Sky has been offering telephone and broadband services in Ireland for a good few years now. We have checked out the current pricing and how it now compares to Eir. (June 2023)
Firstly – the Sky telephone and broadband service is nothing to do with their satellite dishes – it is provided down the very same phone lines used by the likes of Eir, Pure Telecom or Vodafone . You don’t need to have Sky TV or a satellite dish to use their telephone and broadband.

Just be careful when comparing prices – don’t just look at the monthly price because some providers have short introductory discounts Look at the total price over a year. Most broadband and phone contracts are for 12 months – so you can always look at switching again after a year if there are better deals on offer.
