      Re: Sky price changes from 1 September 2012

      From looking at the Sky Talk Tariff Guide (effective from 01.09.2012), it would seem that the monthly charge for Line Rental will be increasing from £12.25 to £14.50 - but presumably only for new customers from that date, as the second link in my first post states (in answer to the question "Will my Sky Broadband and Sky Talk be going up as well?"

      "There are no changes to the monthly price of Sky Broadband, Sky Talk or Line Rental for existing customers at this stage. Please see the Sky Talk Tariff Guide for changes to some call rates."


      Note also:

      "From 1 September 2012, we will no longer be offering Sky Talk Freetime to new customers. If you're already a customer and you have Sky Talk Freetime you'll be able to keep this product.

      We're also changing the names of some of our Broadband and Talk packages from 1 September:

      • Sky Broadband Everyday Lite will become Sky Broadband Lite.
      • Sky Talk Unlimited will become Sky Talk Anytime.

      If you already have these products there will be no changes to what is included in these packages; only the name on your bill will change."

      Just had a web chat with Sky to enquire how much our package would be going up in September - Our package was frozen at £21.50 per month when they changed the packages last year. According to the Sky website, Our package is now £26.50 per month!! Thankfully, I've just been informed that we will only face the £1.50 increase!

      ....also with the withdrawal of Skytalk Freetime and the launch of Skytalk weekend - does this mean they are mirroring BT with their call packages? albeit without an 'evening' option for new customers! Not exactly enticing to new customers when BT offer the 3 options is it?

      Yes I believe so, it'll become a legacy package, along with the skytalk 24/7 package! (which I don't recall ever being available - free calls at anytime without a monthly sub!)

      One obvious thing to think about for an existing customer on "Freetime" who may be considering a short-term upgrade to "Unlimited" (say for a month or two) with the intention to downgrade again: after 1 September, I would expect the downgrade path from "Unlimited" to be back to "Weekends" (rather thn back to "Freetime").

      It will probably be like mobile tariffs - you can stay on a tariff even after it has gone off sale, but you can't go back to that tariff once you have changed to a different tariff.

      tbf - The football probably has nothing to do with it.

      They froze the prices last year so this is the first rise in 2 years. And it is not as much as I thought it would have been.

      £1.50 a month is neither here nor there in all reality.

      Petrol has gone up by more than that.

      At least with Sky we have a choice, we either pay it or leave.
