Sky have just launched their standalone broadband products that can be purchased without also taking out a Sky TV subscription.
Previously those interested in purchasing broadband services from Sky had to be already subscribing to satellite TV services from the company in order to qualify for their broadband products. Now Sky has removed the requirement to be a TV subscriber making their broadband products standalone and better able to compete with other major players in the broadband market.
As long as you are in a Sky network area, you can now get up to 20Mb download speeds with unlimited monthly usage and free evening and weekend UK calls for £10 a month when you take Sky Broadband Unlimited with Sky Talk Freetime. Either a BT or Sky monthly telephone line rental will also be payable, which costs an additional £11 per month if subscribing to the Sky line rental.
Customers wanting to use Sky broadband but who do not subscribe to Sky TV or Sky Talk will pay £15 per month for unlimited monthly usage.
There is 24/7 support and Sky also supply a wireless router. A fair usage policy applies to all Sky broadband contracts, however Sky prices are amongst the most competitive for unlimited broadband.
Customers using an ADSL2+ exchange will automatically be allocated the higher speeds possible with this technology, however Sky claim to ensure that each customer will receive the very best speeds possible for his particular circumstances such as quality of the telephone lines, equipment in the local exchange and the distance to the nearest exchange.
