Sky Broadband details plan for annual price hike

Sky Broadband customers could see their bill increase by somewhere in the region of £1 to £2 per month, it has been revealed.

Information posted on the firm’s website indicates that some Sky Broadband tariffs will be subject to an annual price hike on April 1, in keeping with the last increase that occurred on March 1, 2017 – which saw tariffs up by £1.59 per month.

We’ll have to wait until next week to find out how much by how much Sky Broadband is raising its prices, but specialist outlet ISP Review predicts customers could see an average increase of around £1 to £2 per month on a standard plan.

It’s not uncommon for service providers to introduce mid-contract price hikes, though they aren’t permitted by regulator Ofcom – so disapproving customers should be able to use the increase as an excuse to terminate their contract.

One useful tip ISP Review provided is that those unwilling to shell out the additional cash should first contact Sky Broadband to express their concerns before requesting a cancellation, as the operator could cut them a fantastic deal.

Time to dig out your haggling hat.
