      Up-Front line rental

      There used to be an option to pay a reduced line rental by paying for 12 months in advance. Does this option still exist? How much is it currently?

      Re: Up-Front line rental

      I don't know if it's bad form to reply to my own questions, but I found the answer here: Sky Talk Weekends - phone line and talk packages from Sky

      Have rung the number quoted (option 2) and had it sorted.

      Upfront line rental offer: Available to new and existing customers taking Sky Broadband, Talk and line rental. Line rental is charged as an upfront cost of 119.40 for the entire 12 months. Equivalent to 9.95 per month - a saving of 54.60 over 12 months. Standard monthly price 14.50. After the 12 months has ended, you will automatically be moved on to the standard monthly price, unless you specify otherwise. Offer ends 29 June 2013. This offer is only available over the phone. Please call 08442 410311 to redeem.

      Lol.
      After seeing it on my calendar today, i was going to post a reminder that the offer ends june 29th.

      Oh & ask if you'll be able to renew an existing upfront payment after then.
      The info seems a little contradictory to me.

      And note that paying upfront line rental is taking advantage of an "offer". I'm not sure but I think this may exclude other more valuable "offers" from being offered to you whilst benefiting from the upfront line rental offer. I'll try and find out for sure on that point...

      I haven't (yet?) been reprimanded for "stacking" this offer with another. But who knows?
