Sky axe slow fibre broadband, give customers free upgrades

In a controversial new move, Sky have completely removed their ‘Sky Fibre Unlimited’ package offerings for both new and existing customers.

‘Fibre Unlimited’ was Sky’s affordable option for fibre broadband. In exchange for a cheaper subscription, Sky limited the standard 63 Mbps speed of fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) broadband to 36 Mbps. This means that customers could benefit from the significantly increased stability and speed over Sky’s ADSL ‘Broadband Unlimited’, without going out of pocket for the full 63 Mbps connection.

Sky now only offers two connection speeds, each leagues apart from each other – 11 Mbps ADSL (‘Broadband Unlimited’), or 63 Mbps FTTC (‘Fibre Max’).

The good news is that Sky have further discounted the monthly cost of Fibre Max, inching it closer to the cost of their defunct 36 Mbps package.
