Sky Fibre looks pretty good on paper, but getting it right now is a bit of a lottery. The deal is pretty sweet, 40Mb (ish) download speeds, totally unlimited and unshaped, £20 a month – plus £12.25 Line Rental. So £32.25 per month! The downside is that the upload speed is 2Mb – BT Infinity is around 10Mb upload, but BT Infinity is £40.60 a month and has traffic shaping at peak times. Talk Talk also do an unlimited product similar to Sky (40Mb down / 2Mb up) it’s £10 a month, plus £14.50 a month (to make it unlimited), and line rental of £14.50 per month. So £39.00 all in. Virgin are offering 60Mb Fibre for £18.50 a month with £13.90 line rental, so £32.40 a month. I’m not sure on Virgin’s traffic shaping policy (anyone know?)
Put this altogether, Sky’s offering is fairly competitive – (although Virgin are comparable!)
But getting fibre is a bit harder than it is with Talk Talk, BT and Virgin. It’s not officially launched yet you see, but Sky have been rolling it out to trial users since February. To get on the trial you have to fill out this form..
