I have been reading about Sky+ for a while now and was going to get it when I move into my new flat. Just rang BT and they want to charge a £74.99 connection charge as the property is a new build and has never had a BT connection before. Has anyone come across this before? It seems like a lot of money for not a lot of work. The flat is already wired with BT phone sockets - how can they justify this charge? Do't understand why anyone would connect to BT at this price considering the great deals offered by local cable companies. I did point this out to the sales assistant and asked her why the charge was so high - she just said that she didn't know and couldn't comment. I asked if they would consider my argument concerning the low cost of cable phonelines and she said they would not under any circunstances waive the charge. Anyone come across this before/ have any thoughts or advice?
