      Sky offers a free wireless booster as well as half price broadband

      thinkbroadband :: Sky offers a free wireless booster as well as half price broadband
      Sky after a week or two with minimal offers on its broadband services has returned with a range of half price broadband deals and interestingly a Sky Wireless Booster.

      Wireless extenders are not new and work by picking up an existing wireless signal and repeating it, making them ideal to push your Internet access into that couple of rooms where it is intermittent or not available. For those looking to improve wireless coverage a great many devices are available but the TP Link TL-WA750RE looks a cheap option, with the option of working as a wireless Ethernet bridge i.e. connect the Ethernet port on a smart TV to your wireless connection.

      All the broadband services require voice line rental via Sky at 15.40 a month.


      • Unlimited Sky Broadband (if buying TV, or existing TV customer) 3.75/month for the first 12 months. 12 month contract and after 12 months price is 7.50 per month. Wireless extender can be claimed for orders activated before 30th January 2014.
      • Unlimited Sky Broadband (non TV customers) 5/month for the first 12 months. 12 month contract and after 12 months price is 10 per month. Wireless extender can be claimed for orders activated before 30th January 2014. Also qualify for a 25 M&S voucher.
      • Unlimited Sky Fibre Broadband (up to 38 Mbps product) 10/month for the first 6 months. 12 month contract and after six months price is 20 per month. Wireless extender can be claimed for orders activated before 30th January 2014. Also if not taking a TV package you qualify for a 25 M&S voucher.


      An interesting point is that the small print on the Sky website suggests that the booster will be available to existing customers after 27th December, no information on price or if it may be a free option.

      UPDATE: Just a few minutes after publishing the Sky press release for the new hub appeared and from 26th December until 30th January 2014 both existing and new Sky customers will be able to order the booster for free online via the mysky portal for a limited time period. Technically the booster offers 802.11 wireless n, 2 x 2 Mimo, 144Mbps throughput (in plain English this means best case of around 50 Mbps in either direction) and a WPS push button.

      Just to confirm that existing customers will have to wait until 27 December to get their orders in as I went through the process with this as was greeted with the message that as a Sky Broadband customer I would have to wait until 27 December.

      New customer offer should be available now, technically, although it will take ~2 weeks for them to go active.

      The existing customer offer starts on 27th December. The original briefing was everyone starts 20th, then it was changed to existing customers from 26th, then it was further updated to existing customers from 27th December - UK call centres are shut 25th and 26th so this might be why it was amended further.
