    Have I got a good broadband deal ??

    Called Oal today as I have completed my 2 month contract and was thinking about canceling, I have been paying £19.99 a month for 2 years as part of there free laptop deal.
    To cut a long story short they have offered me 3 months free- then £9.99 a month there after For unlimited Max, thats without aol talk whitch I told them I dont want as was glad to cancel it ( had probs throughtout the 2 years with the talk package)
    I would like to stay as It means no messing about with new emails ect.
    Kids use for laptops xbox ect,

    They also said they would send me out new Latest model wirelesss modem ect,
    Just dont want to commit and then find I could have been better off somewhere else especially as it is !8 month contract again.

    have you tried the comparison sites, or broadband checker

    Why are you thinking of leaving? if you want to move because of service then dont stick with them just because of price

    AOL can go as cheap as 7.99 for their max BB

    Only thinking of leaving cos been paying £19.99 for 2 years and coulkd do with saving a few pennys

    Well just ask them for 7.99 a month with some free months, ive seen people at 4.99 so i know they have the power to do it.

    Just recontract and save them pennies

    Any idea how much bandwidth you use? You might be able to find a cheaper package if 20-40gb a month is enough for you.

    Are you with Virgin or Sky for your TV? It may be worth contacting them to see how much broadband would cost.

    £7.99 is a good price he said I could have £6.99, but that was with talk, Without talk the cheapest he could offer was £9.99,with 3 months free.
    Think I will take it .

    Will give it a go:thumbsup:

    I was on AOL as well 2 months ago with 8Mb, unlimited download usage, ADSL. I migrated to o2 just because of better services/price/speed. AOL tried to offer me £15 a month for the same package I was on and with aol talk free of charge, obviously i declined the offer.

    There are 3 different packages with o2 Standard(8Mb), Premium(20Mb) and Pro(20Mb). i choosed the premium package and paying £9,79 a month (£14.68 for non-o2 customers). They were offering 2months free broadband but not they increased it to 3.
    o2 only gives cheaper deal for o2 mobile customers that either have a pay monthly contract or Pay as you go sim card that you would need to top up £10 per 3 months after you sign up to broadband. im obviously am a o2 customer so i went with them.

    This is what i see great about o2:
    Fast broadband speed - upto 20Mb on premium and pro packages
    Usage: unlimited
    Customer service: free and the line is open 24hours, 7days a week! Unlike Aol their call centres speak proper english not asian-english lol.
    Package bundles: free McAfee internet anti-virus program, wireless router, free web text

    Well it really depenDs on what you want your broadband to be like. Typically 8Mb is more than enough for casual use. however i play online games a lot + downloading so i choose 20Mb with unlimied download usage. Talk Talk's 6.34 deal -8Mb + 40gb dowhnlload limit. you have to know is 40gb enough for you. If it isn't o2's Standard package is unlimited for £1 more (o2 customers/ non- £12.23). talk talk package looks appealing with the free evening calls though but i already got free evening calls with BT =P.

    edit: to know is 40gb enough for you, do you and your kids download a lot? such as movies(upto:7gb av:1.4gb) and games(upto 8gb av:4gb) which are usually big files.

    note:if you migrate ISP you still keeep your previous email account..
