Re: Sky Broadband FAQ

Are they still doing that? I remember when sky digital first started, i switched over and they demanded a phone line to plug it in...

Problem was it was behind a BT Renown PABX... and while the digibox can be programmed to dial any prefix to get an outside line, it cannot (being a 2 wire only device) generate an earth loop recall signal as required by the renown for an exchange line. Not my problem. I complied with the letters of their Ts and Cs... and their kit was incapable of using the fully functional line it was plugged into.
