    BT what deal should i try to get 19th Apr 17 at 3:03 PM
    Am going to contact BT as I have been out of contract for a few months and am paying through the nose for stupidly not sorting it. Its all so complicated
    This month I have paid
    £101.18
    Unlimited BT Infinity 2
    Unlimited weekend calls
    line rental = £53.99
    Unlimited anytime calls £8.99
    TV - Entertainment plus - £10.00 the box is BT Vision and it keeps flashing up to say I have to replace with You View Box ( I have not used any on demand stuff or channels on this box but use it to record ordinary channels so I think I may be better buying a box
    BT sport Pack - I don't watch it but my husband has sky on his TV so can watch it on his Sky - £14.25
    I have two mobile SIMs
    £8.00 for my son but he is using mobile data and keeps going over
    Mine - £5.00
    We have made a total of 17 calls on home phone (16 free)


    I don't know how to go about sorting this out, what deal should I get/aim for


    Husband has Sky on his TV he has Sky Go extra £5
    Box sets with sports and cinema HD - £33.60
    Sky contract not up until 1st Sept

    Do you need infinity 2 are you getting near the speed .
    Line rental is sub £20 pm .

    Your start is what do you want .
    Then price up other providers than tell BT you want to leave if you are sure you out of contract and see what they offer .

    I have done test and got download of 12.7mbps and upload of 16.5mbps that's on Wi-Fi, this does not mean much to me though. I sometimes watch I player and my son plays online gaming when he is here.

    I think you've done OK,you're saving £22 with a better box(vision is stopping end of May anyway)
    Just make sure not to use the landline much for outgoing calls as you no longer have anytime,though doesn't look as though it's needed.

    I'll post my price in a mo

    If you have only weekend inclusive calls and then go on to make more than one hour of calls per month on weekdays (at around 21p per call plus around 12p per minute), you will have already spent more than the unlimited anytime call plan (at around £8 per month) would have cost. With an unlimited anytime call plan, you can make as many calls as you like to numbers starting 01, 02 or 03 as long as each call does not exceed 60 minutes duration.
