Sky Broadband Removes FREE Broadband Setup
By: MarkJ - 27 July, 2007 (8:25 AM)

One of our readers (Mel) has spotted that Sky appears to have introduced a new one-off 30 broadband set-up charge to its "Max" (16Mbps) package.

Curiously, at the time of writing, their website still promotes "free" activation (here), yet those attempting to sign-up have reportedly had the ISP attempt to levy it against them. To further confuse matters their comparison page (here) has a possibly related and rather odd clause in the small print:

One-off 30 standard set-up cost applies when you take up Sky products before 14 September.

Sky themselves have reportedly been referring to this as an "installation" charge, yet the wording states it as a set-up fee, while the extra costs dialogue on the very same comparison page drops down with a 0 in activation. Confused?
