      Re: Update on Sky Broadband pricing changes

      I have just logged onto the O2 website and the prices and facilities look very promising and it is available in my area (Bath). Sky is very silly and greedy. There is now a recession and people will economise. As a Sky Broadband user since Nov 2006, I object to being discriminated against. Sky are not going to attract many new customers at the present time when money is so tight. Because they have been very successful so far, that doesn't mean that they can literally walk on water! There are new "kids on the block" e.g. O2, Freesat etc. What I don't like is the way Sky treat their existing customers.....

      I take it you didn't get anywhere but thanks anyway.

      Those of us who have been on Sky BB for over 6 months, and in a fair few cases, since Sky BB was first launched, are not exempt until 2010, like any new customer is, who has signed up within the last 6 months.
      As I have said before this is amazingly poor decision by Sky, the playing field should be the same for everybody.

      I certainly don't want the Sky Talk option, as others don't, and if I received a credit until 2010, I would be quite happy to stay where I am.
      I would stay as well as this issue apart, I am more than happy with the services (tv and broadband) that I am receiving from Sky but boy have they shot themselves in the foot with this one.

      O2 will still be dearer for the the 8mg service as I read it on there web site.Being 12 50 for that service at momment . Sky will be 10.00 when it goes up. I am not happy with the price rise but I am more unhappey with all the repeats on the tv serice where they keep moving the same programmes from channel to channel. Even the so called new channels are showing mostly old programmes,

      I wouldn't say that we haven't got anywhere. Never say die and all that, but I do know our concerns will, or have already been forwarded to the people who make the decisions.

      The problem with Sky, there is not just one person who can make any type of decision. However when we spoke today, our concerns were noted and as above, will be forwarded to the relevant team.

      So I wouldn't give up yet. It maybe that we end up getting nowhere, or you never know we may all be pleasantly surprised.

      Hey Ged, did you happen to see a large pink pig float past outside the window?

      No? Well when you do, that'll be just as sky call you to tell you that they have changed their minds!!

      Re: Update on Sky Broadband pricing changes

      I think it was pretty obvious when sky announced that the max service was a truly "unlimited" service that a price increase would follow.

      I have the full sky package plus sports, so I will be cancelling the sports package to compensate for the increase.

      At the moment O2 only gives upto 8 mb at my exchange, but they will be having LLU there one day and it will be at uptp 20 mb. I live almost next to the exchange.

      Well at least you know where to look for advice on wireless
      Can you use the sky router for a comparison ?

      For me, it's not about the price, because I can easily afford 5 a month - it's about the way that Sky have chosen to do this. I have been a loyal customer of Sky almost from the start of their satellite service, which is about 20 years I think, but I see this as nothing short of blackmail. I'm so disgusted, that I'm seriously considering removing the Sports and Movies packages which I rarely watch purely out of spite, as well as switching to Be for my broadband. As far as I'm concerned, you don't reward loyal customers with a blackmail letter
