      Wait? Why are they essentially blackmailing us into their phone service?

      They seem to make this sound like its a good thing.

      Re: Update on Sky Broadband pricing changes

      but doubling it when you're still in minimum 12 month term is beyond a joke,
      I think this part of the T & Cs covers that, which is why the price is not being raised for anyone joining before November, when the increases were officially announced. Anyone joining after the effective date would be aware of the price increase and would be deemed to accept it. I would imagine that the 'notice of change' will be the letter you receive advising you of the increase, although that may not be the case. I think you may find the increase you have been told of is a book-keeping act and you will be given a discount from the TV part of your subs. You should try to get this confirmed in writing, as according to the terms, you have only 1 month after the date of the letter to leave without penalty, should you wish to do so.

      Sky Broadband is variable and our prices, Products and the Sky Broadband Extras can change, even during your Minimum Term. However, if we reduce the level of service provided by your chosen Product and you reasonably consider that you have been disadvantaged by this you will have a right to move to another Product or end this Contract. You can also end the Contract during your Minimum Term if we increase your Sky Broadband Payment more than once, or by more than 10% or the annual increase in the UK Retail Price Index, whichever is the greater. If you wish to end this Contract in these circumstances, then you need to let us know within one calendar month of notice of the change (Conditions 7(a), 11(c) and 11(d)).

      Read the Sky broadband T&C's - it states prices are subject to change.
      Also, Sky Broadband is exclusively available to SKY TV subscribers, They are practically giving it away as it is.

      Re: Update on Sky Broadband pricing changes

      I have Sky Talk and BB Max and I see the latest bill has an extra 5 on my broadband, is there an error in the system or is it time to move?

      Re: Update on Sky Broadband pricing changes

      Unfortunately there is no decent LLU alternative to Sky around here and certainly no O2/BE so I've had to go with Sky Talk Free to avoid the 5 p/m price increase. I almost never use my landline for making calls, in the rare event I do I'll try saynoto0870.com for 0870/0845 calls first and even if there is no number the increased cost will still be hugely outweighed by the 5 a month discount I figure.

      Re: Update on Sky Broadband pricing changes

      Got a letter from Sky today and it mentioned that there were 'Improvements to Sky Broadband Max'. It would appear that the speeds are going to be increased. Anyone heard by how much? Presumably there will be a corresponding price rise?

      I should imagine that the price would remain as it is (15/10 for loyal customers). It'd be a bit of a kick in the teeth to have two price rises don't you think?
      So did the letter just say that there will be improvements to Max, no mention of what they will be?
