I am aware that you can get Sky/Sky+/Sky+HD without having to take the Phone line & paying 25£ upfront.

Will appreciate if you have a past experience with Sky broadband.

Call them and ask?

Sky broadband is ADSL which requires a BT network phoneline.

Thanks, but it is better to ask experienced people here that pay those s**kers for the call. :-D

Someone needs to pay Openreach around £8 per month for the cable from your home to the telephone exchange. They don't care whether you use it for telephone calls or ADSL, they just manage the wiring. So technically you don't actually need a telephone line as such, it's just the easiest way for them to make sure that you're getting the service from Openreach.

in a word no - sky BB comes down the phone line, only virgin and the cable companies dont use the phone line as the have thier own cables:thumbsup:

Sky TV is different a tech - satalite beamed to your house and received by a dish
