adsl providers
just weighing up my options after my call to origin.

Through Quidco i can get as follows

Sky - £110 cash back for sky broadband + £25 M&S voucher £3.75/month plus £15.40/month line rental. end tonight

EE - £130 cash back for unlimited internet and evening and weekend calls £2.50/month
plus £130 cash back for paying my line rental upfront. year cost £136. basically EE would be paying me £94 to have all of this for free! Ends in 4 days

whats people thoughts?

RE: adsl providers
yea but the temptation of basically having a free service and given £94 for the pleasure is tempting. no line rental or internet to pay. from what i'm paying now it would be a £60/month saving

RE: adsl providers
I assume Sky is a 12 month contract?..Sky's LLU is very stable and good and £60 a month is £720 a year..Maybe in a year we may have a solution for the Digital Region cabling?.

Just note though, cashback is not guaranteed.

As I say, my friend has moved to VivaCiti and has a good amount of control over his line to squeeze bandwidth out..whats your estimate with Sky?

RE: adsl providers
If you speak to SKY, and get the right CS agent, they can check your line and get you an estimate. However, if you get the wrong CS agent they will insist that you need a new line istalled Big Grin

The on-line checker falls over, I think, because you are currently connected to a service it doesn't recognise. When I spoke to Mr Right I get exactly the same results as the BT and PlusNet on line checks, which is twice as good as the Origin estimation Sad.

RE: adsl providers
Well Sky's LLU should match at minimum of what the BT network gives so I'd put an extra half meg at least on top of any estimate..thats a guess though

RE: adsl providers
Just been informed by Origin that their online checker is weighted "on the pessimistic side" and that they believe their offering will match BT/PlusNet.

@john22rob - presumably now that the SKY offer has ended you will have made a decision. How'd it go?

RE: adsl providers
I'm leaning towards EE, it would save me £814 in one year!
Sky will no doubt have another offer on quidco in a few days. I do have sky LLU in my exchange so still something to think about
