UK ISP Sky Broadband in Sharp Price Cut of Fibre and Phone Prices

The so-called “Black Friday” bonanza of discounting is beginning to get under way. Sky Broadband have been one of the first to jump by significantly cutting the monthly prices and setups fee of their unlimited broadband and superfast “fibre” (FTTC) bundles for new customers.

All of Sky’s bundles include a wireless router, Sky Talk line rental (standard UK call rates), unlimited access to WiFi hotspots from The Cloud, Sky Shield (Parental Controls and Anti-Malware), Sky Talk Shield nuisance call blocking, unlimited usage, Sky Yahoo Email and you’ll also receive the gift of a £50 Prepaid MasterCard.

We’ll only list the broadband and phone bundles below, but similar discounts have also been extended to their Sky TV bundles. The promotions look set to last until 7th December.

Sky Unlimited
* Download speeds up to 17Mbps (1Mbps upload) – Average speed 11Mb
* 12 Month contract
* Setup fee £19.95 (one-off)

PRICE: £18 a month for 12 months (£28.99 thereafter)

Sky Fibre Unlimited
* Download speeds up to 38Mbps (9.5Mbps upload) – Average speed 34Mb
* Setup fee £29.95 (one-off)
* 18 Month contract

PRICE: £25 a month for 18 months (£38.99 thereafter)

Sky Fibre Max
* Download speeds up to 76Mbps (19Mbps upload) – Average speed 57Mb
* Setup fee £29.95 (one-off)
* 18 Month contract

PRICE: £30 a month for 18 months (£43.99 thereafter)

Some of the new promotions actually went live last Friday but we were distracted by a database update of our UK ISP Listings at the time.

    The price is good, but Sky won’t let you use your own router for fibre, so… No.

    • Crafty subscribers with Wireshark and one of Sky’s older routers can however extract the necessary details 😉 . Not sure if this works on the newer Sky Q Hub though.

    I bought a second router that works threw internet i just disable wofo on sky and have it running threw my new router

    I’ve just bought sky broadband,so now I’m an existing customer, Where’s the deals for them?Yet again sky ignores it’s customers.

    • I’ve tended to notice that they rotate offers for new and existing customers. So usually when there’s a good deal on for new subscribers (like now), then existing customers won’t be able to benefit, but when the prices return to normal for new subscribers then that’s when they do offers via the ‘Upgrades & Offers’ page for existing customers. Seems to be a trend.

    • CarlT

      You only just purchased it and will be in contract – why would Sky offer you a deal?

      When your contract is up you’ll likely have some options but few businesses will make a sale then offer to reduce the price of something someone has purchased while they are under contract.

      I’ve been unpleasantly surprised with Plusnet. They don’t seem to have any offers for existing customers. When I asked to upgrade to fibre, they just offered me to pay a standard price while committing to a new fixed term. Silly.

    • Daniel

      if you login to your account and go down to the bottom the deal is there to upgrade its on mine and im on standard broadband

    • eM

      Steve, I spoke to their retentions today on behalf of my friend who also just upgraded to fibre at full price, £38 per month, and they were happy to give him this deal, so you can try it too. They initially offered £28 per month, but after we said there was a £25 promo on their webpage, they agreed to get his price down to £25 too. He was still within his 31-day cancellation period (I know it’s usually 14 days but for some reason, they said 31 when making a new contract over the phone?)

    Hi it all depends how you argue with them I started a new contract with sky on 16th October and have sky unlimited for £18 with a further £3 discount so pay £49.49 for broadband phone box set TV q2 box 2tb sky q mini box multi room and sky sports hd

    • Simon

      Yes but remember when Sky up their prices mid contract you can NOT leave early!

      SO look out for that one.

      We got shafted on a 1/2 for 12 months for leaving virgin offer – which went up in month 6! We finished it out and dumped sky for good

  5. Mike

    Any discounts for the 55Mbps package?

    • eM

      Given that you can only get this package as a downgrade from Fibre Max, and Fibre Max is currently at £30, it would be logical that 55 MBps package would be a bit cheaper.
      Also, I got to speak to Sky retentions today and they confirmed that, if you were to order the Fibre Unlimited during this promotion, and then decide to upgrade to Fibre Max later in the contract, you would not lose the discount you got as part of this deal. Which is better than what their competitors do 🙂

    • Mike

      I upgraded straight from ADSL to the 55Mbps package, also got a discount unrelated to this offer (while ago) after some haggling, the official price is between the 40 and 80Mbps packages iirc.

  6. Onephat

    Mike I signed up for that package today (Sky Fibre Plus – the 55mb package). 28 for 18 months inc line rental and free setup.
