GENERAL (APPLIES TO ALL SKY CONNECT ADVANTAGE PACKAGES): Prices exclude VAT at 20%. Available in Sky fibre areas only.

Call charges: Charges may apply to Sky Contact Centres if you’re not an existing Sky Connect, Sky talk or Sky mobile customer so please check your provider’s tariff guide. Switching: If you are switching from a provider on the Openreach network Sky will manage the transfer for you so you don’t have to contact your provider but if your existing services are provided by Virgin (or another provider not on the Openreach network), you will need to cancel your existing service once you have placed your order with Sky and notify your current provider of the date that your new service will be activated. Sky will not be liable if your existing provider fails to cancel your existing service. Installation: Self-installation: Self-installation of Sky Broadband Hub and Voice Hub required. For Advantage, professional installation available on request, cost £79 (for standard engineer installation).

Restrictions: Calls are made using VOIP technology via your broadband. In the event of a power failure or broadband outage it will not be possible to make voice calls to the emergency services (even if your package includes Sky’s 4G Backup Service) via this service so you should inform any service users that they will need to use their mobile phones (or other suitable alternative). You are responsible for ensuring that any security alarms or other critical business services are compatible with this service and will continue to work if there is a power or broadband outage. 4G Backup for Advantage Pro and Advantage Max: Voice over Internet Protocol calls will not work while you’re connected to the internet via 4G Backup, so you will not be able to make or receive calls, including calls to emergency services organisations, via the 4G Backup Service. Sky Connect does not give any speed guarantee for connections to the cellular network as speeds can vary according to factors such as the signal strength in your area and the number of devices you connect to the 4G Backup Router. VoiceEdge for Advantage Max: Option to add up to four voice lines. Number of required lines must be added at point of sale. Minimum of two voice lines. The first voice line is activated at no extra charge. For any additional lines, a £10 (plus VAT) activation fee will apply per activation. Security: We help with protection for your business by including a firewall on the Router and restricting access to phishing and malware-infected sites. We can’t guarantee these measures will detect any viruses, so we strongly recommend that you protect your business from cybercrime by using up-to-date antivirus software.
