plusNet + Sky


[link to this post]
 
Been with plusNet for 14 months, love the broadband but Sky have slightly better pricing on the line rental and their call packages are better (IMHO).

Does anybody if you can have Sky line rental with plusNet Fibre?

Cheers!

Probably, but your PlusNet broadband will cost an extra £2.50 per month if you do, so don't forget to factor that into your estimates.

no sky do not allow line rental on its own, when i was with them i looked at removing broadband and keeping the phone where it was (it was a second line), and they told me they dont do phone on its own you have to have their broadband even if its just the free ADSL package, also even if sky did allow this plusnet broadband would be incompatible with a sky "phone line" or visa versa

Sky do have legacy WLR customers and have moved some O2 and Be SMPF customers onto it.

Also on this page you can scroll right down to Sky Talk details drop-down and there is no mention of having to take any other Sky product.
Sky Talk: 12 month minimum term applies to new Sky Talk customers and to existing customers taking up Sky Line Rental. 12 month minimum subscriptions except 18 month minimum subscriptions for Sky Fibre Unlimited Sky Talk & Line Rental if you order. Sky Talk is only available to customers paying by Direct Debit/continuous credit card mandate. Calls only packages not available to BT line rental customers with BT Basics or if outgoing calls are barred. Sky Line Rental required (£15.40 per month). Connection charge from £39 may apply for customers without an active BT compatible line
That to me implies WLR.

Plusnet is compatible with WLR.

I suggest whoever you discussed it with was forgetting it doesn't have to be LLU phone.

What is true is that they will not (normally) take new customers on broadband unless they also take Sky LLU line rental. Not WLR.

I don't think so, see this page. Bog standard landline prices and
Make the most of your landline and keep in touch with your loved ones in the UK with Sky Talk Anytime UK.
£5 per month, plus Sky Line Rental at £15.40 a month
Re that presentation, I'm not sure it is anything to do with Sky.

Note that it has a price in dollars, the heading Jaht, the link at the bottom doesn't have a destination, nor does any early part of that link until you get to www.jaht.com and much good that does us tongue smile. All greek to me.

I think whatever they do, Sky may have made them drop the name SkyTalk.

Sky like to link their phone and broadband due to the cost advantages and upsell advantages for them.

In theory you can have Sky TV and Sky Phone but the broadband with another party, i.e. WLR + SMPF but ordering might be fun.

In reply to a post by MrSaffron:

And it seems you have no mouse, or just can't be bothered to click the link to the pdf I posted describing it. Not sure it it still exists as I originally said.

Re your reply to MrSaffron you seem to have ignored my post wondering if your linked document is anything to do with Sky Broadband in the UK. Other than the "word" SKyTalk" I see nothing, and googling Sky Talk brings up all sorts of other stuff.

What I find odd is the the jaht domain itself smile.
