I made the switch on the 4th May from Sky to TalkTalk. An engineer actually came over to handle the switchover. However, it seems Sky was not informed of the switch at all and their service is still active at my address and I am still being charged by them this month. This need to be solved.

As others have mentioned your sky billing account has has remained open, the line is with us with a new number, as the named account holder you will need to contact sky and cancel that account, unfortunately we cannot do it for you at this point.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

No, it is the new number from TalkTalk and different to the Sky one. According to my Sky account page their number is still active. That's why it is odd, how can a single line has 2 different numbers at the same time?

Thanks for your post
I can look into this but first, can you please update your community profile to include:
Telephone number or account number.
Please do not post this information on this thread. Once you've updated your profile please post in your topic to confirm it's updated.

The impression I get is that you did not request a switch from Sky to TalkTalk at the point of ordering, or not as you may have thought. This will explain why you have a new number and why Sky are continuing to bill you, as far as they are concerned it seems that you have not cancelled.
If you would like the support team here to look into this for you make sure that your personal details including TalkTalk landline number (the "new" one) and/or account number are complete on your community profile (click here) so that they can link your forum identity with your account and then wait for them to respond.

If you dial 17070 is the TalkTalk number read back to you ?
It is impossible to have two active services on the same phone line.
The last part of Fibre 65 is over the phone line, fibre terminates at the local street cabinet.
Future Fibre is over a real fibre cable and you would have had a new cable installed and a termination box on your wall as well as a router.

Hello, thanks very much for the respond.
Both services used the same BT socket. TalkTalk did ask my existing landline number before the switch, which I then provided. Interestingly, when I check both accounts I do see 2 different landline numbers active at the same time. This is odd. My TalkTalk product is Fibre 65, not sure how different it is to FutureFibre.

@kanasyy was your SKY service over the phone line ?
Is your new service from TT also over that line ?
If "yes" to both of the above, did TT port you landline number from SKY ?
It is impossible for two services to be active on the same phone line.
If you have had Future Fibre installed from TT that does not automatically cancel a service over the phone line from a previous ISP unless you have asked TT to port your number, even in that case, you should contact your previous ISP to ensure they will end their service.
