Sky Gives Away Broadband In Riposte To Bt

Recommended Posts

http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2013/jun/14/sky-broadband-sports-bt

Sky has moved to defend its sports broadcasting empire by slashing broadband prices, its first salvo in the pay TV price war that began last month with the launch of BT Sport.

BT's decision to give away live Premier League football coverage to all broadband customers knocked millions of the stock market values of rivals TalkTalk and BSkyB in May. On Friday Sky retaliated, by giving broadband away for free to customers who subscribe to its sports channels.

Both new and existing Sky Sports subscribers will be offered free unlimited internet connections, with no monthly download caps or extra charges for high data use, if they switch away from BT. Those who opt for a TV package without sports will get the service for half the regular price of £7.50.

Sky calculating that those without Sky Sports might upgrade to get the free broadband?

ADSL is dead, the future is fibre optic especially if copper cable thefts keep happening.

Not sure how Talk Talk can respond in this type of market.

How many amps can you get down a 6 core 0.5mm cable? Or fibre optic? :lol:

I'm on fibre optic. No competition there. Its all owned by Virgin Media (ex NTL). :blink:

The only credible competition is 3G/4G which is far faster than ADSL where I live, and no prospect of Infinity (FTTC) at all.
