Sky Phone Line Questions


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,

I'm currently looking around for a different internet provider, I can only have 'fibre' with Sky as they currently don't offer 'broadband' at my exchange.

I have two queries which I can't seem to find answers to:

1.) Do sky have a Caller ID feature to see who is calling before I answer - if so, what is the monthly cost?
2.) Really stupid question but can I use a normal telephone with Sky or do they have some sort of phone hub that I have to use?

I appreciate these questions aren't broadband related but seeing as you can only have internet from Sky by taking their phone line rental it sort of is related.

1) Caller-id is free
2) Normal telephone smile

You're on one of the smaller exchanges previously limited to 8 meg IPstream Connect? I think Sky will do well on these exchanges since they can finally offer more attractive prices, especially for lower usage users looking at Sky's 25 GB FTTC package for only £10 per month.

Thank you for your reply.

Now just weighing up my options whether to attempt to negotiate a deal with BT or Sky now.

Yeah, I'm connected to a 20 CN exchange with only up to 8 Meg available. Now that my cab has been upgraded to 'fibre' last week, I seem to be able to 'unlock' some of the better deals previously unavailable to me.

Yes it's a good development since these exchanges when upgraded to fibre are released from the "shackles" of Market A pricing.
