    Question Deals limited for those who cant get Fibre - Currently with BT

    Not that long ago, I started to look to change. Simply for the saving. Been with BT for over two years now, 1, they will not update my reouter, without money and 2, they are not willing to offer any kind of reduction even with my threats to just move. I am no longer tied in after all.

    However, there are now some deals for Broadband, but not many, most offer large saving for fibre, something we simply cannot get.

    I guess,
    - anyone know of any Broadband offers?
    - If i am getting X speed with BT is that going to be the same with other
    - third option. Cancel my set up and have wife take out next getting current deal and new broadband.

    Other issues are, do i keep phone with BT, limiting us even more, or swap phone. Do we keep the number (not at all essenatial, but worth knowing).

    Cheers all,
    Good to be back!

    Mobileman,
    Cheers, I am not a Sky Fan, but I will look again. I am on QuidCo, this offer must not have been there, or, perhaps more so, I overlooked it.
    If we cant keep number, for that money, I am not fussed. We, like most now, dont really use the house phone. It will only be handful we need to give it out to.

    Cheers.....Q

    Interesting,
    Found the deal. Sky say not in my area, only gives my Sky BB Connect at full price.
    Now, our neighbours have Sky TV and BB. But interestingly enough when I checked EE (statign BB, not Fibre) it also said not in my area.
    Plusnet and others do not have my address on the list, but when manually entered does offer connection.
    Upon the Postcode, both my neighbours address's were present. My address was present with Sky.
    Ha, I thought this kind of thing was meant to be more simple nower days

    Going to give Sky a call tomorrow.

    Cheers.....Q

    EDIT
    Right, very confused, entered neighbours details (other side, no sky) as a cheeky look and they can get Fibre.... I know the area I live, no one has fibre, there was an effort to get us connected. Further more, if I choose, keep my number (previously choose option not to) then it too says I can get Fibre. BT check, Fibire (as known) not available in your area.

    Now, my immidate thought it, Quidco, Sign up to great cashback for something I cannot get and argue the point... But, then I know ultimatly I will be without connection for some time.

    More pain!

    As above, use [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Its the most accurate checker.

    PM about to be sent.
    I have come back, as that site (sam) reports (I must be reading wrong) the exchange is not Fibre Ready. However, I have learnt we have been since Sept last year, but follinwg call with BT, appretnly details have not been updated to reflect this.

    Preference for me now is Fibre, but wish to get a deal and no slow down.

    Cheers all

    If you can get Fibre then PLUSNET is the best option imho..... BUT only if you dont use the landline.
    If you use the landline they hammer you on call charges.

    Thanks,
    With our mobile deals we coudl get by, Small issue of having to go to far reaching corners of the house to get signal. The missus never uses landline unless I pester. Bottom line is not to plug in a phone!
