In order to save and enjoy £7.99 p.m. for the first 3 months, I joined BT Total Broadband Option 1 in mid November. The 1st week I got an email to say I had used 7GB of my 10GB allowance. The 2nd month I upgraded to Option 2 with 40GB allowance.
I was then presented with a bill for £166 to be paid the week of Xmas. This included £60 for the Vision Box. I asked if this could be spread out over a few months and an agreement was made to collect £54 p.m. from 28 Dec. This was never collected and a lady phoned me in the first week of Jan to say there was another £120 to add to that bill and could I pay £88 there and then on the phone and then about £60 p.m.
So, in 2 months I owe £282. A lot different to my imagined as advertised £7.99 p.m.for the first 3 months!!!!
I have since discovered that 10GB and 40GB is useage FULL STOP. I thought it was downloads, which we don't hardly do. BT's advert is very misleading though, for Option 2 it reads:
40GB monthly usage, enough to download 10,240 music files, 40,960 photos, 59 movies, 10 HD movies or 117 hours of iPlayer every month. If you exceed your usage allowance, we won't just cut you off. You'll simply be charged a little extra (£5 per 5GB)
I surf the web and emails only. My son however, plays XBox Live and World of Warcraft on pc, although no downloading going on, I understand this is where the useage is!!!!
I should have stayed with AOL, unlimited, for £19.99 p.m
