UPD Sky UK Secretly Launch 76Mb Superfast Broadband Sky Fibre Pro Package

Thursday, Apr 26th, 2012 (8:02 am) - Score 9,778

Customers of Sky Broadband (BSkyB) have discovered that the ISP is now offering a secret Sky Fibre Pro package, which delivers superfast broadband download speeds of up to 76Mbps and upload speeds of up to 19Mbps for £30 a month. Otherwise the service mirrors the recently launched and cheaper SkyBroadband Unlimited Fibre / 40Mbps package (here).

New customers will also need to bundle the Sky Talk (calls) and Sky Line Rental (£12.25 a month) service alongside the package which, provided you only take the ‘Sky Talk Freetime‘ (free evening and weekend calls to UK landlines) option, would push the total cost up to at least £42.25 a month.

A Sky Spokesperson told ISPreview.co.uk:

Sky yesterday made available a new fibre broadband product – Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro. It offers speeds of up to 76Mb and is available for customers calling Sky. With truly unlimited downloads and an upload speed of 19Mb, it’s available at a cost of £30 per month.

It is currently only available to customers who do not already have Sky Broadband or Sky Fibre, although we are working on making it available to existing Sky Broadband customers who would like to experience these faster speeds. As with Sky Fibre Unlimited, customer must also take their calls and line rental from Sky. They must also be in a Sky network area.

Interested customers should call us.

We note that only some customers have had any luck spotting the service via Sky’s Availability Checker, while others have been offered it over the phone (as per the statement). The package itself does not show on Sky’s website, although few will be surprised that the operator would launch such a service after the recent 80Mbps FTTC technology upgrades and related adoption by rival ISPs (e.g. BTInfinity).

On the other hand £30 is quite a jump from the otherwise impressively priced Sky Broadband Unlimited Fibre, which delivers up to 40Mbps (2Mbps uploads) for just £20 a month with “truly unlimited” usage. In an ideal world Sky would also see its way to providing the new service alongside a good router, instead of the somewhat underwhelming budget kit that they offer today.
