barrow in furness Sky  
Horrendous.
1. Service had multiple bugs and issues during usage period.

2. After ending my contract early SKY continued to ILLEGALLY bill me on a monthly basis having despite confirmation of cancellation via email.

Happy to take your money even if your no longer their customer.

Extremely disappointed and feel exploited.

Terrible experience,
DO NOT GET SKY BROADBAND

*unless your happy to pay bills 3 months after your cancellation.

UK Sky  
As a customer I had a problem with my broadband. It was slow and kept dropping.from the conversation with one of their agent I understood that the land line is really important for the quality of broadband. So we did troubleshooting and we found out the main problem was from the microfilter. They sent me two even for free filters.now 3months later my broadband is up and running perfectly fine.sky is really good company and of course if your broadband is free they will not give credit for the loss of service. Even the engineers are free.that is why I gave 10out of 10.

London Sky  
Fibre service is not as fast as advertised. Service is very inconsistent and sky routers notoriously bad for signal and interference.
Since moved to a different provider, supposedly the same spec as sky broadband, but way faster and never once disconnected yet.

My opinion, Sky are using their name to push an amateur and decidedly rubbish internet service.
Will not be back. Ever..

Changed from BT what a mistake.
Change was a painful process.
Actual performance of broadband is terrible it is slow and drops out, router has weaker signal than previous BT router, seriously thinking of changing again.
I work from home occaisionally and need a reliable service I definately dont get this from sky.

Morpeth, Northumberland Sky  
I have been with Sky for broadband and now fibre for a couple of years And apart from offers I can say it's not that good. I switched to Fibre as the broadband was very slow when it decided it wanted to work, not sure if that was a sales ploy by Sky to get me on fibre. Anyway I was looking around to leave Sky but was offered free line rental for twelve months so signed up again. Overall Fibre is fantastic, I have several problems most of which have been blamed on my local exchange. The main problem with Sky is their hardware, the router/hub is shocking. I am now waiting for delivery of what will be my third router in less than 12 months. The one thing you cannot fault with Sky is the customer service, I can only imagine the crap they get from customers who are not getting the service.

Cheshire Sky  
In Sep 2015 I changed from BT to SKy Broadband. after 2 months I started experiencing loss of service and every 3 days my connection was lost and I had to contact them to fix the problem. After all these months the problem kept going and the only thing they did was to give 2 vouchers of 5 pounds. Last week (4/5/16) they decided to send a technician to see what is actually going on and the guy changed the router, the wall socket and did some wiring. My broadband so far is more stable but when I called to request for compensation for all these months experiencing the problem they said that they do not give credit on the account and they will send me again a voucher which, according to them, costs actually more than the cost of my loss of service. this company sounds like a joke

First had broadband with them about 8 years ago. Our package includes line rental and anytime uk call package with normal broadband -cost about £36 pcm. It is ok if you only have a pc maybe laptops. Add in smartphones, games consoles tablets etc and its pretty slow and unreliable.

Edgware Sky  
Great service, having slow speeds so called up and spoke to a very friendly guy. Ran through some checks and all ok with the line so he went through changing the wireless channel with me and it's worked! Really quick and easy to resolve with lovely staff, after all things do go wrong but it's how it's dealt with that matters.

Manchester Sky  
I recently moved to UK and decided to go with SKY and feel it was the WORST descision I made. SKY does not take care of it's customer, they do not care whether the engineer is completing job or not, and even if you call they have only one answer - 'it's not our engineer, we can't do anything, you have to wait'. On the day of first appointment to get new connection, the engineer did not show up and I waited for 5 hours till I realized that there was no point in waiting. They did not bother to call to cancel the appointment. Next day, when I called them, they gave another appointment of next week. On the next appointment day, engineer arrived but he left after 2hrs without completing the job and then never came back. When I called SKY they didn't bother to listen and said your internet will be on till midnight. I took leave from work and my whole day was wasted again! even after this when I called them, they did not show any accountability and gave me another option -- 'LOOK FOR ANOTHER SERVICE PROVIDER THAN SKY'

The broadband speed in this area is actually very good, but the reliability of the sky connection is terrible. It keeps cutting out, only to resolve the issue about twenty minutes later. Then I manage to watch about three more minutes of the football before it cuts out again. Save yourself the headache and go for a more reliable provider.

Could not imagine a poorer broadband service. At best I see 4 mbps download..usually closer to 2. Speed is irrelevant however as the connection is not usually on long enough to get a measurement. Customer service is lovely and friendly, they just don't fix anything. Leaving for Virgin. Avoid Sky at all cost or do without.

Great Shelford Sky  
Having checked speed and found to be 0.24-0.39 Mbs DL (not fibre) expected up to 6mb!! contacted Sky, most helpful with all -- checked line OK, changed filters, re-booted, changed cord from router to master socket. Zilch!! On phone (mobile) for half hour plus going over the same things. At last managed to get an engineer appointment 2 weeks from now. Very helpful but pointless exercise. Unable to tell me what speed I should get for what I pay! Overall sympathize with customer service agent but after the test could not understand why loathe to send engineer. Seems to think something wrong with set up internally. However, same set up for last ten years and only discovered very slow speed when trying i-player and that kept buffering - has worked ok before. Sky are sending new filters and router cable. Fingers crossed or will be looking to switch but will give them a try.

Eastbourne Sky  
Sky joins Cadbury to make FUDGE! I raised a complaint that clearly showed a catalogue of issues that needed to be addressed. I had to chase for answers despite being promised a call back. They palmed me off with a £15 good will gesture and fudged every answer that needed answering. It left me feeling very unsatisfied and even makes me want to join TalkTalk, who are the worst of suppliers. My Sky TV has already been cancelled and I will very well be changing my service provider for Broadband come August. The customer service absolutely stinks on the Sky Fibre. A real shame, because I had good opinions about Sky for a long time.

Basingstoke Sky  
speed 5-10 times lower than promised

connection drops repeatedly

customers services - 30min wait for a "chat with Sky expert" (with connection that drops out) or 20 min with a "sky expert on the phone"

"everything seems to be fine, no faults registered" is the only thing I could hear.
"restart your router" the only advice I get.
"we will investigate this matter" - promises, promises...

resolution: AVOID AT ALL COSTS (unless free of charge)

Maidenhead Sky  
We're with Sky Fibre Optic. We're supposed to get 34mbps and we do on rare occasions. Most of the time, we get between 3mbps-12mbps. We've phoned Sky dozens of times and each time we're forced to endure tedious and time consuming troubleshooting checks. An engineer has come out 5 times, blaming the problem each time on static. Oddly, our speed always goes back up to 34mbps after they've been (and made the phone call) and then the speed drops again after a week. Once, someone at customer support admitted that we had been capped and only a manager could uncap us. Only a few more months of the 18 month contract to go.

I missed to pay my bill just for a day and they turned off my broadband . I paid it after a day and then i had to call hundred of times to customer service just to get the internet back, i am really disappointed with their customer service. I didn't have my broadband turned on for a days even after paid my bill, because they are not interested in customer queries and the call centre is obsuletly unhelpful. I have had really bad experience with sky.

I have been with Sky around 3 years ( when they took over o2) and find them very good. I get though in a couple of minutes to a friendly uk call center and they always have managed to solve any problems I have had ( mostly speed- I probably expect too much but I do get aroun 39mbs). The internet does drop out now and again ( maybe every couple of months ) but only for seconds or sometimes minutes. When the router went wrong they sent a new one straight away. I would not go to another ISP based on the reviews of some of them

Totally appalling. Very slow Internet, and after doing a home move with them my billing was changed without being informed at the time and now I am wanting to leave due to misleading information and they will charge me to end my contract. For anyone looking at getting sky think first and see if you can get a better deal somewhere else. Sky really is not worth what you pay

avoid at all costs!
speed much slower than promised (4 times!)
connection drops all the time
never able to contact customer services (always busy).
When I finally contacted - all I heard was "you did not let us know when there was a fault".
Is there a some kind of regulator body that can launch an inspection of how they deliver what they promise (and revoke their licence if there is enough grounds)? I am sure it won't come to that, but they clearly do not care for customers, so might care about a regulator.

Berkshire Sky  
Absolute garbage. 'You will get 7mbps download' which is rubbish anyway but to make it worse we only get 0.3-2 download and 0.6-0.7 upload! 'We won't slow you down at peak times' every night after 20:00 it drops to nothing. When i am home alone it is semi-decent but when my family is recording something on the tv, or watching something on the computer, it cuts down to 20% ish. We pay £100 a month but we get terrible speeds.

12 o clock at night and still too slow two stream a film, the worst internet provider ever stay well away
Sky  
Absolute trash of a service. Opted for the 40mb/s optic fibre plan and for the past year or so, I have NOT even reached close to the advertised speed. To add further insult to the injury, the speeds I am getting is 2-5 mb/s and fluctuates and changes more often than Donald Trump changes his mind. The customer service does not help at all. They simply deny any mishaps on their side saying the connection seems stable on their side. Stable my arse. DO NOT GO WITH SKY! Easily the most regretful decision of my life.

couldn't find a worse broadband than this, i hooked some tin foil up to a potato and had faster download speed, get your act together sky.
never mind that Sky  
Avoid Sky internet at all costs.. We pay £100 a month for the package and get terrible internet. It cuts out all the time, we have had engineers out, new routers, new filters, changed internet channels regularly and numerous phone calls. We shall be leaving Sky with their unreliable,useless internet

Somerset Sky  
This is by far the worst internet and cable tv provider I have ever had the misfortune of using in the last 8 years. Our internet stops working on average once every two weeks, it then takes them 2-3 days to come round and determine the fault is not with our system (it NEVER is) and then a further 4-5 days to get the fault fixed (someone unplugging a connection somewhere in the street). It is beyond annoying and completely useless. As soon as we have time to research a better provider, we are switching. Oh wait - can't do that either, since the internet is down again.
