      Sure do. You have to give them a call. Upfront line rental is available for all. Also half price bb is available to select customers if you agree to a new 12mth contract.

      It's shown mid right on this page. http://www.sky.com/shop/broadband-talk/talk-weekends/

      Sky Line Rental offer
      Save 50 when you pay for 12 months line rental upfront, which works out at just 9.95 per month.

      12*9.95 = just short of 120, 119.40 if my maths is right.

      The 12 month advanced rental seems a good deal. Anyone managed to get anything off Unlimited BB at the same time?

      Yes, as mentioned I got half price for 12 mths for agreeing a new 12mth contract. No upfront payment.

      Hi RDC.

      You mentioned:
      ... is available to select customers if you agree to a new 12mth contract.
      I can't see that anywhere at sky.com.
      Was it a special one for you in the mysky offers section?

      I'd happily agree to a new 12 month contract fo broadband.

      I don't want to be pedantic but you asked if anyone had managed to get a discount not are there any official offers on sky.com.

      Thanks for that. I was wondering in my case if it was worthwhile trying for cheaper BB when I pay for my rental in advance. You obviously managed that and I don't mind a 'one off' deal. I'll see how it goes.
