      If you want to be sure you are on Max before the deadline, it maybe prudent to ring Sky, I am pretty sure from reading on here, the upgrade is fairly quick.

      I have Sky TV and Sky BB mid - but not Talk.

      We don't make many calls - Quarterly Bill including rental is usually about 75.

      What would I gain from going to Sky Talk?

      Does taking Sky Talk make it more difficult to move to a different provider?

      No sky talk does not make it more difficult to change providers provided you retain your bt line rental. I have sky talk unlimited which i pay 5.00 for and get all local call free and international calls free to a number of destinations. I am quite happy with service I get

      I pay 10 per month for Line Rental plus 5 for all landline calls plus international calls (I think). I always use my mobile for calling mobiles so that works out at 45 per quarter including line rental, which is a lot less than I was paying BT.

      And it sounds like they are trying to reel you in with the 6 months' offer which saves you another 30. I got this when I joined.

      Why would having line rental make it any more difficult to switch broadband provider?

      Question re: Price Freezes for some Loyal Customers

      Thanks to everyone on SkyUser for the heads up on the price increases.

      I signed up to the Mid broadband package back in January this year and i only have Sky plus right now.

      The reason for choosing the mid package is that i am quite far away from the exchange and currently get a connection speed of about 3.5 Mb.

      These are my current stats,

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4000 kbps 384 kbps
      Line Attenuation 51 db 31 db
      Noise Margin 5 db 14 db

      Im not interested in signing up to the SkyTalk and would rather stay with BT, just because the house phone rarely gets used and the bill is always minimal.

      Is there a 12 month contract when you sign up to Sky broadband? If there is then that will mean that i will have to wait until Janaury '09 before i can migrate to O2.

      So what should i do for the time being? Should i upgrade to Max and pay 10 a month for the extra upload speed and the extra usage? Or just stay on mid and pay the extra 5 per month until i'm able to migrate?

      Also if for example today i call up and ask to be moved on to the Max package does that mean i will have to begin another 12 month contract? Or is there a minimum contract period which will apply?

      Sorry for all the questions, just want to make the right choice while i can.

      Cheers

      re: Price Freezes for some Loyal Customers

      I've just moved over to Sky and have TV, BB and Phone (including line rental) however they haven't quite completed the transfer of my phone service yet. Will I still be in the price freeze category?

      Thanks.

      If you have Max broadband you will be OK.
