      Worthwhile?

      I've decided to make the move to Sky Broadband (Max) (already have Sky+). Obviously, the 25 activation charge is making me consider Sky Talk.

      Is it worth going for it or should I just swallow the one-off activation charge? I'd probably choose the 5 one to get the int'l calls. At the moment, we have Together Unlimited Anytime and quarterly bills average about 75 (a lot of the cost of which seems to be attributable to 0845 numbers).

      I'm in the process of trying to see if I'm contracted with BT, but if I'm not, what do you guys think I should do?

      Re: Worthwhile?

      I've changed everything to Sky, I originally wasn't going to transfer my line rental but after an argument with BT who kept chasing me and threatning me for money I didn't owe them I left them completely. The only problem with Sky is the expensive calls to 0845 etc. numbers but for me I don't call them much and I'm finding it a lot cheaper.

      I've just spoken to BT and I'm contracted until March 2008, so it looks like I'll just be going with the broadband, but I'll certainly consider switching then. Thanks for the information.
