      Keep an eye on the saynoto0870 site as they sometimes have non 0870 numbers that can be used instead.

      I have never used an 0870 number to contact Sky, I have either used an 01506 one or a free 0800 one.

      If you're annoyed enough to sign a petition but not enough to leave Sky out of protest, it can't be that big of a deal?

      I suggest leaving any company you dislike, don't buy their products etc.

      The truth is most people would say "Well Sky are the cheapest", and they are - perhaps why they charge?

      If you want huge companies to notice, take your money ... vote with your feet.


      This petition might aswell be "petition companies to stop making profits and have everything be free", they have a right to charge for a service, end of. I'm fed up of paying for everything, I really wish it could all be free - but, can't happen.

      ----

      Live chat would be good or one of the "callback" schemes like Amazon, but its not that important to me - I'd quite honestly rather pay 10 a month and not be subsidizing phone calls from people whose router won't plug into their television.

      Also, how many more idiotic calls would Sky receive if they were free? The cost does act as a way of keeping the bad calls out.

      thats all well if sky would let you leave!! alot of customers being told they cant. Its all totally wrong, and when my 12 months is up ill be swopping!!

      like the thought simplerules, 'if its that bad leave...?' quote

      thats all well if sky would let you leave!! alot of customers being told they cant. Its all totally wrong, and when my 12 months is up ill be swopping!! Sky the worst isp ive been with for support, and regardless of customer knowledge level, we should all be given fair support with probs.

      Perhaps if sky gave better info with router, people would be able to fix simple problems without ringing any number. Find it unbelivable that you ring up for support and some person is reading info off a card/prompt screen, and cannot or wont deviate. and who knows nothing about equipment or routers! very poor if you ask me. and as for ringing up if its free, asking about plugging routers into TV sets, well i havent seen any posting like that on this web page, only desperate people who are sick of poor service

      id say nothing is for free, no, but good service should be standard. you get what you pay for, and theres other isp's doing it alot better for little more per month!

      There is already a website SAYNOTO0870.COM - Non-Geographical Alternative Telephone Numbers which has already petitioned the government and also provides many alternative numbers to 0870
