Roll over your data and jump price tiers mid-contract
Sky has launched its Sky Mobile to complete quad-play line-up, since joining TV, broadband and home phone services company.
The news was not surprising, since Sky announced it will launch its own network in 2016 when it signed an agreement with O2 back in January 2015, but some interesting details.
Its three 12-month contract focusing on the data, with 1GB, 3GB and 5GB plans are priced at £ 10, £ 15 and £ 20 per month respectively.
It was only for the data though, the user is then asked to choose between either a pay-as-you-use calls and texts (10p per minute and 10p per text) or unlimited calls and texts for an extra £ 10 per month
Savings for Sky customers
There’s good news for Sky customers though, as you’ll get unlimited calls and texts for free – meaning you’ll just need to pay the monthly cost of data.
Any unused each month the data is not lost either. The excess is instead rolled into a ‘piggybank’, the which users can then call upon to top up allowance Reviews their (in 1GB increments) in future months if they’re running low.
This Data is stored for up to three years, meaning there’s no rush to get through the additional data is the following month.
For families, Sky Mobile Allows you to have up to five SIMs Sky tied to the same account. The account holder can then control web security settings for each SIM card – allowing parents to turn on safe surfing for kids – Also while controlling who gets an excess of data from the piggybank.
Mix it up
If you find you’re constantly under or over your using the data allowance, you can switch between plans – with Sky Mobile allowing you to move up and down its three tiers of data.
You can change a maximum of once a month, every month. A move up the tiers sees the additional data is applied instantly to your account, while a move down will take Affect at the end of the month.
For Reviews those currently not with Sky, the offering is less attractive. Take Sky’s 3GB of data is a deal and add in unlimited calls and texts and you’re looking at £ 25 per month.
Rival MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) giffgaff for example – Also the which uses O2’s network – offers 4GB of data, the 1,000 minutes and unlimited texts for just £ 15 per month, while £ 18 sees your minutes doubled and bumped to 6GB of data.
Non-Sky customers will still benefit from the data rollover piggybank and five SIMs per family offering – but there are better offer section to be had if you’re not already tied to Sky.
