      New Line, Given Strange Number?

      Hi all, I've been helping out someone with ordering a new line from Sky (Broadband and Talk). The line is due to go live in 10 days.

      They are on the Cayton Bay exchange

      The number Sky have given them seems somewhat unusual. Numbers on this exchange are normally (always as far as I knew) 01723 58xxxx. The number they have been given is 01723 25xxxx.

      Do sky have their own number blocks for new lines? I've never heard of anyone in the 01723 area with a number that starts 25. Is there anything to worry about here?

      Thanks in advance.

      According to S Digit 1/2 List, SABC=1723 (Scarborough).

      numbers in the range 01723 259xxx are allocated to BSKYB LLU Assets Limited and 01723 58xxxx are allocated to BT.

      Other telecom providers are available (and have their own allocated number ranges).
