I had heard that OFCOM were going to stop the 0870 numbers from being Premium Rate instead making them proper National rate, ie the same as a geographic number. I wonder if that's why Sky have moved to (what will be) the more profitable 0844 range.

Can't let joe public away with anything unless it was a rip off, in Sly's favour, that would seem to be Sly's attitude. They are never anything other than shysters at the best of times. What really annoys me is that they will not answer the calls until they have you sitting waiting till the money stacks up for them.

I am very happy that I gave them the boot last week.

Very best regards Wez
