      Sky sit on it for a while and THIS is what they come up with?

      Wow, Sky really are either incredibly arrogant or incredibly incompetent.

      I'll certainly be switching to either BT for the sports or PlusNet for the lowest cost when my time comes. No point whatsoever staying with Sky.

      Re: Sky offers free broadband as battle with BT intensifies

      I guess that someone decided to limit the price change to just compete directly with the BT Sports package & TalkTalk's recent TV/Broadband price changes.

      Sad really as they could have launched a far better rebut IMHO.

      Also as BT Infinity is by default an 80/20 product, Sky's offerings are pretty poor as the offers don't include SFUP, which remains an expensive product.

      Just cancelled my TV and according to PlusNet my (BT) phone number can be transferred so all is go (in all senses of the phrase!).

      Re: Sky offers free broadband as battle with BT intensifies

      Oh dear. I've just seen a new advert from Sky...


      ...for Sky Fibre.

      Got to admit it is a bit of a dig at BT.

      "and it is totally unlimited too"

      Re: Sky offers free broadband as battle with BT intensifies

      Personally, I think the response from Sky is disappointing and it would seem from the responses I have read on here and elsewhere that I'm not alone in that view.

      In my opinion, the lack of fibre product/price revamp is a missed opportunity to seize some market share and may well prove to be a mis-step in the longer term.
