      Speculation?

      It hasn't been announced yet.
      All that is known is it will be cheaper than BT.

      BT's is 15.40 just now.

      Well it is on the Sky web site Sky Talk – Freetime and Tariff Features | Sky Products

      right at the bottom in barely readable text size it states:

      *Sky's line rental price will increase on 1 December 2013, but will remain cheaper than BT's current standard monthly price (15.45 a month).

      If you go into your account and look at the Phone package you have the following will appear:

      Sky’s line rental price will increase to 15.40 a month on 1 December 2013, but will remain cheaper than BT’s current
      standard monthly price (15.45 a month).

      So there it is, an increase to 15.40 a month!!!!
      And an increase of 6.21% !!!! More than twice the rate of inflation.

      If you haven't paid LR in advance and have the cash available, depending on your circumstances, it may be a good idea to pay up front before December to avoid the increase. I expect twelve months advance line rental will also increase from this date.

      I was expecting that to happen on the last occasion we had a line rental increase, but the up-front charge stayed at 119.40.

      If you delve deep into the 12 month up front line rental, you will find that sky have added that the offer is valid up to 26 Sep 2013!!!!!
      I personally can see them increasing it perhaps to 130.20, which would keep the saving the same.
      I hope I am wrong!
