Sky Broadband Charges Compared to Eir

Sky have 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. (November 2020)

Firstly – the Sky telephone and broadband service is nothing to to 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.

Comparing Broadband and Telephone Bundle Prices

Sky Unlimited Fibre broadband – with speeds averaging 75Mb  costs €42.50 a month for the first 12  months (€62.50 after that). This includes free anytime landline calls and works out at €560 in year one. (Price is for new customers.) Free landline calls to 20 international destinations included.

A similar bundle from Eir will cost €69.98 a month – reduced to €39.98 a month for the first year .  This works out at €529.75 in year one and also includes anytime calls  to UK landlines and mobiles and Eir Sport

The Eir bundle works out at €30 cheaper over the first year.  But the free calls to UK numbers on Eir could be worth a lot more to some people. You can switch to Eir on Switcher


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.

  1. Hi
    My mum is cocooning in Sligo and so for the winter months I am trying to get her hooked up to decent broadband and telly. I am in the North and finding it impossible to speak to a Sky person about if they can reinstate the old eircom landline to use. Does anyone have any experience with this please? They’re not answering via any of their social media accounts and I cannot ring the 0818 number from up here. Who knew trying to give new business would be such a challenge. I’d not bother except she is an existing customer at ‘home’ so is used to the system.
    Cheers, Roisin
