Subscribers to Sky's broadband and home phone deals will have to wait another hour until they can enjoy off-peak evening calls, it has been revealed.

The broadband provider has informed its customers that, from the start of June, the off-peak period will begin at 19:00 BST – a move which sees it follow in the footsteps of both BT and TalkTalk.

According to, consumers could lose out on the move, as bills may increase by £450 a year if customers do not take the changes into account.

Steve Weller, communications expert for the website, described the move as "a real slap in the face" for many subscribers.

He added: "Companies are making this move to encourage more people to sign up to the all-you-can-eat 'Anytime' calling plans, but it's clear to us that the new times will not sit well with the majority of customers."

Sky recently revealed that 1.9 million of its customers are signed up to all three of its TV, broadband and phone services.
