Sky has announced they will be soft-launching its new fibre broadband service after talks were happening for months.

Prior to the public announcement, the company offered its own branded broadband from a small group of existing satellite TV customers; however, it was not available to customers of their TV streaming services.

A wider rollout will happen in the coming months allowing satellite TV customers to buy gigabit broadband at a discount of twenty dollars compared to the usual price.

“Customers, who must have a pay TV account and commit to a 12-month contract pay $79 a month for an uncapped 1Gbps plan,” the company wrote in a statement to thisquality.

“This compares with around $100 for similar plans from the big service providers.”

While testing and running trials for the company, customers said that they saw download speeds of around 900mbps and an upload of 400mbps.
