ISP Sky Broadband UK Hikes the Price of Phone Line Rental

Thursday, Sep 26th, 2013 (9:21 am) - Score 2,678

Customers who take their phone service from Sky Broadband (BSkyB) will be displeased, if perhaps not surprised (every other major ISP has already announced a rise), to learn that the price of Sky Line Rental will increase from £14.50 a month now to £15.40 from 1st December 2013.

The change was noticed via way of a subtle bit of small print that has recently appeared on Sky’s related product pages, which simply states: “Sky’s line rental price will increase on 1 December 2013, but will remain cheaper than BT’s current standard monthly price (£15.45 a month).” Is it really worth boasting about a 5p difference?

Interestingly Sky’s Upfront Line Rental, which cuts the price to the equivalent of £9.95 per month if you pay for 12 months in advance (total £119.40), remains unchanged.
