I do appologise for asking this question on this forum, but you have all been so helpful in the past with my queries. I currently have Tiscali broadband at £14.67 per month until October this year. But i want to get SKY £16.50 package while it is on offer, which offers free calls, broadband and tv channels. Ok my question is can i stay with Tiscali until my contract runs out but not have their router plugged into my phone line?, get Sky and use their broadband and router?. It does go on about getting a MAC code from your previous broadband supplier. Does this mean i cant use Sky broadband?.

If you are contracted till October then you will have to wait until then, there are always going to be offers from Sky so i wouldn't worry too much.

Normally takes about 14 days to activate a sky connection so you want to arrange your MAC code and transfer to allow for that...

you can an only have 1 supplier of broad band you can pay a penalty to tiscali and get out of it as said above sky always do offers so wait would be the best option. once your commitment is complete then get a mac code from tiscali and give it to sky. they will send you a change date and router and sometime that day tou will be switched.

Tiscali may well let you transfer now and give you a MAC code - but they would expect you to pay ALL of the fees due up until October.

I have an email from Tiscali telling me that there UK arm has been bought out by Carphone warehouse. I rang them up and they told me that at the end of the month because Tiscali will be carphone warehouse i can get out of my contract free. Great news but it wont be before the Sky offer is finished. Guess you guys are right though, another offer will come along.
