Yup, another dreary post from someone who really just needs to make up his mind now that the door is quickly closing in my face from BE and Sky are hot on my heels….
Was hoping to wait and see what will happen just before I leave my BE days behind me but it appears that Sky are looking to move me across in early February. So, reviewing my options and it appears that I've come down to the same two that many others have oft contemplated.
Sky are offering me their Pro FTTC package for 30 quid pcm. Line rental is free for 12 months and they have thrown in a £75 incentive after twisting their arm.
PlusNet are offering me the same FTTC at £19.99 if I buy the line rental in advance at £131.88. But, it's an 18mo agreement. I'm sure everyone knows the offer so won't bore with the rest.
Trouble is, Sky's bung makes the numbers look far more appealing and we all know that it's a numbers game nowadays. I can either cancel Sky in a year's time or renegotiate so that the line rental doesn't become a problem.
Both packages will be fine for what I need the 'net for so that is not an issue. However what am I missing as a decider? There seems to be good/bad feedback on both in somewhat equal amounts. I'm not one to fart about on such decisions but for the contractual lengths mentioned this is not something I want to kick myself for a few months in….
Should I take the punt with the behemoth that is Sky or rest easy knowing that taking the 18mo contract with PlusNet is mitigated by the service they offer and rekindle those early days with a newcomer like BE (and Bulldog before them)?
