    My broadband has jumped from £25 to £31.50/month in a year, way above inflation. They are profiteering...the whole sector stinks.

    Sky. What a rip off. Wish I'd never cancelled Virgin Media.
    Not only is the broadband inferior, it's very slow, constantly failing, on and off nearly every day, at any time, and drives me mad.
    I moved to an area where the signal wasn't as good as my last address, less than half. I expected the price to drop, it didn't, I asked they said no. WHY???
    I understand that it is not your fault I moved.
    I don't understand why it hasn't dropped in price, because it isn't my fault you can't even supply the lack lustre broadband you provided before.
    My internet is now around 26 - 32 mbps, making it slower than my mobile phone powered by 3 mobile Internet.
    My package was renamed to the 35 mbps package, without my permission, I am paying for the 70 mbps package, this is what should be showing on my bill, nothing else.
    The tv signal is also terrible. If I record anything, watch anything live it drifts in and out of signal, pixilated picture. Ruins my programme's.
    They even increased my package price this month. An absolute liberty.
    I have to put up with this until November. Then the ordeal will be over.

    I have been with Sky for 12 years for broadband and tv, but have just changed providers. Loyalty means nothing. Failed to notify me my contract was coming to an end, then increased my bill significantly. Phoned to complain and told the best new price on a new contract would be £20 more than previously for the exact same package. Phoned BT who offered a far better price. Phoned back to cancel Sky and was informed I had not been offered the best deal. They also informed me BT would increase their price come April by 14% but the price Sky were quoting me would the same from April onwards. They offered a faster line speed. On arrival of a BT Engineer (who I had no idea was coming, Sky only notified me of their engineer appointment) I turned him away after him informing me he wanted to drill a two inch hole to anchor his ladder to run a new line in. I wasnt happy to do so as I have recently had the whole house rendered at a large cost. I phone Sky to cancel the line upgrade and remain on my existing speed. I was told it would be 48 hours before a new deal could be offered and theyd be back in touch. Low and behold, no one did. I contacted Sky again, to be offered a 'deal' on my current slower speed, at a greater cost to the faster speed. Also was informed my bill had infact increased in April and I had been incorrectly informed that it would. I was then told the £10 admin fee would be cancelled for the broadband as I no longer accepted the package. Low and behold, that was another lie and apparently it can not be removed. Back and fore for almost a month, with refusal to offer me a fair deal, especially with the deals on offer to new customers, I decided as I was within the cooling off period, to cancel the whole lot and go elsewhere.
    Rarely experience issues with the broadband, but once out of contract they will pull your pants down and continuously lie to try and keep you as a customer

    Sky broadband raising prices after 6 months of contract by £4 per month! It’s not nearly 20% up! Just like that. Will never sign up with them again. They do whatever they want!

    Terrible experience. Been trying to speak to a manager/have an issue resolved since November (it is now march)! So far no department seems able to help/to have a manager.
    Used to be really good customer service/help available if needed.
    The call centre bounces you from department to department (put on hold then through security questions every time). Either get told a manager will call back(which they don't) or there is no manager available and they will transfer me to a different department. Usually sales or cancellations- also with no managers.
    Cancellations would be fine if I hadn't been told that if I cancel before speaking to someone they will not be able to access my account and therefore can not look into the extra money that has been (and is still being) taken monthly!
    Speeds are good when it doesn't drop (which is pretty constant)
    Currently been on hold this time for over half an hour.

    Do not do business with this company! Scammers! I have been a Sky customer for 6 months. The contract is for 18 months. 26£ per month for broadband with an option to increase the price by sky after 12 months by a maximum of 10% = 2.6£. After six months they increase the price by £4 to £30 per month.... I thought it was a mistake... sky explanation: global situation, other companies increase by more... (other companies in my region: VODAFONE £25/month and NOW £24/month VIRGIN £26.5 - contracts guaranteed price for 12 months and faster data transfer!!! Disgusting how sky treats customers!!!

    Awful. We have a full-fibre connection but made the mistake of using sky for this. regular drop outs (caused by either back-end issues or the terrible sky router which crashes regularly). Sky could not solve the issue and indeed denied that they happened. We swapped to Bt on EXACTLY teh same line and it's now totally stable without any issues. BT customer service is also a LOT better having UK-based staff in Newcastle that you can actually talk to.

    Made phone call to sky today on behalf of my friend as his contact was nearing its end, during the call the account holder stated that the bill was going to be high as he is on UC (increases) just at this my friend said I may have to go elsewhere in a very polite manner) the reply was simple " you have to return the box,leads and remote" WOW you would realy think they would want to keep long term existing customers and who have never failed once on their bills, for this I would never reccomend any 1 going to join sky.

    I do not understand why they do not give offers to existing customers.
    Contacted customer service and "Akshay" then increased the price of the bill to more than what we are currently paying. CANCELLED CONTRACT

    DO NOT USE - Fixed contract, 2 months in, and still they can put the price up after advertising a fixed term price?!? How is this legal? And they aren't signed up to the ombudsman so good luck challenging them. I'd have to buy my way out and probably pay all sorts of fees to change anything. Even if I did want to change I then have to sit on the phone for an hour to talk to someone, sort out ANOTHER contract with someone else. Basically add 20% to the price of any deal when choosing them as they can and will up the price.

    I wouldn't even bother it's the worst Internet I've every experienced. I think the old dial up would be quicker. The Internet drops in and out even with a lan connection. They have been out to upgrade the router and it made no different. Complete pile of sh#t. Never get the average speed they promise and then they have the cheek to up there prices. Ducking jog on sky. I wouldn't even recommend them or wish them on my worst enemy. AVOID AT ALL COST

    If I could put 0 I would you are a mo ey grabbingfraudulent company that think you can Intemidate your customers into paying you late payment fees for contracts you automatically renew by not giving any access to cancelling them before they begin. And then try send debt collectors after it. Well you have met your match I will take you to caught if I need be you are nothing more than a bully and should be ashamed of yourselves. Sky is not worst the hassle of something goes wrong buy virgin or any other competitor

    We've been at our new home for just 1 month, but my family all have used Sky since I was a kid and they always go back to them. So far at our house the broadband is more reliable, faster even though it is not fibre, than our last supplier which was fibre (to cabinet)! We get 150MBs as opposed to the 50MBs we had previously with Vdfn. Our engineer (Bakary) was fast and helpful with my questions. I have no complaints about Sky, which feels like a first for me as we have had a lot of trouble with companies we use this last year. Will stick with them as long as they do not hike price.

    Sky ru a lyaltiy program whih cthey like to tell you makes you a valued customer, well as a loyal customer of more than 20 years they made little to no effort to resolve issues with our highly unreliable fibre broadband - download speed of 49mbps upload 0.11mbps - how is anyone supposed to operate a modern home using this speed of upload? Sky were disinterested, and almost rude, their advisor telling me to make sure i returned their equipment or i would be charged - well they are welcome to it as it doesn't work ! AVOID if you can

    I've been with Sky for ~8 years. Unlike many people here my connection has been always very reliable and as fast as the cable/attenuation/physics permitted.
    However, one which always bothered me big time with them is that after 18 months they would always try to move you to the "no-discount" rate which nobody anywhere charges as it's ~30% more expensive. Even as a "veteran/platinum" customer I'm treated like an fresh imbecile while new customers are get cheaper deals they my current contract.
    I've always been able to negotiate "discounts" to keep my bills pretty much identical year-on-years. But this year is the first time Sky isn't will to negotiate. Which means 30% increase. Which means Bye Bye!!!

    Worst Internet experience I would not recommend this company to anyone. I am supposed to have super fast broadband for streaming ect. It doesn't work to the standard that sky advertises. I am coming to the end of my contract in march, I have agreed to a new contract and a upgraded my broadband with sky. However after my experience especially over the past few weeks I will be cancelling that contract and switching to plusnet who have offered me better wifi for a much cheaper deal. No matter how much loyalty I have shown sky for the past 4 years I still get provided with the same old poor service.

    Horrendous support. Sky makes is almost impossible to reach them for problems as they have this annoying bot that takes you in loops- both when calling and online. The promises made on their speed are a blatant lie and then despite guarantee to not charge if a certain speed hapoen - full price is charged!

    Writing this after my hub has broken again thats 2 in 4 months when it works broadband isn't that bad get reasonable speeds. Unfortunately broken twice and need engineer visit both times. Moved house 4 months ago and because my wife is now studying online decided to get fibre Unfortunately sky was not a good option and we have had to get a hot spot account just so my wife can still do her lessons. I wouldn't recommend sky to anyone and im now wishing I had read all the reviews on this site

    Oh dear. 22 years with Sky. Diamond VIP: none of it means a thing. I have wasted over 3 hours on the phone trying to resolve an issue started with one of their advisors putting me into an unsuitable contract. I’m afraid our relationship is over and I am now referring the matter to small claims court. I am not sure why they now have such an unreliable customer service team. The representatives all appear very helpful but promises of return calls fail to materialise and undertakings to offer a resolution are not honoured. I would urge anyone with similar issues to take legal action to at least air the matter.

    Had to get unlimited data on my phone as the WiFi keeps dropping out, cat 6 cable hard wired direct to hub is perfectly fine so it must be the hub boxes themselves that are rubbish, got conned into paying an extra £5 a month for sky boost but this does nothing, I will be moving to another provider when my contract runs out, counting down the days

    I am paying over £32 a month, i am supposed to get 20 megabyte's which continually keeps dropping down to between 1 & 3 megabyte's. Which makes it impossible to do the trading online as i need a steady fast connection. If you are looking for a reliable speed and connection i would not use SKY Broadband!

    Terrible service, new customers receive a better price than their long time customers. If you have a problem with the price they say they 'cannot' talk to you about it until the bill that you are unhappy with is paid.. shocking!

    I phoned sky about my TV subscription, however they would not listen until that had offered me every up grade on broadband, mobile, phone line, I refused all, having just recieved a new up graded hub I looked at my account to see they have gone ahead and upgraded my service at an extra £7 a month, I have e-mailed them and they are now cancelling my broadband altogether,
