I need Broadband without added line rental??


[link to this post]
 
I was a o2 customer until Sky bought it up. I was on £5 month Broadband until next month, then it goes up to £12.50.
I think the broadband has gone down since Sky brought it.
I don't want to switch my line rental from Primus.
I have the basic Sky as well.
Is there a Broadband company that just does Broadband without me having to change my line rental?
I asked for my MAC code from Sky, and got the heavy sales pitch to switch my line rental to them, to get a lower Broadband bill....

Thanks
Julie

Plusnet. They charge a little more for it if the line rental is elsewhere, and the really cheap joining deals usually don't apply.

Currently a few FTTC users are experiencing congestion. Whether it is Plusnet or BT Wholesale at fault doesn't seem clear to me. Most of us see no problem.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 57.1/14.8Mbps @ 600m. - IPv4BQM IPv6BQM

Yes, lots smile

I'm with Freeola(via Entanet FTTC) and have my line rental with Zen.
(I wish Freeola did have a phone + BB package though!)

I think the majority of providers will let you sign up for broadband without having to move your line rental...

Yes, I think it's just BT/Sky/TalkTalk and EE that usually make it compulsory.

Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 56.5/15.0Mbps @ 600m. - IPv4BQM IPv6BQM
