BT and Broadband

Hi All

My friend whose recently moved out had broadband using BT light user scheme i.e incoming calls only. He has since taken this connectin with him. When i enquired about braodband with my current ISP, they sid i should speak with BT as there seemed to be a problem with the line. When i spoke iwth BT they asid i needed to have a basic telephone srevice ie both ways in order to have broadband.

Is this the case??? My mate worked quite happily on broadband with incoming calls only. ARE bt PULLING A FAST ONE or so i really need a basic phone service.

Any suggestions appreciated.

I think your friend was telling porkies. BT do not do 'incoming calls only' on residential lines.

There should be no connection charge if you are taking over an existing line.
