Cheap Broadband

  Ronnie268 18:57 12 Jan 2008

Does anyone know of a £10 a month broadband service with more than 5GB usage allowance and over 4Mbps download speed?

Also, it is ESSENTIAL that there are no hidden costs

TalkTalk has FREE broadband if you use their phone service, minimum cost £16.39, includes line rental. 40GB monthly usage and up to 8Mbit/s download speed.

but ta anyway

First of all , see what ISP's have unbundled access at your local exchange , then see what they are offering ...for example O2 , if you have a pay monthly mobile phone with them , they are offering up to 16mb/s for a tenner , although you need to be within range of an unbundled exchange that has Be on it .

I take it you don't have Sky? I think you will be hard pressed to find what you are looking for to be honest.

If you can get Be click here they offer up to 8 Meg, unlimited allowance for £14 but if you go via the cashback site Quidco click here you can get £40 cashback. You may also be able to get free connection so this would bring the monthly overall down to just over £10.

If you can't get Be, the only other I can think of would be Newnet with a 3GB allowance for £11.95 if paid annually or £12.95 monthly, £1.40 per Gig over the allowance.

The Tiscali offer is for 3 months only, the price goes to £12.99 after that.

Yep, missed that bit!

OK, try this (Option 1) click here

And before anybody says it's £14.99 which is more than Ronnie268's £10 limit, it does include line rental - so you don't have to pay BT £10.50 per month just for line rental.

So, effectively, the BB is costing you £4.49 and you get free weekend calls.

Even Option 2 (which I use) effectively means the BB is only £9.49 and ALL your calls are free.

And, no I'm not a Tiscali salesman - but they have been my ISP for many, many years, and I'm perfectly happy with them. ;-))

If you can get it to work in the first place........

Thank you for all of your replies.

Unfortunately changing phone provider is not an option at the moment.

I said over 4Mbps but I actually mean at least 2Mbps and if possible 4Meg.

I think O2 is a good option if already on O2 4 mobile. Are there any other offers like this, so when I change mobile, I can consider both at once.

Mine works perfectly, thanks. That's why I recommended it.
