      Sorry about that, just seemed to send itself, anyway as I was saying, saw Brother-in-law today, and mentioned Sky Broadband not being available in our area yet (we both are connected to the same exchange), he tells me he received a letter from Sky telling him it won't be available in our area for about 6 months, don't think Brother-in-law will have registered, he doesn't have a PC!!, I have both and haven't received any letter, anyone know if such a letter exists for customers on North Bolton...

      No Problem John I just deleted it

      Yes Sky do send out letters to there customers I had one months ago said more or less the same thing but my exchange was Easynet enabled just over a month ago so its possible that it could happen anytime, my advice to you would be to go to samknows.com and find your exchange and the register your email address with them to be notified when any changes happen to it thats how I found out about my exchange.

      If they did suspend new sign ups for a few weeks then I don't think to many people would complain if they just communicated with people who have registered with them. Communication plays a key part for any company and even a quick couple of lines in a e-mail explaining what is going on wouldn't go a miss.

      Sky have people who have signed up to broadband tied to a 12 month contract which means they also have you signed up to their TV service for 12 months. I'm on Mid paying 5 a month but I also have a Sky digital subscription that costs me 21.50 a month so either way they won't really loose much money.

      Assuming I don't change my TV package or upgrade any of my services Sky will get 358 from me this year a lot more than an ISP offering broadband at 15.99 a month.

      I have had letter from sky not about my exchange but more about SBB, I have had a good few emails keeping me updated and my area aswell.


      What i think Sky should have done is rolled it out but done it by what sky package you have IE all channels first choice ect ect.
      That would have rolled it out at a good pace and stoped them looking stupid

      But are you happy with your tv service or was you about to drop them if not then any sky customer if the net service works out must be on a winner?
      just out of interest if i decided to drop down to the minimal tv service would it affect my sbb, and pay more than 21 a month near 40
      Also if say i got the sack tomorrow and want to drop sky tv but still keep my net connection what does the contract say about that.

      btw most isp would make you sign a 12 month contract bt did with me @ 29 so ask me what i would rather pay 29 or 10
      385 this year or your tv plus a different isp ? do the maths i know i will be on a winner sorry if ive misread your post but i dont see the logic.

      Not really if you are a long term Sky customer getting SkyBB will make very little difference to you if you are tied to a 12 month contract for SkyBB (or at least I wouldn't have thought so anyway) and your outlay per month and since you are already paying for Sky TV the extra 5 for an ISP is saving you quite a lot of money, so comparing the total cost for Sky against the total cost of having just Sky TV and a normal ISP you would then be paying 449.88 instead of 358
