    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?
