      Line rental & call charges with talk talk - still ok for sky BB?

      Hi

      Just found out that 'we' (i use that term loosely ) have signed up for our line rental and call charges with talk talk (moving from Bt). I want to remain with my sky broadband 'max' service, and was assured that as talk talk only rent the line from Bt, that it would not effect my current broadband in any way.

      can anyone confirm this?.

      thanks
      joe

      Why would you do that?
      All I know is that if you take LR and BB from TT you can't go anywhere else for broadband.
      No idea what happens if you just take telephony from them.

      I personally didnt take it, but yes, it is only for the telephone package. The talk talk deal will be cancelled if i cant keep sky BB (end of), so will ring sky tomorrow morning, at hopefully a less busy time, if no-one on here can tell me tonight.

      i thought that tbh, but you know how strange these companies can be to each other. I better still ring them i suppose, unless someone on here has the same mix of services.

      thanks for the replies

      What's the betting that Talk Talk try to take everything over and stuff up your broadband.

      Can you not ring them and just cancel, you shoud get 30days cooling off.

      All in hand - phoned them this morning (after ringing sky just to make 100% sure), and you do get a 14 day cancellation period. Though our details are not even on their system yet (was signed up yesterday teatime). So have to ring them again next monday when it should be on the system by then. I have a feeling BT would be ringing us anyway, as soon as TT contacted them, to persuade us to stay with them. Tbh, i wont rest easy until it is properly cancelled (thats the way i am ).
