Sky Fibre Max is their top VDSL2 package, and is £43.99 once you add the 1st March line rental changes.

Fibre Pro was renamed to Fibre Max some time ago when the static IP was dropped and product went dynamic IP (if brain is remembering correctly)

Officially Fibre Pro was replaced by Fibre Max but it appears to have made a comeback and being offered to those who can't get Fibre Max because of Sky's ridiculously high guaranteed minimum speed requirement for the Max product. Of course it costs more than Max for what is essentially the same product but I believe you can still get a static IP address with Pro.

The have been several posts on the Sky Community Forums about this.

yeah something has changed in recent days.

In january sky were refusing any retention deals on pro as one would expect with a product been retired, then suddenly a discount deal is put back on the computers and now a new customer is offered pro, so looks like at least for now pro may have been brought out of retirement.
