    Question Can you cancel broadband contract early

    I'm 8 months into an 18 month sky fibre broadband contract but there's now a company offering ultrafast fibre (up to 1Gbps) in our town and I'm tempted to switch to them. Anyone else found themselves in this position? I'm just not sure if it's possible to cancel my broadband contract early and...

    £39 per month basic Sky / Broadband / Phone package. Any pitfalls?

    Hi All. My aging mother is moving house and has the opportunity to change from Virgin to Sky when she does so. She only needs TV, broadband and a telephone line to support. The £39 per month deal looks good, plus there's the introductory gift incentive for me as well. Is there anything other...

    Question Broadband installation not completed due to cable fault

    Hi All, I had an OpenReach Engineer attend my new home on Tuesday (9th June) as no prior broadband or ’phone line had been supplied to the property, or at least for a while. They were unable to provide a working line due to a fault from where it enters the house to the street. There seems to be...

    4G home broadband

    Hi all, Since realising I've been overpaying for a while since my contract ran out with plusnet, I saw something about 4G home broadband and it caught my interest. We currently can only get ADSL, and whilst we're overpaying atm, we've been offered £17.99 a month from plusnet to create a new...

    Virgin made a big effort to reach out to me and save me £17 a month, that I didnt ask for

    I have had my few quibbles with virginmedia over the years (I think I've been with them for about fifteen years now), especially when my bills suddenly go up without any courtesy warning, or the odd few downtimes, or the suspect "super" hub performance and limitations...but I never had any real...

    How to disable 4G+ in favour of 4G - Three mobile broadband

    My Three mobile broadband connection has been temperamental recently. I've been through support, and they found some issue with the signal in my area. However, I noticed at the time that my router was displaying 4G+, and when they 'fixed' the issue, it then displayed 4G. Today it's...

    Question Upgrading SKY broadband to Virgin?

    Hi folks, Bit of a tech novice here, so bear with me. Been with SKY for many years and had endless troubles (although their customer service and response is impecible!) Finally got an engineer (about 10th time!) out who discovered that my apartment runs on Virgin cables - the other is broken...

    not sure if this is in the right place but, I just switched from Sky to Vodafone (cheaper and faster ) but..I had a CCTV set up before which would replay on my TV. That still works fine but I also had Smarteyes set up on my mobile devices so I can view from my phone/tablet. This no longer works...

    What master socket for Vodafone broadband?

    When I moved into my house I removed the master socket for replastering and probably lost it (or thrown it away). I have had Virgin Media during the last year, but have now requested Vodafone broadband. The previous owner had internet with a non virgin provider so the phone line should already...

    Sky Hub with Virgin Broadband

    I've moved house and they didnt have Sky Fibre in my new area so I have had to go with Virgin Media for internet and kept sky Q. It seems that the walls are made of lead or something and the virgin router isn't good enough to transmit Wifi to all the rooms very well. I was wondering if I can...

    I'd be interested to hear from others. I have a business BT Fibre (to road box) then standard connection to my flat. I get an average 65mb download speed (which is what BT guarantee on my business contract). Whilst I rarely struggle with buffering I would like more. A friend has a Virgin 350mb...

We've been assessing costs/usage and we never use the home phone line, and 99% of what we record with Tivo is on Freeview so...

    Hello My EE router is downstairs in the front room next to the master socket. Where possible I prefer using ethernet connections to devices. Looking for a solution which allows ethernet cable directly to an upstairs bedroom/office. One option is to have a local sparky run a cable from the...
