      leaving sky broadband but staying with sky talk

      I have the whole shebang from sky, multiroom, sky connect, sky talk and also have my line rental from sky.

      Because of the appalling speeds I am getting from sky, due to their speed cap, and because I also need a static IP address I am looking at moving elsewhere for my broadband

      Can I move to another broadband supplier and still keep my telephone service and line rental from sky

      Cheers in advance

      As it is a BT compatible line you should be able to, but it depends on the ISP's regulations, I think some insist you have rental with BT. This is probably due to the liaison between the ISP and BT when it comes to a faulty line, they will not want complications by dealing with other providers.
