Migration from Tiscali?
Hi, first post. Thinking of getting Sky Broadband. It's available in my area and I've registered my interest. My question relates to migration from my current ISP, Tiscali
If I'm on a Datastream, rather than IPstream, with Tiscali will this cause any problems with migration to Sky? I've read lots of information on different sites, some saying that it isn't always possible to migrate from Datastream and others saying it's OK as long as you're not on LLU (which I'm not). Any advice would be appreciated!
I'm not sure if I am on datastream and I'm not sure how to check - I've seen a way of doing this on a PC but I use an Apple Mac and have not come across a way of checking this that works on a Mac, so any advice on this also would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Tiscali do issue MACs, and I haven't encountered any problems so far. My line was on DataStream (could tell from the MAC). The LLU issue is whether your line is using the LLU, rather than whether you are paying for LLU.
I asked the question about finding out on the Tiscali forums and there is no surefire method at present. Just give it a go, if you decide not to migrate, the MAC will expire anyway.

I used to have Tiscali and I was able to migrate to Sky, I even got the router et all, so give it a try.

I was on Tiscali 1MB, they gave me a MAC code no prob (came through within a couple of hrs by email). And have now been activated on SKy (just haven't managed to get router to connect to sky yet - but that's another problem for another thread i started).
So generally for me Tiscali-Sky has been fine from the strict switch of providers perspective

I'm migrating from Tiscali (due to be activated tomorrow) and haven't had any problems from them, got my MAC 15 minutes after requesting it so just give it a go and see what happens. Remember that just because you get the MAC it doesn't mean you have to Migrate. If you don't use it within 30 days the code will simply expire. There call centre closes at 18:00 so don't do what I did and leave it until nine o'clock to phone.
