      Free Broadband Unlimited

      A quick subscription question:

      I'm currently on Mid (or was, they appear to have changed that now to "everyday"), paying 5 per month (10 per month -5 for having the telephone package).

      On Sky's site there is an advert offering Unlimited Broadband for 6 months, for free - but I've also noticed in some of the adverts that it is for new customers only. However, it does appear to offer it as an "upgrade special offer" when I go to look at my account.

      My question is - am I eligible for the 6 months free upgrade, and what happens after the 6 months is up, especially considering the new price increases/changes being implemented soon?

      My line is too long to benefit from the increase in speed, and I have only just, this month, been put on the useage tracker so don't know how much of my 10gb I'm using, but I know that when the changes come in, I will have to go onto the higher of the two packages, which will cost me more than I'm currently paying - if I can take advantage of this offer, then at least I will be offsetting some of that additional cost for a while.

      I think the catch is that you have to sign up to a 12 month contract for Sky Phone Rental

      I'm already using Sky for that - hate BT.

      Nothing to stop you signing up then, it says the discount is given against the phone rental. Offer ends 31/5.

      I think after the 6 months you'll increase to 7.50 per month, at least that is what I've been told.

      Well I'll make sure they've got my connection fixed (Intermittent Connection Fault - 2 weeks on) and then probably go for that deal.
