Nice little fibre offer from Sky gone live today, giving you their Fibre Unlimited Package for £25 a month (Normally £38)

Line rental and Sky Talk are Included, PLUS a £100 Prepaid MasterCard. Offsetting the reward card against the contract price would make the monthly price under £20, not too shabby!

Terrible company to deal with. Ignore the word ' fibre' because it's only …Terrible company to deal with. Ignore the word ' fibre' because it's only fibre up to the exchange then it's the crappy old copper line. Ignore any speeds they tell you because it's only estimated.I had them for years but eventually binned them a few years ago due their lies.They told me I'd get around 50mb speed but only got 14mb! I had eleven visits from BT who they blamed for the speeds but I saw through their crap.


Is the "crappy old copper line", not the same for all broadband providers except Virgin (who don't cover everywhere)? Fibre Optic to the cabinet in your area then copper - Open Reach provide the line not Sky.
There's nothing special about this deal and the only reason it's getting heat is due to HUKD editorial prowess.

Most suppliers are offering similar, but with no price increase guarantee and cashback.

The kickbacks from Sky to HUKD must be profitable.

I just signed up to Virgin Vivid Optical Fibre deal 108mbps. With line rental and free weekend calls.
Works out to £348 for the year. No activation costs or equipments fees.
A little more money than this deal posted, but faster speeds which I needed.

Literally just about to post this. It's £20 to install a new line (if you don't already have one). I got the same deal yesterday with £75 prepaid MasterCard so I'm going to call up to get this order.

Effectively £21.11 per month with new line.
Or
Effectively £20.00 per month with existing line.

Update: Spoke to Sky and credited my account with £25 so effectively the same as the deal.

I'm leaving Virgin and unfortunately they haven't offered me anything near as good yet. £30 per month for 20 Mbps and a 30Gb cap is not a good deal.

Update 2: Got a call from Virgin and they offered me £25 per month +£50 credit for 50Mbps internet. I said not sure I want to save money and the lady then offered me £16 per month for 18 months (12 month contract). So I'm sticking with Virgin. Such a crazy difference in price if you hold out and start your cancellation period.

Do the address checker, google dslchecker and put in your house number and postcode. This will give you an idea of the speeds you can achieve, I get 5 mbps over my estimate getting 40 down and 7up.

More than likely the same, if you want a similar price to this and dont want sky try plusnet.
Do Sky have a history of increasing prices mid-contract?
What I will say about sky is that they have very good cs.

Virgin deal 100mb and weekend calls £20 per month finishing so phoned them and they offered nothing.

Went to Sky, who we have TV with and they originally offered just £25 per month but no calls but free installation as we are existing customers. I went back to them on phone and they gave £70 credit to get near the prepaid card offer last weekend. Reasonably happy with this, although half the broadband speed of course.

Yeah customer service people usually try to avoid doing any work. It's only BT problem fault outside your home, not if you've been mis sold broadband speeds by Sky.

Surely that depends on where you live doesn’t it?? I know some properties on my estate are only equipped with ‘Fibre to cabinet’ as you describe (and like mine is..😡), while others enjoy ‘Fibre to prem’ and achieve FAR greater speeds as a result....

OP - I take it this is for new connections only??

£15/20 cashback from TCB if it works

I’ve been with Sky years, the TV sub price is prone to fluctuating but fibre cost remains pretty consistent. I’m one of these people that does religiously haggle with Sky every 12 months though.
Got sky fibre max for £20, give them a call
Great, I used this to renegotiate my Virgin deal. Nice one
I have Fibre Pro £20, line rental is £19 pay as you go. comes about £40 a month
I get about 70s

Fibre Max Speed is only about 40 Mbps, Pro is 70-77 I think. Lower if exchange is far.
Sky Broadband or Vodafone Home Broadband?

I know it's openreach/BT who supply the line. Doesn't change things.

I'm with VM now.

Yes but you have the option to leave if they do due to offcom rulings

Sky like any other provider use openreaches estimates for speed. All of the fibre to the cab and any other fibre product down a line is managed by openreach not the isp. Unlike adsl where isps have more control, sky do not miss sell it as its down to records held by openreach.

Vodaphone cs is like talk talk, would chose plusnet over them.

No vm in my area and tbh some areas are congested. Like all fibre in the uk its sub par compared to other countries.
Tried to get this deal but they wouldn't give the £100 prepaid card because I already have sky tv. Shame as I would have gone for it.

I would if I was you unless you want the gift card, I got my sister on PN as sky wouldnt offer her a deal. She has no difference in speeds. The good thing with PN is if you are a gamer they typically have better latency/ping times.
To be honest I was going to leave sky and go to plusnet a few weeks ago but recontracted to sky for my tv and internet for £40 a month for 18 months.

That's because steam's data center allows that speed, probably to make sure everyone can download concurrently.

FTTC

Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) increases basic broadband speeds by connecting powerful fibre optic cable to the cabinet, then copper wires to your home or business.

This is what most people have available in their area, so it's not just Sky.
