NOW EXPIRED AS QUIDCO REDUCED CASHBACK TO £50. IT WAS SUPPOSED TO EXPIRE MIDNIGHT 29th APRIL. QUIDCO ALWAYS SEEM TO DO THIS.
YET THE QUIDCO HOME PAGE STILL MENTIONS FLASH WEEKEND CASHBACK UP TO £105 expires 23:59 TODAY! YET, CLICK THROUGH SHOWS ALL REDUCED CASHBACK. MAYBE PLUSNET PULLED THE DEAL!

SO NOW £18.32 WITH ADVANCED LINE RENTAL.


Unlimited Fibre 12 month contract. No activation and you get a free router.

£24.99 a month and zero activation charge.
£80 Quidco: (£24.99 x 12 - £80)/12 = £18.32 per month

Else Advanced line rental: £197.88 + £6 per month fibre (£72)
£80 Quidco: (£197.88 + £72 - £80)/12 = £15.82 per month

There are no calls on this package. You can select some if you wish.

This appears the best deal as Now Broadband prices has increased from £20 to £25.
You can also select the activation date to prevent an early termination charge, which NOW Broadband does not offer.

Not a bad deal, but there were better deals in the past.

Plusnet are part of BT. You can also use your BT Homehub if you have one.

BT offered me £22.95 a month or effectively £21.36 for advanced rental with weekend calls on Infinity 1 if I stay. This appears a better option..

Don't use Quidco. HUKD probably had your money. Go to Plusnet from Topcashback but not after visiting from here first without clearing cookies!

Most people prefer to waste their money on fancy cars to show. BTW, customer for a year with very minor issues. Digest your hate.


I'm confused, do you realise what proportion of the country can get 76mb never mind 100? How do you propose not accepting it? Building your own backbone?

What was he reason to decline?

Hmm, my OH is with virgin and they're taking the **** lately. May switch.
topcashback declined my cashback too. :-( even though the bb offer was an exclusive topcashback and plusnet deal!
Will leave for plusnet if bt don't give me a deal. Don't think bt do good retention deals.
Fibre... As slow fibre (76Mbps), right? I don't understand how they can even try to compete with Virgin 200 tbh.

Let me explain the basics.

Many areas, like mine, do not have an option for Virgin and I am unlikely to ever have the option as there are too few houses to make it worthwhile for Virgin to lay cables (yet I am opposite a top 8 university).

Virgin (aka NTLHell) costs a lot more than this deal. Virgin 50Mpbs costs £28.67 equivalent per month.
I suppose a fool would pay this much for a 50Mbps deal on its own to Virgin.

I should add, most people really do not need 200MBbps speed. I work from home and certainly do not require such a speed.

Understood?

Virgin are unreliable. Their routers are garbage and they throttle your connection. BT has a better router and don’t throttle.
I would never go back to Virgin.

I don't think you care about reliability when 76Mbps are enough.

Anyway, as I said, 1 localized issue in 1 year. Won't bet on anyone having less than that.

Chance you are still in your cooling off period, either way still worth contacting them.
So quidco or topcash back?

I not a member of either for a few years but seems like the cashback is not guranteed.

For what it’s worth, I was with Quidco for 11 years, had over £1800 worth of cashback then noticed transactions getting declined regularly, I discussed with them and they didn’t have a reason why. Then I trawled google and this has become a regular thing with Quidco, personally I don’t trust them at all anymore. I now use TopCashback and haven’t had any issues over the past 18 months, a much more professional outfit with much better customer service!
So this is a great deal but any feedback on Plusnet and quality? I’m with Sky and on the Q system with the horrible mesh system and having lots of issues with the mesh. So I’m keen to swap but don’t want to jump out of the frying pan into the fire sort of thing

I'm not sure how it works. I ordered over 2 weeks ago, but the fibre didn't go live until Tuesday.

They both work fine, as long as you're careful.

What most people do wrong is signup using their normal browser, but they've already visited the site before - clicking through from somewhere else gives them the commission payment. Solution: use a separate browser for quidco/tcb, and don't use it for anything else (I use firefox for it).

Doing this, I've not had any cashback wrongly declined in the last three years, from dozens of transactions, total maybe £2k (including £85 plusnet from tcb)

Wrt plusnet, they work fine. The fibre router isn't as good as the BT one though, a bit less responsive.

Thanks OP, I did not know plusnet were part of BT, that explains alot. Avoid them! As they all use the same infrastructure, go with someone reliable like the Post Office.
So did this deal include line rental or not. Very confusing way it has been described.
I think a friend was offered line rental and £4 a month for 38mb fibre.
Over phone they will happily do Line rental plus £12 a month for 76mb. They did a few months back. (Retention deals.)

All deals now must include line rental in the headline price. Yes it did. The calcuations are provided (£25/month base price) then the Qudco. I missed my own deal as I was going to do it today!
£15.82 is pretty good then. Only 12 months. Also assuming Quidco.

£15.82 is pretty good then. Only 12 months. Also assuming Quidco.



But Quidco is only £50 now, so costs more. Last year I posted a BT deal less than £13 a month!
Currently the deals (after cashback are):
Vodafone: £18.22
Plusnet adv rental £18.32
BT adv rental £18.66
TalkTalk £19.44
Now £20.42

So really, one should not pay more than £20 a month effective.
BT retentions offere me £22.95 or £21.36 adv rental on a 12 month deal.
It seems the Plusnet router is the same as the Homehub.

I need to keep looking as I missed out!
Edited by: "Common.Sense" 29th Apr
Yep I only made the call as I wanted the new homehub. I had Openreach and a plusnet one before. I prefer to stick with Plusnet as so far it's been very reliable.
gentprovocateur3 h, 52 m ago

According to Google, Talktalk. Which, in turn, runs on BT.
Rang bt today. Infinity 76mps with bt sport on sky £35.90 a month from retentions. Thoughts? Personally will miss the quidco ect as new customer deals are better.
