Sky Mobile reaches UK customers with first price increase in 5 years

Saturday, January 7, 2023 (7:41 am) – Score 2,808

Sky Mobile customers, a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) operated by O2 (VMO2) with more than 3 million subscribers, have started to notify their unsubscribed users (equivalent to around 1.3 million customers) to see their first price increase for 5 years on February 14, 2023.

According to our sources, the first emails and letters went out yesterday, and the rest are to follow in the next two weeks. Simply put, this change means that almost all customers without a contract will pay a surcharge 1€ extra per month from February 14, 2023. Such a surge will obviously be more likely to be felt by those with Sky Mobile’s cheaper plans.

We have tried to keep our prices as low as possible and this is our first price change in five years. The current economic climate has meant that we have had to review the pricing of some of our data plans. And remember, we don’t raise prices in the middle of your contract“Says the statement from Sky Mobile. Customers who are currently in the middle of their contract need not worry, but that will change once their current term ends and the increase becomes relevant to them as well.

The increase is independent of future price increases related to their Sky TV or Sky Broadband subscriptions, which are likely to come into effect sometime in April 2023.
