Want to Switch BB, anyone using Shell, Onestream or Pop

I am currently with Nowtv BB and they have been ok, only got the Brilliant BB 11mb so not high user. My contract ends next month and there is a big price increase. I have tried a bit of negotiating but not got much to offer.
The deals on this website for Shell, Onestream and Pop look very inviting. Trying to find reviews but they are pretty sparse.
We are not big users but just want a simple fuss free BB provider. Does anyone here use these providers and are they OK. Thanks

    I had Onestream for a while, but they never actually connected my BB.
    I ended up getting compensation, that was a few years ago, but could be better now.

    Superfast Fibre Plus (68Mbps FTTC).
    My deal was £24.99pm with £110 cashback via MSE, so you might have a better one!

    I can't say for certain but Octopus have a webpage of FAQ and they say that everything will continue as before. Hopefully this means we'll both ioir cashback!

    Still showing on the offers on here so they shouldn't be offering cashback now if there is no intention of honouring it
