      Reduction in Line Rental

      Called Sky just now to see if they can add a deal onto my account for the broadband as well as cancelling my Sky Sports sub as the football season is drawing to a close.

      I was trying to haggle to see if I could get the Unlimited Pro package for 20 using the old ''BT & Plusnet are cheaper line''. They would/couldn't do it. I kept pushing and they eventually came back with either a 10 p/m for Fibre Unlimited for 3 months or 1/2 price line rental for 6 months. I opted for the latter as it works out less for longer.

      So in short for the next 6 months at least my package has gone from 97.25 to 68.75 which is a saving of 28.50p/m. Not bad for a 15 minute phone call.

      So for those of you that have had fibre unlimited for over a year it may be worth a call to see what deals they can offer you

      Re: Reduction in Line Rental

      Going off topic momentarily, were you offered a reduction on the cost of Sky Sports to keep it until football restarts?

      Good work Andrew. Was about to try the same myself. What number did you call and which menu choices to get through to someone with the power to do anything?

      i called 150. i just followed the options to remove part of your sky package (eg sky sports) and the 1 CS agent did it all (i do believe he consulted a manager though when I asked him)
