BT line rental is £10.75 a month (was £10 a few months ago) if you pay in advance

Sky do that too, for £9.95.

Personally I think Ofcom should prevent discounting for 12month upfront payments. If there are savings to be had they should be more widely available.


Agree - if you're in a situation where you need to be flexible (ie job changes, moving house etc) then you're effectively penalised.

But that's kind of the point isn't it, you sacrifice flexibility for a reduced line rental. I presume it is cheaper to provide a line to one customer for 12 months than to provide a line to one customer for the first 6 months, and another customer for the second 6 months. So that saving is passed on to you in return for your 12 month commitment. It's just a bulk buy discount, utilised in business everywhere.

Plenty of 12 month commitments don't require all the year's money up front, though. It's just penalising those who would be happy to commit for 12 months, but don't have £129 kicking about.

Money upfront for many items, months, etc has always yielded a discount and probably alway will.

Supermarkets give fuel discount if spending over a certain amount. Surely similar thing?

Do you have to buy a year's worth of shopping in advance?

£120 upfront gives a saving of £2 - £3 /month = £24 - £36 not sure how much exactly.

A £50 weekly shop gives £5 discount at pump. Do that 3 times and you still don't save as much as the BT deal.

Which is better deal?

Although that sounds like a good offer I think the OP sways towards traffic managementless connections, O2 look like they manage P2P to death.

The legacy packages are completely unlimited and unthrottled.

Not any more they don't and i speak from personal experience

I just left O2 and I did not experience any issues of that nature on legacy package. I left because of the rubbish issues that kept coming back every couple of months that Be could never really fix.
