      Connect to Mid, its is happeneing (I think !)

      I happen to notice last night that my exchange has been unbundled and this was confirmed by the Sam Knows website. On checking the BT order tracker I am presented with this:

      PROVIDE LLU LINE SHARE PSTN 1 0.0 0.0
      PROVIDE SMPF TO SMPF MIG. ON TACTICAL 1 0.0 0.0
      Which was placed on 14 June and due to be completed next Friday on the 22nd. Does this mean my migration away from Connect has begun ?

      Cool, cheers mate - that is what I wanted to hear as my 6 months Connect runs out next month and they had already charged me 40p extra this month because of it. I did fire of an email and they gave me a 5 credit !

      Yep, certainly looks like it. I was due to be changed fron Connect to Mid yesterday, and when I checked it last night, my stats indicated that it had changed (416kb upload rather than 448).

      6 months Connect? Does this mean after 6 months on Connect, if my exchange has not been upgraded I will be charged the full amount? No one at Sky mentioned anything about this when I signed up for their 26 a month "See, Surf and Speak" package.

      My bill for my Broadband this month was 5.40, I wasn't to bothered back wanted to find out why the 40p and in the email I got back it was explained that it was because my 6 months on the 5 Connect price was up. However it did say that they have spoken to the relevant department and put me back on it. I also got a 5 credit !!
