    I'm on their top package. £10 a month for unlimited usage with no download caps (the only isp in the uk who actually do this, all others have a fair usage policy). Up to 16mb download speed (i get about dependant on line quality, distance from the exchange yadda yadda yadda. Never had a problem with them ever, highly recommended by me.

    Well Mike, as you know, just had o2 wireless broadband installed at home - and well, its much much much faster than the AOL crap we used to have.

    Their standard broadband packages come with up to 8meg download speed, and costs for exsisting o2 customers, £7.34 a month, or £12.23 a month to people who aren't an o2 mobile customer (if you are an o2 pay as you go customer, you got to top up more than £10 over 3 months).

    Useage is unlimited, there is no mention, even in the small print, of a fair useage policy.

    They have an offer going at the moment, if you sign up within the next 10 days you will get the first 3 months for free. One thing you will need to look out for however is the "rental" fee for the wireless router which they supply. Parents paid £30 for the router, which you may as well look at it that at the moment with the offer, your first 3 months free are basically there to pay for the router itself.

    I knew this might sound like a bit of sales talk, I don't work for o2, won't see any benefit from people signing up, just sharing what I think at the moment is a good offer/deal.

    Can't fault them, few problems compared to previous suppliers, tech support have actually been very good when I did ring them, and the price is hard to beat too. We have the full phoneline, calls, BBand and TV deal and it's cheaper than having it all seperate.
