I'm in a rented house and have to leave in two months as the landlord has given notice. My housemate who had the phone and broadband bill in her name has just moved out taking my internet connection with her. I need to be able to access the internet at home for the next two months but am under the impression that I can't just pay for two months of line rental and would have to have a 12 month contract and then pay a cancellation fee. Do BT have any temporary packages either for the line or for line plus internet? Or are there any other options? I don't actually want the phone line, just the internet.
As Keith suggests, a mobile phone package with data, and which allows tethering, may be your best option.
BT does allow you to take the broadband contract with you when you move house. So if you will still need it after you move, then that's another option. After you move, you just carry on the broadband contract, but you may need a new 12 month phone contract to get the line to connect it to.
