      Just applied for Sky with Broadband - how long for activation?

      I've just applied for Sky at my new home,

      The earliest install date I could choose for Sky was 18th April. Obviously, I'd prefer to get the broadband up and running before this, but I'm not sure if Sky time it to coincide with the installation of the TV service, or if I will get connected to the broadband before the TV service is installed. Does anyone know?

      Thanks,

      James

      Sky Broadband is governed normally by a number of factors:

      1) Agent inputting the order correctly

      2) BT doing the work.

      Hopefully the broadband will come before the TV, 18th April is a long way off though, shows how many they are signing up I suppose.

      Hi there,

      See my thread in Sky Broadband Feedback.

      A little information that may be of use, but I did select to do a manual installation.

      Thanks MikeyN.
      Are you saying that your broadband was installed before your TV service was? thanks,

      James

      Hi James

      Sorry I did not mention that bit in the previous thread. The sky plus box was already installed at the property and has been for a good few years, what I meant is that I ordered broadband as an addition to my present sky tv package and then the order was processed as my previous thread comments. Sorry for any confusion Imay have caused to yourself. I take it at present, you have no sky package whether this be broadband, dial up or tv and you are looking into getting the whole thing from scratch? If so I am afraid I cannot help you out much with delivery lead times there!

      Hope everything goes well anyway.

      Regards

      Mike.
      N.B I hope this thread turns out ok, I am currently surfing the web via me PS3 just to see what it is like n terms of speeds, functionality etc and this is the first thread I have attempted to reply to using this method.

      Hi Mike!

      Your post looks fine, hope you're enjoying your PS3.

      Yes, your right - I have no Sky service whatsoever and am now appliyng for the whoe lot including broadband. It's going to take over 3 weeks for the TV part to be installed, but I was hoping that the broadband would be installed quicker than that!
