    Does anyone know how much sky charge for a new or additional line to be installed?

    1. Mark Jackson says:

      In the past it’s been £60, then it was £39 and you might be able to get it for £20 at the moment but their website isn’t 100% clear.

    2. un4h731x0rp3r0m says:

      Thanks Mark, you are right the site is not that clear. If it is any of the prices you mention then that is a bargain i will be looking more into.

      When i go through and run a online check (at least for the property i have plans to get a 2nd line for) it allows you to select “additional” line rather than the current but does not seem to factor it into the price in the order basket… Wondering if it tells you at the very last checkout stage online do not really want to order and have an unexpected expense. I suspect i will have to phone them to be certain.

    3. Web Dude says:

      Can you not try another address (a friend’s perhaps, with permission) – where there is no line, just to get the detail you need?

      After all, if they have bumped it up to say 99.99 it could come as an unpleasant shock!

      You may find the discounts disappear if you speak to staff – some sites have “Online only” when they have offers like this.

      Good luck with getting your second connection.

    4. un4h731x0rp3r0m says:

      I dunno of anyone who does not have a landline, feeding it my address and family members addresses also results in it doing the same as i outlined.

      I also would not be shocked if a new line install for a property that does not have a phone line costs a different amount to wanting a second line install (go through the ordering process as far as you can without obviously buying and you will see why i suspect that).

    5. Simon says:

      Yes it’s £20 when you run an order through ir’s £20 install and then £9.95 to deliver

    6. Clifford says:

      £20 from what i can see is to re-connect a disconnected line (IE you wouldn’t need a new line installed). Though as MarkJ mentions it is hard to tell as things are not 100% clear.

      I think you are best off phoning them un4h731x0rp3r0m.

      Thanks to everyone for the responses

    Vodafone are still cheaper. Not that I would go with either, I’m happy on my gaming service from idnet.
    I just signed an 80 year old family member up to Vodafone for £22 per month on the 40meg service as she does alot of Skype calls to the US. Plus in a few months she gets a £50 amazon voucher. That deal was from uswitch I think.

      “I’m happy on my gaming service from idnet.”

      I’m afraid you’re paying for snake oil. I tried out IDNet’s gaming package and it made a difference of diddly squat (ie same pings and throughput at peak times) versus my old BT 80/20 FTTC line. Went back to BT for essentially the same service and paying less in the process. Still, at least you get better support on IDNet.

    Just signed up to AAISP – oh well maybe in 6 months when the contract is up i will just sign up to them again 😉
