      Re: Exciting new Rumour

      Well, we have now had our third confirmation.

      Well done to RickyC for guessing correctly.

      Rumour has it, Sky are going to be launching a new ISP, similar to Sky Broadband, by where, you do not need to be an existing Sky Customer to take up their Broadband Product.

      Cheers NR, that business degree i am studying for has come in handy!
      BTW i am sure sky would never charge the charges we pay, i would expect base to be a fiver mid to be tenner and max 15! Then they make a killing!
      Oh by the way if anyone is sky are reading this i am availble for hire for a small fee! lol

      It makes perfect business scense from Sky's point of view but I wonder what sort of products they will be offering and the range of prices, will they, for example, be the same as the current Base, Mid and Max ones.

      May I ask which other very big website has got this story? I haven't been able to find any sniff of it yet on the obvious ones!

      I don't think Sky offer line rental at the moment actually!

      See here Sky.com - Products and Services>More Sky Products>Sky Talk

      You just pay BT for your line rental, and your Sky Talk charges will be added to your Sky statement.
      Anyway this is interesting news.

      The other big website has not run the story yet, (no it's not Digital Spy) The problem is that there is not a lot too much report as there is very little information available.

      I spoke to someone on the other site the other day and they had heard the rumour, but nothing concrete.

      We just wanted to be a little more certain (hence the 3 confirmations) before we posted anything. The last rumour about Sky+, we made a statement that it as going to be "Imminent" and then that all got crushed by VM spitting their dummies out, although we always held out as the information was never withdrawn by the third party.

      There are conflicting rumours about what is being offered, and as such we will not say anymore than what we have published at the moment.

      Sky have been trialling 9 per month line rental as against 11.75 per month from BT. No timeframe for release for us to buy, but was planned for this year.
