      Question Do I, or dont I? Can I? Should I?

      Lo all

      Been waitin a while for my exchange to be enabled on Easynet LLU thangy. AT last it is. (Willaston)

      Suddenly got a call from Sky...Hi, would you like to come to SKY for your broadband?

      A few months ago I would have snatched her hand off. F2S were goin down the pan, and I needed to jump ship quick. However, F2S seem to have improved (at least for me), and I am now in two minds as to whether to leave.

      Im not big on tinternet lingo n'all so please excuse me if I say somethin daft.

      I pay my phone bills to Talk Talk, not BT. It is a BT line. I seem to be under the impression that this may cause me a problem with transfering my MAC from F2S to SKY. Is this correct? or should I not worry?

      Im already on broadband, do I need to pay an activation fee to SKY? I am looking at the mid package.

      I dont seem to be able to keep my old favourite router ZoomX6, I have scoured various forums and find no mention of it being one of the accepted few.

      Will the transfer from F2S to SKY go seemlessly without any major connection losses or issues?

      Should I stay put?

      thanks for your time

      Regards

      Guy

      Personally I wouldn't. But I'm biased (see the my experience thread).

      I'd wait a week or two then ring tech support and make sure no problems have shown up at the exchange. Also do a search on here for the exchange to make sure no-one is having problems.

      Isn't this the joy of a forum, so many different views on a single subject?

      I can't answer all of your questions, but someone will. The ones that I can are these:

      Yes you will have to pay the 20 as you have to have a connection to different equipment and that is the price that Sky have published for the Mid package. You could go for the Max and get it free.

      As for seamless migration, it really seems to be the luck of the draw. Some of us migrated in under 10 days (over the Christmas period) and others are still waiting after months of waiting. See the posts in Sky happiness and Unhappiness.

      Whatever you decide, good luck

      In the case of newly installed LLU equipment I don't think there's anything I would worry about. I know the strict QA Easynet are putting them through after the problems they have had before.

      Thanks for the replies.

      What is the different equipment I will be connecting to? (LLU) forgive my lack of understanding.

      Maybe I take the advice and hang on for a few weeks.....see what happens.

      Again, thanks for the info
