They tried to do this to me a few weeks ago because i wanted sky in , well sky are coming to fit mines free of charge were as BT were wantin 160 quid to do it THERE ROBBIN SODS

If you tie yourself in to a long contract with BT and make at least 3 calls a month then this deal could work:

If you have Sky then they may pay (give you credit off your Sky bill) to cover BT installation fees

BT said they wouldn't charge me for a connection charge of £124.99. Low and behold, 8 months down the line, about 50 calls and a significant number of grey hairs I have finally managed to get the money back.

Be aware and proceed with great caution!

go to sky and ask them to install the line

I think sky used to pay it if you hook up with them for 12 months. Pretty good if you wanted sky tv, not so good if you don't:roll:

after a long stern conversation to bt i have managed to get them down to £29.36 and £4.50 process charge which im quite happy with as they were going to charge over £100. I just told them i wanted to cancel me contract. I have had to start a new 18 month contract though!
