We have some good news, we have some bad news. Let’s start with good news.
Everyone who is interested in Sky’s recent rather fetching promotion which includes half a year of free unlimited broadband and inclusive evening and weekend calls along with a £25 M&S (Marks and Spencer) voucher has an extra month to grab the deal (voucher promo ends this month, the free broadband part runs until September 27th).
Broadbandwatcher would like to underline that the promotion includes only Sky’s standard ADSL+ broadband deal, not its newest fibre offering.
Also, newbies will see themselves paying £12.25 a month for line rental (as long as they sign up prior to the 1st of September when the price freeze melts and rises to £14.40).
The contracts come on a 12 month basis. After half a year, customers will need to pay £10 per month, and an additional charge if they want digital TV services (starts at a monthly rate of £21.50), although the latter is optional.
The price hikes will affect only newbies, existing customers will see no changes to their services. It’s probably wise to order by the 1st of September.
Sky’s promoted 6 months free package includes:
- Average speeds of 14Mbps;
- No FUPs, unlimited allowance
- Free evening and weekend UK calls
- Inclusive Wi-Fi Router
Other benefits include free access to the Cloud’s network, and a 12 month free trial of McAfee antivirus software.
