how? it says at the basket, make sure you have items in it

If you already have Sky Broadband, you can claim your free booster from 27 December.

don't know how :s If I try again it says 'make sure you have items'

I just clicked redeem offer, logged in, went to basket, and confirmed order. Got an order number and an email.

Now when I try, it says monthly cost £0.00, but when I did it first time, it had my usually monthly cost in there, with a one off fee of £0.00.

I still probably wont get anything though.

Thanks..

You might have just paid for it then

All sorted, easy online ordering. Been a customer for 5 years, no probs. thanks a lot OP!

It's refusing to add to my basket, so I spoke to a live chat person, they told me I have to ring up for some reason, so I did, and they said to get it for free you have to order online, or pay £20 over the phone.

That's because it's not the 27th December yet

But you have all these other people with success stories?!

freebiehunter

Yeah I did, I paid the £0.00 that my basket said

nayffy

But you have all these other people with success stories?!



All 2 of them lol

Still, even if one person can do it, then it shows that it's available.

Who expired this?? Would have given heat, but can't. Thanks OP

Can people not be bothered to read, OP you might want to get it unexpired and add "from 27th December" to the title

Someone else has posted this since that I commented on. But would have voted hot for sure

andrew22

Yep it will show as £0.00 but it doesn't actually add anything to your 'order' after checkout ....If it has done it will show it in your full sky portfolio. The system is in place but not active until 27th

Another 7 days isnt going to make any difference. If this wasnt free then noone would care and very few people will actually need one anyway.

Just sit tight and wait until the 27th.

So the others who ordered, they probably haven't gone through either. Never mind, I don't even need one, just that it is free

ps, I also asked about the hub, and was told there was no offer on for those now or coming up.

Assuming you mean the one with the fibre modem built in then I will … Assuming you mean the one with the fibre modem built in then I will believe it when I see it given that its a paid for upgrade for existing subscribers at the moment.



I got the fiber router for free. It makes sense because they are going to be doing a big push on fiber.If they have already died or customers with the new router, they can say to them that there is nothing to do. They will tell them to switch over to a fiber package and it will just magically kick in.

New customers are getting them as a 'self install'. I already have sky fiber and have the openreach box and white sky cube router.

The only difference between the white and black is that the black has the fibre modem built in - it still doesnt have GigE ports ffs - so if they want to replace it for free after 6 months then fine but I am not going to pay just to have one less box to look at.

I'm not a new customer though, been with Sky for about 3 years. What I'm saying is that they are going to be targeting their broadband customers to get them off copper connections and onto fibre. If they can 'infiltrate' homes on copper ADSL connections with a new router that is fibre ready, they can later on advertise that the switch to fibre is completely hassle free. Imagine how many customers that would reject such an upgrade because it meant new equipment etc would agree to it if all they have to do is say yes and then everything happens magically - one day they just have much faster broadband. Especially if it works out cheaper than their current Sky broadband option when they sign up to fibre.

I wouldn't be surprised if they rolled them out, and even started approaching existing customers in newly fibred areas, contacting them directly to offer to upgrade their router for free. I wouldn't be surprised if there was no 12 month contract obligation for the upgrade either - because the 12 month contract will come when they get customers to upgrade from standard broadband to their 38Mbit fibre option (which they will push harder than their 76Mbit option).

It won't be any less hassle than at present. To switch to fibre you'll still need an Openreach engineer, not just to connect you up to the new cabinet in the street but also to change the master socket in your house. I speak from experience of having had that engineer visit just this week. When he couldn't finish the job because there was a fault in the fibre cabinet, I thought he wouldn't need to get into the house again once the fault is fixed because he'd already done that part - but in order to turn my ADSL back on, he had to switch back to the old faceplate.

That's the point of these new routers - no engineer visit. They do the work at the cabinet but the router plugs straight into your existing outlet.

Will try on the 27th then

I have this week moved over from O2 to Sky, am I classed as a new customer?
