      Is that the circus in town???

      It's actually just funny, I'd love to just laugh in this guys face and watch him get flustered...

      If you're on Sky BB then what's the issue? You came, asked for help, ignored it, more than likely then realised you were wrong and followed it and now are getting what you should be

      Well done, now go in your dark room and play COD

      Sky definitely does offer broadband without TV and phone.

      The reason I know this is because I used my computer tonight, to apply for Sky broadband for my mother in law. They have calls and line rental with BT, they don't have Sky TV.

      The cost for Sky broadband Unlimited for them is 15 per month.

      Oh, don't send him away. He's hilarious, really brightens my day when he shows up. I love mouthy kids who think they know better than EVERYONE.

      I'm betting he hasn't even got his own BB, its likely his mum and dad who pay for it.

      Re: Doe's Sky Offfer Broadband Without TV & Phone

      Today was cancellation day Hooray! Except my mum was told by a sky op she could not have Internet without the phone is this correct ? I know the phone has to be connected but not sold the whole package of it being able to receive incoming/outgoing calls so was the op correct

      Price of phone and Internet around 21GBP she specifically said she doesn't use the phone but he told her she needs it at 11/month average.

      she now stupidly accepted a 6month contract over phone for same deal as before but cheaper for 6months Tv, Phone & Internet 30 Avg is this binding over the phone or will they send something out for her to sign..

      As long as your mum had line rental through BT then she didn't need a phone package and yes it's binding over the phone.

      Absolutely untrue.

      I have Sky broadband Unlimited, I also have a Sky TV subscription (which I have had for a number of years). My line rental and calls are with BT. I pay 12.50 per month for my Sky broadband.

      The reason I wanted to keep my phone calls and line rental with BT is because. If your broadband goes down and you have line rental and calls with Sky, you lose them all. Whereas if you have line rental with BT and Sky broadband goes down, I can still use the phone in most cases.

      Re: Doe's Sky Offfer Broadband Without TV & Phone

      Hope its untrue as I have just done it today.

      I did ask a few times to make sure and recorded the call.

      I have ordered unlimited broadband LLU no phone and no TV at a cost of 15 a month.

      My line rental is with BT and calls CPS to primus.
      If I prefix the dial with 1280 my calls go through BT as if I was a BT calls customer.

      You can't record the call without the permission of the agent, if you didn't get their permission it's inadmissible as proof of anything being said

      I can do a transscript and that is allowed.

      Also if a court asks to hear the recording that is also allowed.

      It is not illegal to record phone calls you are a party to so long as it is not done remotely and not passed to a third party.

      Not 100% sure of this but Sky may have recorded it and I may be able to do a Data Protection request to get the recording.

      Re: Doe's Sky Offfer Broadband Without TV & Phone

      If the agent hasn't given their permission it is NOT allowed, why do you think companies say 'your call may be recorded' before going through to someone - they have to do this as part of DPA and this also works the other way
