Sky BB on SMPF


[link to this post]
 
Has anyone managed this recently?

I.e taking Sky BB without them taking your phone line as well?

There was someone not many months ago managed to get it, as they were still well within contract for the phone somewhere else. Whether they would have to move it over when that contract expires I don't know, but the poster didn't say so.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk
Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost. Connection - Plusnet Extra Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 56.0/13.9Mbps @ 600m.

They must have been with Sky for quite some time and not a new customer.
It is possible via the cancellations route however extremely rare.

If it was a new customer I will be very shocked & look into it.

I managed to get it SMPF about two years ago now. I told them when ordering it over the phone that I was in contract with BT and my line and rental must remain with them.

I guess I could try it again, but MPF isn't an option unless Sky can tell me they'll be live when my cabinet goes live for FTTC or I can exit my contract if they aren't.
