      sky line rental

      Hi

      I currently have sky broadband & sky talk with BT line rental, If I was to switch to another line rental provider (Primus) from BT, would this affect my Sky broadband ???

      The reason for this arther than sky line rental is because I am thinking of ditching sky broadband & possibly move to o2 but live to move my line rental 1st as BT is expensive without distrupting my sky broadband.

      Thanks

      Both Sky & O2 say thay you require a BT line, not sure if this will count or not.

      If Primus uses a shared BT voice network, then no it wont affect your broadband service.

      UPDATE: I've just checked and Primus use BT Wholesale line rental so in effect, even though you're paying Primus line rental it'll still be a BT line and as such your broadband service wont be disrupted.

      Re: sky line rental

      Thanks for advice,,,,, will switch then...

      How do u find O2 broadband compared to sky,, just for the record ??
      Is it worth the switch ?? is O2 slighty faster, is customer care much better ??
      I see that O2 is doing an offer of 3 months free service if went for them before end of month..

      Much better on all counts. If you apply before the month end but can't move until after this date the 3 months free will still apply, having said that O2 keep extending this offer anyway. Also don't forget Quidco for cashback, I got 50 but some have said this had gone up to 100 recently.
