Sky customers could be treated to a much-needed free boost today

There’s a huge night of football ahead as England take on Scotland in the group stages of Euro 2020. Both teams will be desperate for the victory with England hoping to continue their winning streak and Scotland needing all three points to stay in the tournament. Hopefully, that means plenty of goals and that’s great news for Sky Mobile customers. The UK network has announced that it will be adding a whopping 1GB of data to accounts each time a goal is scored by either England, Scotland and Wales.

With England and Scotland facing off in tonight’s game it could be a bumper boost for anyone with Sky SIM in their phone.

This bonus data will be added to Sky’s Piggybank service which allows users to dip into extra internet access when they are running low.

Anyone wanting to take part in this promotion simply needs to register their details with Sky.


Speaking about the offer, Paul Sweeney, Managing Director of Sky Mobile. said: “After waiting for an entire year for this tournament to take place, we hope our free data boost for Sky Mobile customers can go some way in bringing fans together to cheer on football finally coming home.’’

According to Sky, this will be a much-needed boost for customers with research revealing that more than a third of Brits watch their favourite sports via their smartphone at work, with over a quarter viewing on the toilet or in a restaurant.

The study of 2,000 sport fans found 16 percent will slip out of work, use their annual leave or excuse themselves from a family dinner to make sure they catch every match moment of the Euros tournament.

The study also found that three fifths of Brits are watching more sport via their mobile phone than they were 12 months ago, with football the most popular sport to watch via mobile apps, followed by tennis, Formula One and cricket respectively.

It’s worth noting that watching just one hour of video on your phone will use around 30GB of data per month.
