I am an O2 customer and was looking to sign up for the best broadband deal and found this so heads up for those who have or know someone who has an O2 contract (thats 20 million customers who can take advantage of this offer!) or even pay & go sim!

PLEASE NOTE : ALSO FOR PAY AND GO CUSTOMERS SUBJECT TO £10 TOP UP EVERY 3 MONTHS!!!

so its £9.79/mnth with 3 months free so 1 yr = £88.11
quidco for the premium package is £75 so = £13.11 for the year
or in other terms £1.09 per month (or £4.09 per month if you dont have O2 and want to take into account the £10 per 3 mnths top up for pay & go customers if you get a sim)

Free wireless router, Unlimited downloads, Customer service number is FREE so no charges for calling them up if problems, NO connection charge and 3 licenses for mcafee antivirus (worth around £15 quid on its own - cheapest i could find after a quick froogle search)

i know quidco is not a guarantee. but i always get it paid and so do most of others plus you can put an enquiry in if it doesnt track in the first place and i think a lot of people DO take quidco into account when buying online...... plus main thing is its just a heads up like i said.

Like you I always get my o2 quido so I think it is pretty much guaranteed (for me anyway LOL) - Stonking deal if you ask me and smoking hot - Heat and rep added - Cheers :-)

Do you need an BT for this?

yes like all independent broadband companies..........

"You can only get O2 Home Broadband over a BT phone line. If you get your landline from Virgin Media or a similar company, you need to switch to BT to sign up for our broadband. Unfortunately, we can’t make that happen for you. You’ll need to speak to your current provider and BT to get things rolling." - quote from o2 broadband site!

Do you need an BT for this?


I did/do.

When I asked (last week) I was told I'd need a connected, active BT (or similar sub-supplier) line. i.e. you have a dial tone. So It won't work if your phone line is supplied by a cable company.

They also told me that they won't take orders unless the line is active at the point of ordering (unlike mine, :cry:).

Hope this helps.

You also need to live in certain area's to get this deal, unlike me!!

This is the same offer and cashback levels that has run now for 5 or 6 weeks and been posted in various guises over the period - ie good to get the word out, but repetitive.

For those who want to see all the options/permutations of the o2 packages with/without cashback and with/without an o2 mobile (it's ALWAYS best to get one even if you dont use it) see my features & net-cost computations at
cid-99aa6cf1226facfe.skydrive.live.com/bro…and

Also includes a detailed comparison to the o2 sister company, Be Value at 50% for 12months offer that has been (wrongly) raved about on here. :whistling:

For those WORRIED about cashbacks not tracking then I suggest you (a) order online but AT THAT TIME do not enter your MAC - that way the order is placed/pending but can't be actioned; (b) as soon as you see it HAS tracked then input the MAC.

MKD

Quidco has not tracked for me a couple of times so you shouldn't really include it in the price and to seccond what someone else said, this deal has been out for quite a while now

i did check and NO deal for the 20mb broadband offer which in itself is a good deal given the average is now 8mb.
and just put an enquiry in with quidco and you'll get your monies.

smoking!

I got rapidly paid out for my O2 offer a while back. NO problems - just adhere to the rules I.E. MUST BE COMPLETED WHOLLY ONLINE.


Also, if you drop your package (as I did) you will revert to a roaming ISP instead of a fixed ISP.

Hasn't made any noticeable difference to me.

Also told them to shove McAfee. AVIRA is far superior and less problematic.

Ohhh not available in my area

Sadly, I have had several instances of Qudco not tracking and, sometimes when it did, not being paid, on almost £1000 worth of purchases, from several pcs. Their support was terrible. Although we pay for Quidco at £5 per year they really give little in the way of service. The other free sites are better value, if they offer the same amount of cashback.

I do recommend cash-back sites, but it's important to know that many people's purchases do not get the money paid to them that they should - this is when rules are followed ref. cookies etc.

I too used to never have a problem with Quidco but recently items are not being paid. RAC were worst on my fiancee's car insurance at £80 not paid. Ticketed and everything and was told thsi was being dealt with. Then after 12 months and continuous chasing told in no uncertain words Quidco (or retailer) will not pay despite tracking.

RAC advised Quidco never talk to them so someone (the affiliate marketing company or quidco) made a nice £80 if they did not pass on and multiply that by a few people and it's a nice earner for them.

So now I never take into account cashback until you actually get it.

BUT this is a good deal providing you do get the Quidco cashback.

I would sump Sky in a flash if they did this in my area,m but they dont, so stuck with Sky ;-(

O2 = Quidco
I went via quidco with O2 a year ago and was chasing £60 for the whole year. 12 months to the day it went into my account. I take it that they waited for me to complete the years free home broadband i got free after getting a mobile dongle contract.
Can I get this offer having O2 now

Check whether you can acutally get this speed. I'm on the premier package and my line can apparently go at 14mbit but I struggle to get above 10mbit.

Amazing deal! I would take this if i wasn't tied down to a fibre optic cable virgin broadband contract!
D'oh!

Hot from me.

Anyone know how much the quidco cashback you get for the access package?

(It's the same price as the premium package..)

You must have missed this one then, posted by myself just last month, which includes the 20meg deal. I don't see what's changed since then - it's the exact same deal.

I've never had any problems with Quidco myself but site rules dictate that Quidco should be listed seperately from the deal price.

Still HOT though. :thumbsup:

£25 for access home broadband

Is there any possibility on getting cashback when you renew?

voted hot but i wouldn't touch quidco with a bargepole after recent experiences but this offer is avalaible on top cashback too so it gets a hot vote

How much is a BT Line?

Is o2's broadband better than Virgin?

I am only considering it as a 2nd line...

You know to throttle the downloads...

I am currently with Bulldog and use their phone line (used ot be with BT but switched when Bulldog did good deals a couple of years ago). Would I be able to take this offer without going through the hassle of changing my line rental to BT?

Never mind. Doesnt look like I can from the O2 site. Shame. Any way to get connected back to BT for free?

Going to grab my MAC code from Be tomorrow and change to this, thanks.

do you have a dial tone on the line or is it adsl only?
search google for 'return to donor' and that should help

Haven't O2 just introduced a load of 'traffic shaping' 'throttling' terms? Are people generally happy with the premium package?

Wish my line could handle more.

I have just been connected & did not see that when signing up 2 weeks ago.
As far as i know, they have a "very fair usage policy" & u can download as much as you want.
The only time they may slow down your internet connection is if you are affecting other users & slowing them down.

before you signup expecting 20 mb I would suggest you check with o2 what is maximum supported speed for your line...mine gives just 3mbps although it is more than enough for me it might disappoint a gamer!

I'm with Plusnet and currently get approx. 5mb on an 8mb line (BT cables) which is apparently limited by the line quality. If I changed to O2 could this change up or down or just stay the same even if it was a 20mb line?

Hmmm. I signed up to this deal yesterday and was going to post it here but was pretty sure it had been posted before. My bad. Voted hot.

Also I'm very impressed with the service so far. Even though i signed up yesterday night O2 have already checked my line and posted the O2 wireless boxset. I should be switched over to them by Wednesday which i think is amazingly quick. Hopefully its a sign of things to come.

I think your line speed would probably be the same even with the 20mb. Try putting your postcode into BT Line Checker to see what sort of speed you can expect: ]http//ww…738

My line is slow I get just under 4mb download on the 8mb 02 package, sometimes my upload speed drops to around 250kbs. I am 3 miles from the exchange so 4mb is my limit. It will be nice when BT finally put their fiber optic network together..........One day

Interestingly BT estimate my line as 7Mb max whereas the check on O2's site is 18Mb "based on info given to us by BT".

And this a copy of a email i received from them.

O2

We’re making some changes to help your O2 Home Broadband flow better in O … We’re making some changes to help your O2 Home Broadband flow better in October ’09.The internet is busiest between around 8pm and 11pm, when most people are at home and online. This can slow it down for everyone.To stop that happening, we’ve introduced a traffic management policy for our Access package on O2 Home Broadband.From now on, we’ll give first priority to those things most people want to do in the evening – like emailing, looking at websites, watching things on sites like BBC iPlayer or YouTube, or using programs like Skype or Messenger.We’ll give lower priority to peer to peer programs and newsgroup services, find out the details. So you’ll notice them running slower when our network gets busier. We’ve done this because some people use these programs to download large files (like movies and TV shows) all day long. And that slows everything else down.How traffic management worksWe’ll only do it at the busiest times (from 8pm to 11pm or whenever our network is congested).You can still use any kind of program, whenever you want. But peer to peer programs and newsgroup services will run slower when our network is busy.Audio and video streaming (like BBC iPlayer and YouTube) will work as normal – or even faster.We won’t limit your actual connection speed – only the speed of peer to peer programs and newsgroup services.



Its actually getting beyond the joke. Not only i can get sth around 400kB/s for most of the day (when it used to be 820kB/s 24/7) and the pings in the online games are like >140 ...
