It may depend on who you moved to. If its not a provider who uses the BT Wholesale network, then the changeover will not be seamless, as your new provider may have their own equipment in the exchange. Sky is one such provider, and there are others.
A two week changeover would seem about right, if that is the case.
I assume you contacted your new provider first, and they informed BT Retail that they are going to take over the service, as that is the correct way to do it?
For Sky to provide broadband, the BT Broadband equipment has to be disconnected, and your line routed via Sky`s equipment in the exchange. This involves someone in the exchange re-jumpering the connection. I assume you still have dial tone from BT?
Presumably you contacted a Sky, and didn't contact BT yourself, ( the correct process ), in effect you left it to Sky to give your notice to BT of your intention to leave.
As you that you don't say anything about ( so presumably haven't received ) the 'sorry to see you leave' letter from BT, that indicates BT have not yet done anything to your line, in fact it's the process of being moved to Sky that 'disconnects' your BT service, so it's likely that this problem is nothing more than coincidence , basically your broadband has gone faulty in the period between you moving from BT to Sky, the potential problem is reporting the fault , as you will have a migration on file, and it's possible that by the time your BT fault is looked at, you may have already been migrated to Sky
Welcome and thanks for your post!
I'm sorry that your broadband has been disconnected early. This doesn't look right to me. I would have expected the broadband to remain connected until much closer to the date/time you were given for the transfer.

Thank you for sending in your details. I gave your mobile number a quick call, I'm sorry that I didn't get speaking to you.
I've had a look at the details of your account and both your telephone service and Broadband are still showing as being active with BT. I can see that your services are due to transfer to your new provider on the 24th.
There is an open fault for your Broadband service and our suppliers are currently investigating.
Is your Telephone service still working okay or has this also been affected?
