Another house move another Openreach fail. Last time I moved I was with Plusnet and it took Openreach six weeks to connect me. This time it's been four weeks since I moved and still waiting.
I've been told they've finished the work at the local cabinet--three weeks to send an engineer to connect our building--and a new phone line order should now be able to proceed. Ideally I'd like to avoid Openreach altogether but Virgin aren't available at my address.
SamKnows says my exchange is Primrose Hill:
I'm interested in:
Sky: ADSL £18.99 a month + £9.95 connection + 12 month contract
NOW TV: Fibre £29.99 a month + £44 connection + 1 month contract
My old ISP wanted around £80 inc. VAT for a new line connection so those two deals look good. I'm aware that NOW TV is a subsidiary of Sky and based on those numbers I would go for the NOW TV fibre package.
Have I missed anything or does anyone have any comments before I commit. We may relocate in a year so want a monthly or one year contract at the most. I believe SKY is LLU so they have some independence from Openreach if I understand correctly.
