They wouldn’t get WiFi this bad in 3rd world countries. Honestly don’t know where to start. Upgraded to sky fibre and since then it basically hasn’t worked. You call sky to help and they just run the same tests that say on their end it says it’s ‘stable’. Well if stable means your WiFi regularly switching off throughout the day and it being near impossible to play online without lagging, then boy it’s very stable. I honestly wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. The WiFi in a bar in Thailand had better connection, at least I could receive WhatsApp messages there. Never actually left a review in my life before this one cause I normally just think there’s a few people that have too much time on their hands, but seriously this broadband is so bad I’ve actually decided to write a review. Please do yourself a favour and stay as far away from this horrendous broadband as possible.

Very DISAPPOINTED with SKY, rip off, all they want is to take your money. Apparently the contracted ended 9 months ago no one got in touch n they have been taking £70 a month from my mum when the initial contract was £30. I spoke to the customer service guy he had no answers for my question apart from you are not getting no refund. Pure Robbery, slow broadband on top of that. ADVISE your friends and family to stay away from them, it's not worth the hassle.

For a few years Sky is going down worst is broadband getting connection to connect to the internet after hour disconnected it's a day or two get a connection .Have to reset if that doesn't get you connected try wireless button front of Hub might work randomly so I had a connection through Vaio manager one evening for hour or two felt pleased done what I connected to do having paying for unlimited broadband might as well go limited disconnect computer .I was with Sky talk supported the person had to go off show my match for security reasons waited online within half an hour waiting I fell asleep .When I had awaken 8.50 message was left me contact Sky in the morning I look to see the time message was written 8.45 .Next day I will persevere see if I can make a connection might even buy ethernet cable used the cable that was inside box when I received Hub .I would had like to go wireless never always possible last year now vertically impossible .Reset all connections having left every tool disconnected hour or more ,double checked the Sky book of setting instructions pretty much very easy re -connecting telephone ,the hub with leads in hub package and separately connecting to new filter .My phone ,tablets work fine I I'm thinking Windows 7 Premium it's so old not able make certain connection to connect .I have made it on the net about 3days on off fed up days not able acheive set up .Strange after exiting for the night ,next day I was quite exited cos I found myself working on the internet I made it wasn't be .Wonder if I stayed put on the internet 24hrs would've stayed connected .Really stressed out .I couldn't get support from computer companies as no internet connection hadn't ever thought this I know now .Looking forward for your earliest reply .With kind regards

installation was meant to be 19062017 in actual fact was 26072018,in this time two children studying for a'levels and mock exams clocked up £112 worth of additional data on phones for revision.SKY as gesture of so called goodwill refunded twenty ponds activation fee.Uunder no circumstances do sky or bt open reach take any responsibility for additional charges incurred by my family due to their inability to supply services when agreed bear in mind that you no longer have services from previous internet service provider.DO NOT USE SKY THEY WILL TEST YOU TO THE LIMIT AND SIMPLY HIDE BEHIND CONTRACTS THEY ARE NOT WORTHY OF YOUR BUSINESS .The biggest thing to bear in mind is this just because they are a big company doesn't make them the best as this case highlights they have become too big to care .

I’ve never hated a WiFi so much in the entirety of my life, in fact I’m using my mobile data to write this. Countless hours of complete and utter **** WiFi is driving me crazy, paying for sky fibre too which is meant to be the substitute for the original **** of a broadband system. Definitely cancelling soon and using another broadband, most stressful time due to this appalling WiFi

Very pathetic service provided for home move. They do not understand what the problem is and constantly send an engineer who says that it’s not his job to do. Customer service people also do not have any clue. One and half month completed from the time home move service has been initiated, still problem is not resolved..

AVOID!!!!!!!! Extended my contract without asking to higher amount when there was a fault with their equipment, triedto charge me for new equipment even though it was a fault with their equipment, do not investigate complaints, intermittent internet connection, first time I’ve ever had iplayer repeat certain sections of a programme due to poor broadband, so much buffering. Don’t go there, anywhere else is better.

Edinburgh Sky  
Awful, avoid! The connection drops several times a day and they cannot fix it (they didn't even want to investigate it properly). The price does not justify the service although I was told by their representative that I had been 'privileged' to pay 'as little' as almost £20 p/m (!) When I heard that I didn't know whether I should laugh or cry... Seriously Sky have some faith in the IQ of your customers. You are not alone on the market. Do some research and compare your prices as well as the reviews you are getting. I've made my decision. Switch to another provider has just been done.

DO NOT PURCHASE SKY BROADBAND !!
I was a sky customer for 18months I lost count of the amount of calls I made to their customer fault line !
I would spend on avarge 1 hr each time talking to them and despite dealing with some very polite agents I never had a working full servis from sky .
I would ring on a weekly basis I had hubs 'sockets ' leads 'changed on more than one occasion but still constant problems '
I live in a one bedroom flat and never had a signal strong enough even to connect my phone to 10 feet away
Never offered any form of compensation just more bull !!!
I only wish I had read the reviews before
You would think sky would offer a better servis rather than misleading their customers with constant lies about how all their other customers are happy
Total rubbish looking at the reviews
AVOID AVOID AVOID !!!!
Ealing Sky  
Awful. Just awful. Regularly experiencing speeds of 0.03mbps. They send engineers out and they say there's no problem with my lines. I've had all phone lines replaced in my property as a result of Sky's incompetency.
The only positive thing I would say is that they offered me this crappy service for the low price £18 a month.
I have never had the 17mpbs advertised - not once. Highest speed I've had was around 7mpbs, significantly lower than advertised.
My advice? Avoid at all costs if you actually want to use your internet.

Awfull experience
I sign a contract because I was recommended by a friend, however my experience has been absolutely awful . I booked the engineer to installed the broadband and they never show up, on the same date they send me the new bill even though the service was not installed and not communication at all from sky. I call them a week after to find out that the appointment has been reschedule for a day I won't be at home. The customer service that I received was very poor none of the advisor could explain what happened and the funny thing they want mw to make appointment but there is not 100% guarantee the engineer will come for the appointment to install your service.

London Sky  
When I had a sky broadband contract I was getting a download speed of approx 13mbps and an upload speed of .75...then when my contract was up it dropped to 2/5mbps and upload of .2/.35 ???? strange that! I have noticed in previous years exactly the same would happen. I contacted Sky who said there was a problem on the line and they would send an OpenReach engineer out, I stated clearly that I would not be put automatically into a new contract if they sent someone out. The engineer arrived two days later and proceeded to check the router, phone system and line....guess what? nothing wrong at all, when I told him of my suspicions about Sky dropping the broadband speed to get me into another contract he didn't confirm it but said "you need to be having a word with Sky again"... so all infall the ******** are dropping peoples download speed to get them into another contract!!! I live about half a mile from the exchange so they cannot use that excuse; I am now swapping provider who tested my line and said I would get 76mbps and 28mbps upload...guaranteed 65mbps and 20mbps upload respectively !! I would have given sky 0 in all areas but one star was the minimum, I will never ever use Sky again..too big to fall Eh?.

I have no satellite signal for about a month and have spoken to customer services on a number of occasions. They are the most unhelpful people ever. They won’t send an engineer. And they say I should sort it out myself with my managing agents. I am so so frustrated with them. I want to cancel my subscription. They are a total waste of time. Taking your money but I get nothing for it.

Why Sky  
Just upgraded to fibre max, and the speed is no where near the estimated. A little bit off, fair enough, but not even close (about half the speed). Tried using the text support - quite ironic that the initial response is along the lines of 'so you can get on with your day', what they dont tell you is everytime you get passed to someone else, you have to start from scratch....if it goes into another day, you have to start from scratch.....even worse when they say they'll get back to you and dont...when you raise that they didn't get back, they say there system can see a message was sent....a message asking you to rate satisfaction is not the same as an actual response. During one of the conversations, when they found that an Xbox was connected to broadband, the adviser mentioned that downloads speeds are often restricted by Microsoft....I wasn't commenting on speed on there, so really dont see the relevance here. I'm looking to move as I'm in cooling off period soon, and would not recommend

UNBELIEVABLY POOR

Sky broadband is so extremely bad, that I couldn't even load the SKY webpage to run the Sky broadband speed test. Do I need to say anymore?

So, I tried to visit the Virgin Media website, as I want to change provider, but it won't load that either.

DON'T BUY SKY BROADBAND.

To be fair, the Sky TV package is very good. But, broadband is worse than dial up.

Do not bothere going through the pain of trying to get this wifi to work as it just won't happen. Sky is so overrated. The connection if horrible, 95% of the time it doesn't give you any connection, my wifi bar is ALWAYS on just 1 bar. No matter whether your stood right next to the sky box or in the next room, it never works. It took me about 30 minutes just to get the wifi to work to get to write this review, it took me literally 16 minutes just to send 1 message. Not to mention how the connection always disconnects by its self, and then I have to go through typing the passwords all again. I do NOT recommend

None of your business Sky  
Absolutely shocking customer service. Am moving home and called through on Sunday, 3rd June about my Sky broadband and what would happen about moving to a new property who were about to install Sky. Was told that if the new property was going onto Sky, that my contract could be cancelled with no early termination charges even though I was still in contract. Confirmed twice with the customer services operator Paul and he stated that was correct. Well that was an utter lie apparently, as when I called today to cancel my Sky contract as the new property is now with Sky, was told I was liable for £58 cancellation fee. If I had known, we wouldn't have got Sky installed last week (had already arranged the engineer). Utterly shocking that customers are told one thing and when they take it at face value are hit with a significant charge later. Won't be recommending Sky to anyone! Such bad customer advice!

Wow. I can not comment on sky's broadband speed as I'm yet to experience that joy but I will say save yourself the headache save yourself the time most providers are run through the same bloody line so just go with one that provides actual customer, just call the provider you want on a number you find on the internet not the one they give to sale you the product and see if it is possibly to be put through to a human. Let me save you time with sky it is not oh unless you want to message them through Facebook messenger and than repeat yourself a 1000 times and be sent emojis like your talking to your girlfriends and not a business. You've been warned.

Pure waste of time i have been with sky now over 11 years, got the new sky hub broadband and never had anything but issues, today i rang them to be told the advisor would call me back in 10/15 mins..!! hour later i ring them there closed.
I pay easy £120 every month and ends up costing me more when everyone in the house runs out of data because the service i pay sky for does not work..!!! It’s a pure joke, i then get a text to say new router that i ordered is on its way? i didn’t order anything i’m waiting on a call back..!!! Fair to say i’ll be leaving sky tomorrow.

Shoreham-by-Sea Sky  
Let's begin by moaning about the overall broadband connection. let me start by saying that it I said a miracle that I am able to access this website online. Wizardry I tell you. We have calculated that the broadband speed is running at around 0.75 thingys which compared to the 30-40 thingys that are neighbours and close friends are getting, it doesn't sound all that marvellous. We have been having problems with our WiFi connection since May 2017. Since then it has been off and on constantly. We contact the useless people who live in the Sky call centre and ask them for help. It seems that all they are capable of doing is sending round an engineer who arrives around one week later. I genuinely believe that every single Sky engineer has visited our house. It gets worse.
I can tell you exactly what the engineers do:
First they identify the router box and wiggle a few cables around. Then they try turning it off and then turning it back on. Then they declare that they have done everything within their capability and call for a BT Openreach engineer who tracks it back down the cable to the big green box at the end of the road. He then declares that it isn't his job and that the Sky engineers should be able to fix it as it isn't within the household. Then a Sky engineer comes round and it all happens again.
Our grief doesn't end there. The people who are on the other end of the phone are frankly rude and disrespectful. All they do is ensure that they are not at fault. As a matter of fact, one of the people told us that we had to go out to a pub to use the Sky Hub that they put there. WHAT?! We pay nearly £80 a month for Sky services and get nothing in return. To quote my nan, Sky can shove their services up their jumper.

Wavertree Sky  
After 2 years with Sky I moved to another provider. The internet was not any better than the cheaper providers'. Connection usually dropped at 8pm and took 5-10min to recover, speed was very slow, streaming series (Netflix, Amazon, BBC) was never good quality, often stopping for loading.
Moved to another provider, all confirmed and set 2 weeks before last payment. It didn't stop Sky to prepare the bill for next month and they even took the money from my account 2 weeks after I left them. I called them straight away, they promised a refund but said that it could not be processed until the 12th May (another 2 weeks later). Of course the refund never went through so I waited for the day when they normally take the monthly payment. That day also passed and today they sent an email saying that they owe me almost £40 which will be transferred to my account in the next 10 days. Overall they took my money and failed to give it back for two months. Disgusting, they never even apologized.
