      Just seen this on another web page:-

      'For a one off fee of 75.00 (paid up front) Sky are offering -


      Free istallation of Sky box & mini dish.


      Six months subscription to 2 of their 6 entertainment mixes.


      The equipment is yours to keep after the 6 months.


      You can then opt to cancel Sky TV and watch the 200+ free channels.


      Cannot find this offer on their website. You will need to call 08703 335 402 quoting "6 MCP" (8.45 am - 8.45 pm) calls cost 8p per minute but when I called at about 11.00 am they were quite quick.'

      Not sure if this applies to Sky +,possibly as Sky is normally free dish and install,so you wouldn't be saving a lot..

      Just called them that deal is just for Sky NOT Sky +, so nothing to get excited about, unfortunately.

Taking this into consideration, it's probably fair to say that currently Sky's unbundled broadband is available to roughly the same number of the population as Virgin's cable BB.

      But it's not anywhere near as costly to roll out LLU than dig up every street in a town to lay cable. So Sky have the upperhand on flexibilty to offer it's LLU Broadband to almost anyone they please within reason.

      I think the thread title should be changed to:

      "Something big was on the cards"

      I'm sure whatever it was it will happen soon...just like how they dropped the Sky+ charge

      Maybe they just realised that the impending court battle with VirginMedia is going to cost them money?
