      New Main line install ** Refurb **

      Need some advice I'am doing up a 1930's house and looking to get a phone line installed for boardband / phone etc.

      I have phoned BT to asked about the new customer free line install and they advised I could get the line installed for free if I took the phone/ boarband out with them on an 18 months contract. So I told them were to go.


      What I'am trying to find out if I contact Sky and ask them I would like to go for SkyHD, boardband and phone would they arrange for the line to be installed

      Or would I still have to pay BT to instal the main phone line into house from poll

      Sky will arrange to have the line installed at much less cost than BT. You would have to sign up to a TV and Phone Rental contract.

      Thanks for that, so what would the cost be for Sky to install the phone line ?

      I can't locate the link now, but I am fairly sure someone said they charged about 30.

      That's great if correct, better then paying BT 125
