Sky Broadband Unlimited Fibre Retention Deal - £17.40 (inc. Line Rental) for 12 months

26
I contacted Sky yesterday (via livechat) to find out when my broadband contract was due to expire. With 45 days left on my contract, they agreed to reduce the price of my line rental to £7.40 per mont…

Did work for us... Thank you so much. £17.40/m for a year, Great day!!!

Can you tell me what you said please. I phoned on Saturday and only got offered £10 fibre optic for the year instead of £20 as that's me out of contract. They told me they weren't offering the £7.40 line rental anymore and they offered me the line rental for a measly £14.99pm tying me into another contract. I told them to get stuffed. As it stands I never took my broadband for half price as I would be tied into phone contract also. I may try my luck again. They offered me 20% off my Sky Tv for 5 yrs but told them no as would want a better offer in order to re-contract. Anyone else had luck getting the £7.40 line rental over the last couple of days?
Just got same deal myself. Not as good as the free line rental last year.
Good deal...
I'm at the last month of BT fibre, and considering switch to SKY. I had ADSL before this BT Fibre and to my disappointment, I could hardly see any difference in the speed, especially on the wifi connected devices.
So I may revert back to ADSL or take Fibre if I get a good deal.
I'm an existing SKY TV customer.
I understand the normal router(SKY Hub) is not very good and they do offer the new Q Hub for reduced price.Any suggestion

Went onto live chat this morning not expecting much, had a nice and helpful advisor. Long story short, managed to get 20% off TV package, £7.50 off unlimited fibre and reduced line rental. Not bad savings for a 20 minute online chat!

Just had my cutoff date from BT as 3rd Oct but sky are not enabling until the 19th? Has anyone else had such a big difference?
Ordered mine today and i'm down as going live on 11th October. As i'm leaving my BT contract a few weeks early they are hitting me with a £55 equipment charge... shocking company they are! I tried to cancel my BT sport as they advised i'd be charged full price if I didn't cancel it but when I tried to cancel it they said it would then end up cancelling the Sky order as at this stage Sky have started the swap over so they can't make any changes to the account! (how convenient). He then offered me fibre for £12 a month but £49 activation fee. I said out of principal I would never, ever have anything from BT again. Rant over! :)

That's steep. I was wondering if you can help me out, I'd like to go for this deal, my BT contract ends 1st October, if I order today and say it goes live around the 11th or whenever will I be charged this equipment charge?

I am guessing no as I wont be out of contract when it goes live but I'm concerned about ordering before contract is finished.

they have a cheek offering this for free for 6months then after charge you to be able to record free channels. £10 a month after that, much better and a lot cheaper buying a recordable freeview or free sat box

Edited By: watfordguy on Sep 17, 2016 17:12: forgot to add cost factor
I'm sure Sky+ isn't actually any channels. Sky+ is their On Demand and record and play back feature. Everyone gets it free for having an active TV subscription or you can add it for £10 if you don't have an active TV subscription but use a sky box for the free to air channels.
So basically you'll get sky+ features free but only free channels, exactly what you get on a humax box with no subscription.

personally I cant fault TCB, never failed to pay me , tho same cant be said for quidco, but I guess as always its a bit hit n miss at times,

never take a deal thinking your going to get cashback,

cashback is a bonus should it get paid

Help me please.... Quidco or TopCashback?
Quidco. If TCB doing higher cashback, get Quidco to match it.
What I don't understand is how folks are getting the MSE AND the TCB/Quidco deals together. Surely you have to go through one or the other sites to link through to Sky - or am I missing something?
you just copy the link, and paste it in the search bar when you open quidco or topcashback
Ahh - I thought you had to follow the link from the MSE site to get their deal - signed up this way & not going via TCB - Nuts! Do you think there's a good chance Sky would give the MSE deal AND pay out on TCB/Quidco?
I very much doubt it. In fact, I would not trust Sky to pay TCB full stop, still waiting on £70 TCB from them for a contract I took out in January. The MSE is better as you pay less up front and works out better overall, so definitely go down that route!
if you already ordered it, no I very much doubt it

always looking on this site for deals so I thought I might share this one with you. I called to rejoin sky after moving in to our first home, they offer me broadband for £22.50 (poor deal) and the above tv and broadband package for £65!!! I quickly logged on here and I mentioned this deal and bang reduced down to £16.31.

So thank you for posting !!! :D
are they doing a deal with just TV at all? just about to have it installed on Friday for just the box set package and the old HD box for £19
Took my cousin yesterday to Carphone Warehouse. She was paying nearly £30pm with Virgin for landline and anytime calls only! Amazing deal took 20 mins to sign her up .
SkyQ box 1TB
Family pack HD
Line rental
Broadband
Anytime calls extra including mobiles
£16.31
£10 deposit which will be refunded on 1st bill
£9.95 for equipment ,probably router.
Wish I could have it but already with sky on 50% deal
My previous Sky contract ended on the 16th Oct last year - do you think I'll have to get my wife to sign up to get the deal, or if I arrange for installation on the 17th it'll be ok?
Got this over the phone, see other thread. The person I spoke to hadn't heard of it but credit to her she went away and came back and had managers permission. Only £10 activation action fee and, as I'm on Virgins 100meg, asked if they could do fibre max too, which apparently is up to 71mbps where I am so more than adequate, which they did. So very happy. Should have cost £88pm, so for £26.31, including line rental is sinply amazing. Thank you to all posters of all permutations!

I'm trying to get rid of Virgin Media. BBnd is slow, stops & OD is awful!!!
Claims to be 70mbps but only 37-45mbs on a very good day.

How would a Sky Fibre Pkge compare, does anyone know?

Yes, guys. Obviously, I meant I got line rental free. I was trying to make it clear that I wouldn't have pay the line rental fee on top of the £10.
my brother works for sky. You MUST have line rental to get bb/fibre. Unless you got free line rental for 12m, you will be paying £17.40pm.
When I sorted out a deal last week with Sky the guy applied an offer to my Fibre unlimited for £10 a month for life, well till 2099. As long as I keep Sports ill always have £10 Fibre unlimited.
I called Sky yesterday to see what deal they could give me as there are plenty of good deals around at the moment. I was paying £57.90 for Line Rental + Talk Anytime Extra (i think - the £8 one) + Call Divert + Fibre Pro. The guy said he couldn't do anything for the Talk package and call diversion but was able to offer me £7.40 off the line rental and £10 off the fibre.

So I'm now paying £40.50 per month. The £17.40 combined discount is equivalent to just not paying line rental, which I'm quite happy with. I could probably have got better if I persevered though.

good deal for those who don't need fibre. I managed to get fibre and line rental at £20pm for 12months when I threatened to switch to BT

Did they charge you for Fibre activation?


​No, it was a retention deal so I already had fibre with them. We had problems with the broadband however, so got the fibre activated for free when we upgraded.
RedSkywalker
Just tried Sky again this morning and got a very helpful guy who still couldn't give me fiber and line rental at £20 - best he could do was half price fiber and standard price line rental. He was obviously doing his best to keep me as a customer but I had my figures ready and could show him a saving of £260.20 if I moved to TalkTalk - he still couldn't improve the offer!

Well done!

Got to try my luck again - did you call 03300 412 548? Tried 0344 241 0499 but no luck, that's the number from the confirmation of cancellation email in case you change your mind.

Just give sky 30 days notice you want to leave.... tell them its too expensive.... refuse all discounts until you get the offer you want. Im on fibre unlimted £10 per month and half price line rental until Oct. (£18 pm all in - no contract)
I do this all the time even with the TV, but ALWAYS tell them you do not want to sign up to a new 12 month contract. That way you can get the best deals all the time
Just got me my fibre pro for £20 and free line rental for another 12m using this method.

was that a 12 month contract?

im going to ring sky today to see what they can do for me, paying £58.00 for BB, line rental, variety and one other box which is too much. I want to get fibre so will see what can be done price wise
I pay £48 for 80mb Fibre Pro, Line rental, Variety, HD Pack with F1, and multiscreen. Ringing doesn't work any more, you have to give notice to cancel and await the offer email. Then you call back and negotiate from there.

id be happy with that, ive given notice the bloke on chat was having none of it... will use yours as benchmark. they said if i cancel the broadband and not find alternative then i would have to pay for another line from another supplier.

​​well! what a rip off. Signed up no problem but they couldn't port my Virgin number over. They told me I would have to cancel the contract and start me on a new one to port the number but guaranteed I would not lose the free unlimited fibre deal. I had to start afresh and wait another two weeks for the installation date. After chasing them up to port my number over they told me they were still having trouble with the porting despite Virgin telling me there should be no problem, all they had to do was ask for the number. When they suggested another cancellation I told them just to give me the new number as they were too incompetent to port over. They then went through the contract with me and told me I would now be paying for unlimited fibre. So disgusted about the rip-off I cancelled. Thought better of it later and decided to rejoin and fight for the original deal and claim compensation.
I too was told that Sky couldn't port my number over from Virgin even tho the number originally was issued from Sky I had it years then ported it to virgin but sky say no chance of porting back??
Spoke to Virgin they said they shouldn't be a issue Sky just need to ask for it.
Spoke to B.T they said no problem in porting number to them, so why are Sky playing silly beggars.

The first time I spoke to Sky on the telephone and every time the person entered my number she said something to do with disconnected line or something, she kept trying but the problem was still there so I was informed I had to have a new number and a BT/openreach engineer etc.

Does anyone know if this would work for a customer who left sky almost 2 years ago ?
These kind of deals can be easy to get with Sky broadband, I am out of the U.K for 6 months so called. Sky to cancel my services, the sales person offered me 12 months free line rental AND 12 months free unlimited broadband for signing upto a new 12 month contract. So I have no cost for a whole year. When I get back to the UK I should also get the whole Sky TV package at 60-75% off. You just have to negotiate with these guys and don't be afraid to cancel your subscription. Call back a few days later and save £100's a year
Now does anyone know how to get this with the £70 quidco and £75 M&S Voucher's currently offered. I want the best fibre unlimited + line rental deal (though I would probably be ok with the 25GB limit on Sky's Basic Fibre.) Plus net comes in second cheapest but you only get £30 quidco cashback currently. Let me know of any other great deals. Cheers. :)
Tried going back to sky for fibre and tel yesterday and even informed them I had the email (Which we did), No chance was answer
Would love this

Sky have just upped their M&S Voucher to £75 for new customers if that helps anyone
Does this tie you in for a year? Or could you cancel after a few months?
I'm hoping they do a better offer soon, perhaps £100 voucher (not just M&S!) plus that cashback level.

To be fair Norton and McA are way better than they used to be when they earned their **** tags (and boy did they earn them), but why would anyone pay for either of them when the free alternatives are so much better?
I voted cold because I’ve had a lot of experience with both and you’d have to pay me to use this.

First thing I do with the free 12 months McAfee software preinstalled on my new PC/laptop is REMOVE IT!!!

At least its not as bad as Norton!
It's MUCH MUCH worse than Norton!

you should barely notice antivirus, it shouldn't be something that gets in the way, that pops up, nags or suggests you do something different, the more lightweight the better - a complete package should be a good antivirus, maybe some sort of system optimisation and in the past I would also recommend a firewall although modern windows machines behind a router are less in need of firewalls than computers used to be.
what's wrong with mcafee? ?
I used to be an avg man... now I'm avast.. I'd avoid McAfee

Thats great if you have Sky Fibre. I am still waiting for BT to upgrade my local exchange.

Me too, although I'm waiting for them to update my cabinet, the exchange was enabled ages ago. Currently have quite a specific enable date of 2016-2019... oO

Still wouldn't use McAfee though, it's like software for underclocking your CPU it weighs the system down so much. :D
Worse anti-virus ever. Rather I would rely windows defender.

Called sky about a deal on phone and broadband as I had 30% off my line rental which ends next month.
My broadband is free until July this year.

They said there are no offers available on the line rental but can do another 12 months free broadband or fiber at 50% off or fibre 25gb limit free for 12 months.

I took the free broadband for 12 months as I go over the 25gb on fibre a month by a lot.

Should I have taken the fibre unlimited for £10 a month?

I had already cancelled my tv package then got the 50% off from the the sky service app which I took with £50 credit aswel.

This was the first time I ever cancelled as the service I received was awful despite being with Sky over 16 years and that's just this address.

Not all sky advisers were really awful but even paying £80-£100 inc call charges a month on my whole bill some advisers were like but you have a discount applied my point was yes I do but my bills are still sky high lol

One adviser told me bcus something happens with a customer about 6 months ago ofcom made them change the way they do deals or retentions.

Now the customer will need to cancel then the win back team will be able to help but they don't call you you need to get through to them.

Last few days has been hell. One adviser saying one thing then another saying no way we don't do that

Advisor said I could take out another sky+ hd box with box free but £12 pm multiroom.

I already have 2 sky+ hd boxes

I was told he would call me back as he couldn't update his system but he didn't call back.

I also found sky has different departments for everything.

So my tv package is £44
Inc movies,sport,HD,

I have a multiroom at £5 off until November

So my total will be £49 + 17:40 = £59:95


Sorry for the vent!
Gave them another call and was told I could leave but I stayed as he gave me a £10 per month off my fibre

I also got my variety pack for 24£ from £32.
I was on sky fibre 40mb and my contract is up next month. They offered 10£ a month for 12months and 14.99£ for line rental.
I am an existing broadband customer, but phoned SKY this morning to haggle a deal. One off fee and connection fee waved just by stating how competitive BT were. result.

If you ring up retentions the deal is £10 for fibre unlimited, £9.99 line rental and no connection fee


​Is the £10 ongoing, or for 12mths?


​Just phoned. Would/could not change line rental, but Fibre Unlimited £10 for 12 months, no activation fee & Tv/sports/movies package reduced to equivalent of line rental half price.
As long as the money's right I don't care how they do it 8)
any one got any update on best deal with sky fiber or is it worth going BT ?

25GB is roughly enough data for any one of the follwoing:

1250 Hours browsing
6000 Music Tracks
160 Hours streaming music
80 Hours of Skype
200 App Downloads
25 SD Movie downloads
10,000 Emails.
It's a load of crap anyway, no such thing as Fibre they use the same copper phone line to my house....just saying before everyone jumps on me!
Also bear in mind that after the subsidised price you will revert to a higher cost fibre service. Usually more expensive than a capped ADSL service. Downgrading your line back to ADSL is not always that straightforward. If you know you will not go over the 25GB cap then why not just stick with ADSL. There are always deal around.

Some people have a life in the real world and a job and the internet isn't everything to them-take a break and see, it's nice out! Hot (if iI hadn't just taken their free broadband and free line rental for aa yr I'd take it)
And some people live and work from home, so the internet may actually be quiet important in more positive ways than you suggest. I guess getting into a car/bus and then sitting in an office 9-5 is more appealing to some.
Appealing, no. A real job, maybe. I'm taking the majority of people who actually leave home each day. Like, say, you and me. That much data is enough for the casual guy who lives outside xbox and ventures out to the cinema as his time is worth more than a gb.

By 'casual guy' I'm going to assume you mean average user. Most households in the UK don't consist of one guy. There is usually more than one person sharing an internet connection. I suspect the average usage being bandied about is per person, so multiply that by 2.3 (2011 Government figures for household occupancy in the UK) to get an average per household.

Well the average use is more than that, so that would suggest for the majority of people it isn't enough surely?
Again though, no one is saying it isn't enough for everyone, people are saying, if you use under 25GB why bother spending more on fibre? Even if this is the cheapest available to you, in 12 months it goes up, and a lot of people just keep paying - which is why new customer offers like this exist.

Ok well I could not upgrade mine online so could not even try Quidco as it does not show its available to order on the website.

I spoke to someone about a week ago and was advised they could do nothing on the activation cost of £30 or the £10 a month for 12 months for Fibre Unlimited as its already an offer.

But called tonight and was advised they have to charge me the £30 activation cost but will credit it back to the account :)

So I've got 12 Months Unlimited Fibre for £120 as I signed upto Sky ADSL+ through the recent moneysavingexpert deal and basically get free line rental! It might mean they consider the upgrade to be part the way through the existing month so it could mean paying for an extra month line rental at the end of the contract but still I'm happy :)
