ISP Sky Broadband Cuts UK Prices and Adds Samsung Galaxy Tablet

Friday, January 19th, 2018 (9:02 am) - Score 1,480

Sky Broadband has today moved to discount the monthly prices of their broadband and phone bundles for new customers. On top of that they’re also offering the option of either taking those packages with a £50 Prepaid MasterCard or a Samsung Galaxy Tab E (sells for around £130 at retail) computer.

As usual all of Sky’s internet and phone 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 and Sky Yahoo Email.

The monthly price discount isn’t quite as dramatic as the one Sky ran during their Black Friday promotion last year but then that offer didn’t bundle a Samsung Galaxy Tab E device. At the time of writing we’re unsure precisely which Tab E customers will receive, although it appears to be the one that is currently available from around £130-£140 in the shops with a 9.6″ display (they’ve been on the market for awhile).

Sky Unlimited (ADSL2+)
* Download speeds up to 17Mbps (1Mbps up) – Average speed 11Mb
* Setup fee £9.95 (one-off)
* 12 Month contract

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

Sky Fibre Unlimited (FTTC)

* Setup fee £59.95 (one-off)
* 18 Month contract

PRICE: £32 a month for 18 months (£38.99 thereafter)

* 18 Month contract

PRICE: £37 a month for 18 months (£43.99 thereafter)

The promotions look set to last until 8th February 2018 and new customers can of course add the Sky TV service or additional calling options (anytime calls etc.) at extra cost.

      *Black Friday deal @£25pm

    2. Tim says:

      Of course this is only available in Sky Broadband areas, so Market A areas like mine can’t have Sky broadband at any price. I had thought that when our exchange was upgraded to ADSL2+ last year we would get more choice of ISP, but that hasn’t happened.

  2. But beware of hellacious call charges 😉

    1. Ultraspeedy says:

      Call charges are 9.5p per minute which is not hellacious (whatever that means). A quick compare with other large providers shows costs are hellaciously more.

      BT are 13p per minute. Talk Talk are 13.5p per minute without a broadband package and 10.5p per minute with.

      Mobile calls are a similar story with Sky around 2p per minute cheaper.

      You can also add anytime calls for £5 per month which is also cheaper than the 2 above.

      sky anytime calls are £8

      Mis-hit the key on the numeric keypad.

    I do take umbrage with the supposed free WiFi as it never works. Any time I see a The Cloud hotspot I cannot log in with my sky details and use it, it requires me to create yet another account and log in with that. I don’t see why I should have to do that as handing your details over yet again is another form of payment. That aside, I’ve had Sky Fibre for a few years and they’re pretty ok, although I’m paying about 50 quid a month (including call packages) and I’m only getting about 18Mb down and 3 up thanks to a stupidly long line to the cabinet which is the fault of Openreach’s cheapness, but I keep meaning to threaten to leave to try and get the price down a bit or get and upgrade to Fibre Max (although I have no idea if that would actually make any difference).
