      Well spotted and thanks for sharing.

      Hopefully it is true and that there are no stings in the tail.

      I am wondering if sky will reduce the price of the Sports pack as well, but there again it is an established product. BT Sport might well have some headline acts but what will the presentation be like? Will the quality actually be anything like what people have become used to with the existing channels or will it be trash?

      Re: Sky may drop the price of broadband products

      I am wondering when Sky will announce the prices now.

      Will it be Monday or Tuesday?

      The next thing is just how much will they all be priced at?

      Can't see much of a drop to me like especially fibre seen as that's new DSL maybe.

      This week might be a good time for you to sign up to SFU or SFUP deadman.

      I suspect that someone is Sky has seen a mass migration from Sky to BT Infinity and has decided that they can't have this, what with the share holders to keep happy.

      Hum tempting but if they dropped the unlimited to say 5 pound and then put the fibre 40/10 package to 10 pound a month that would tempt me allot.

      Sky's staff can get SFU for 10 per month. Any less and it would be less than what Sky pays BTO for their piece.

      Mid disappeared. As I said before mid customers were automatically upgraded to Unlimited and suffered a 2.50 price hike. It was base that became Everyday Lite (EL). Unlike EL I think base may have had a speed cap. If I remember correctly the download limit was 2GB/mnth for both products but base did not appear to be rigorously enforced.
