  • Virgin Media is running until the 19th a credit offer ranging in value from £50 to £100 depending on which phone+broadband, or TV+broadband+phone package you order (the entry level starter collection is excluded).


How can Primus make a profit with unlimited BB at £4/month?

I thought 18 month contracts was being dropped again slowly and we was going back to 12 months, but it seems not. the only provider in that lot with a 12 month contract is Sky, which is no surprise to be honest.
I took a 2 year one with the one I am with now, which is not normal for me, but i can't see myself going for anything longer than 12 months again, if I ever do change a to another provider.

And what about the current BT advert on TV for Infinity free for 6 months and then £15 per month thereafter? That's interesting as it sets Infinity at a price lower than ADSL broadband, but only for areas where it is available, so not most rural areas then!

That Infinity TV advert is probably the same product as

TV does sometimes carry different offers to online listings.

20GB usage allowance on FTTC is not that useful in my opinion.

Infinity is not cheaper than ADSL. (With a usage cap, ADSL is £10/mth, Infinity 1 is £15/mth. Unlimited ADSL is £16/mth, unlimited Infinity 1 is £23/mth.)

Add up all the discounts, vouchers and cashback available, you can move to BT Infinity 2 for under £15/mth for 18 months. (When I pointed that out to the Plusnet sales guy, he got very hot and bothered and told me to "go with BT then". So I did.)

Discounts, vouchers, cashback, packages, offers....I'm beginning to think the telecomms market needs simplification in their tariffs like the energy companies so that it makes it easier to compare. Be honest, is anyone here able to compare all the above easily, never mind someone who's not quite as tech-minded.

I am currently with BT but will be leaving in May, never to return. My contract went from Jan 2013 to Jan 2014. I ordered BT Sport in May 2013 which apparently updated my contract to May 2014. No problem except that the discount I had negotiated as an existing customer ran out in Jan so I have to pay full price until May. BT will offer the world to new customers but don't care about existing ones. They will consider a discount only in May when my contract is up so I am leaving. I have been a BT customer for a long time but they are quite prepared to let me go.

How much better would it be if companies like BT would actually start providing proper telecom services instead of wasting money on dubious voucher schemes, or BT Sport, or other non-telecom adventures!
