      Quick question before i migrate

      Hi

      hopefully someone can answer this as ive searched everywhere but cant find the answer... anyway. Im thinking of migrating to sky broadband from zen, i understand the migration process as ive done this before but my circumstance is that my current broadband is in my name and the sky account is in my girlfriends name and wonder if i'll be able to migrate due to this. previous migrations have been from one isp to another with have gone smoothly but i cant help feeling that there may be a problem as the broadband and sky are in different names. help please.

      thanks

      I am fairly sure the Broadband account would have to go into your gf's account, if the Sky TV account is in her name. I don't know about the migration, but as it is simply a MAC that is used, which refers to the phone line and not an individual, I don't think there would be a problem. If there was, you could give Zen notice, cease their connection and reconnect to Sky. This may take a few more days.

      ah, i didnt know the mac was only for the phoneline and not attached to a name, i dont really mind the broadband going into my girlfriends name it was only a concern as i thought the mac was tied into a name as well as the phone line, if its only the phone line i hopefully shouldnt have to many problems
