It's not free u have to pay line rental.

If they paid me i still wouldn't have it

Far from free the line rental makes up for the "low price"

line rental is the same as my bt line rental

This has been around for months. Also all I could get was under 1mg. Sky broadband is awful.

I have Sky Broadband & no problems.Almost 5mg & they offered me free Broadband for the next 2 years if I retained their line rental (which is the same as B.T)

I've had this for last 3 months. Can't complain about speeds so far. I also got £100 cashback from Quidco and £100 M & S gift card.

Ok the deal clearly doesnt benefit you but may benefit others

i have " free" sky broadband . great service. would get virgan but it isnt in my area so 16pound a month line rental is a good deal

I'm cancelling mine, peak times I get 14mb/s but after 11pm it drops to less than 2mb/s

cheers. Personally im with bt but this looks cheaper

Except for the usual installation screw ups (mostly openreach's fault and the general state of all ISP's connection policies) I've had a perfect service from sky, and o2 before that. I've only ever paid for line rental so this is really just the usual price if you haggle properly. The only thing is now you can't pay the year upfront for £120 like you used to. So that's a shame. I've never had any peak/off-peak issues with sky adsl, as far as I know they don't do any throttling or management.

But if you have Virgin media if you take it without phone line isn't it just about the same price as with it ?

Yeah yeah, just because they don't explicitly state 'line rental' its all included and Virgin are in no way cheap. And besides, Virgin is still unavailable in a large proportion of the country, so its still a decent deal regardless.... fool....

5mg of Valium?

Thanks OP. I will give it a go. I'm not particularly dissatisfied with my present TalkTalk setup, but they keep hassling me to sign up for 18 months and get half price BB for a year and take their TV box , which I really don't want or need - so, if it get's shot of the phone calls about the TV box it'll be worth it. Factor in a possible £65 with Quidco and an M&S voucher for £50 and it seems good. I've kept a record of my present speeds with TT so, if there's a significant deterioration, I'll pester Sky until they get it right. Line rental is the same as I'm paying ATM so fingers crossed there's no speed drops. Worth noting that the line rental contract of this offer seems to be 18 months as far as I can see..

I have sky bb. It's bad:( just warning those who may want it. Also once you sign on the customer support is terrible.

You have been conned ! Just get them to change your package to a broadband only, I'm paying just over £15 for this (through retentions).

Tbh any cheap broadband package is a deal. Im sure virgin is excellent in certain areas but its shocking where i live. Sky is average here so im with bt as its super fast.

Where my mum lives bt is awful so she is with sky really depends on your area

it is standard phone line charges at which is added to yr package,
