    08442 numbers have replaced the 0870 numbers.

    INSTALL = 08442 414414
    CUSTOMER SERVICES = 08442 414141
    SKY TALK = 08442 411999
    SKY BROADBAND = 08442 410515
    TECHNICAL = 08442 411411
    CUSTOMER CARE = 08442 411527

    Cals cost up to 5p per minute.

    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

    this is the website you want SAYNOTO0870.COM - Non-Geographical Alternative Telephone Numbers


    it lists all the alternative number for 0870 and 0845 etc


    so it will have either a 0800 or 01 02 03 number instead of those 10p per minute 0870 numbers.

    either search the companys name or input the 0845/0870 number.


    if i have helped hit thanks

    Sky is master in changing their phone number so they can reduce the call volume of customer services which is very silly i think. I have been using this number for some time now and works for me so you can try them too. its 01506243071
