Sky has announced that its mobile customers can now share their spare data with others who may need it. Sky Mobile customers only need to add a free Sky Mobile SIM to their account which they can then share with friends or family. The gift SIM can be topped up using spare Piggybank data.
With more people staying home and using their Wi-Fi connections, they’re building up more of their data than usual and accumulating an average 69GB in their Piggybank. To help customers use this data, Sky Mobile is letting them share it. The new gift SIMs will be free for 12 months but afterwards, the company will begin charging £5 per month to use them or customers can cancel.
Commenting on the offer, which is only available until February 25, Managing Director of Sky Mobile Paul Sweeney said:
“We know lots of people have rolled over spare data over the past year so we’re making it possible for them to share it with someone who really needs it. Whether that’s giving data to a grandparent to stay connected or to help others who are home schooling, we hope this free SIM will go some way in providing a much-needed data boost.”
To take advantage of the offer, head to sky.com/sharemysparedata and add a free SIM to your basket. When it arrives, follow the instructions on the packet to activate it. Afterward, you can use the My Sky App to add data from your Sky Piggybank to the new SIM which friends and family can take advantage of.
