      Question LLU and line rental

      First post and hopefully you can clear something up for me.

      I understand from the availability checker that I can get the Max broadband package, which means that my line will be LLU'd (I'm currently on IPStream with F2S).

      So how much line rental will I pay for my phone calls?

      I've hunted high and low for this information here and on the sky.com website and it is not a topic that is covered?

      Sorry if this has already been answered

      Hi at the moment you already pay BT for your line rental, if you switch to Sky this will not change, you will still pay the 11.75 a month to BT.

      The only difference is the technology you will receive your broadband by, F2S supply BB by BT and Sky have their own kit, LLU, ah and you will save shedloads of money.

      Re: LLU and line rental

      I think that my understanding of LLU is flawed or I'm missing something

      I originally thought that the whole point of LLU was that the BT line got taken over by the supplier (Easynet/SKy) and that all call provision was then through the new supplier? I didn't think that the calls could still be provided by BT or whoever (I'm with TalkTalk for my calls).

      Having done a bit more reasearch I guess the question now is: is it fully unbundled LLU or just a line share i.e. BT retain the voice circuit?

      When I was tracking my order via the BT.com site it mentioned 'LLU Line Share' so I guess it is. There is some discussions on here though saying Sky are testing a new phone service where you pay your line rental direct to them instead of BT.

      How do you do this please? I've tried using the order tracker on the Bt website but it can only give such information if you are a BT broadband customer. Any other ISP and it tells you to contact them instead.

      Do you have a link for this please? Thanks.

      When you go on Sky LLU, the ADSL side of it is patched through Easynets Kit, you still need a phone line to get the ADSL into your house. With Sky you would need to retain your phone line with BT. Until Sky offer phone line rental @ 9.00 per month in the very near future.

      Thanks to all who replied.

      One last question for NR (!): will you still have the choice of who you pay the line rental to when SKy start to offer it or will lines become fully unbundled i.e. tied to Sky in their entirety?

      Hi

      You choose either 11.75 to BT or 9.00 to Sky - your call, but I know who I will be choosing.
