Sky confirms UK Online closure

UK Offline

Boost IT visibility and business value

Sky has confirmed it will completely shut down UK Online, its second string ISP brand, in January.

The expected move follows the sale of Easynet, which originally bought UK Online to sell consumer access via its well-regarded network.

A Sky spokesman said: "Since 2005 Sky has operated two residential broadband services, Sky Broadband and UK Online. To better serve customers now and into the future we are going to focus all our efforts on Sky Broadband, which allows us to offer higher quality, better value services.

"To ensure that UK Online customers enjoy uninterrupted broadband access, we are contacting them in plenty of time to provide clear advice on their options for finding a new broadband provider."

UK Online's customers will be offered the chance to join Sky broadband, but will need to archive their UK Online email accounts, which will otherwise be deleted. Details are available here. ®
