      Blimey Scubbie - no offence was taken

      I am sort of with "puretoon" - Sky was charging too much dosh

      I suspect that this will be the case again VERY soon

      ....Mr M is a very slippery grasping son of a b**** who will not be happy untill he is declared "king of the world"

      more likely ALL media will declare him so - and of course that will make it so..............

      Edit - Dam - I will probrably get "banned" now

      Well we have some threads on this forum which aren't too pretty for them either.

      However the Murdochs are no longer on the Board of Directors.

      lol - Actually they have been fine for a friend of mine. Admittedly he doesn't use the Internet a great deal, so he has a low monthly cap. He also has an O2 mobile contract linked, so he gets a discount for that too.

      I have a question regarding their fiber services seeing that is is available in my area can one have this without the sky package or is this needed, unlike the dsl package where you can have broadband on its own?

      You do not need to have Sky TV to have Sky Broadband or Sky Fibre Broadband.

      You do need to take Sky Phone rental, the same as ADSL.

      You can get free setup as a tv customer too, but you have to pay £50 setup without tv for fibre.

      Interesting that you should say that the setup fee is only applicable if you do not have Sky TV.

      On my initial call to Sky I was only offered SFUP with the installation charge. I tried to get it waived, but the person wouldn't do it.

      It was only after talking with someone else I was able to get it waived.

      I didn't say "is" I said "can".
      It can be waived in the dept I work in ;-) if you have TV but not if you don't.
