Hi

Anyone got BT Vision?

We currently have Sky for everything – but i’m a bit sick of their inept broadband support. With BT Infinity coming to my area in 6 months or so, i’m likely going to get it, which means i’ll be moving calls and such over anyway eventually. So decided to look at switching over everything now.

We rarely watch Sky – only for kids channels for our son.. It’s kind of a waste of money to be honest.

Is BT Vision any good, as i’ve been looking at their total package and just switching over.

I found btvision ok before i moved to sky. I think you would be very disapointed moving from sky to it though. From what i remember it was just freeview with on demand programes to watch.

No need to use BT to get Infinity, other ISP's will be providing it under a different name.

Have stuck with Sky for TV, just switched over my phone and broadband to BT in wait for Infinity. So sick of SkyBB, it's an absolute joke around here. Support is terrible aswell. Means i pay around £10 extra splitting them over the two, but it's worth it imo.

BT offer the best prices for FTTC, resellers are more expensive. I'd also like to get it from BT, always going to get things much more quickly if you go direct to the source.

Will wait patiently for the next 3-4 months.

Residents and businesses in Burton kicked up a massive fuss, ended up with our MP marching down for a meeting with BT.. Who relented and moved back the FTTC date from Jan 2012 to summer this year. Was in the local newspaper. The exchange has reached capacity, so was a pretty big issue, with new lines being denied broadband.

Spoke to a BT Openworld chap who was fixing a dedicated line into my work today, says they'll be done with the Infinity installs in our town within 2-3 months. So he thinks they'll have just moved up the date they are going to sell it.

It's silly really - Burton Upon Trent is one of the largest exchanges in the country in terms properties it services (30,000+). Should of been one of the first they went at.

Sounds like just a waiting game then, I can understand why your waiting for infinity.
id avoid switching anything until you are able to get the infinity package as you don't want to get tied into any contracts.
From what I remember bt vision was pretty much totally free if you take a broadband package, I'd wait and get it. if you don't like it stick with the sky but phone up and try get something knocked off, going rate for retentions is 25 to 30% I believe.

Not true, they have to give a level playing field to all ISP's, BT have a terrible reputation as an ISP, not forgetting their long stitch in contracts.

Yeah, sky offered me 25% off for 12 months. I just can't handle the support, it's terrible.. When something goes wrong with your broadband, it's a massive up hill battle. I've been with BT, Pipex, Nildram and others for broadband, Sky ranks as the worst experience for me support wise.

I've switched to BT now as the router provided with BT broadband is the same as the one with BT Infinity, so it'll be an easy change when Infinity is enabled. Also, wanted to get off Sky anyway.

Yes - very true.. If only from a cost perspective.

All the resellers i've seen have prices far exceeding that of BT. Also, most other sellers have usage limits split over peak / non peak times. Where BT is unlimited with a 300GB fair usage. Overall, resellers are around double the price of BT.

Example of top tariffs for BT and resellers:

BT:

Cost: £25.60 per month
Usage Limit: Unlimited (300GB fair usage)

Eclipse

Cost: £49.95
Usage Limit: 200GB

Zen:

Cost: £55
Usage Limit: 200GB

(Can get a 500GB one, but thats £65)

IDNET:

Cost: £47.99
Usage Limit: 400GB

All other providers have 12 month contracts, BT is 18 months.
