Sky Mobile offers three competitive SIM-only price plans.
The data-only deals start at £10 a month for 1GB. For an extra £5 extra per month, this goes up to 3GB of data. Heavier users can pay £20 a month for 5GB.
Sky TV customers will also get unlimited calls and texts thrown in for free, while non-Sky TV customers can pay £10 extra a month for unlimited minutes and texts.
Alternatively, non-Sky TV customers who don’t make many calls or send many texts can go for a pay-as-you-use option, at 10p a text and 10p a minute.
This benefits consumers who prefer to use alternative calling and messaging services, such as Whatsapp and Wi-Fi calling.
