Our current broadband and landline (with BT) expires in a couple of days and we're trying to find the quickest way to get something else up and running asap, but we need a 3 month contract for both.
We're half way through a 6 month contract for our flat; up to now the previous tenant had not disconnected her BT landline+broadband connection and we were paying her. Now she's terminated the contract for the end of this week, but our chosen provider (O2) is looking at 2 weeks for landline+broadband unless we have a mac code.
BT says we can't have a mac, as we're finishing the landline contract - is this correct?
Can anyone thing of any other ways we could get a service in less than 2 weeks time? Maybe a different provider that can do both quicker? or has anyone persuaded BT into a less than 12 month contract for the landline only (so we could get a mac by keeping the line)?
We're happy to pay more than the going rate if we can actually get a service sooner.
