"3" Mobile Broadband currently costs £7.50/m for 5GB. So in comparison O2's Home Broadband is hardly "Free".

But that is only on their network - so is very limited, it doesn't drop back to 2G when out of coverage and doesn't include WiFi.
But as O2's 8Meg BB is only £7.50/month it does mean you are paying £12.50 for the 3Gb +WiFi which while reasonable you'd have to want the BB as well. Not a bad offer but not stunning IMHO

Notable that they say "The free broadband lasts for 12 months".

What do they mean by that - that this is a 12 month contract... or that the price is offered at this rate for 12 months only, and then even if you agree to stay a Customer thereafter, the cost is not necessarily that cheap in year two...

Worth a clarification first, as otherwise, this is a pretty darn good package for those who can get it (LLU exchange etc).

I think the Mobile Broadband is still a 18 Month Contract....

But the Home Broadband is only for 12 months so you could cancel that after 12 months if you wanted to.

It isn't that great a deal as o2 mobile customers get a £5 discount off the Home Broadband anyway, and that is for as long as you are a mobile customer....
