Sky Broadband Changes - 22nd June

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Rumour has it, from 22nd June 2009 that there are to be some changes to Sky's current broadband offerings.





This news is unconfirmed.

Rumour has it that there are to be some changes to Sky's current broadband offerings.

Currently the options for Sky Broadband are,

Sky Base - 2gb Monthly usage
Sky Mid - 40gb Monthly usage
Sky Max - Unlimited Monthly usage

As from 22nd June, allegedly these will then be known as:

Sky Broadband Unlimited - 20Mbps Down/1.3Mbps up
Sky Broadband Everyday - 10Mbps Down/600Kbps up

No idea on Base, and apparently Everyday is a 10GB cap...

Although it is certainly not clear that the old packages will be removed, or if the newer ones would be for new customers as from 22nd June.

Updated 20:31:

The information you have got about the new Sky packages is correct. They are changing the Mid, Max and Connect packages.

Connect package is basically going ADSL2+, and I believe that it will soon offer upto 20Mb, like the Max package. Not sure about usage limits though.

Also, there may or may not be an additional package added, specifically for gamers.

I don't know if the changes are going to affect all existing Sky customers, but we are aware that some older customers are getting their lines regraded to the new upload speeds atm

More news as we get it.

If you're "upgraded" to ADSL2+, will you need new equipment from Sky?

No - Your router would be fine (the Sky one)

The changes started on 8th June and are for new and existing customers. BB Base is not being touched.

This is good news. I've been thinking of upgrading. I was also begining to wonder if something was happening to my line as my downstream speed when upto 2.2mbps from an average of 1.5mbps :-). However, it's now down to 1.6mbps :-(

i am currently on sky max
at the moment i am currently only getting around 6mb down just under 2miles from the exchange will i see much of a speed increase or is this just wishful thinking.
