Re: sale to Sky

Pablo. I think if you read my post I did imply that some matters may have to wait for the regulator. My point is why not say so? It's reasonable to expect that a) the regulator may have something to say and conditions to impose but also b) as customers we should be informed of that fact rather than just be told to "wait and see". Also I didn't expect front line customer services people (who have been excellent) to be part of the decision, but someone from the operational management who could have flagged up some of the issues customers would want answers to. Again I would see this as reasonable.

Re: sale to Sky

I've got to agree. I'm doubtful the contracts would change as long as everything's in writing I don't think they can be nullified by change of operator. At least for the rest of the duration of the contract.

Re: sale to Sky

I also have broadband, pay as you go mobile and home phone with discount for mobile top ups. I have been on a rolling contract for over 12 mths, since my 12 mth contract expired in Feb 12. It was only the sky issue which prompted me to check on my contract - I thought i was still on a 12 mth contract. Today o2 offered me a 12 mth broadband contract at half price, but until the future is clear I think I will stay rolling.

Of course you can wait and see - or you can read the writing on the wall.
Sad that the excellent O2 broadband will be no more, gobbled up by Sky.

Re: sale to Sky

both Bigal and stuart1983 are correct - Murdoch or rather his company own 39% of BSkyB 40% would mean he would have to offer a 100% shareholder offer. Which is what happened and they withdrew the offer after objections from the small shareholders.

Re: sale to Sky

I have been very happy being an O2 customer. I will however be moving to another broadband provider now, as I do not want to have any part of anything that has anything to do with Rupert Murdoch and his cronies, no matter how large or small his shareholding is. If I have to, I will do without a fixed broadband connection altogether.

Whether you like a shareholder or not can affect many people, but I wonder how many bother to check who the shareholders are on all the firms they deal with?

 

Do you buy car insurance, water, gas, electricity, clothes, furniture, by the price or by who is on the board?

 

I doubt there would be any companes left for them to use if they did.
