Sky keep customers connected
COVID-19: Our members taking responsible business action
We fully appreciate that these are challenging times for you and your business. Serving our customers and doing what we can to support you is very important to us and we will continue to closely monitor the situation as it developsSimon Raggett, managing director of Sky Business
The need for connectivity whether for financial or social reasons has never been greater. Working from home, keeping in touch with loved ones, or quite simply warding off boredom during isolation would be near impossible without companies like Sky keeping us all connected.
Meeting the surge in demand
Sky is making sure they can handle the surge in demand for broadband by testing, monitoring and improving their network day and night. They’ve made calls to UK landlines free for their customers until the end of April and have added a 10GB data boost to make sure customers can stay in touch and get the information they need when they need it.
It’s not all about work though. Isolation is tough for everyone and entertainment at home when we’re not working will be a huge part of daily life for adults and children alike. Because going out to the cinema may not be possible for a while, Sky is bringing the cinema to their customers, by making a range of movies available in their homes, on the same day as the global premieres.
No charge for Sky Sports
Many pubs and venues across the UK who rely on showing live sport in a social environment to attract customers and revenue are facing challenging times. Sky has given them one less thing to worry about by not charging their business customers for their Sky Sports service until a live sports schedule returns.
Simon Raggett, managing director of Sky Business, said: “We fully appreciate that these are challenging times for you and your business. Serving our customers and doing what we can to support you is very important to us and we will continue to closely monitor the situation as it develops.”
