This is my first post, so be gentle.
I'm just in the process of moving house and need to get broadband installed at a new address. There's already a line there so BT will connect for free, however, they only seem prepared to do this if i sign up to a 12-month contract. This is a pain as I wanted to go with Talk Talk and pay them for line rental. Is there any way round having line connected and having to pay BT for a year? As the only company that can connect lines, isn't the requirement to sign up for a year in breach of trading regulations? What are my options?
Also, if i have to pay rental to BT, what broadband provider would people recommend?
Has anyone had any experience of Redten Internet. £12.99 looks good for broadband and a PC but reading previous posts they sound highly dodgy! Any feedback would be much appreciated.
