UK Best Broadband Switch to O2 for £7.34 Per Month Unlimited

Personal_Finance / Telecoms Jul 29, 2009 - 12:14 AM GMT

O2 Must be offering the best UK broadband deal at the moment for their existing mobile customers.


Key Points

  • £7.34 per month
  • First 2 months FREE (OFFER ends 31st July 2009)
  • Upto 8mb connection speed (note in reality you can expect to get approx 4mb)
  • Free connection
  • Free Router
  • Unlimited bandwidth

The total 12 month cost will therefore be £73.40 for mobile customers. For none mobile customers it is £12.23 per month or £122.30 for the 1st year.

Compare this with Sky mid-range broad band (includes changes due on 2nd August 2009 for all customers).

  • £10.50 per month (unless you also subscribe to sky talk for £10 per month AND pay by direct debit then £5 or total £15 per month)
  • Upto 10mb connection speed (in reality expect less than half this)
  • Limited to a derisory 10gig per month! Which effectively means NO DOWNLOADS, just browsing.
  • £30 setup fee (waived for new customers joining sky tv at the same time, existing customers WILL be charged £30)
  • Free Router

First year cost is £156 , or £126 for those who also subscribe to sky tv at the same time. Therefore TWICE the cost for new signup's and 70% more for existing customers, for a greatly limited service.

How to Switch to O2

1. Contact your existing provider such as sky and request the MAC code (Migration Authorisation Code), they are required by law to provide you with the code.

2. When you order O2 broadband they will ask for the code.

More details on the O2 site.

Note the O2 offer of 2 free months ends on 31st July 09.

As you can tell, I rate Sky at the bottom of the broadband pile and O2 at the top ! Lets hope O2 don't do what Sky did by hooking people on a low monthly rate of £5 per month, and now effectively forcing all customers to pay £15 per month through severe service restrictions (75% cut in monthly allowance) and stealth condition based price hikes.

O2 Mobile Broadband

O2 are also offering 50% off on their mobile USB dongle service, for a £15 one off fee, thereafter you choose to pay as you go, i.e. £2 per day, £7.50 per week, or £15 per month, which makes this a great TEMPORARY BACKUP service to your main broadband connection, as well as useful for when your on the move.

  • Step 1 - Plug the dongle into your PC
  • Step 2 - Run / Install the Software
  • Step 3 - Buy mobile Broadband access to your service level
  • Step 4 - Go online - 500mb per day, 1gb per week, 3gb per month.

NOTE : Regardless of the misinformation that the mobile shop staff maybe giving out - ALL MOBILE BROADBANDS INCLUDING O2 DO NOT WORK WITH WINDOWS VISTA 64 BIT
