    • I don't understand the bit about looking after your own being criminal, TJ. Could you expand on that please?
    • A somewhat good result. After more chasing, they've sent me a spreadsheet of the accounts for fire protection, water charges and electric.  Communal Electricity - Estimated £45.00, Actual £241.73 - Revised: £41.63 Communal Water - Estimated £3.66, Actual £234.91 - Revised: £76.96 Fire Protection - Estimated £2.08, Actual £147.65 - Revised: £51.15 Still it seems too high, the total for this estate alone for water charges came to £62,950.07 last year. The thing is, they've listed blocks that don't seem to exist on our estate. Possibly from the new development that has only just been built on the estate, which was finished in the summer this year.     
    • The largest ever amount that went into that account was £500 which was about 7 months before it was blocked.    There was no going forward income as the 1st lockdown came 6 weeks later and I went straight onto universal credit after that and have been on it ever since.    Bottom line, at the time it was the only account I had add and all of my savings of £16500 were in there which I had no access to after it was blocked. Tried to contact the car finance company but no one was available throughout the pandemic likewise many other companies who registered a default
    • so you got the original letter asking for your side of the story and replied by email. post up what you said in your reply by email please and their reply.   you later got a letter stating this will be heard by the simple justice proceedure at xyz court on xyz date but still inviting you comment or plea?   how many time and how many days did you use this for and WHAT EXCATLY (the bit in black) on the letter from the SJP court have you been charged with..??   one specific event on xyz date ,...with other uses being by tickboxes to be taken into consideration and wiped if you agree?   what DATE is the court hearing?
    • A more controversial point is that Johnson has made it illegal to look after your family, requiring you to choose between them.   No one I know doubts or questions that people hosting raves and such like should be prosecuted given the situation, just as those gathering for fox hunts and grouse shoots should be, but effectively making people who are simply trying to safely and sensibly look after their own into criminals while the government pals do whatever they like and are thrown taxpayer money by the BILLION for nothing is obnoxious and abhorrent, especially when you can go to a restaurant or supermarket or transport hub and be in close contact with hundreds of strangers.     Oh look - 6 + 1 in close contact from 14+ households and only one wearing a mask - leading by appallingly bad example.

I'm moving to plusnet from Sky



I phoned Sky to see if I needed to give notice and to tell them to stop my services (broadband and land line) on my contract end date.

But they claim they can't do this because I'm switching to a new ISP.


My concern is that I don't want to be paying for the Sky line rental and broadband

until my service gets switched if anything goes wrong with the switchover date.

..I actually wanted them to stop my services completely but they say no can do.


I can't quite get my head around not being allowed to come out of my contract and stop the services at the contract's end date.


Does this sound normal or are they feeding me a line?

its the usual MO for any company that you switch from.



as long as you ae not in a binding say 12mts contract etc etc



the company you are switching too, normally sorts everything.



and you will be billed to the date of the switch by sky.



see how it goes.




please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

The point I was trying to make though is that



at the moment, because of the deal I made with Sky when I signed up, I pay nothing for my land line and broadband.



If there is a mess-up at the switchover time, which I've arranged to be the day my sky contract ends, and it gets delayed

Sky will start billing me at their full prices until it's sorted out.



I take exception to that and wanted them to completely close my account as It comes to the end of the contract to avoid it.

I don't mind that there would be no service until plusnet get their act together.


They're saying that to close my contract when it comes to the end of its 12 month term I would have to give 14 day's notice,

they would then close it and I'd only then be able to apply to another ISP for a land line and broadband connection.

It seems crazy to me that they can lock me into their service in this way.

Send them a letter stating that you will be terminating the contract on and hereby give notice as per terms of the contract. Remind them that any direct debit authorisation is rescinded and make sure you notify your bank in good time. Sky may play silly buggers in releasing the line to your new supplier, but that will be plusnet's problem not yours.


Also inform Sky that you require a Migration Address Code within seven days as per their statutory obligation or a statement as to why a MAC is not required - If they fail to provide either, you can claim a breach of contract on their part and use it in your defence if things turn ugly.





No... you can't eat my brain just yet. I need it a little while longer.

Don't forget that most ADSL providers will charge a fee if you outright terminate the line rather than transfer it using a MAC code, this is usually around £30.

They're also right that you would need to give notice to outright terminate your services (This is normally 28 days, so 14 days is pretty good really), is there this long left before the end of your contract?

If sky cancel the services plusnet can no longer take them over so you would be without service after sky cancel then plusnet will take 2 weeks to provide a new line with a new number.


I think you may be reading into it too much.


If you still want sky to cancel the line then call them back up but your order from plusnet will stop and cannot be requested until the services have been ceased by sky.
