  • Is a 2 months old thread dead? Let's see...

    What's happened to all those 12 months contracts? Most seem to be 18 months now.

    I am due to renew my contract wth Sky and like most people, I don't really like them but they have offered me a fair deal and the outage in the last 12 months have been much better than the year before.

    They have offered me £20 a month for just the normal broadband for 12 months and a VIP account which works much like O2 priority that I don't really care much to be honest... (I was on a fibre contract before but I didn't see any real speed increase...)

    Sky won't budge and go down to £18, which is what new customers would get, but new customers do have to have to pay a tenner for connection and tie to a 18 months contract, so my offer seems fair, just nothing worth shouting about.

    I once managed to get them to offer me £3 a month for 24 months when they first took over O2, that was proper result... they actually fucked up and offered me triple discount, but by the time they realized it, the contract was signed, sealed and delivered.

    SSE doesn't give discount to their enenrgy customers, Virgins is still not in my area... and other companies all seem to be around the £18-£20 mark. If that's the case, I might as well stick to Sky for another year and see if Virgins will finally be here.

    Any good deal out there I am missing?

  • New house, new Internet today...

  • Holy fuck - am at my father in laws tonight ahead of some work tomorrow.

    In Plymouth we pay about 55 a month for virgin - supposed to be 350 dl speeds - we consistently get about 100 dl / 20 ul with ping of 15.

    Just logged on to his Vodafone gigabit - dl is impressive at 700. but I've literally never seen a 300mb upload speed before. 6 ping. Still not worth moving to Milton Keynes for.
