ISP & Phone for newly built flat


[link to this post]
 
My sister has recently moved into a new flat, and needs an ISP & Phone service for the place for the place.

As the flat is new, there's no telephone line and the postcode is only recognised in a few systems.

Price is a main point, as there's not a lot of money available but she doesn't want to spend too little and get a really bad service.

So what would you recommend? She needs a service which offers a new line installation, and a bundled ISP and Phone service.

Many Thanks
J

BT are currently doing a £30 new line connection, providing you take out an 18-month line rental contract. They will do the connection free if you also take out BB with them, but I wouldn't recommend that due to their onerous DLM.

For BB, consider O2 or Be, depending on her usage & if she already has an O2 mobile. They also do phone plans but I think there is not much saving over BT.

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU BB => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU BB

Mallards House, Alder Court ?

BT checker thinks about 4.5Mbits/s
http://www.productsandservices.bt.com/consumerProduc...

£16/month + £10 line rental free connection & 18 month contract. 10 GB option 1 & anytime landline calls.

Plusnet or Post Office worth checking out as in the past there bundles have looked cheapest. BT phone and cheap LLU broadband may be less than a bundle.

Are you recommending them?

Did you see this? "Price is a main point, as there's not a lot of money available but she doesn't want to spend too little and get a really bad service."

I would recommend for phone service and if you sign up via http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/phones/home-phone-c... Line rental £6.79/mth 12 month contract.

I cant recommend the broadband as never used there broadband.

Indeed. Save £43.20 per year. Quite good in a low interest climate.
