Sky Fibre broadband on offer for £25/m

Sky and its three broadband services while they usually have an offer running tend to not follow the same basement level pricing of its main competitors, but the latest offers which should run until 5th July bring them much closer to the cheapest services. As is usual the prices are only available to new customers, but for existing customers who are happy to stay and are out of contract, best advice is to see what they maybe able to offer.

As with a lot of the offers we list you will need to follow the link we give to see the same offers.

  • Sky Unlimited ADSL2+ £22/m for 18 months, with £19.95 setup fee and £50 reward. Average download speed 11 Mbps. Standard price £30/m
  • Sky Fibre Unlimited £25/m for 18 months, with £59.95 setup fee and £50 reward. Average download speed 36 Mbps. Standard price £38.99/m, FTTC/VDSL2 service using underlying 40/10 service.
  • Sky Fibre Max Unlimited £30/m for 18 months, with £59.95 setup and £50 reward. Average download speed 63 Mbps. 55 Mbps sync speed guarantee. Standard price £43.99/m, FTTC/VDSL2 service using underlying 80/20 service.

The £50 reward is in the form of a PrePaid Mastercard and must be claimed once the service is live, we would have preferred a lower fibre setup rather than the hassle of claiming a reward.

It should be pointed out that the average download speeds on the two VDSL2 services have changed, from 34 Mbps to 36 Mbps and 57 Mbps to 63 Mbps. This is not a result of some technical upgrades that we know about, but more likely are a reassesment after seeing what all the other providers are using post ASA average speed changes on 23rd May - the average on the Fibre Max service may have genuinely changed though if a few of the 100 or so slower lines that form the testing sample made use of the speed guarantee and got moved to a 55/10 service, which is a secret menu product. In short we are not expecting our average speeds for Sky to jump at all, and for individuals there will be not change.

It is not clear whether 'Sky Fibre Max' and 'Sky Fibre Max unlimited' are two different products or not...

@comnut what 25GB limit? Have you misread £25/month for 25GB/month?

No idea what you are talking about.

Sky Fibre Max is unlimited it is in standard size font in the table comparing the three current products.

There used to be an old usage allowance service called Sky Fibre 25GB that was based on the 40/10 service and priced slightly below the unlimited service, but this is no longer promoted.

Until Sky stop enforcing the use of their router/modem on their fibre product I will not go near it.
