Well, they keep taking the money and it still works otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this!

Perhaps they’ve stopped taking on new domestic customers? .... but how would they know that you’re a domestic customer?

Why do you want to leave Sky, and what are you looking for in an ISP?

Who else is providing services at your exchange? (Check at https://availability.samknows.com/broadband/exchange_search)

Although it operates as a separate business Plusnet is owned by BT.

I was with Virgin for years, but service unreliable (oversold in my area), and the price kept sneaking up.

Left and went with plusnet, I’ve been happy, like the fact that call centre is in U.K.
