Sky Broadband Social Tariff

Sky Broadband Basics could be for you if you’re struggling to pay your Sky Broadband bills, but want to stay connected.

Are you eligible?

You (the Sky account holder) need to be claiming Universal Credit or Pension Credit and be named on the Universal or Pension Credit monthly statement to qualify for Sky Broadband Basics. We’ll ask you for your National Insurance number so than we can check you’re eligible - have it to hand when you get in touch.

It is only available to customers who already have Sky Broadband with us, but you’ll need to get in touch to move to Sky Broadband Basics.

What’s included

Sky Broadband Basics costs £20 a month for 18 months. It includes:

  • Sky Broadband Superfast 35 with an average download speed of 36Mb/s.
    • Or if fibre isn’t available where you live, Sky Broadband Essential Plus with average download speeds of 11Mb/s.
  • Sky Pay As You Talk. Only pay for the calls that you make.

It comes with a new 18-month contract, but if you need to leave us before it ends, we won’t charge you any early termination fees on your Sky Broadband.

After 18-months the price will go back to the standard rate – we’ll tell you what this will be when you get in touch to take Sky Broadband Basics. You’ll also get an email to let you know when the price is coming to an end, and you can get in touch to talk about the options available.
