      changing from talktalk

      hi all, hope someone can help, my contract with talktalk ends on 17th october and want to take my broadband and talk package from talktalk to sky where i already have sky tv, iv phoned sky who have said that i need to contact bt to reconnect to a bt active line before i can get sky broadband, sumthin to do with local loop unbundled, what i want to know is if i activate a line with bt will i be tied to a contract with them and how much will it cost to do it?

      I futher contacted bt who said it would be free to change back to bt but would be in a contract with them plus i may loose my telephone number i currently have, im desperate to change from talktalk as weve had no end of trouble with them and their customer services, but dnt want to go with the expense of bt.

      Hope someone can throw me a lifeline from talktalk

      afaik You would have to enter into a 12 month agreement with BT.

      To get Sky BB you need an active BT provided phone line.

      Well you will probably be tied in to a 12 month contract with BT's line rental, but that is the only way we can accomadate your broadband and telephone tarrif for now. Find out if there is a lesser contract. 5 days after BT have your line active, contact us and we can give you free bb (depending on your exchange - 17 otherwise) and free eve. weekend calls to UK landlines (5 for Unlimited)

      I thought you said that BT would transfer the line for free!

      That is a very good offer - the usual price in October is 130.

      I'm not sure why you say BT is expensive; line rental is about 50p a month more than Sky and you can use override operators with BT such as call18185 whereby you can talk for an unlimited time to any 01- or 02- number for 5p

      It would be a little unusual to lose your number, too.

      Regards,

      felix

      Who do you want to provide your line rental, BT or Sky?

      If Sky then you may be caught up with poor systems.... in that maybe sky can only transfer line rental from a current BT line.

      Personally (and it is just my opinion), I would habe my line rental with BT and just broadband and voice calls with sky.
