Sky has added a footnote warning to its broadband package listings, to forewarn customers that on 1st December 2014 they are planning to increase the cost of voice line rental. The price rise is capped, as we are told it will be lower in price than the standard BT Consumer line rental of £16.99 per month, but as yet no indication of how much cheaper.
In other news Sky has rejigged its broadband offers once again, the free unlimited ASDL2+ packages are now only available to those who sign up to a Sky Movies/Sports or Complete TV bundle. The six months of free fibre based broadband offer continues. The main broadband offer is 12 months ADSL2+ for £3.75 per month, returning to the standard £7.50 after the minimum term.
The big offer is in the TV/broadband and phone bundles, with a large £100 reward in the form of a Tesco gift card, M&S voucher or a pre-paid MasterCard. Alternatively people can choose an LG NB3540 sound bar and wireless bluetooth subwoofer that retails for around £200 to £229 to add 320W of sound to an existing TV.
The price of the 12 month bundles of broadband and NOW TV have quietly reduced in price, to £10/month for an unlimited ADSL2+ service and Entertainment or Movies pass. A combination pack with broadband and both sets of passes retails for £15/month for 12 months.
