    having just recently moved into a property (September) i have just been through this process , firstly i was going to go with sky for broadband and was chuffed when they said they would reconnect the phone line for around £25 (i had heard of the dreaded £125 form BT) but was then told they could only offer me the sky connect package which was rubbish.

    in the end cutting a long story short i ended up with BT reconnecting the phone line and they did charge me £125 for flipping that bloody switch, i did argue the toss with them but to no avail they charged me anyway and then they sent me a letter saying thanks for agreeing to a 18month contract and because i had they would waive the reconnecting fee.

    all i can say about BT is be very careful i didnt see anything anywhere about a 18 month contract.

    and if you can get on cable jump on it i was with them for about ten years and never had any real problems with them, connection and downloads were spot on ( i would personally dig up my own path to get that gorgeous piece of fibre in)

    It's not fibre to your home; it's fibre to the cab (little green box).

    I would love to get cable in - but it's not available

    They were digging up the road (Virgin Media) last year and laying it but it's not live yet - I wonder when it will go live in my area?
