Sky has taken free international calls out of Sky Talk Anytime for a new international home phone package at twice the cost.
The new Sky Talk Anytime International pack costs £10/month plus line rental, and includes international calls to 50 destinations, as well as anytime calls to UK landlines.
That’s 28 more than the old deal, and also includes calls to mobiles in Canada, Hong Kong and the USA.
What do Recombu visitors say about Sky?Sky Talk Anytime UK still costs £5/month plus line rental, and also includes 0845 numbers, but the change won’t affect existing Talk Anytime customers.
Sky said: ““Both our new Sky Talk packages now have inclusive calls to 0845 numbers. New customers can also benefit from our Sky Talk Anytime International package, which has inclusive calls to landlines in a total of 50 destinations – more than double the allowance included in the previous package.
“Existing Sky Talk customers will not be affected, unless they chose to move to one of these new packages.”
The international destinations are: Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Canary Islands, China, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Madeira, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Singapore, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey and USA.
As with all inclusive calls packages, there’s a time limit of 60 minutes for each call, and
UK geographic calls must be to 01, 02, 03, 0870 and 0845, not including the Channel Islands, indirect access and dial-up internet numbers, and 070 numbers.
Sky’s line rental is currently £14.50/month, or £119.40/year (equivalent to £9.95/month), and it won’t be going up on September 1 when some other Sky prices rises come into effect.
