The latest offer from Sky may be the first of the offers that will start to
erode the dominance of BT Consumer in terms of the number of FTTC customers.
This week has Sky offering six months free fibre based
broadband, in addition to its other free broadband offers on the slower ADSL2+
As with most other retailers, voice line rental is a requirement, Sky charge
£15.40 per month, which includes landline calls at the weekends.
- Fibre Unlimited, free for six months, then
the standard price of £20 per month on an 18 month contract. £30 fibre
activation fee applies and if a new telephone line is needed a further set-up
fee of £20 may apply. Offer only available to new customers taking Sky Fibre
and the telephone service. Service is an up to 38 Mbps download and up to 9.5
- Unlimited ADSL2+ broadband, free for the
first year (minimum term is 1 year) for Sky TV customers, new Sky TV customers
or those ordering just the broadband and phone service. A £100 M&S
voucher is extra incentive for those just ordering broadband, existing
Sky TV customers get a smaller £25 voucher.
The saving of £120 compared to the standard price is slightly tempered by
the introduction of a £30 fibre activation fee, though the price is still below
the wholesale cost. Most Sky fibre installations are self-install with the Sky
Hub and filters being posted to you.
