Have 24Mb Sky Broadband, they only give 1Mb (and cheating on ping test that gives 8 Mb), terrible service not recommended for anyone.
Snaresbrook Sky  
went with Sky Fibre Max to consolidate bills as we wanted the Sky Sports and Sky Atlantic TV channels. The new Sky Q Hub has the worst and most unreliable WiFi signal ever. Regularly cuts out and delivers incredibly slow speeds when in any other room than the one containing the router. Impossible to stream anything unless you're sitting right next the Q hub. Had both BT and Virgin media wireless routers in the past 3 years and they both performed far far better than this. Really surprising that something marketing as a premium product (Sky Q) uses such cheap hardware. Read up online about poor WiFi signal on the Sky Q Hub and you'll see that I'm not alone in complaining about this! Seriously Sky, the wireless on the Q hub is so bad it is making me never consider using Sky again - for anything! To make matters worse, the customer service staff were incredibly rude when I suggested using my own hardware as a modem/router - as if I'd done something wrong. In short, hugely disappointing move to Sky and I already can't wait to go back to BT or Virgin Media. If good WiFi signal around your property is important to do DO NOT sign up to broadband delivered to the Sky Q hub! Oh, and add to this that when you try to contact Sky to learn more about which 3rd party routers you could potentially use, you'll be shut down with ludicrous company policy stating 'Sky don't recommend 3rd party routers therefore if you want help for it you'll have to search online for it' which is a very abrupt and rude standpoint to take. My advice would be to stay well away from this company for Broadband services.

Haverhill Suffolk Sky  
Wired speed, no major issues. Wireless - not good. Was on a 38mbps package and barely got 15 down at the best of times right next to the Q router and lower than 1 at peak times! Constant packet loss playing games even when wired. Customer service is poor, they seem to only want to deal via Facebook messenger (and take forever to answer) or through text messaging! Would not recommend.

Gloucester Sky  
Terrible company and service. After cancelling my subscription I have been charged for 2 extra months.
It was almost impossible to communicate with a Sky representative and I am still waiting for my refund after 2 months and none is acknowledging me.
Do not sign up with them. That are a nightmare to deal with. London is plenty of better broadband companies.

Pathetic speed and reliability. They say its because we are using wifi but the that is the whole point of a wireless device surely. It looses connection when we are sitting in front of the hub and you have no chance in the other rooms.

Arranged with Sky to move from Virgin. Sky failed to install phone line and Broadband on date agreed and they have now walked away from any responsibility for sorting the issue. Sky uncontactable online and no help given on the phone. Avoid them like the plague!

UK Kent Sky  
Not great value at all, paying £65 a month for very basic t.v package (most can be watched on free view) and broadband that can only be used in the same room as the router. Would have expected better value for money from sky to be honest, customer support is not bad at all it doesn’t change the rubbish value for money or ridiculously rubbish broadband/connectivity. Will be changing to virgin as soon as the contract ends!

Welling Sky  
I cannot stress this enough; NEVER GET BROADBAND FROM SKY. Ever sincce my family purchased Broadband as part of a package deal with Sky Sports we have had to tolerate attrocious signal and pathetically frequent disconnects. Sky clearly do not know how to be an internet service provider, their wireless router barely reaches into the next room. Absolutely pathetic; we are looking to change ISPs as soon as humanely possible.

Essex Sky  
somehow sky broadband is slower than pre 2000's dial up. I have to wait over an hour for an online chat with them to make a complaint, not even surprised because they are probably using sky broadband aswell. I am supposed to have 30mbs but barely reach 5 on a good day. WASTE OF MONEY
Kent Sky  
This WiFi connection is THE WORST I’ve ever had, DO NOT get it I am saving you some money. Go with virgin.
Sittingbourne Sky  
A while ago I spent over 3 months with my Internet droping out 10 - 50 times a day. They never fixed it and after giving up it eventualy started working again. Now I have give them my notice to cancel and suprise they keep droping me again. They do this on purpose! They are the worse kind of people. They have you running round it circles while they play dumb. I will never return to sky again they don't care about there customers at all. Also they won't reduce my bill which is 70 pound for only standard package. They should be banished! Don't even deserve 1 star!

Stoke Sky  
We’ve been with Sky for a couple of years now, since we moved house as Virgin wasn’t available in our current house. The whole 2 or so years it’s been mediocre at best, we’ve told them several times and we eventually got upgraded to fibre at no extra cost. We’re now allegedly on their bestest fastest shiniest broadband they provide and it’s still terrible. I’m trying to watch a video on my phone at the moment (this is the reason I’ve decided to leave this review), I’m about 15 feet from the router and I can see it so there’s no obstructions blocking the signal, and it keeps freezing so it can buffer. My girlfriend has a computer based job and she quite often works from home, her laptop and computer are probably 5 or 6 feet away from the router and she doesn’t bother with the WiFi as she can’t rely on it, she just tethers off of her work phone instead, to me that speaks volumes about the quality of Sky’s service! We're moving house in the New Year and we will absolutely definitely 100% not ever be going back to Sky, Virgin was better in every way, the TV included! If we can’t get Virgin at our new place then we’ll just be having freeview and using another broadband provider. Avoid sky fibre in my opinion, it’s nowhere near as good as they make it out to be, in the advert they show getting signal in the garage, on the roof, in the garden etc, to get this coverage they must have at least 2 routers in each location! Sky TV is a rip off too! If I could leave zero stars or a negative number I would.

New Milton Sky  
I reported loss of my phone line and slow/intermittent broadband. There was a 30 minute queue to report by phone and the text message process was slow and clumsy. Clearly a computer-driven screening process because it asked questions when I'd already provided the information. No phone service for 5 days and no refund.

Paignton Sky  
Absolutely awful, save yourself a LOT of aggro and go elsewhere. Sky decided to cancel my phone line when I moved provider which means a) I have to pay £130 to have a new line put in, and b) it has been a difficult and time consuming job to sort it out. Have had a phone line for 30 years and never encountered this before and it seems quite malicious on Sky's behalf, for no good reason, I was never rude or abusive towards them. In hindsight I would not have moved to Sky and won't ever go back.

I am absolutely disgusted with the way i was spoken to today! My query was completely ignored whilst the man talked non stop about the new skyQ box i already said i did not want and was completely unrelated to my actual issue! And then when i said i was not happy to pay 65 pounds for someone to come and look at the satellite dish because i already pay a fortune per month, he began to shout at me and tell me i will have to pay it or it will not get fixed and i will still be charged for the services i cannot use! The situation was not resolved and i will be removing my custom from them ASAP! Appalling service.

very bad service, when we signed up no engineers came by to connect it and check everything was working properly and of course it wasn't. Can't watch youtube or netflix without it buffering endlessly. Just a useless service.TY programmes a waste of time watching, I pay £60 p.m. so I'm sure as hell not going to pay to upgrade.

Stoke on Trent Sky  
Been with sky for 18 months, was promised up to 17 mbs at best got 2.8 mbs I could not watch internet films or play my online games which I had forked out hundreds of pounds for. I rang them up to complain and they said I would have to pay extra for fibre.
When my contract ended they did not inform me that they would charge me £11.00 as the free broadband had expired, I rang them up to query this and was charged £5.00 for the phone call.I am now in the process of changing supplier.

Worst Internet ever slow doesn't even connect gotta be right nex to the router to use it dont bother wouldn't even recommend it absolutely crap connection
London Sky  
Sky used to be brilliant for broadband but they have gone downhill drastically.After being a valued customer for over 3 years I have finally bitten the bullet and left.For the past 12months my broadband connection was very limited and would stop working completely for a week at a time every month!When I would ring up for help I would be told I had to pay £65 upfront for an engineer visit,I would refuse and miraculously my internet would start working again the next day!Speed would be slow when it was working and it would be very unreliable.Please stay away from Sky for broadband as you will only regret it.

ROWLANDS GILL Sky  
I left Virgin as the bills had got too big as they do. I booked Sky on line and was given an instalation date for the TV and a later date for the Broadband. The TV engineer turned up, very nice chap got on and installed all and was very helpful. Then it was the Broadband time, the engineer turned up pretty much on time, again very nice chap, very helpful, but he could not get my Broadband working. He made a phone call and left telling us we would see another engineer later this afternoon who would fix this.
Well, 3 weeks later and still NO BROADBAND. I have phoned Sky and cancelled my contract with them on 2 seperate occassions, only to be told they can't cancel my contract as I have not been connected yet!!!! HOW DOES THAT WORK??? If they bill me tomorrow knowing this is basically cancelled, there will be more for me to add to this thread tomorrow!!!
So for my part. Sky are beyond USLESS!!!

Reliable connection and grap* speed that's pretty much the deal, internet speed is slow in general in UK but the problem is this companies are greedy, they overload the broadband by having to many customers, you may ask yourself why internet speed is 10 times slower in weekends.

If i could i would leave SKY -10 stars as they firstly they have the worst IVR system in the world, secondly i spoke to a great waste of time , i asked her a simple question regarding routers and i was nicely advised " you should go google the answer/solution" why do you then have a call center if they are advising clients to go and google solutions, what a bunch of wet slimy turds, sorry but not really sorry you guys should close your doors and sell frustration to clients maybe your ratings will be much better as you would be providing a proper service

Harrogate Sky  
Usually good but when there's a problem it takes days on end to get it sorted.

Several days ago our broadband slowed down to the point that it is pretty much non-existent now. According to our contract we should have up to 24MB speed, currently it is under 2. Uploads are also not working at all, the speed is 0.5MB at best. Called them and was told tests indicate there might be a problem outside our home but still they don't seem to think it should be sorted quickly. We have to wait for days now to get someone onsite so it can be checked.

Kingston upon Thames Sky  
I recently relocated from Darlington to Barnard Castle County Durham so I had to switch from Virgin Media to SKY (SKY fibre Max). Online SKY assured me that I would receive between 57 & 79 Mbs bb speed; I only receive an average of 40 Mbs! After complaining to SKY they sent out an 'Openreach' engineer to check my phone line-both inside the property & from the property to the BT cabinet & he stated that the phone line could not provide a bb speed any faster than 47 Mbs. As I stated previously, I was originally with Virgin Media for 20+ years & over the past two years I was assured of receiving 200 Mbs bb speed-yes, 200 Mbs & guess what, I received 200 Mbs bb speed!

Barnard Castle Sky  
I've had Sky fibre max for 2 years now and it's got progressively slower over that time.
My Q Hub always shows a 80/20 connection but speeds have dropped from 74mb/s down to 40mb/s.
No real explanation from Sky for the slow down (I'm connected via 1gb/s ethernet cable to router to a i7 6 core laptop).
Plus I'm paying £33 per month for somthing new customer can get for £27.
Best offer they have for existing customers is £30.
Sky show no interest in customers if they have problems to raise.

Macclesfield Sky  
My experience with Sky has been very good and I am pleased that I switched. I use a basic mobile phone - I am not a fan of mobile phones and what they can do to our brains, so I use it sparingly. I have unlimited landline phone calls instead which works well. I use my router with my computers.

Sky customer service is excellent. Their staff are nice. I had a dreadful time with TalkTalk who gaslighted me throughout my contract so it was a relief to switch to a company that provided me instantly with what I requested, without arguing and lying about a product that did not work and was not fit for purpose. I am referring to the Huawei router that TalkTalk uses which is unreliable rubbish that should have never been sold to customers and I am disgusted and appalled that TalkTalk get away with conning the public on a daily basis with the mind control tactics their time wasting customer service use on customers.

Sky broadband is fast and smooth and I am grateful to have a router that does the job.

My broadband has been consistently good, if it occasionally stops it comes back on again quickly. YouTube live streaming gets delays but not a major issue. I can watch YouTube videos without seeing the service dropping every 3 minutes (time and time again) as it did with TalkTalk and some days there was no service at all. The fast broadband router is great for those with arthritis or problems holding objects, it is light and flat and easy to handle. The gentleman I spoke to at Broadband.co.uk was efficient and very helpful.
