LocalFound 8th Jul 2017
I just cancelled my sky tv, broadband and phone but was given a retention deal of 18.00 only for broadband and anytime calls and was told I don't have to pay for line rental for the whole 12 months.I think it's a good deal and cheapest without cashback for that price and I'm happy with sky myself.It doesn't have the sky tv but for broadband and phone that's a very good price and I hope it helps anyone who's contracts are up.

I've not voted either way as these will be hit and miss. You did get a better deal than I was offered though - 50% off tv and only 25% off fibre and line. my contract is up in September so will hold put for a better offer.

Yes it's a hit and miss but it's a good deal considering line rental is 18.99 a month and it's good for people who want a cheap deal and he only offered as I said I had a better deal elsewhere etc.
I cancelled my phone and broadband last week leaving me out of contract (my trick was to call their bluff as their retention offers were ridiculous) I called up today to stop the cancellation (didn't want to lose my number) pretended I had found another provider and needed an active line takeover. Customer service advisor didn't hesitate and knocked £10 pound off line rental if I stayed. I said yes and that was probably the quickest sky deal I have ever done by phone so free broadband and only paying £8.99 line rental. Keep haggling right to the end guys

Yes I called them as I wanted to keep my number and they offered me this deal which isn't bad for me and it's the cheapest without going and waiting for cashback.
Same deal paying £15 month. It was through online chat and retentions.

I think it's a very good price 15 or 18 but I guess not everyone thinks it is!
Got 50% off last year off everything on tv and free broadband £12 line with free weekends and evenings still got it this year when they asked about renewal. You have to make them keep calling you back while they think you are deciding 3 times normally does it lol.
You guys getting the £15-£18 deals, is this for fibre unlimited or just standard BB?

In the options tell them I'm leaving sky and then they put you through to the cancellations etc and just ask them you want this deal.
So I should ask for the cancellations team then? Because I just rang and asked for the win back team and they said no such offer exists on the line rental

They won't tell you the offer is there until it's the last straw...they offered me 26.99 first a month and wanted to give me a month free and i said i need to think about it and I will call you back but then the guy said what if I offer you 18 with the offers I mentioned and I had to say yes as it's a good deal for me without waiting for cashback sites to pay.

Hello this is my first post on this website. I just finished 12 months broadband only contract of £28.99 per month with Sky (every phone company raised their line rental cost in April). Thanks to op's deal, tips and comments on this thread, I called the 08 number, and said Im not happy about the increase, they offered to bring it down to £23.99, and I said no thats still too much as there are better deals out there under £20, and she said alright since you're such a long standing customer we can bring it down to £18.99 per month (original cost before line increase and other so called incidentals). So like Op said, I asked and "pushed" for a better deal in a friendly banter. £18.99 might not be fantastic to some people, but Im happy with it without resorting to cashback sites and the like. Its for 12 months. Hope this also helps other posters. So thanks to all contributors, this website is awesome!!

Well said and exactly you can't even get this deal yet people voted it cold they would rather pay 60 to 100.
Op this is a good deal, I've been haggling over the past few days with them and the best I can get in free BB and just pay the line rental, I wanted a deal on my anytime calls but they won't give me one they said £8 or nothing and go onto pay as you go calls, so I'm going with nothing in two weeks when my deal term finishes, maybe they'll offer me a deal then ;).
I'm certainly not getting offerd this deal. I am only getting £7.50 deducted from broadband which is still far more expensive than other providers. Is anyone actually getting this deal? I have phoned and been on online chat if you are wondering

Have you cancelled your tv or are you in a contract? You have to give a minimum of 31 days notice, I gave 2 months notice to cancel tv and the very next day I went to my sky account, went to the help pages, clicked on cancel sky, cancel bb and there was an offer for free bb and just pay line rental at £18.99
Try cancelling the package because that's when they know you are serious. I've checked my account and I'm paying less than a tenner for broadband and line rental so don't be afraid to cancel and call back within a week to retain your number.
after days eventually managed to get free line rental although have to pay for calls and broadband. Happy with this along with my 50% off sky tv package for everything. Thanks for the heads up because I would not have known otherwise. Perseverence works with Sky
Broadband, line rental and xl call package £18 didn't even know we were out of our contract . So glad we checked .Thanks for posting
