      New sky broadband offer !

      No doubt some of you will have seen the new ad on telly for 6 months free broadband (unlimited) which is excellent (But) the problem is this,

      6 months free up to 20Mb broadband: Available to new and existing Sky TV customers in Sky’s network area only. Offer not available to existing Sky Broadband Unlimited customers or in conjunction with any other Sky offer.
      I already have broadband unlimited + talk unlimited and line rental + sky tv which means i can not take the offer Anyway, i phoned them yesterday and they told me the same thing when i asked about taking up the offer (not eligible)

      So i thought if i phoned them back and had my broadband reduced to lets say sky (everyday?) do you think that would make me eligible?

      Just a thought

      I just seen this advert and was rather excited about it till i went to the sky.com/free and read what you quoted.

      It's very disappointing.

      Try blagging cancellations say that you were thinking of leaving and that you saw the offer. They may offer it to you. Don't tell them to cancel though, you may regret it.

      Just tried the cancel trick, It didn't work After about 2 hours of phone calls to 4 different people, Basically there is nothing they can do unless i downgrade or cancel and then re subscribe within 30 days!

      At which time the offer will be over (Ends on 05.02.10) Not to mention i might have no tv/phone and/or broadband for up to 30 days because of swapping packages or cancelling etc.

      I think i have tried everything i can think of right now but if i think of anything else i'll be back here ranting about it
