      Post Office Landline Service

      Hi There,

      I am currently on BT Option 1 and also have Base Sky Broadband.

      I want to change over to the Post Office Landline Phone package where by you keep the same number and wall sockets etc but just pay line rental to the Post Office instead of BT....

      I spoke to Sky and they said that it needs to be a BT line.

      I spoke to Post Office and they said it will be fine as the line is Rented from BT by the Post Office and as a result wont affect my service on Sky Broadband.

      Can anyone clear this up for me... Will I loose the Sky Broadband if I go to Post Office Landline....?

      Thanks for any replies..... Apologies if this thread is elsewhere.. I tried to search...

      Thanks...

      Re: Post Office Landline Service

      most companies offering phone services including sky up till now only offer cheaper calls, not line rental (sky offering this service now i believe) which means you pay sky for calls but get a seperate bill from BT for line rental and any calls not covered by call package

      the post office phone system is still BT line orientated but to prevent two bills one for post office calls and one for BT line rental they collect your line rental along with calls, but they only rent the line from BT and they have to pay your line rental for you to Bt they act as a middle man to give you one bill

      all repairs are still handled by BT openreach

      so sky broadband will not be affected

      companies like bulldog offered non BT lines with which sky bb could not operate
