ISP Sky Broadband Adds Free UK Evening and Weekend Calls

UK ISP Sky Broadband (Sky TV / Comcast) appears to be offering their Free Sky Evening and Weekend calls add-on at no extra cost (usually +£5 extra per month) for the first 18 months of service, when new customers take out one of their ADSL or FTTC based broadband and phone bundles (with or without TV).

The new promotion is set to run for any orders made between now and 17th October 2019. As usual you’ll also receive unlimited usage, a wireless broadband router, Sky Talk line rental, unlimited access to WiFi hotspots from The Cloud, Sky Shield (Parental Controls and Anti-Malware), Sky Talk Shield (nuisance call blocking) and email.

A couple of things to note with this offer are that it doesn’t show up until you run through Sky’s order system (i.e. have selected your package) and a one-off setup fee of £19.95 may apply (“set-up fee of £9.95 router delivery plus £10 connection fee may be required“). We also understand that it’s available alongside their broadband and TV bundles.

    Are they including the new Hub yet/soon?

    • Avatar Suzanne

      The hub 4.2 is available now with the boost service. This has WiFi guarantee, daily line checks and engineer call outs included

    That is not a bad offer if you use your home phone a resonable amount. I personally would prefer something like this which saves money over silly reward cards and similar any day.

    You are not told when agreeing to sky talk that talk shield is not available from every exchange.

    • Avatar beany

      Sky Talk shield should be available to all customers. It is provided over both Sky and BTs network.

      QUOTE”To get Sky Talk Shield you need to have Sky Talk and be on our network – we always try use our network but when that’s not possible we might use BT’s network. Sky Talk Shield will have been switched on if you added it when you joined Sky Talk.”

      If your exchange can not get it then i doubt you can get any call screening or blocking services from any provider, not even BT based.

    Anyone who makes even a few daytime calls per month may well find that taking the Unlimited Anytime (or equivalent) package still works out cheaper. This is because on an Evening and Weekend package any calls made during the day are very expensive (something like 22p per call plus 15p per minute). It doesn’t take many of those for the total to exceed the cost of the Anytime deal.

      ‘This is because on an Evening and Weekend package any calls made during the day are very expensive’

      No on the Evening and Weekend plan, calls during the day time at weekends are free…

      as for the standard call prices the connection charge and price per minute is pretty much the same, give or take a penny or so of all the big players such as BT, Virgin and Talk Talk.

      Did I really need to spell out “This is because on an Evening and Weekend package any calls made during the day ON WEEKDAYS are very expensive.”? People arrive home from work a couple of hours before the “evening” period kicks in, so are charged the daytime rate if they use the phone at that time.

      The point is, at 23p per call plus 15p per minute for individual weekday, daytime, calls, it takes much less than one hour to have spent more than it would cost for the Unlimited Anytime package where those calls would be simply included in the call allowance.

      “Did I really need to spell out”

      No not really as i corrected your mistake for you.

      “People arrive home from work a couple of hours before the “evening” period kicks in”

      Really people typically arrive home at around 5pm now do they?

      You sound familiar, doesn’t like being wrong with their statements, gets annoyed when they are corrected, and then still tries to argue they are right, now coupled with no idea of typical working hours… HELLO AGAIN MAX.

    • Avatar Ian

      Are you some sort of troll or just deliberately argumentative?

      The point being made is that if anyone uses their landline to make more than one hour of calls per month in the time period which counts as weekday, daytime, the call charges will be more than it would have cost to have the Unlimited Anytime package.

      Many people can reduce their overall total telephone bill by moving to an Unlimited Anytime call package.

      You had no point, your statement was wrong, i corrected it, you are butt hurt about it… Simple as that.

      Now you daft little boy with mental issues be gone.
