No other providers can provide a dial tone over a VM line. Look at this deal ]here it may get you the BT install reduced. Sky may also be an option, they will refund you the 124.99 if you take sky talk (so I'm told).

This is true. I had VM for a long time and got fed up and wanted sky, as did the wife. I phoned sky and asked i i could just change to them as i thought you could and they said you have to have a BT line. I said that i would take Sky World (£45 a month) and sky talk and they said theyd refund me the cost of BT install.

This might be your best way to go......if sky dont go with it, say something like, oh well i cant afford the BT install so ill have to leave it......99% is youll get put through to someone who can make a descision and get what you want - goodluck anyhow.

It's probably not your best solution, but you could consider mobile broadband. For around £15 a month on Three you can get 3GB/month download, or half-price if you're already a customer.

I have it, in addition to regular VM broadband, since I like to be able to browse whilst on the go and it's generally very good. I get around 1 megabit download speeds, which is fine for general browsing.

Wouldn't be my first choice for broadband, but it's something that could be considered in a pinch!

Just out of interest (and being a total klutz) - why don't you just go for Virgin broadband?

Are they really that bad/expensive?
