i would love to know how u got this discount as if every one got it they would be bancrupt /i did not get this when i sign up to sky fibre/and i did ask they said the person should be sacked to have set this up for u
In reply to a post
I have line rental for £1. They offset this when I upgraded to Sky fibre to offset the increase in price. I was 4 months into my 12 month contract.
I got this when I went through to cancellations as I said I was going to buy out of my standard Sky BB and switch to BT infinity. I would have done to be fair. This is valid for 12 months. I will ring back a few months after this expires and no doubt get another offer though at this stage (always have).
I also got my TV reduced to 50% discount (for 6 months) for having broadband slowdowns for 2 months (at the start of the year) due to my exchange having widely documented backhaul issues. This was via the executive team as I wrote a long documented complaint.
I've had sky for almost 10 years and pretty much always had a discount of some kind.
I moved my line rental across to Sky a few years ago as they offered me free line rental for 12 months and half price BB if I moved it over.
The way it works is quite strange though. Each person in cancellations has x amount of deals. So you may get through to somebody who had 10 offers available. They may have already given all of these away and therefore cannot offer you anything.
Ring back, get through to someone else. They may have just arrived and have a full 10 offers available to tempt you with. Don't succeed at first, hang up and ring back until you get somewhere.
Right now I have sky fibre pro 80/20, line rental, all TV (no movies or sport though) and I pay £44. This rises to £54 in January and £65ish in April 2012. I'll get another offer though I'm sure. The TV discount was only applied due to my issues with the service for 2months. BUT the line rental offers are across the board from what I gather.
