Moving house and transferring phone number with SKY

Hello,

I will be moving home soon and would like to take my landline phone number with me.

Currently, I am with Sky, and according to their policy the landline phone number cannot be transferred to a new home.

I am not happy with their service, as they not provide minimum download speeds (checked with Meteor and Speedcheck Pro), however, MySky is always above minimum download speeds...

Anyway, I am bounded by contract until May 24, so would be happy to carry my contract over. The only thing is, keeping the number we had for years (originally issued by BT and transfered to a current house).

Is there anyway around Sky policy, that we can transfer this number to a new house?

I would be grateful for and advise and help. Thanks

    As above, unless you're moving to a different exchange you can usually take the number with you.

    I have no idea what Meteor or Speedcheck Pro are but it sounds like you're using an App on a tablet or phone over WiFi? If so then MySky is checking the speed at the router, you will always have losses to any device, even a hardwired computer but more so over WiFi. Presuming there's no issues then you'd be getting the same speed from other suppliers excepting faster technologies (fibre to the property for instance).
