Sky's got a limit for off-peak calls
News has emerged that, from the start of June, Sky will join TalkTalk and BT by beginning its off-peak call period an hour later at 19:00 BST – a move described by some experts as "a real slap in the face" for many consumers.
In addition, all three of the providers have revealed plans to increase the price of daytime calls, meaning those who mistakenly pick up the phone at 18:00 BST will be hit even harder.
Defending the move, a spokesperson for Sky told the Daily Telegraph: "We have been transparent and contacted all our customers by email or letter. Our change merely follows where BT and TalkTalk have already gone."
As such major broadband providers have made the move, it is unlikely that many people will switch to other companies to avoid the changes. However, there will be plenty of people who could possibly rethink their use of home phone services all together to avoid paying the price.
