What is Sky Talk?
Sky Talk is Sky’s own home phone service, and it is usually taken with Sky Broadband. There are two packages to choose from, and both offer inclusive calls, good rates to mobiles and free calls to Sky contact centres.
Sky Talk Weekends is the basic calls package that comes FREE when you take up Sky Line Rental, whilst Sky Talk Anytime UK is the more comprehensive option, with extra benefits such as unlimited landline calls for free. The comprehensive calls package is still very cheap, and when bundled with Sky Broadband it offers you an affordable choice for home web access combined with home phone.
