    Oh my god. Every. Single. Night.
    The dreaded, 11PM...
    The only thing Sky Broadband is consistent with would be completely shutting down at 11-12PM.

    This is the worst customer experience I have ever had. For a long time I told myself not to switch away from TalkTalk because the connection was so reliable and my kids will kill me if they can't game. I never had any issues with TalkTalk, but was lured by the prospect of Sky Q multi-room TV - what a truly disastrous error. Constantly drops the connection meaning my kids get kicked out of games they're winning and we can't watch a movie without having to re-boot the sky box. I have discovered that several of my friends have also been drawn in with identical results. I have spent hours on the phone with Sky only to receive a barrage of useless information. I am told that the source of the issue is the firmware carried by the Sky router and thy can't find a fix for it. Have tried bridging using a separate modem and router, but Sky has put blockers on so you can only use their kit - which is utterly useless. Am currently planning a fathers' one-way trip to the Moon so our Kids can't find us and terrorise us any more! So bad, I'm going to take the contract hit and move away.

    Absolutely the worst broadband experience, drops, slow and they do not let you cancel. Totally disgusted.
    I would not go with sky for anything again, and previously albeit several years ago it was very good.
    I just want to cancel. And use a provider that works.

    Why I stayed with Sky for more than 3 years I have absolutely no idea. Their upload / download speed is a joke for the package you pay. And without hesitation or an apology, they upped their pricing an extra fiver a month without informing their customers! Sod that, I've left. I now pay 9.99 all in (inc line rental). I suggest others do the same and look elsewhere...

    Would give 0 on everything except customer service if I could. Been horrendous since installing and been worse since working from home. Constant drop outs and slow download speeds on both work and personal devices with some things taking literally days to download. Do not bother with it

    It is the worstttttttttt service I have ever had. The internet sucks, the servicemen screwed up my wires very badly and costumer service made me wait 1.5 hours just to hang up on me and not call me back. The instant messenger service is useless- waited two days for response and then got told to talk to phone reps! Worse ever!!

    Avoid. Cannot understand advisors, do not follow through with promises, if advisors are United Kingdom - they are extremely rude. All products incur faults. Waiting times are enormous. Try another company first for your nervous system.

    Took 6 weeks (and 4 calls each lasting longer than an hour) before they told me that everything they had told me before was wrong, then right, then wrong again.

    I left when they said it was would be another two weeks before I had internet (would have been waiting for a total of 8 weeks!!!!!!!!).

    Their callcentre staff don't do as they say they will and each time you call they have no record of your previous call. They say they'll call you and then don't and just lie about the extra things they need to charge you for (e.g. an Engineer that needs to come, then doesn't, then does, then doesn't).

    Just awful. Very stressful, and ultimately fruitless.
