Broadband provider Sky has opted to unbundle its telephony lines, giving the operator full control of its network.

The move will mark the end of its relationship with BT, from which it currently rents its infrastructure.

According to the group, the change will give its customers greater value for money and enable Sky to offer new features and technological developments in the future.

In a written letter to users, the operator stated that the change would give it "end-to-end control" of broadband services, which it did not have when renting from another internet provider.

Sky also reassured customers that all of its Talk and Broadband subscriptions would be transferred to the new network automatically without major disruption.

Account details of existing subscribers will not change as a result of the unbundling.

The provider revealed in March as part of its results for the third quarter that its broadband subscriptions had risen to 2.085 million in the three-month period.
