      I expect they have to claw back all the 5 discounts on broadband some way

      Do you have a link to the official announcement?

      I wonder if this applies to Unlimited as well?

      Or, perhaps, a bit of forward-planning to boost revenue?

      Thinking about it, as unemployment rises, so do daytime calls to their call centres. Time to cash in on that even if the calls are to downsize a subscription package?

      All I can say is good job I stayed with BT on option3 (I can't belive I just said that!)

      Only got charged for 1 number last month and that was an 0844 number.

      Although I can see Sky now moving to 0844 just to tick us BT customers off.

      But if you are on Sky Talk, calls to them are included now...

      Sky are now on 0844, surely it's only a matter of time before they disconnect the old 087x numbers?
