SSE Fibre Broadband 38Mbps + phone - £30 Connection fee (monthly commitment) £24pm plus possible £90 TCB

24
Found 20th Mar
The price is decent-ish already, but add that its on a rolling monthly contract and the possible £90 TCB and I'm struggling to see what the catch is.

£30 activation, but there is no minimum contract term on this product.

    If they are anything like their boiler cover then avoid worst company ive dealt with
    Just what you want at a time of need... A gas engineer turning up to fix your broadband
    This hacks me off. I was with SSE for 18 months on a similar deal but left when it ended in January. I'd have definitely re-upped at this price
    Had this a few years back with ordinary broadband. Only Quidco failed to pay up. There is always that chance that they don't pay then the deals not that good.
    Not really that good a deal compared to what's around

    Agreed!
    Don't rely on quidco, they will not pay. Speed was poor too.
    I had great speed and great uptime, but had a weird ping issue and latency at certain times of the day. Online gaming was impossible, had to go back to virgin.

    Agreed!


    Me too, shocking broadband service and they couldn't careless
    The "catch" on a monthly rolling contract that commences at a good price is that the supplier can increase the cost or alter the service with just 28days notice. As an aside: there is a connection charge of £30, there may be a termination fee; there is definitely a £54 equipment fee if the supplied router is not returned to SSE within 30 working(!) days of termination (postage prepaid by SSE). So absolute minimum spend is £54 based on £30 connection fee + £24 one month (28days) service.
    Have been on this for the past 2 months. Topcashback is confirmed, only waiting for it to move to payable so I can switch to one of the numerous BT offers which pops here all the time.
    Been with SSE for over a year and been fine so far. Only issue is the rubbish router with no modem only mode.
    I'm with SSE for everything - fuel, fibre and boiler cover.

    Quidco has already paid out on Fuel - £55, waiting on Fibre & boiler cover.

    Speed is good, we have low fibre speed in the area but its fine for what we use. Also, no ISP blocking - BT stopped Kodi from working altogether - with the smart protection deactivated.

    Lastly, SSE have committed to keeping these prices for the next 3 years - I totally recommend it.

    Ditto
    My mums got this and it's awful
    I had SSE for 18 months on 76mb anytime calls and include line rental for £19.99/month. Never had any problems. They couldn't offer a deal when it ended. Only thing I think about this deal is its a bit slow internet speed
    People who voted cold cos they have gas or energie with them should jump from the bridge because their broadband is top notch,
    If you're not a fuel customer there's an additional £5+vat per month add on so not such a good deal.

    Can't comment on the quality but the prices are said to be fixed for 12 months (3 years if you're an energy customer).

    So apart from the horror stories (which aren't valueless), on paper the deal looks alright?

    Fair observation. So minimum cost over 12m is £30 connection + (12 x £24) = £318.

    Maximum cost I'd say, but in any case the 12m is an arbitrary term. I'm usually not in it for a quick cashback buck, but as a bridging provider it sounds quite useful.

    Arbitrary minimum 12m cost mentioned in prev post in line with the deal title that quotes incorrect 12m cost of £288, not the actual £318 cost.

    I don't post deals often so I might be mistaken, but I didn't do any 12m calculation in any post or the title. I can see it's been put there now, but not sure who by.

    £30 connection fee still not mentioned in thread cost & title at time of this post. And the OP statement of "but there is no minimum contract term on this product" is incorrect as the minimum term is 28 days.
