Media and Internet giant Sky Broadband has today made a new Sky Wireless Booster device available for free to their new and existing UK customers. On top of that their standard and fibre unlimited broadband packages are being offered at half price for the first 6-12 months of service.

Firstly, the new Sky Wireless Booster, which will be available for free from 26th December 2013 to 30th January 2014 (for both new and existing customers), does what it says on the tin and claims to help extend the range of your wifi signal “up to 100% further in [your] home compared to” similar routers from TalkTalk, BT and Sky Broadband. It should be noted that Sky’s claim is based on “straight line wireless range“.

In addition Sky Broadband has cut the price of its two top Internet access packages in half, although you still have to pay Sky Line Rental at £15.40 a month on top (note: this falls to £11.70 when pre-paying 12 months in advance).

Sky Fibre Unlimited and Free Weekend Calls
* Up to 38Mbps “typical” download speeds (40Mbps max)
* Truly unlimited downloads
* Inclusive weekend UK calls
* Free Sky Hub Wireless Router – £2.18 delivery charge
* Free Unlimited access to WiFi Hotspots from The Cloud
* Free Parental Controls
* 12 Month Contract

PRICE: £10 Per Month for the first 6 Months (£20 thereafter)

It’s worth pointing out that Sky also offer a Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro package with up to 76Mbps speeds but this has no discount and costs from £30 per month. As usual you need to live within Sky’s unbundled (LLU) network coverage in order to take advantage of these prices. Similarly if BT hasn’t rolled FTTC out to your area then the Fibre packages will not be available.

As a side note the Wireless Booster is based on the 801.11n wifi spec (2 x 2 Mimo) and offers maximum 144Mbps throughput (we think that should be 802.11n but 801 is in the PR).
