Sky has upped the standard price of its unlimited ADSL broadband product from £7.50 to £10/month.
The Sky Broadband Unlimited service promises top download speeds of 17Mbps, unlimited downloads and no traffic shaping. A Sky Hub wireless router is also thrown in for free, despite a £6.95 charge for postage.
Line rental is currently charged at £16.40/month and all Sky Broadband Unlimited contracts are 12 months long.
The price change only affects new customers. If you’d signed up for Sky Unlimited Broadband a couple of days ago you’ll be paying the old price until your contract ends. Standard prices for the superfast Sky Fibre and Sky Fibre Unlimited packages remain at £10 and £20/month respectively, plus line rental.
To soften the blow, Sky is currently flogging its unlimited ADSL product to new customers for £5/month for the first 12 months – so you’d essentially be paying £21.40/month if you signed up for this today.
There’s also a broadband and TV bundle going too, which will see you get the Family Bundle and Sky Broadband Unlimited for £30/month for a year plus £16.40/month for line rental.
Normally, the Family Bundle (£36/month) plus Unlimited Broadband would set you back £46/month plus line rental, so this represents an overall saving of £192.
The Family Bundle gives you access to over 300 boxsets, 50 HD channels and access to Sky 3D content, which is now an on-demand only service.
