      The offer is 12 months half price bb unlimited OR 6 months half price fibre.
      Don't know how someone would have got 12 months on fibre.
      It's a re-contracting offer and depends on the "mailshot" being on the account. Somewhat confusingly it shows as "ESPN Recontracting" on the accounts.

      Re: Sky may drop the price of broadband products

      I've just signed up to get our unlimited bb "upgraded" to fibre. I'm just a bit concerned that we will be in a 12 month contact @ 20/month. Does anyone know what happens if Sky do reduce the price? Will we see a reduction, or would they expect us to continue paying 20? I just called them to ask, and they said they didn't know, which kind of implies to me that we wouldn't see a reduction.

      I'd call back and get them to check you don't have the above "Mailshot" on your account. As long as it isn't active they can usually still apply the offer. Worst case scenario if you have the mailshot and they cannot apply it then they can cancel the upgrade and reprocess it using the mailshot.
      Did you pay the activation fee?
      In answer to your question, if they cut the price then yours would get cut too. If they keep the same price but do a reduction as an offer then you probably wouldn't, it depends how they would do it.

      Thanks - yes, I paid an activation fee, and they are due to install next Friday. I'm not sure whether to cancel and see what happens with pricing, but will probably wait until they've done their upgrades and call on Monday to see what they can do.

      Re: Sky may drop the price of broadband products

      Ok, these offers attract new people and with a 110 reduction SFU looks a little more tempting now for many.

      However there is still nothing for a general price reduction.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms
