    Hi all.

    I'm looking to switch from current provider - VM's TV, Broadband and Home Phone - to Sky's TV and Broadband only package. (Saves ~€50 per month)

    After the 12 months expire and Sky hike up the monthly fee, can you simply switch back to VM to avail of whatever plan they have at that time?

    Do VM then treat you as a new customer again?

    I also have VM mobile SIM rolling 30 day contract - it doesn't look like I can save on the particular bill. Will this mean that VM are less likely to treat me as a new customer in 12months?

    Cheers.

    FWIW VM will often give you the New Customer rate if you ring and say you’re leaving... Might save you some messing...

    That's good to know actually. I suppose I just need to be willing to actually leave rather than just threaten to do so.
