      Re: Sky Talk Line Rental

      Just been on the phone to Sky about the Sky Talk Line Rental. I was told the launch of this service is imminent, perhaps by the end of the month, and that the service would be advertised on TV and in the Sky subscribers mag.

      The Sky website makes it seem as if the line rental service has already started.

      Apart from a 50p/month saving (59p if you count having to make 2 calls on BT to get Caller Display and 1571 'almost free'), what advantages are there?

      Taking into account Sky would then be able to bar access to 1899/18185/18866 and you'd lose the option of using the 1280 prefix to hop back onto BT for individual calls - coupled with Sky's higher charges for international, 084/087 and mobile calls - I'd say it's not worth it for a 59p saving.

      Re: Sky Talk Line Rental

      Talking about the new Sky Line rental, is there any way to get a 2nd line installed direct from sky? cant see any information at the moment

      Seeing as I have a bulldog line at the moment, it would be good to have a 2nd line running with sky broadband on it, so if I cancel Bulldog I wont be with out any adsl service

      At the moment I pay about £35 a month for phone and 16mb internet off
      bulldog, but seeing as I get a 50% discount every month on sky it would make sense to move all services to them

      Three-way Calling

      Speak to two people at the same time.
      Would these 3 way calls be chargeable?

      Re: Sky Talk Line Rental

      How much is this sky talk line rental, and would it mean we would no longer require paying with BT?

      50p/month less than BT IIRC but you'll lose the ability to use the likes of 18185, 1899 and 18866 and to use the 1280 prefix to 'hop back onto BT' for calls for which they're cheaper (0845 and 0870 calls at certain times), so beware Sky's charges for calls to 0845, 0870 and mobile numbers and their charges for non-inclusive calls.
