I'm considering swapping ISP from Sky who I have had for 3 years and not had one problem, to Talk Talk or BT. When I joined Sky, I had to pay £18 a month for 5mb d/l speed and got free evening and weekend calls. With line rental and light monthly phone use I am getting £45 bills. Looking at what Sky offer new customers now compared to what I pay, I feel i'm getting a very poor deal
I keep getting leaflets/mail from other suppliers both offering the same internet connection speed, line rental but unlimited phone calls 24 hours for £25-£27, and with 3 months free. That is a hell of a saving to what i'm paying now. I can only imagine the isp will be as stable as it uses the same lines etc.
Can anyone tell me if any isp is better than the other, or anything I should be aware of? I think I can get an uninterrupted change over with BT and I see that my local exchange is getting the new Infinity service from the end of March 2011. as soon as this goes live, do all services providers provide the higher bandwidths straight away or do BT hold the aces for a time?
My mrs wouldn't like to lose her sky.com email address though. Can this be kept once sky is cancelled?
