they will discount 40/10 without tv but not 80/20 thats why I asked.  So you should still be able to get a deal.

@Chrysalis
Called Sky today as the last discount (which was Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro with a 10 per month discount for 10 months with a 12 month re-contract from 2 April 2015) ended yesterday. Asked for a downgrade from the 80/20 to the 40/10 and was told that it wasn't permitted until the end of the re-contract term which is in 2 months time.

Following a short but amicable discussion about pricing for "up to 76Mbps" services with a couple of their mainstream competitors, I was very surprised (especially given that it's barely a month since our Sky TV ceased) to get offered a 10 per month discount for 12 months to continue on Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro, in exchange for a 12 month re-contract on Sky Talk & Broadband from today.

I suppose I could have tested the waters by pushing for a downgrade to 40/10 AND a discount, but I was happy to accept and continue on the current basis for another year.

So yes there are still deals to be done with Sky!

nice, in the world of retentions its a lucky dip. You drawn a winning ticket.

I think thats a cracking deal, sky fibre pro at pricing comparable to plusnet but a much better network.

  The TTB congestion seems to have vanished both me and other victims (see current BQM below) and given the not uncommon trouble arising during a move from either TT or TTB, I have decided to leave matters as they are until I see whether any G.INP or other upgrade appears for ECI cabs this year.  If it ever happens for ECI's then G.INP would probably stop the TTB setting of a stable FTTC DLM profile from bothering me.

    TTB dealt with the issue very reasonably apart from a persistent message that the network work team only treat congestion issues seriously after an engineers visit to check things.  I eventually persuaded then that an engineer visit would be waste of their money but it took a few calls on separate days (all answered in minutes) to get someone who actually overrode the need for an engineer visit.

does anyone know if the ES/day threshold on g.inp profiles is lowered or left at the same?
