Sky UK Offers FTTC Fibre Broadband “free forever” with Sky Sports TV

Monday, July 25th, 2016 (10:24 am) - Score 28,744

New and existing Sky TV (Sky Broadband) customers who sign-up for Sky Sports are being offered the option to get the Sky Fibre Broadband (‘up to 38Mbps FTTC) service “free forever“, alternatively they can opt for a £10 per month discount off the normally £20 per month Sky Fibre Unlimited service.

As usual there are a few obvious caveats to the deal, which is that customers would be required to maintain continuous Sky TV, Sky Sports, Sky Fibre, Sky Talk (voice calls) and Sky Line Rental subscriptions in order to remain eligible for the discount.

Similarly the “free forever” Sky Fibre Broadband service is restricted to a 25GB per month usage cap and usually costs £10 per month (outside of discount offers), unless you opt for the discounted £10 per month Sky Fibre Unlimited (normally £20) option instead. Mind you, nothing in this market truly lasts forever.

The Small Print

Free Fibre Forever Offer: 25GB usage cap. Available to new and existing Sky TV with Sky Sports customers (from £47.50 per month (pm)) taking new 12 month minimum terms for Sky Fibre, Sky Talk (£0-12pm) and Sky Line Rental (£17.40pm) and paying a £50 fibre activation fee where applicable (existing Sky Sports and up to 17Mb Sky Broadband customers only). Continuous Sky TV, Sky Sports, Sky Fibre, Sky Talk & Sky Line Rental subscriptions required to remain eligible otherwise standard price applies for Sky Fibre (currently £10pm with Sky Talk and Sky Line Rental). Not available with any other offer, unless otherwise stated.

Separately those who have no interest in Sky TV or Sky Sports can still sign-up to the various Sky Broadband packages at half price, but remember to add the £17.40 per month cost of line rental, £6.95 router delivery charge and £50 fibre activation fee – where applicable for existing Sky Broadband customers – on top.

We should add that Sky are also offering £10 off their normally £30 per month Fibre Pro (76Mb FTTC product) “forever”, although this is only available to purchase over the phone.

    Forever?

    At some point in the future the product will cease to exist as it will be replaced by something better (FTTP/G.Fast/Other), how can they offer it forever 🙂

      There is a whiff of the “free broadband for life” offer that Orange’s old Home Broadband service once touted, before being withdrawn some years later.

      http://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2012/10/orange-uk-scraps-free-broadband-for-life-deal-for-mobile-users.html

      I’d suppose they’re banking on the fact that 25GB won’t be enough for most people “forever” and eventually they’ll want to upgrade.

      There will no doubt be an FLP applied (“fair lifetime policy”)! 🙂

      Mark, just to add, the Orange Home free broadband with mobile contract was a nightmare.

      I did tech support for em back in the day with that and then on the escalations desk…Dodgy ways of capping em, so many different tier packages back in Orange home with that god forsaken livebox..urgh…nightmares!

    Ah look. All you need to do is keep a Sky Sports subscription running forever too.

    Not a cynical attempt to lock you into expensive TV packages, is it?

    1. Avatar Ignition says:

      Isn’t that Sky’s entire strategy with broadband?

    2. Avatar MikeW says:

      Yes, of course.

      VM are no different, though a slightly different angle. BT would love to do the same, but it has to approach it from an entirely different angle. TalkTalk would love to do it too, even if they approach it from even more entry-level than BT. With Netflix and Amazon on the sidelines.

      Shock, horror. All the main ISPs want us watching TV content, and (of course) paying for it. It seems to be just a few MPs that don’t see it as a massively important aspect of superfast broadband – or, more truthfully, the real driver.

    Free Fibre Broadband Forever should be BANNED because it won’t last long!

    1. Avatar Ignition says:

      So should the discounts you get on your service as if everyone had them the provider would go out of business but it is what it is.

  4. Avatar Jools says:

    All providers are a ripp off, they dont just wanna make profit, they wanna make as much profit at the expense of the customer, thats why every few months prices are hiked, we’re told it to reinvest, b******t, its to ripp off customers

    £47.50 pm for sky sports and still have to pay £50 for a engineer to goto the exchange and switch you over sounds free forever cost be hidden in the sky sports package, plus one reason i not upgraded and its not to the cost pm its due the fact why should a existing customer have to pay for a engineer who does not come to your house when new customers get better treatment and dont need to pay nowt

  6. Avatar Doug says:

    I pay over £100pm for the full package off SKY wy should i have to pay more than a new costumer to switch to SKY fibre.
