Sky has re-jigged its VDSL/FTTC fibre product pricing for new customers, with the broadband element of the entry level 25GB monthly usage allowance version available for free in the first year once you pay the £17.40 per month line rental. For those embracing the world of big downloads and video streaming the unlimited product may be a better option which is on offer for £10/m for 12 months plus the £17.40/m line rental.
Both products are based around the up to 38 Mbps download and up to 9.5 Mbps upload VDSL2 service and carry a 12 month contract. An activation fee of £35 may apply. Standard price for the 25GB service is £10/month and the unlimited service is £20/month plus the line rental at £17.40/month.
In Fibre to the Home news, Sky has started promoting its FTTH service in York, with the entry level service at £10/m plus £17.40/m line rental with a guaranteed 50 Mbps download speed - though the guarantee only applies to the router and has caveats to guard against the times when people get a slow down because the web site host is slow etc.
