      Sky Talk + BT Contract

      I intend to get Unlimited BB + the Sky talk package (minus the line rental).
      I want to know if this is possible considering I'm tied to a contract with BT for their basic package (around 13 a month + Free weekend calls)

      Will I be able to get Sky Talk to 'ride' the BT line without actually having to cancel anything with BT?

      Re: Sky Talk + BT Contract

      If by the basic package you mean the contract includes calls, you may have a problem. It is not possible to have 2 call providers on the same line. BT will expect you either to honour the contract or pay leaving charge, which may amount to more than you would save with the Sky broadband discount. It may be easier for you to wait out the calls part of BT contract then transfer to Sky. You can still get the broadband right away but it will cost you 5 more.

      I phoned up BT, I am on contract but just the basic one. Turns out I can cancel and it'll only cost me 30 one off fee!
