Sky bundles broadband in offer and increases broadband speeds
Sky are offering 6 months free up-to 20Meg 'unlimited' broadband in a new promotion open to new and existing Sky customers who take the deal before 31st May. Sky Unlimited usually costs £15 on top of a Sky TV package, or £10 more when taken with the Sky Talk package. Customers have to move their BT line rental to Sky to take advantage of the offer (£11 a month) and either the Sky Talk Freedom (free) or Sky Talk Unlimited calls package (£5 a month). This offer is only available to new Sky customers or existing Sky customers who do not currently have Sky broadband.
Techradar are also reporting that Sky's broadband products are set to change from the 1st of June. All broadband products will be changed to offer up-to 20Meg broadband speeds (dependent on distance from the telephone exchange), even on the unbundled 'Sky Base' which offers free broadband to Sky TV customers, albeit with a low 2GB monthly usage limit. The Sky Unlimited service will also reduce in cost to just £7.50 a month from June 1st to those who take Sky TV and Sky Talk, a reduction of £2.50 a month. It's not clear if people who sign up to offers such as those above will also benefit from this reduced price.
"Sky is transforming the broadband marketplace again, by providing Britain's best value up to 20Mb truly unlimited broadband service and the UK's only free, up to 20Mb service.
With these new products, our customers have a very simple choice to make based on how much they use the internet, with peace of mind that they are getting a high quality, reliable service.
Unlike some other ISPs, Sky promises not to slow down the speed customers enjoy on its network at peak."Delia Bushell, (Director of Broadband & Talk) Sky
