Sky Customer Cancellations – How To End Your Sky Subscription

There was a lot of controversy surrounding Sky’s cancellation policy. Many customers complained that Sky was not clear about how subscribers to their services could go about disabling packages. After an investigation by the newspaper The Daily Telegraph, Sky agreed to clarify its procedure.

Since, the procedure for cancelling Sky has become clear: Sky cancellations must be processed over the phone in order to verify requests. Contact the Sky customer services contact number to begin the procedure. After a representative has agreed to terminate your services you should wait for a clarification before cancelling direct debit payments.

There may be a Sky cancellation fee for terminating your services with the provider. The amount will depend on how much time is left in your contract, the period you have been billed for already and the specific things you have subscribed to. Call the Sky help number for more information.

More Information About Sky

Sky is the trading name of BSkyB, the largest pay-TV broadcaster in the UK. It was formed by a merger between Rupert Murdoch’s Sky Television and British Satellite Broadcasting in November 1990. The two companies were rivals up until that point but, as they were struggling for viewers, they decided to work together.

Sky’s current rivals are Virgin Media who are competing with them to have the best value set-top box and BT who have challenged Sky Sports’ monopoly of the sports subscription market.

Sky’s television packages have over ten million subscribers in the United Kingdom today. The business is headquartered in London with almost 23,000 employees working to keep services at a high standard. Nicholas Ferguson is currently serving as the chairman of the company while Jeremy Darroch has been the Sky Chief Executive Officer since 2007.

Sky, TalkTalk And CityFibre For Ultra-Fast Network In York

April 16th 2014

The city of York is about to receive the fastest broadband speed in the UK. Four telecoms groups, lead mostly by Sky and TalkTalk, have announced their plans to fit the city with an ultra-fast network. It will be capable of giving its users up to one gigabit per second. It will pose an enormous challenge to BT’s dominance in the market.

The network will be built by the Japanese electronics company Fujitsu and the British firm CityFibre. They plan to install the same network in other cities around the UK which have not yet been named. The first phase of the installation will target 20,000 homes and businesses, providing for 10% of York’s population.

BT’s networks currently provide around 80 megabits per second, so Sky and TalkTalk’s infrastructure would be remarkably better. The chief executive of TalkTalk, Dido Harding, said: “TalkTalk has a long history and proven track record of disrupting new markets, and this is the next step in that journey.

“We are excited to be working in partnership with Sky and CityFibre to build this new network that will offer significantly higher speeds at much better value than is currently available. This marks TalkTalk taking its first steps into investing in building infrastructure as part of our mission to make British homes and businesses better off.”

The York city council leader James Alexander said: “This announcement makes York the digital infrastructure capital of the UK. Gaining ultra-fast broadband across the city is a huge boost for our economy, providing significant new opportunities for businesses based here and better quality and value to our residents.”

Sky Broadband Traffic Doubled In 2013

January 10th 2014

Sky has revealed that their broadband usage doubled between Christmas 2012 and Christmas 2013.

The highest spike in their traffic for the year was at 10pm on Christmas Day. It is likely that this was due to  customers activating their new Christmas presents like smartphones, games consoles, tablets, eReaders, etc. It may also have been because of the flux of people taking to social media websites to share their thoughts and pictures from the day. That’s not the mention the families gathering around their TV sets to watch on-demand TV content through their broadband.

Sky’s Brand Director Lyssa McGowan said: “Gone are the days of one-Christmas-fits-all. With the increase in tablets and smartphones and the huge variety of entertainment on offer now, households and families are becoming techier, be it grandad on his iPad or his granddaughter on her Xbox 360. That’s why having a totally unlimited DSL or fibre broadband package has become so important for families”.

There are three types of Sky Broadband packages available to customers: Sky Broadband Unlimited, Sky Fibre Unlimited and Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro. Each package comes with various allowances.
