Just wondered if any of you are up for contract rental with broadband? Orange have a great deal at the minute £14.99 month for 2 years and free laptop. However when I phoned aol (my current provider) they have offered me an amazing deal! Very happy
£14.99 a month:
Wireless broadband
AOL talk (free evening/weekend calls)
DEL laptop (much better spec than orange one)

I'm shocked, we've been paying £17.99 a month for crap speed broadband and this is much better speed wireless broadband and a free laptop for much less a month! Tounge Out

Apparantly Orange broadband is quite poor though according to a huge amount of reviews on the net. Nice offer though!

i work at phones4u and we do broadband things and i been lookin at this meself for me and kim for the new house, been ringing through to orange and going through all our info and the broadband itself is rubbish, u get nowt on it, the laptop isnt the best at all really, not everyone can get the deal its only on whether theyll accept it or not and also ur stuck with it for 2 years lol not that recommended even tho sounds really good on paper

Orange broadband is getting worse and worse, friend of mine has been without internet service from them for 2 weeks now and customer service has been feeding him the worst excuses ever, go with Orange Broadband at your own risk!! and as Joe said above, you'll be stuck with it for 2 years, 2 years of poor service, is it worth the effort?...not in the slightest.

I'm with Tiscali and the connection speed and reliability has been fine for most of the time but the customer service was a nightmare when I did have a problem. As it's a foreign call centre, they just have a list of set questions to ask you and if your query doesn't fit any of their tick boxes you just end up going round the houses for ages. Teeth
I would consider movign to another provider once my contracts up just to avoid that experince again! Mad

Hi, i gave them a call and asked for my puk number (to leave aol) they asked why and i mentioned the orange deal. Thats when they said they could better it. Its worth a try, they should offer you something to stay and if they don't nothing terrible lost just phone back the next day and say you've changed your mind.
