That's impressive price! I've just gone & checked on their website... best they can do is £53.49 for Unlimited Infinity 2 with free SmartHub.

Hmm, think I may need to call up!

I was offered Infinity 1 for £27.99 on 18 month contract, £25.99 on 24 month contract and Infinity 2 for £33.49 on a 2 year contract.

I specifically rang and asked for cancellations, when they offered me deals such as Infinity 1 for £39.99 I asked if they could speak with a manager - then the good deals started flowing.

Give it a try.

Let us know what you get! smile

Just logging in to my mums account, it does offer £53.49 for Infinity 2 with a Smart Hub, over 12 months, but there is a yellow banner underneath stating "Log in to see your personalised deal", which is where I get the £37.49 over 18 months, with no new hub.

Not tooooo bad a deal, but one could switch to Plusnet for £32.50/18mth and get cashback* too. I just don't trust the Traffic Prioritising. The website makes it sound as though it is applied on a per line basis, ensuring that someone p2p'ing won't upset someone else streaming in the house etc. I'd love to know if the low priority traffic gets allowed line speed if there is no other traffic, or if it is slowed all the time or during peak time regardless.

*cashback should always be seen as potential and not guaranteed!

You don't need to worry about plusnet and P2P. The days of them deliberately slowing it are long gone.

As I'm in the middle of switching to BT Infinity 1 now (from AAISP yes, perhaps sounds bizarre, but trying to cut costs!), that could end up being what I do, hopping between BT and PN, but of course it depends what deals come up come contract renewal, and what retentions offer.
