Sky has announced the launch of‘Sky Connect, a new entrant in the UK B2B telecoms market focused on partnering with small businesses to provide them with a better broadband experience.
Sky’s entrance to the business broadband market follows its success in residential broadband. With over 6 million customers, Sky Broadband is the second largest residential provider in the UK, and over the past ten years Sky Broadband has, on average, received fewer complaints to Ofcom than anyone else.
Sky Connect plans to bring this best-in-class service to small businesses, including professional installation, backed by a customer charter featuring a 30-day money back guarantee, simplified billing, no in-contract price rises, and no hassle cancellation fees. Sky Connect will provide superfast broadband with built-in malware & phishing protection; VoiceEdge – a modern digital voice service with 24 call management features, and Connection Pro – which provides business-grade 4G back-up, and much more.
Package prices start from £39.
Stephen van Rooyen, EVP & CEO, UK & Europe, Sky, said: “Covid-19 has had a huge impact on small British businesses, with many moving online to survive. We’re launching Sky Connect now, and plan to create up to a thousand new jobs across the UK, because we know British businesses will come out fighting and we want to be there to help. Small businesses are the growth engine of our economy and we believe they deserve better – better products and technology; clearer contracts, and exceptional customer service.”
The launch of Sky Connect has already led to the creation of 200 new jobs, including over 100 in its Leeds contact & operations centre, and will lead to the creation of up to 1000 more in sales, service and in head-office over the next few years.
