Sky Mobile UK Introduces 4G Mobile Plan with a 10GB Data Allowance

Sky Mobile UK

Sky (Sky Broadband) has today introduced a new Sky Mobile 4G plan with a bigger 10GB data allowance for £20 per month. On top of that they’ve also reduced the price of their 5GB plan from £20 to £15 per month and removed the old 3GB plan entirely (existing customers can upgrade).

As usual existing Sky TV customers will also benefit from free unlimited UK calls and texts on all of the plans. Unfortunately if you’re NOT a Sky TV subscriber then you’ll need to pay an extra +£10 per month to receive unlimited calls and texts (otherwise the calls and texts are pay-as-you-go). Meanwhile existing Sky Broadband and phone customers aren’t offered any such discounts, unless they add Sky TV.

Liz Wynn, Sky’s Director of Mobile, said:

“We launched Sky Mobile to offer more flexibility and great value – and that’s exactly what we’re doing by introducing our new data plan. 10GB is ideal for people who want to use their phone to do it all – from streaming, browsing and watching to gaming. September is an important month for our customers who want to get their hands on the latest phones, and we’re excited to now give them even more choice and value.”

The changes are due to be introduced from 15th September this week. Sky’s mobile service is based off a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) agreement with O2 (Telefonica UK).

Sky Mobile’s Key Features

· Roll – Customers can roll over unused data into their online ‘piggybank’ each month (in 1GB increments), to use whenever they need for up to 3 years. Some rivals do this, but the data roll-over usually expires quite quickly.

· Mix – Customers can create a plan that’s right for them, which they can change every month. Just to clarify this, Sky Mobile plans are still 12 month contracts, but customers are free to change their “Mix” of data, calls and texts every month.

· Save – Sky TV customers don’t have to pay for unlimited UK calls or texts with any Sky Mobile data plan. Each household will also be able to register up to 5 SIMs, which Sky claims could generate an annual saving of up to £600 a year on their Sky Mobile bill. In addition, Sky+ customers choosing to take Sky Mobile will receive Sky Go Extra for free, saving £60 a year.

· Sync – Sky TV customers can create their personal playlists of favourite shows, synced from their Sky box at home, to watch wherever they are. This mobile entertainment service is available for Sky+ customers at launch, with the functionality coming for customers with a Sky Q box next year.

· Swap – After 12 or 24 months, Sky will let customers know when it’s time to Swap and they can then choose a brand new phone from their entire range of handsets, including Samsung, LG and Sony (these aren’t available until tomorrow). This service is said to be “free of charges – no upgrade fees, no admin charges and delivered for free.

    Pfftttt…10gb for £20 pm is hardly a great deal. EE retentions recently gave me their sim-only 30gb plan (with unlimited calls & texts) for £21 pm.

      Whereas had you gone with Three…

      Pfftttt…30gb for £21 pm is hardly a great deal. Three retentions recently gave me their sim-only 1000gb plan (with unlimited calls & texts) for £29 pm.

      But every man & his dog knows the EE network is far superior to the Three network, especially when it comes to 4G coverage & speeds. I would say even O2’s 4G network (on which Sky mobile runs on) is superior to Three’s 4G coverage. So the very generous data allowance on Three means diddly squat if you can’t use it very well.

      Yes their network is faster but as a heavy user I don’t see the point if I’ll run out of data very quickly, I generally get 10Mbps+ on 3G in rural areas and 50Mbps+ on 4G.

      “But every man & his dog knows the EE network is far superior…”

      Yet i assume you planned on leaving in which to get the retention deal you mention, or are they so wonderful they also randomly offer that. Like mike id take more data over a couple of Mbs more speed anytime.

    What about the 500MB £5 plan? That doubling to 1GB?

    Also their site hasn’t been updated yet it seems.

  3. Lee

    I’m a Sky fibre customer and get the £15 plan for £7.50, without Sky TV.

    At that price it’s pretty unbeatable.
