wicked thanks will have a look. rep left

the post office have 11.75 a month for the home phone, no need to pay BT and no minimum tie in. Not sure where to get your BB though just an option

Try looking at samknows.com for help tapping in the postcode brings up providers and have a look on quidco.com for cashback :-).

is there any sort of install charge?

virgin 9 month student deal is available online and through all currys/pc world stores

The PO will charge you about £110 to install if there's no line there already. Also it's 12 months minimum.

I am pretty sure that Be Broadband which is very good has a 3 month contract

Be Broadband do something like that. I use them and they are very good.

They are owned by o2 so they could do it also.

fair enough...I just thought the contract lenght could be better as you could in effect take it with you when you move out....I understand, I only left uni this year with a £100 closing fee from BT....

bt line rental + o2 broadband - £50 quidco from o2?

p.s. can anyone link to the virgin student package? can't find it on the website.. wouldn't mind having a look at it cos my house has a virgin line installed so im basically stuck with them unless i want to ay £100 to BT to setup a BT line. cba with that!
