Thanks very much for all that info RobertoS,
I am still omn the old Standard package, I would not take any retention deal as £14.50 a month from April to me is still a bargin for the excellent service I am currently recieving.
I did call up for my MAC code earlier today. The gentleman was very aware of what I was on and the new packages that on offer now. I told him it was not cost as I just want quality of service.
Asking me why I wanted to leave I stated I am just scared that they impliment the traffic management onto their old stamndard package and wanted to get out when the going is good on other ISP's.
He promised me that as I am on old standard that would never happen and that is why my price will be higher than the new basics package.
Asured me that if I am happy the way I use the internet at present then there is no real need to go to sister company BE.
I have never taken a new contract from the start and when I took out O2 Broadband back in 2008 there was no 12 month contract you just paid I think £50 to exit at any time.
I was only looking at BE purly as there prices are rising after 1st April to £17 for BE Value and if you get in now you would keep the £14.08 price after April.
I suppose even at £17 BE Value would still be an attractive product and value for money in this day and age.
So did not get my MAC.
I may just stick it out with O2 just now and see how things go over time.
