    Sky Price Increase - 1st September - then 1st January 50p more due to VAT returning to 17.5%

    Just got the Sky Mag this month and there's a letter printed with it
    Says prices for Sky will be increasing August/September

    1 pack will be £17.50 not £16.50 and so on, meaning 6 packs will be £22.50
    Then from 1st January when VAT returns to the previous 17.5% it's another 50p a month

    My 3 mixes now cost me £18.50, will be £20 soon
    Not much but all adds up i guess.....

    Sorry it posted before

    No silly i didn't make it clear, sorry, i am on non-sky BB i'm with 02 :giggle:

    Yeah the full package is going up to £48.50 from January - £2.00 per month I think

    all in preparation for when they try to royally rip xbox 360 owners off in a couple of months.

    i can only just afforrd it at 17.50 cant afford much elese anyone wanna swap my sky+ box for a freesat box

    Best thing that could happen to the UK pay TV market is for ofcom to force sky to allow wholesale access to its services. Much as it has done to BT in the telecoms market

    :roll: what a bunch of rip-off merchants sky are ...thank goodness for the magic box...super usb works a treat and no subs to sky!!!!:-D

    Did you get someone round to check? I was in a similar position with growing trees in a neighbours garden - but sorted it by buying another dish and fitting it above gutter height!

    Changing the subject..... need to pick your brains about internet connection problems. I use Bethere...... and for the past few months, keep getting drop outs. My modem indicates I'm connected, but the computer says no! I've tried 3 different modems - and they're sending another to me. I dont think it will make any difference. Whats the best way of checking the exchange is up to the job? (I need to have a permanent reliable connection! - they have reduced my line speed twice now - and no improvement. Its pretty intermittent - on and off when it feels like it.)

    I'll talk to you later Mr Guv off to kickboxing now, back 9ish. Your not losing synch, but losing connection correct?

    Ok no worries.

    Yeh, the lights are on and it shows I am connected. When this happens, I cant even access the modem - which kinda says the fault is the modem - but are they that unreliable?

    When I've had the problem - Be have been able to access remotely - but at other times haven't.

    Ive set it up, so I can access remotely. I checked today at about 8am from my phone. No connection. Still no connection when I came home. A reboot sorts it...... until the next time.
