Switched Back - So Far So Good!


[link to this post]
 
Switched back to Sky around two weeks ago, had been with Pulse8 for two years. Hard to resist as they gave me Sky Fibre Max and landline for £30 a month and I was paying £50.

Lost the static IP address but to be honest I was only using it for the monitoring on TBB, switched to f8lure which works with dynDNS and all is good, if anything my speeds are up 2-3mb per second!

I'm just about to leave as they are charging me approx £38 for just the up to 38 service with no phone calls at all.

Not sure if the deal I had was for new and existing customers, don't remember seeing it excluded existing customers. In fact saw it on here and rang Sky to check if I could get it as I already have TV etc.

Have you called and asked them for the deal? I'm under contract for the 40/10 service and paying similar and they offered me the deal, no hassle at all. In fact when I logged into my sky account the deal was there for me to do online in the my offers section. I would be surprised if they never gave you it.

I phoned and the only deals they could offer were on TV, nothing to reduce the BB cost down.

So I started the migration process on Tuesday and the "sorry you are leaving letters" arrived today with a different number to call incase I'd changed my mine and wanted to stay, so I'll give them a call in the morning and see if they can offer a better deal.

Sky Fibre Cheapest is £35 for Sky Fibre Max or £30 for Sky Fibre Unlimited at the moment.
