      Moving from o2 LLU to Sky

      Hi all,

      I have my MAC code from o2 and have waited for 7 days so won't get charged for using it.

      My question is that if I transfer my Broadband & Telephone line to Sky will there be any more than a couple of hours downtime, not so much bothered about phone but don't want any length of time without broadband.

      Thanks

      Normally BB is down for a few minutes maximum.

      I came from o2 back to Sky and it was about 4 minutes maximum downtime.

      Re: Moving from o2 LLU to Sky

      Well I moved from O2 to Sky on the 22nd February for my broadband and as far as I know there was only literally a few minutes of downtime. It happened while I was at work, so I just came home, plugged in the router and was away! Phone was changed on the 28th and again I didn't notice a thing.
