I don't use my phone, how many providers will give me broadband (fibre) without it & the stupid line rental fee?

f**king sucks! We pay near that for 50mb basic channels and a phone line we don't use. I'll be glad when the contract is up tbh.
The only way to get it "cheap" is to keep switching between sky and virgin at the end of each contract and take up the new customer deals.

Or just stick to freeview

Pretty sure the answer is none apart from virgin.

Broadband uses your phone line so makes no odd really.

Honestly we basically only have freeview channels anyway the only plus is the recording option, when contract is up thinking of just going for an internet package and getting some sort of tv recorder so we can keep track of the stuff we usually watch.

Will see when the time comes I guess, your deal was through the lad on here too iirc wonder how much that helps.

I was about to cancel my sky as got a you view box for free from talktalk. But found out my aerial socket doesn't work FFS, and there is no Dave on freesat!!!

How would you cope without 4746362 episodes of top gear each day??

My aerial socket doesn't work, so no freeview.

Can still use the sky dish for freesat, but there is no Dave on freesat :(

Thread just helped me sign a client, cheers CS.

Compared the cost of his insurance (protecting his kids) to the cost of his sky bill (TV) - he had no option but to say yes. Lol.

<3 CS.

Virgin 160mb fibre (soon to be 200mb in April), all Channels apart from sky movies. Sky sports (not HD) phone free at weekends (never use it).
And a second box in kids room.
£80 per month.
 
I pay £78 a month for phone, 50mb broadband and TV package without Sky Sports or Movies.

We've realised that we watch f**k all on it really apart from the free view channels. When I get time I'm going to ring them and see what the basic TV and broadband package is.

Let me know what price they give you.
£41.99 for 50mbps 60channels and line rental (Y)

I've gotta say, the TiVo box is absolutely awful! Not impressed with it at all. If I could be arsed I'd ring up and moan about it

Our V+ box is over 6.5 years old and plays up more and more now. The TiVo has to be a similar age so could do with an upgrade at some point.

We're paying around £70 a month for virgin medium to package, line rental, and 100mb broadband. I need to ring them and tell them were thinking of leaving as we've just came out of contract, should get it right down then hopefully.

I also have the best toaster money can buy, £100 off eBay.

Thanks to this thread I've just checked my sky package and apparently from February it's going up from £39.90 to £54!
17.50 line rental
7.50 broadband
30.00 variety package

f**k that its already gone up 10 quid plus some weird charge I got last month which I still can't figure out what for.
Think my contract ends in Feb so gonna cancel the TV package. I moved in November does that mean I've entered another year contract or not? My mum thinks I have.
