      I see that some are happy with 6 months free line rental. That is a bit like a pact with the devil with you agreeing to loose your Broadband for 2 weeks if you want to change providers!! In my humble opinion it is worth paying more and keeping the BT line for future flexibility. If you are happy with pacts with devils, the Talk Talk devil looks better value for those using between 10 and 40GB per month.

      Those that may say, it's ok I told SKY not to move me to the LLU network will note that in the Terms and Conditions, this is not an option & will therefore get renaged on at some point.

      I have now got to the of the first bill cycle with the Usage tool and used 11GB (I am on Everyday !!). I did not get an email and the usage tool does not display one either. I assume that the automatic transfer is not started properly as it relies on the warning as part of the process.

      That's a good point. Those that had Sky Rental before the SVBN went live had the option to opt out, anyone joining after a certain date do not have the option and accept it as part of the T & Cs. If they decide they want to change the conditions of those who opted out, they will have to give them 30 days notice of there intentions.
