    Default BSkyB launches TV, phone and broadband package

    BSkyB launches TV, phone and broadband package
    Monday, January 15th, 2007

    British Sky Broadcasting has today launched a new TV, telephone and broadband package under the slogan “Surf Speak See.” Users get an 8 Mbit/s broadband service plus free evening and weekend UK telephone calls for £26 a month, plus a one-off broadband activation fee of £20 and £11 per month to BT for line rental. Sky says this combination of products is only available to 50% of the UK po****tion at present, but this will 70% reach by the end of 2007.

    Seen as a rival to BT Group’s Vision Internet television product, the package includes Sky’s basic TV channels. Up to now, Sky’s broadband offering has only been available to existing subscribers to its TV service.

    We were surprised to note recently that Sky has been running TV commercials for its broadband service in which it claims to offer an “8 Megabyte [sic] ” service, rather than 8 Megabits per second. The same error seems to have crept into its website, where it refers to an “8 Mb download speed.” I hope that Sky will start using the correct terminology. It reminds me of the early days of the consumer PC in the UK, when on more than one occasion I saw computer magazines refer to Hard Disk storage space as “memory”. It’s hard enough educating the man and woman in the street to new technology, without misusing the terminology.
