    every little helps - cheap tesco broadband

    £2.50 per month unlimited broadband deal set to spark price war - Mirror Online

    Supermarket giant Tesco sparked a broadband price war yesterday by slashing the cost of unlimited use to £2.50 a month.

    For a quid less than the price of its own brand Italian Pepperoni Pizza (335g) for £3.59, families can download as much material as they want for around 9p a day.

    I'm on the £5 package from sky. Pretty decent, only 1 router restart in nearly 2 years.

    got a zyxel one with our post office package it seems to have turned into a restart every 2 hours job atm just randomly drops its IP and wont connect to post office servers and constantly throws wireless devices off the connection

    Well lets break it down...

    Broadband - £2.50

    You must have line rental MUST be paid for which is a further £13.75 a month
    You must also have telephone package with a minimum cost of £9 a month

    So in reality - £25.25

    Fair Usage Policy puts it at 100GB.


    My sky package on the other hand

    £5 broadband
    £7 telephone AND line rental (admittedly I haggled)
    Total cost for me £12

    Fair usage policy - does not exist on my unlimited package!

    Do you have Sky tv though?

    Think yourself lucky, for 100GB download limit, cable broadband including home phone its $120 per month (81 pounds)

    I think I am going to wait until Tesco offer FREE* "Unlimited" broadband with £13.75 line rental and £11.50 telephone package. That is a far better deal!

    All this amounts to free advertising for Tesco and little else?
