Six months free home broadband for O2 mobile customers @ O2

Six months free home broadband for O2 mobile customers @ O2Get this six months free home broadband deal @ O2

If you’ve been with O2 mobile for more than two years, the network is offering six months of home broadband for free. Can’t argue with that. Plus, you get a fiver off your bill every month thereafter.

The £25 connection fee is waived too. You must sign up for a 12-month contract. If you’re already with O2 broadband and you’ve had an O2 mobile for over two years, you can grab the six free months by resigning.

The deal is only available over the phone. You can call the sales dudes on 0800 954 1367.

It's worth pointing out that by moving to one of these 'new' packages existing customers may lose their 'unlimited' download allowance and be subject to data traffic 'shaping' and more likely to kick you of should you use what they deem to be 'too much data'.
Personally for £9.50 a month I'll stick with what i've got thanks all the same :)
Of course this won't be an issue for a majority of the population but it is for me.

What do you mean by "unlimited" allowance? It's pretty clearly states that you are allowed 100GB for all rouder and 250GB for the works. It's in their fair use policy.

All Router has bandwidth limit on torrent and video streaming.

I'm on an true unlimited package that i've been on for (nearly) 3 years, these new packages lose you the that capability. I work from home quite a bit and spend all day sucking up bandwidth that I don't want to affect my 'home' allowance (or my bills). If I was to take advantage of the new packages I could find myself blowing the new allowances.

Are you on O2? I have Pro package with them and new tariff 250GB is not enough for me. Misleading advertisement on O2 part.

Yep I have the intial 'basic' package which used to be restricted to 12Mbits (out of the usual 20) but being as I can only get 8 and a bit Mbits where I am I stuck with the lowly initial package. Still unlimited :) I won't be switching any time soon despite the 'fantastic' offers.

Hmm... O2 is being a bit sneaky there by comparing prices to Virgin's 30 MB service when in reality, most ADSL customers will struggle to even match Virgin's 10 MB service for speed (either way Virgin is still overpriced).

Have to disagree on line speeds. ADSL line is dependent on how far you are from exchange. BT gives you pretty accurate speed estimates and its done instantly. You just need to give them a call ask for estimate. If BT tells you are on 2MB line, there is no point to pay extra and worry about bandwidth cap. I called virgin and they could not get me connected, even though building next to me had virgin and I could even pick up WiFi from Virgin routers. Ideally I would go for BT infinity, but its not available in my area. O2 did not have any problems with cancelling my contract because they were unable to get phone line installed.

@CTPAHHIK
Don't shoot the messenger, I'm just quoting from Ofcom's 18 million speed tests.
