Sadly I ordered just before they upped it to 100, so I'll just get 75. But before I bought the rep told me on the chat that once I've paid the first bill, can call up to pay the line rental all upfront for a discount.

I wouldn't recommend topcashback for big cashback either. Took over a year for me to get the £100 cashback for EE broadband. QuidCo seem to track faster and pay out easier.

Totally agree! So many people think BT is the best provider and are willing to pay more, but they are atrocious! The underlying problem is actually Openreach which is a separate part of BT. Openreach don't do a very good job these days which is why things go wrong. And it can take them a while to get everything fully fixed (in the interim they broke other things for me! :| ).

BT retail is very poor at taking calls, understanding the problem and chasing up properly with Openreach. Their call centre leaves a lot to be desired. In my experience, Sky has excellent call centres across UK and Europe that are staffed with people that are well trained and will get the job done for you (note they still have to depend on Openreach and their incompetence, but they seem to manage them better). Because of the dependency on Openreach there will always be a bumpy ride when things go wrong, Sky is the lesser of two evils in my opinion.

I agree with both of you. I left sky to be with Bt and they have the worst customer service. They did rectify an issue in regards to my Internet cutting out but only when I complained to them for numerous months.

My contract is up in February so can't wait to go back to sky, I hope by then fibre gets the green light in my area as currently on an 8mb connection is Painful! Especially after moving from my old house where I got close to 18mb :(.

Get away from the big providers and look at some independents.

Origin Broadband looks like the sweet point for service/price right now.
#18
Got this when it was £75 offer. They will charge £20 to switch over too. Router is a bit old now. My speed was 10% higher than my old Talktalk.

Do you used Origin? If so what are they like?

No complaints about sky here,have been with them for broadband on and off for years and never had a problem although quidco cashback was very slow (10 months) this time..

Don't know Origin's pricing but I'd say Sky and Plusnet are probably the sweetspot. Plusnet, although part of BT still runs their own well trained call centre separate from BT's.

£20 connection fee and £9.95 postage. Got activated a few days ago. Getting 9mb download speed, very happy, will cost almost nothing for a year. If the cash back and the prepaid card come through.

Ditto! Don't know whether it's worth the hassle of cancelling the order and doing it again. Might just leave it, still cheap for ~£70 for the year

I'm already with sky (for tv) but not with broadband or telephone. Would I be able to take up this offer?

​The same as any company selling a subscription service, they offer you a fantastic joining deal in the hope you forget to look for a better deal at the end of the contract, and given that many companies do this it must pay off for them.

The only fear I have with this is that as the broadband is provided 'free' then when you have problems you aren't losing a paid for service and, apart from the impact on their reputation, they don't have to fix it quickly.

Deal for New Customers only :-(

This is a fairly common state of affairs with Sky - I signed up 6 months ago for £100 credit on my account and £90 cash back through TCB.
#33
My Sky broadband is due to end in a few weeks, guess you need to have a period of so many months before they would renew as a new customer?

I was last with Sky last year and got 16 Mb/s (Actual Speeds) from their Broadband Service.
I am currently with Plusnet and also get the same 16Mb/s speed.

Upon seeing this deal, I just visited their site and entered my address and phone number, but the projected speeds are significantly lower showing as only between 4.8 - 10.0 Mb/s.

Any ideas why it is quoted as much slower than was before?
Can it be because of this deal Sky are limiting speeds?

Thanks

The current deal for signing up also includes. Either a 32" LG Tv or Lenovo Laptop (Doesn't give specs) £100 amazon gift card or the £100 prepaid Mastercard topup.
