    12 month up front, save £50.00 08442 410311 (£9.95 per month equivalent). You can only get it by phoning Sky.

  • Are evening and weekend UK landline calls included for the £14.50/mth?

    Yes.

    Like the post above I would strongly recommend that people pay it up front if they can as you save just under 1/3 of the cost.

    Not any more, only weekend calls are included.

  • Yes, have to say I was struggling to see where they say you get evening calls included. Seems to be weekend calls included in the line rental then an option of £5/mth extra for anytime inclusive calls. So a price increase and services decrease, effectively.

    Yup thats it, I rarely use the land line for phone calls so it works out OK for me. It was hard work getting the upfront line rental recognised by their system last time, they took a couple of months to sort it out.

    It's astounding, time is fleeting, and madness takes its toll
    But listen closely, not for very much longer, and you will lose the evening call.

    I feel a lot of people are paying for phone lines when really they could do without the line. A lot of people have mobiles with inclusive minutes they could be using etc.

    I was fortunate enough to sign up for Skypes package approx. 3 years ago which means l pay just £3.39 in total per month for all landline calls Europe wide, voice mail etc. l have the dual phone which connects via the router so it's just like a normal phone.

    Also l make full use of saynoto0870 for those dreaded numbers.

    I feel some people may be stuck in their ways thinking they have to have a landline because that's how it always has been.

    A land line comes in handy if you want ADSL/FTTC Interweb.;)
