Iíve just had the letter from Sky informing me about the increases to the Sky Line rental and Sky Talk service, with the increased charge for the 1571 voicemail service.
I donít use my landline phone Ö Iíve got my mobile phone for thatÖ.so the only reason to have the Sky Talk service is because I need the land line to deliver my fibre broadband service!
Iíve just cancelled the 1571 voicemail service (thankfully Sky made that easy) and if I had the opportunity, Iíd be cancelling my Sky Talk service as well.
Iím happy with the Sky broadband service but itís hard to swallow the charge for the Sky Talk and land line rental that goes along with it.
I feel Sky may actually be shooting themselves in the foot with this sort of increase because for the first time since I got Sky, about 20 years ago, Iím actually considering dropping their TV and getting myself something like a FreeSat box Ö combined with everything thatís available via broadband now, Iíd most likely end up saving myself a lot of dosh.
Sky increasing their telephone service charges may actually end up saving me a lot of money, and losing Sky a lot more?
