Sky launches £10 a month fibre optic broadband package

Sky is making superfast broadband more affordable with a new £10 a month package. Customers will be able to receive speeds up to 38Mb with the 'Fibre broadband' service, which will be subject to a 25GB monthly data cap.

The provider is hoping the deal will appeal to internet usersthat have not yet tried fibre broadband. Because of the 25GB amonth cap it won't appeal to some users, as video services likeNetflix will eat that data fast. However, it will be ideal for fastbrowsing, email and some downloading.

Sky already offers truly unlimited Sky Fibre Unlimited andUnlimited Pro services to customers who want to be able to streamcontent in HD and download large files. The same line rental feeswill apply for the new service, so there'll be a £16.40 monthlycharge and possibly a one-off connection fee.

Sky Broadband Director, Lyssa McGowan said: "We're alwayslooking to give customers even more reasons to choose Sky. SkyFibre means we can now offer superfast speeds for just £10 a month- the lowest standard price in the UK. It's perfect for those whowant to try fibre for the first time."

The deal arrives a day after Ofcom revealed that a 10Mbpsconnection should be the base requirement for families usingmultiple devices. Sky's basic fibre service will now provide speedsas much as four times faster than that at a low price.

New Sky Fibre customers will also get access to the SkyBroadband Shield free of charge. This shield acts as an onlinesafeguard, blocking certain sites and flagging malicioussoftware.
