My beloved O2 Broadband is being sold to Sky
Indeed. But they are more expensive than Plusnet with less bang for your buck.
I presume BH's issue is not T&Cs but aversion to Sky.
I have a good phone package with BT so could probably get a good broadband bundle - the only question is the very mixed reviews it gets. Mind you, Demon gets some poor reviews too and my only complaint is price. I guess it's just the usual problem of only those with problems speaking out.
A good modem makes a hell of a difference. I used to get<2Mbps like all my neighbours. I put in a Billion modem and now get between 4 and 5 Mbps. ISP supplied modems seem generally poor.
Mike - you don't say who your ISP is.
Unfortunately such speeds are just not on offer in my area. Though as I am currently able to stream video quite comfortably I'm not sure I would get much benefit from them anyway - I'm not into online gaming and suchlike.
BT is looking good. I'm currently paying about £45pm in total for my BT unlimited call package plus the Demon service whereas adding the unlimited broadband option to my BT package gives a total of about £22. Just need to unpick the offers a bit - they anticipate broadband users adding phone but not vice versa. And for an extra fiver or so I could get Youview - or maybe not.
Demon have offered a reduced rate but they'd have to be virtually free to compete.
If they're excited to have me, just wait 'til they find out how excited I am to have them...As you may well know, we've now bought O2 and BE home broadband and home phone businesses, and we're really excited to welcome you to Sky.
We'll be bringing your services over to Sky's network starting later this year. Until then, you'll continue to get exactly the same home broadband and phone service (if you have it with O2 or BE) as you do now. Right now, you don't need to do a thing.
If you have any questions, you can find more information and details on how to contact Sky here
We'll shortly be sending you a welcome pack in the post, which will explain what's happening in more detail. But for now we just wanted to say hello.
