O2 Broadband? ... = ... newly set-up?

Will you please consider setting up a board for the above mentioned?

Historically, I was dismayed when then @Toby deleted all 'stuff' regarding such threads to do with this

It would be quite some time ago now ... = ... not long after I came across O2 Community at about the time of 'the migration' ... = ... if memory serves as it should ... but ... not often does enough to my liking upside down

@WispaRed7 No need to as O2 broadband doesn’t exist anymore

@lovemyphone

I was told by Sky recently that O2 have newly gone back into this 'service' ... but ... just arn't advertising it at the moment

I'll see if I can get confirmation about this, one way or another, when my brain is functioning better, at a more suitable time of day Smiley Wink

 

@Martin-O2 @Marjo @MercedesS ... what comment(s) do you have to make?

That's interesting @lovemyphone.

O2 are still providing mobile broadband as I have a contract with them for 20gb per month for a 24 month period.

So presumably what you're saying @lovemyphone is O2 no longer provide 'home' broadband. Didn't know that.

When I renewed my mobile broadband contract October last year, increasing my data from 8gb to 20gb, the advisor I spoke to mentioned a special offer for 'home' broadband whereby installation would be free. I wasn't interested as I neither have nor want a landline.

Of course, the advisor I spoke to at the time could have given me incorrect information. It does happen 😆

O2 sold it's Home broadband to Sky in 2013.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-21627614 It does provide mobile broadband as stated. A thread here posted in February of this year

https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/Other-Products-Services/Does-o2-do-home-phone-and-broadband/td-p/10414...  Unless there have been any changes recently, it's still the same as far as I am aware...?

@Cleoriff ... thank you for the links you posted 

In one of them @adamtemp64 says the service is only now available to Business Customers

I can only quote what the very nice Sky customer service operator said to me recently when I contacted Sky to help me to reduce my monthly payments (with expert help from The Community Family) ... as it happens my monthly payments were reduced by about half, & I entered into a new contract with Sky for tv / internet provider ... = ... it was then the very nice operative told me the news about O2 going into providing / having an internet service ... but ... 'were not advertising it' at the moment rainbow

The only way that might happen is if Sky bought O2 from Telefonica Shocked

Rupert Murdoch is having enough problems trying to buy the balance of Sky. And if Murdoch is successful, I don't think the Regulator would then permit a Murdoch-owned Sky to buy Telefonica.

That's just my opinion and I could be wrong. God forbid Murdoch was successful in his bid to own Sky and then bought Telefonica 😣

Not Telefonica !!.......just O2 UK.......same as 3 tried to do.

 

Sky already use the O2 mobile network.

Sorry @Beenherebefore misread your post. Little sleep and really need to go back to bed 😪

Would still be horrified if a Murdoch-owned Sky bought O2 from Telefonica.

You wear your crown well @Beenherebefore 😄
