Topcashback.... beware of foul play..... They don't give cash back for Sky....
I ditched my good Virgin offer retention for £21/per month (including phone line + broadband - 40 mbps optical fibre).... I was tricked into opt Sky..with Topcahsback offer....

TopCahsBack declined to honour the cashback, and sky washed their hands away.... now a prisoner to sky with a sluggish broadband at peak time, less than 1 mbps to after midnight 4 mbps.... Also paying £19 per month....
Please call up Sky & get email confirmation from TopCashBack before committing.....
I have quit using Topcashback (though Quidco is by far the best....) and Waiting for completing 12 months to cancel the Sky ....

All I can see is
18 mths contract
£18 for 12 months = 216
£30 for remaining 6 months = £180
£9.95 fee
Total =£405.95
-. 110
-. 50
=. 245.95
÷ 18 £13.66
Am I missing something?
It's for 12 months.

Ordered this for a relative, even with £20 install it’s the cheapest line rental about AND broadband to boot!

Yeah there all at it, the price you pay may not be the price you pay, lack of leadership from Ofcom with current legislation for everyone else to allow a unknown financial price rise (% rise of a index) in a minimum term and thus a change of terms under the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977/ Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999 (now Consumer Tights Act 2015 citizensadvice.org.uk/abo…15/ ) to be bipassed by with their blessing. ie as a gov dept body we are throwing you to the dogs, go to court we won’t make a ruling against those we licence and regulate.

OFCOM: “We make sure that people in the UK get the best from their communications services and are protected from scams and sharp practices, while ensuring that competition can thrive”

Really? OFCON, just REALLY..

Edit: added link to current replacement legislation, although some Unfair Terms are still valid under 1977 Act

You can cancel a contract if the price rises within 30 days. The problemis to find another good deal at short notice.

Whats the speed for the broadband?


It’s ADSL2+ capped by Ofcom advertised as upto 16MBPS

i get 16 (capped surfing) but 4K pulls the full 24MBPS ADSL2+ speed, depends on your distance but if it says 16 on Sky checker you probably have access to the full or near enough 24MBPS

Depends where you live. Up to 20mb could mean 4mb or 1mb at peak times (or less). Sky should give you a minimum speed when you sign up. If they don't stick to it you can cancel.

No Ofcom ruled if the “telecom contract” states price rises in terms at inflation rates you can’t, which makes a mockery of Unfair Contract legislation, it doesn’t even cap a price rise so if inflation goes through the roof you could end up with a expensive telecommunications contract of any type - or go to court as a Unfair Term that Ofcom told the defendant was ‘fair’.

A telecom company is more than capable en masse of calculating in fixed prices for minimum terms to cover inflationbut Ofcon has said it doesn’t need to the consumer can pay a unknown % rise - shambles.

Yes, I remember back then, TCB was paying £5-10 more, but I chose quidco for the peace of mind, no problems, tracked after 2-3 days...I don't think anybody will give you cash back confirmation, besides it takes at least 3-4 to get paid.

Probably they will try to rise the monthly payment so you ll have the option to get out.
If I am already a sky customer - with 3 months left of my contract - can I still sign up to this for another 12 months????????

Just to put the other side of the coin...I've done this deal twice now, once with Topcashback and once with Quidco. Both paid out the cashback and Sky sent the reward card without any problems. My current Sky speed is consistently between 19 and 20 Mbps but I'm close to the green box and a lot of the cable has been reinstalled so I have a good connection. The one time I did have a nightmare with Sky for 8 months (!) ultimately turned out to be Openreach's fault but Sky's efforts and communication between them and openreach could have been a lot better. Some people are just unlucky or don't read all the terms and conditions and then feel hard done by. I don't particularly want to promote Sky but when it does work it works great.

  • What will stop me getting cashback?
    • If you have been a customer with Sky within the last 12 months


So you could get someone else to start the contract for you and also suffer any early contract termination feees that sky would want.

Ok thank you.

I’ve been with sky broadband the last 2 years from deals from HotUkD.

At the moment it’s £9.50 a month in my missus name. Last year it was £5 a month in my name. Love it. Lol

But like I say... I’m hoping in another 3 months that there is another good deal to be had somewhere.

Make sure they don't lose you landline number if you are switching. It's a pain to get it back, but BT can held if you switch to them within 3 months. One bitten, twice shy. Appalling customer care.

Wife has Sky BB & Line in her name. I can take this offer up - as I am a new customer (different name - same household).

Q:Existing landline number was provided by Sky. We want to retain it.

How can I keep it? Can it be done?
