Wait so you not only recontracted but paid £50? I thought if you recontracted you get it for free and if you didnt want to recontract you pay the £50?
The story so far is variable.
One poster recontracted and still payed the £50. Just wait ....if you have already recontracted, and showed interest.
Not worth losing too much sleep over it.
I was given two options:
1. £17.50/month for 12 mth contract - Smart Hub £50 plus £7.95 delivery
2. £30.00/month for 12 mth contract - Smart Hub free plus £7.95 delivery
Agreed - though it is strange there is nothing on the BT site about it yet. I was told it was currently only available to exisiting customers recontracting.
Hmm maybe the wise thing to do then would be to wait
The very very wise thing would be to wait. While it no doubt has been tested, keep in mind so was the Homehub 5 and you only need to look through this forum to see what a crock of .... it was/is and the problems the " I must have this first" people had with it and to pay anything for it until you see how it performs over the next few months is madness beyond belief.
We were actually thinking of leaving BT because our bills are average £100-£110 a month because of calls to mobiles from the landline as BT dont offer some sort of "Free mobile calls" addon like other ISP's do, and then with the HH5 rebooting and getting interleaved doesnt help. With a certain other ISP who dont use BT's network its less than half of what we're paying now with maxed out broadband, phone and tv But im sort of a BT fan so Im hoping it will be good
If I'd been unhappy with it, which I'm not, I'd have sent it back and cancelled the recontract within the 14 day cooling off period. That's not 'madness beyond belief' in my opinion.
