Re: Previous house owners' post

Yes, I believe you are supposed to cross out address (but make sure it's still readable) and mark 'Return to sender- not at this address'
Not sure if this is current policy though

Re: Best 'basic' broadband?

Thanks all, looking like PlusNet at the moment. Checking reconnection fees, but assume they are fixed by BT so there isn't going to be much of a variation between ISPs.

Re: Best 'basic' broadband?

I'm using an O2 dongle at the mo, but it's too expensive for me as I tend to use a lot of data if working from home (fine for occasional stuff)

Re: Best 'basic' broadband?

Yes, I was 'expecting' to have to pay a re-connection charge - should have made this clear in o/p - this needs to be included in the sums. Will have a look at uSwitch again

I'm after a basic broadband package.
I don't have a fixed phone line connection (although I have a 'physical' line and BT master socket)
