations at
cid-99aa6cf1226facfe.skydrive.live.com/bro…and

where there are a couple of Adobe PDFs covering all 17 of o2 and their sister company Be's ADSL offerings, and the net costing of the o2 LLU £1.51/m+ services after the £70 quidco cashback available until 30/6.

Not sure where the half price PAYG Mobile Broadband dongle comes from. I think you are best buying one via Quidco at £29.xx with a £40 cashback as long as u top up £15 for 1m usage during the first 2m. That works out at £4.xx for a dongle and 1m usage = bargain.

MKD

This is a great deal if you live in an area they have LLU'd - outside of that you are paying >£17 a month.

fantastic deal for the likes of my mum who is still on payg "dial up"
pays about £5 a month for it so this will be a much better service for even less money
thanks !!!!

Exactly that, o2 said my exchange would be LLU's on January this year !!! Never happened

New date set for my exchange is end of June 09 now according to [url]www.samknows.com[/url] .... Wont hold my breath on that date

So still paying £17.30 pm and you have to top up your payg mob by £10.00 every 3 months or you will be charged full price .

Great i have been waiting for the cashback to go back up, thanks :thumbsup: heat added

what you dont say is that you need a bt line which you have to pay line rental on. alright if you already have one but in this age where 99% of people have a mobile its an extra expense some of us could do without

So which home broadband dont you need a phoneline for? You also need to have electricity and probably a computer which O2 dont mention.

Thieving swines!

(Hot Deal !!)

OK. Go to Virgin Media then and pay £20 per month for their ridiculously expensive broadband only deal that doesn't require a phoneline. Even with the BT line figured in this still works out cheaper.

Do 99% of people not have a house-phone anymore?

Dingbat.

excellent isp if you are on Local loop unbundling, if you have o2 sim and if you can use o2 adsl network then its highly recommended. if you are outside the o2 area you will be put on bts network wchich is over subscribed. see here for reviews dslzoneuk.net/isp…108

You're quite right - you need to be LLU'd and for O2 to have their kit in your exchange to get this price. Otherwise they will put you on bog-standard ADSL and charge you more.

Anyways, I'm on it and the service is good. Quidco took a couple of months to pay the £70.

Does anyone know if u can get a static IP with this. And if your porting from BE can you keep your existing statics?

Sorry scratch the first question, its £4.99 for static, must have missed it on my first look through features.

Still curious if they allow you to keep your static if porting from BE. Guess it depends how they operate. i.e. only billing etc seperated or two sub networks with own IP ranges etc.

virgin doesnt need a phone line and I got £65 cashback when I signed up with them. I didnt say 99% of homes dont have a landline but said 99% have mobiles so a lot of households dont bother with landlines now compared to 10-15 years ago.

Good deal for those that need it voted hot , but if you can get ntl/virgin/cable broadband you are getting a better deal, also the father in law is on Bt for his internet connection and the maximum he can get is 2mb/sec despite numerous phone calls and having the line checked by an independant engineer not important to some but personally i wouldnt pay for an 8 meg connection only to be told 2 is the maximum you can get. Not sure if that speed drop is applicable here but it is worth a note , voted hot anyway.

That's why it's Up To?

Sweet.... So what do i need for this? a bt line and a wireless router? Do O2 supply the router?

xxxxxxxx

Anyone know how I transfer from exsisting broadband to O2 via QuidCo?
Do I just ask for my mac code from current ISP?

owesome,,,,, lolz ;-)

I'm with O2 already... paying £10 a/m for 20mb ADSL2+... It's on BE's network (O2 bought BE)... Certainly does the job! Probably the fastest, most reliable connection you can get for the money
I remember when I was paying £25 a month for 150Kb BB from Tiscali...

wackojacko99;5586043

That's why it's Up To?



The upto bit would apply except he lives less than 50 metres from the exchange and so should be able to receive the majority of the bandwidth he pays for rather than a fraction, my ntl connection is 20 meg and if the source can send at 20 i get 20 on BT from the same source 2mb despite fitting the requirements set out ie distance from exchange and having multiple tests done.

But like i said i voted hot because if it works for you as stated then great.

and i forgot to add when he dropped down a package ie 8 meg to 2 ( i think) so did the speed in ratio ie his 2 meg dropped to below 400k, why ill never touch broadband from Bt i want what i pay for to work right.

I've just ordered Sky, getting TV and phone line. Once that's activate it's a toss up between Sky BB, O2 BB and Be. I've heard good things from Sky BB, my parents have it and they seem pleased.

Yep, wireless router is included, though you have to return it to O2 if you cancel so make sure to keep it clean otherwise they might charge you to replace it!

You don't need a wireless router as you are supplied with one.

I'm on 02 broadband, and I get 13meg connection. (I'm paying for the slightly better connection, but it's still only £9.79 for 02 customers.)

It's bloody quick and highly recommended, if you can get it in your area.

I've been with Sky broadband for the past year, it's been solid the whole time, virtually no downtime at all and speeds have always been pretty consistent. To be honest, I would say just go with whichever is cheapest, all three ISPs are known to be very good.

well i am a sky customer as well, been with sky from two years now, Customer service for SKY is "CR*P". Also o2 is cheaper with Quidco, i would go for o2 as i have just cancelled sky bb.

I've been with these guys for well over year now and have been overall very happy, but have to say that over the last 6 months or so the service has gone down hill quite a bit. My peak time speeds have at least halved and although they say that they're upgrading lots of the exchanges - mine isn't one of them in the foreseeable future.

Great for the price but if it wasn't for that i'd be back to Zen in a flash.

Changed over to O2 Broadband LLU about a month ago - very good service and cheap with user discount and Quidco.
Can use your own router if you do not want to use the wireless one supplied free. I prefer to use a wired Netgear 834 v4,just spoof the MAC address to that shown on the bottom of the O2 router and connect with any delay. The MAC address was 00 24 17 22 E2 D4, also use Open DNS for name servers - Primary 208 67 222 222
Secondary 208 67 220 220 as O2 name server is supposed to be a bit iffy.

Yep, O2 have to be careful not to expand too quickly without the necessary infrastructure in place. The Canterbury exchange was unusable at peak hours at the back end of last year. So much so I returned to... *cue dastardly music*... BT.

thnx :giggle: xxx

I used to get only 3mb/s on BT when they said i would get 6. I was with BT for 3 years then saw these o2 deals so thought i should try it. I was told i would get 14mb on o2 so got my mac address from the indian people working on BT trying to convince me that i would never get that speed. Had it for 2 months and am getting 14mb! The customer service is excellent on o2, barely any waiting on the phone. Its a shame that i didn't find it sooner
