      can you not just dial 1280 before dialling an 0845/0870 number to avoid the SkyTalk charges for these numbers?

      No, Sky block the use of 1280, not surprisingly seeing what they charge for those numbers.

      Re: Update on Sky Broadband pricing changes

      Well this is news to me. I dont actually mind a 5 increase for 16 mb broadband but i do mind that newer customers are exempt from it. Our sky tv went up 3.... 2 months ago and we are not going to pay the 5 for max when i can move to O2 for 5 cheaper as i am on an o2 mobile anyway.

      Thing is on priciple we will not have the sky tv either, I am a big believer in priciples and its not any small amount of money that bothers me its the principle of it. So sky will lose my 23 sky tv and 10 for Sky max. I may even just go with a 20 package from virgin media or i may use the freeview channels as they are all we watch anyway on sky.

      Was fun before the greed set in especially at a time when the credit crunch has already started.

      I agree, and made a similar point in the earlier thread about this.
      The day my letter arrives I will ring up and cancel skysports and when asked why I will say to fund the increase in bb ( hardly ever watch it anyway, and what I do watch I could watch in the club and the 15 saved would more than pay for the beer)
      Then when DLM arrives I will review how it effects me and probably move to either O2 or BE.
      Then as you say whats the point of having Sky tv at all as most of the channels are on freeview anyway.
      One thing I would miss is the + functions, but I guess there are are freeviewPVR's which could be funded by the savings in subs to sky.

      Re: Update on Sky Broadband pricing changes

      guess I will have to pay the 5 for now cos I won't take Sky talk plus Sky are best option at my exchange right now..only other options are AOL, Bulldog, Talk Talk or Tiscali..but I think I fall in the not pay increase till Jan 2010 so by that time 21cn should be running here and maybe O2 will have come to the exchange as well. I even dropped the movie package to save money. Ok even at 15 it's still 10 less than what I use to pay at last isp and I'm getting more speed now but thats not the point

      A 100% increase is out of order as far as I am concerned, its the final nail in the coffin.
      As soon as Freeview is available in Kendal im off ... and i'll be joining adsl24 and waiting for there adsl2+ service due in my area end of 09 beginning 2010.
      Big hairy ones to Sky!!!!

      You are around 190 metres from your exchange (as the crow flies!).

      Re: Update on Sky Broadband pricing changes

      Have you thought of it the other way round?

      I just joined Sky Max & Talk about 2 months ago. To have a price increase within the first 12 months is, well to be honest, a downright insult!
      My reason for upgrading to Sky+ was based on the money I would save by leaving BT and BT Vision. So, to have a price increase on BB would be just like sticking 2 fingers up at me.

      This kind of thing is happening all over the place. BT Total BB, where I came from, offers new customers 50% off for the first 3 or 6 months!
      Like the advert says "New customers only!"
