      Any Ideas?

      Hi, sorry if this has been brought up before but i have just joined.

      Been on sky connect (about 17 pounds a month) for about a year and a half now. I only signed up with the promise of getting moved over to the cheaper option when the local exchange got unbundled. At the time I asked them how long it would take and they said within a few months. Since my exchange has not been unbundled yet and doesn't appear to be for a while I phoned to complain about being sold the product on the understanding the unbundling was soon to be complete. The person at sky said I was lying and they would never have given a rough timescale. They did though? Who do you comlain to when they just say you are lying?

      Re: Any Ideas?

      Typically, if an exchange is due to LLU'd, they will charge you 5 per month for the Sky Broadband Connect service, so the fact that you've been paying 17 per month, suggests that there never was any immediate plan to install LLU equipment at your exchange.

      Sadly, you're not the first person on this forum to report having been told things by Sky's sales staff that turned out not to be true. You could try calling 020 7705 3000 and asking for Customer Relations, but I wouldn't hold out too much hope because at the end of the day, it is simply your word against theirs.

      The only silver lining to this particular cloud is that at least you're past the 12 month minimum contract term and can leave Sky Broadband with just a month's notice.
