Sky broadband/tv/phone V Bt broadband/tv/phone..Opinions please

Found 27th Oct 2009
We are currently paying Sky a pretty penny for our phone, broadband, family package plus sky+ hd. Bills tend to be around £50-£70 per month, depending if we have had to call mobiles or numbers outside exclusion on phone deal.

We were interested in Bt a while back, but didn't have the broadband here. We do now.

So what do you think? Do you prefer BT Vision, or your Sky telly? How is the broadband?
I have until Monday to decide, as chap is calling back then.

Thanks in advance of any replies.

what broadband and TV package are you on specifically?

We have the family package £21, and the broadband is £15(I believe) , phone is £5 24/7 free calls (except mobiles, etc) Plus a tenner for phone line.

I went from BT to Sky, and haven't regretted it one bit. Wealso have Family Pack, HD, line rental, Sky Talk and Broadband.

looking at MySky, we are on 10mg broadband. Kyalion, can I ask why you changed from Bt to Sky? Thanks

So...

6 Pack - £21.50
Line Rental - £11
Sky Talk Unlimited - £5
Broadband Unlimited - £10 or Everyday - £5

£47.50 or £42.50?

Mostly due to high charges for phone bills and crappy internet service. This was nearly 2yrs ago.

Actually it must be £52.50, as I forgot to add we have sky+ which is an extra £10. It did say everyday on the MySky info.

Ahh right, forgot the HD Pack. If you downgraded your package to BT Vision standards you'd save £4 off your package and £9.75 for the HD Sub but don't listen to me, I'm incredibly biased considering I work for Sky

:-D Thanks for your honesty Robotochan! The costs seem pretty similar to me, it would of been more about quality of broadband, and telly choice. Or will it be a case of changing for change sake?

Telly choice, you'd be silly to move to BT Vision, Freeview with some on demand content?

You should be on a package deal but sounds like you are paying individually. Broadband is £10 max when taken out with phone and a sky package, phone should be free except the £10.50 line rental (£1.50 extra if you have paper bills).

Hi Lumoruk. I have the package. Broadband is only a fiver because of this. I pay an extra £5 for phone so I have 24/7 free calls. Not just evening and weekends.
