      i rang the number given on sky.com but the agent i spoke to didnt have a clue, so he put me through to cs and explained to them i didnt want moving over and he said he'd sort it for me.
      ive also sent an email to sky asking them to confirm it so ive got a record if any "mistakes" are made....just make sure you do it b4 the 1st aug....

      Re: Sky Broadband Changes - 22nd June

      I am on the max package at the mo, called sky yesterday for info on dates etc when I will go to the 20mb service, she didnt have a clue on what she was saying. she said it was just a name change and no speeds are changed. She was calling me a lier etc. I couldnt believe what she was saying to me so I asked for my MAC code and I have just ordered my o2 broadband. So as soon as I recieve it I can give o2 the code and they will continue with my order.

      bye bye sky, hello o2.

      the winner takes it alllllllll.... do do do dooo do dooooooo......

      If Sky have calculated that most Mid users will stay within 10GB then they will probably also have calculated that the number of subscribers upgrading to Max will balance out those that will jump ship. I don't think a forum like this is representative of the Sky user base as a whole.

      Anyway, time for clueless n00b question: what's the deal with O2? The equivalent package to Mid with them is 12.23 a month. That's more than Sky Max (if you have Sky Talk). And what makes anyone think that O2 aren't aware of what's going on elsewhere and ready to bump their prices or usage limits in the next 6 months?

      I switched to Sky from PlusNet (part of BT) because I was using more than their standard 15GB cap. I was paying 15 a month, but stuck with them for their great customer service. In the end, 10 a month with Sky plus 12 months free Sky Talk line rental - if I took Sky HD - was too good a deal to refuse so I signed up.

      I'm not sure now about the Sky LLU unbundling but if it costs me money to get a BT line back in the future then I'm still no worse off overall. Most companies will try to lock you in to 12 month or longer contracts - so long as they all expire around the same time then switching is usually possible without too much difficulty nowadays.

      Here is a quote from Sky Perks email received this morning.

      Dear M




      Your feedback is really important to us and we're always keen to listen when you tell us what you'd like us to do differently.

      Are they joking or what ? Thats why they making all the changes to broadband without even telling anybody. What a joke

      For any Mid customer who does not want Sky Talk or uses more than 10GB it really is a no brainer!

      The deal is that O2 is only 7.34 per month if you have an O2 mobile (free sim cards are available) and top it up by 10 per quarter (Every 10 topup = 11 of calls). You can also get 70 cashback through Quidco at the moment.

      That's only 58.08 net (or 4.84 per month!) for 12 months unlimited up to 8Mb broadband and that also includes 44.00 worth of mobile calls!

      Therefore the O2 Standard Home Broadband package (up to 8MB with unlimited downloads) actually only costs an UNBELIEVABLE 14.08 net for the whole of the first year or 1.17 per month!

      Beat that Sky??? Don't think so!

      Then bye bye Sky you greedy grasping gets!...Hello O2!

      Hell hath no fury like a customer scorned and I hope this little kick in the nuts brings you to your senses but somehow I doubt it?

      the winner takes it alllllllll.... do do do dooo do dooooooo......
