You can pay up front for your TT rental as well which will give you a discount, but I think it's only for 12 months whereas a contract can be for 18 months - 2yrs.

My current one is for 18 months but can't remember when it will expire.

its about time that BT or whoever was stopped this extortionate charge for a phone line tbh.

What else do you buy then pay a rental on top if you don't use the product ? We pay electricity and gas as we use it.

How many like me are being fleeced for this amount of money just to have the broadband internet in the house ?

Can the mobile phone companies not find a way to supply home and mobile broadband as a package ?

A few years back my brother used to have his mobile phone plugged into his computer but I don't think the speeds were very good.

You could see what EE have to offer.

I'm just changing from BT "up to 12Mbps" (actual 5-6 except at poular times when it goes down to 1) to Talk Talk unlimited at 29-39 Mbps and getting new mobiles on EE as that gives the best coverage on the Fylde. Carphone Warehouse offers Unlimited Calls, Texts and 1 Gb 4G Data with a Nokia 6 or a Samsung J3 (2017) for 17.99 or of course an iPhone 6 for 25-70 with the same 2 yr deal. The Nokia and Samsung are unlocked so you can switch SIM's if you buy outright. The EE site offers the same deal but the phones are locked to EE.

However if you buy online from such as e2save.com you can get the same deal as Carphone Warehouse but with a 5.99 per month cashback, but you have to pay 17.99 then apply for cashback by going onto their site every month for 2 years to download your bill and send it back to them within 60 days of each billing date so they can send you a cheque for 5.99. I guess that's just to prove you visit regularly so are open to further offers. Seems like a lot of hassle - you can only send one bill ata a time. If, like me, you have never had a smartphone before, you can always call in to Carphone for help whereas if you buy online, you can only telephone if you get stuck or have a problem.

e2save will give you an iPhone 6 for 17.99 without cashback.

Buying a phone is a maze that I have avoided thus far, so I'm not looking forward to the learning curve!
