Seeing as Sky have a finger in almost every other pie on the communications front do you see Sky Mobile as a viable posibility?

They could add it into their bundles to make it a more attractive proposition, or offer BB discounts like other providers do. What do you reckon,would be interested in such a proposition?

Seems very plausible to me.

Very possible specially as both virgin media and BT are in the moblie phone industry. Obviously it will only be a mvno as they have no spectrum.

Been a Vodafone loyalist for about 6 years but if it happened I could potentially see myself switching. However I currently get a discount with VF due to where I work so it'd have to be very appealing

This would be so good, I'm impressed with Virgin Media mobile tariffs. I wonder why Sky mobile hasn't surfaced yet?

More competition is always good also with BT going back into the mobile business soon I think sky will want to get into the mobile market too.

Didn't this get explored a few years ago (in association with Vodafone, iirc) and was chucked out?

I've never understood why they don't. You'd have thought they'd have has a virtual network years ago.

I have it on good authority that this is something being actively explored. I believe the subject maybe brought up at the next quarterly earnings report. The openly discussed plans of BT has kind of spurred them on apparently. Sky are looking for more reasons to diversify their portfolio and thus keep customers loyal.

TalkTalk already have mobile contracts with the latest phones, so I can't see why others providers can offer this service.

I'm sure Sky had a deal with Vodafone in the past that offered Sky customers a special rate. I remember Sky always used to push Vodafone at every opportunity.

The question is, which network would they use? Talktalk and Talk Mobile(CPW) both use Vodafone, BT will be using o2 if I remember rightly, and of course Virgin use T-Mobile/EE.

Sounds like Vodaphone have as much need for a partnership as Sky do.

Good chance Sky could launch a 4G based tariff.

Your impressed with a service which constantly reduces its Data Allowance and Fair Use policies to its customers by anything upto 65% at a time?. Wow.

(So called 'unlimited' service had its 10gb FUP reduced to 3.5gb in March and to be reduced yet again in September when its replaced by a capped 1gb / 3gb tariff - all in less than 12 months)
