Sky Broadband UK Resuscitates 36Mbps Sky Fibre Unlimited Plan

UK ISP Sky Broadband has reintroduced their 36Mbps (average speed) “Sky Fibre UnlimitedFTTC broadband and phone package, which was removed from public display at the start of October (here) and that left only their 11Mbps and 63Mbps packages. They’ve also introduced some new discounts.

At the time we noted that the M.I.A package still existed within their ordering system, but it was no longer being openly promoted to new customers. All of this occurred at around the same time as Sky made a lot of their existing Sky Fibre Unlimited customers happy by giving them a free upgrade to the top 63Mbps Sky Fibre Max package (provided your line could harness the faster speeds).

The curious change, which we speculated at the time might have been a prelude to the future launch of their new FTTP and G.fast (Openreach) based “ultrafast broadband” packages (here), has now been reversed. As a result Sky are once again publicly promoting three packages instead of just two. By the sounds of it this was just a bit of clever marketing to help focus consumers on their Sky Fibre Max service.

As before the packages all include unlimited usage, a wireless router (Sky Q Hub on FTTC), 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) and email.

    Nice – that will give them back some customers.

    More likely they had a milestone to reach.

    Openreach were pushed to make big price reductions earlier this year and it would be very convenient if Sky returned the favour by pushing their subscribers to the higher speeds, which would benefit both Openreach and Sky in terms of reportable statistics around average connection speed……

    Maybe the milestone was reached…

    DO NOT GO with sky for broadband. We should be getting 77mbps we are currently getting 6! We’re coming to the end of a very long 18months, we’ve had issues since its been installed and are currently in the process of switching provider.

    I will need to re-check with Sky, as I’ve just picked the Fibre Unlimited for £30.
    Line rental 18.99 & broadband 11.01

    I am yet to pay the first Bill due on 24/11

    34.8 was guaranteed speed, getting 36.4 however Sky’s App is optimistic and shows 40

    Just upgraded from standard broadband to fibre. If I’d stayed on the standard broadband I’d be paying £30 pm for 7 meg when contract ends.
    So I’ll be getting around 30 meg, an extra 23 meg for £25 pm.
