Post Office phone and broadband £12.83 10Gb or £15.83 unlimited including £50 credit

Found 2nd Apr 2014
The Post Office have reduced the cost of their broadband to £7 or £10 a month, you get a £50 credit on your account from the Post Office. Line rental has gone up from £12 to £13 but if you take the annual line saver option for £120 its effectively takes the cost of unlimited broadband and phone to £15.83 or £12.83 for the 10Gb.
Their line rental also includes free weekend calls and caller display, 12 month contract on the broadband and there’s no minimum contract for the phone line but obviously if you are paying 12 months upfront it would be silly to leave!!
If your phone line is not active then its £60 to reconnect.

There is unlimited option.... £15.83(£120 + £70).
12 months x £10 - £50 credit = £70 / 12 months = £5.83

10Gb option £12.83 (£120 + £34)
12 months x £7 - £50 credit = £34 / 12 months = £2.83

This month you've used

5180.27GB
(3613.83GB during peak hours
1566.45GB during off-peak hours)

Any other members got this, whats your speeds like and is it truly unlimited.

Just read Posts Office Broadband uses TalkTalk!!here

Beware they are notorious for throttling




Post Office

We say: unfair

Fair Use: The Post Office's FUP takes us back to the bad old days: for 'unlimited' it's pretty limiting.

As a result of the CAP guidelines on advertising unlimited, however, they are at least more upfront about it than they used to be.

Users' speeds may be restricted when usage exceeds 100GB a month, for the rest of that month.

There's no word on how far they reduce speeds or for how long, however, which makes them one of the vaguest providers even after a recent network change.

If you've been affected let us know what happened in the comments below.

Traffic Management: Post Office broadband also manages traffic, although the actual restrictions are also very vague.

Peer-to-peer file sharing services will be restricted at peak times (4pm to Midnight every day of the week), though Post Office don't specify what speeds might be reduced to.

Also note: Email accounts with Post Office will stop working if they reach 10GB and will be deleted if they are inactive for six months or more.

significantly high level of peak and off-peak usage



OK, I'll take the bait. Which ISP, what package (fibre? speed estimate/actual), and how much per month?

I use Plus.Net (costing me about a fiver because of discount for introducing a few other users) and Primus for line rental at 5.99/month.

Current speed it around 10 Mbps (no VM available, fibre estimated at 33.5 Mbps this side of main road, 67 Mbps the other side).

My usage has hit 400 GB in some months, with no concern over peak / off-peak usage split (but their cheaper account has low limit for peak hours of 0800-0000 and then unrestricted from 0000-0800).

I'm only curious when I see massive usage figures, to see what others are using, and whether part of it is down to availability of fibre/cable service. In the past I looked at a budget 'Gamer' account from Claranet (SOHO section in Warrington) which had low daytime limit and unlimited 1800-0800 and all weekends (but not bank holidays if they were Mon-Fri).

Wow! When I was using Freeserve around 15 years ago, I thought 400 MB was quite generous until the morning I got 44,000 junk mail messages (11 firms had been sold "mailing list data" including 4,000 randomly created mail addresses on one of my domains... so they were ripped off by the list compiler, and I had the minor hassle of deleting the mail from that POP mailbox before it was suspended by FS).

Hmmm - after reading it with bolding on, see it is 10 GB (I had mistakenly thought it was 10 MB

Fiber unlimited with plusnet i get at the most 60 mbps had to get them to fix a copper line fault though to get to this point. its all FTTC so the copper really does matter. paid line rental upfront but quidco softened the initial blow. Afterthat its £20 a month. but its worth it for my needs.

Thanks. Yes, the cashback and reduced line rental (saving new customers 150 quid) which was on offer in the spring last year was nice (for new customers!)... shame nothing similar available to existing customers upgrading to fibre (been with them 11 years now). Dislike their wish to tie in line rental too (else user has installation fee to pay on top of higher monthly fees). Sorry, bit of a tangent to rant about Plus.Net

*****Just to clarify: It's £10 for unlimited for the Broadband and £7 for 10gb, 0.75 for every other Gb, with a free router too.. Also the line rental drops to £10 a month if you pay upfront for a year. They also give you £25 for starting a 12 month broadband package and later add another £25 to you. That means for ""the year"" with the cash back, it has cost you £70 for ""unlimited broadband"".

""""""Also Mobiles"""::: Free to call on the weekend up to 1hr. Caller ID free, answerphone free, 0845 and 01 02 evening and weekends free up to one year. p.s. that means you hang up and call the person again after 50 minutes. You can chat all the evening and to mobiles on the weekend for free by not going over the Hour...

Pretty good deal, apart from the fair use limit of 100 GB a month (but at least they are clear about it, unlike Tesco, which also has a 100 GB limit but doesn't say so... Tesco T+C says they can charge user for excess but has no pricing info about what they would charge {but someone from Tesco told me they don't actually charge extra, they just "ask" user to leave}).

The phone calls and free caller ID seems a good deal too, especially at a tenner a month. I use 1899.com for most 01/02 calls (6p call connection, 0p/minute) but they don't cover 0845 or 03 numbers. I'll have to check what they charge for new phone lines (they used to be around the 50 quid mark, or even free, at one time).

Agree a good deal especially when you are on a non-upgraded exchange like me. Just moved from BT who tell me about the great value they are only to have seen them start charging for call minder, caller display etc through the last 12 months
