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?.

Brilliant for 2 years but then removed Sky TV from package, now half the speed, frequent disconnections. Not the way to attract me back to sky tv again when they use these sort of tactics

Speed is always below 1Meg, customer service do not want to know, they say something has changed in the house, this is total rubbish, the speed has dropped over the last couple of years by nearly 1Meg to the point where is is becoming unusable, to download a movie it takes nearly 18 hrs, in this day and age it is total rubbish and i would not recommend.

Absolutely shocking, shocking service. Never had anything like that. First of all, they say that they give good speeds for my area yet my neighbours are only hitting 5 Mbps? If I were to only be so lucky. I have been checking my internet speeds consistently over the past few days. 1 Mbps. I started downloading a game last night at 7pm. 25 hours later and im 19% in. TERRIBLE. Also, it's worse value for money than professional football matches. Avoid Sky at all costs, people. Don't even bother giving yourself such a bad time. Never, ever again.

The service that I have had from sky has been absolutely horrendous. The broadband is extreamly slow! Virgin is much better. When the router breaks, which it will as I have had 3, the call waiting time is minimum 40 mins each time and then someone on the other end hangs up! Would never in a million years recomemd Sky to my worst enemy! Horrific expirinace! Never again!

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

DON’T BE REELED IN BY SKY’s DEALS WITH BROADBAND AND TV. Their customer service is long and when they send out an engineer the likely hood of them not coming is very high. Disconnects are extremely common and the router is appauling. Do not recommend. Go for a smaller ISP who will look after you And does not assume that your wallet is a pit of endless money. Worst ISP ever...

Very poor quality.. always disconnecting. You just cannot watch any videos smoothly even on YouTube. You can only expect a normal speed of network in the afternoon for around 2 hours during weekdays. If you want to use internet at night or weekends you need to be very patient and wait wait wait. The worst broadband experience I have ever had.

For the pst 18 months myself and my partner have complained about broadband connectivity, We loose the ability to record programmes,loose recordings thyat we thought were recording ok and unable to download movies and the whole package is awful. We are fobbed off each time and although engineers come out the problem reoccurs. For £75 pcm the service is awful and not worth the money. I am going to look at alternative packages as the service is lousy. Totally p ssed off with Sky!!!!!

Moved house almost a month ago to a family members house who also had Sky. My mother called up to inform them, told to call back a week later in order to get our services switched on. My family member in the mean time had hers switched over 3 days into the move. Mother called up and spoke to a customer service advisor who's level of English was worse than a 1 yeat old told us he'll get it switched on in a week. The week passes no internet on, I call them up and get told that we had apparently signed up for Fibre which will take 4 weeks to be turned on. I get a confirmed switch date for 5th October. Call up and promised it will be on for 6. 7pm no internet call back and spend 2 hours on the phone to be told Open Reach missed the appointment and no one contact me to inform me. Now they say they cannot do anything until next week. I would seriously consider staying away. Calling up Virgin Media first thing tomorrow.

Many calls to them!

I got an engineer appointment to fix my problem, no one came and then the customer service told me that the speed is maximum which not reached 6.

I have cancelled the contract with them.

Just been on the phone with sky customer service and was told to buy a new router because it's not working well as what it should, it goes off from 12 midnight till around 5 in the morning and they said it was my responsibility to take care of the router..... are you joking me right now! Also to get a new router I have to pay £69. Even though paying £30 a month for the last two years means absolutely nothing to them...!! Disgusting

Seriously 2016 and its rubbish! Not really the speed although it's not great but it's doesn't always work. Regularly it's not picking up. I feel unless you pay over the top fees for fibre optic (although ppl have said that's rubbish too) you get the broadband speed and reliability as the 1990s dial up connection. Disappointed with Sky as a whole and I'm leaving soon as my contract is up.

Avoid this company like the plague.

They pretty much charged me for a service I didn't receive and when I questioned them for a refund they told me that it was "tough luck".

It's come to light that Sky reel you in with good offers then try to rob you in any way they can once they have you.

I am fighting a loosing battle with stubborn employees refusing to help me.

I hope when Murdoch buys his pies with my money he doesn't choke. - Don't trust Sky.

Well what can I say. I'm on day two. I've been told by the BT engineer that the line is good and should get speeds around 60 meg download and it's nice and clear. We plug in the sky router and NO device, wireless or wired, can get anything about 4.5Mb, with pings that reach anything up to 450ms. Clearly not fit for purpose I waste time on calls to customer services on day 1 to be told "Don't worry - it'll be activated overnight and should be good tomorrow". That brings us to today. No improvement on download speeds at all, cut off by customer service after numerous transfers and switched to a text system without even asking me. At present, it's looking like it's going to be headed straight to the ombudsman as missold for a full refund and very public (I'll make sure) embarassment for Sky.

I moved from Virgin to sky but I wish I just stayed with Virgin. First the agent told me yes it would definitely be activated a week from that day and that worked perfect for me. This was around the 7th November. 2.5 months later still no service. I started to call in and all I was getting was 24- 72 hours it would be activated. I was very angry and I wanted some honesty as to what was going on. I ended up speaking to a patronising manager who said I had to pretty much wait The agent assured me it would definitely be on for New Year’s Eve. They are sub contracting to BT so they have to rely on them. It’s disgraceful honestly

Wifi totally waste of time. Should get 40mbs getting 0.08 to 22.4. No signal if i move 10ft away from router. Had sky out several times Sky engineer says there's a problem with broadband signal phone sky they say its working fine no help at all. Went to Argos bought wifi adapter for £19.99 plugged in set up in 60sec can now get signal no prob. Sky just want your money not interested what happens after total waste of time.

Blackwood caerphilly wales Sky  
I have had a problem with my broadband speed since 2nd January 2016. The concern was discussed with your Support team and no concern was found, therefore i was advised to have my phone line checked. I have had a Technician from BT Openreach check the line at a potencial cost of £151 even though all he did had no effect on the speed of the Broadband! I have been back in contact with Sky Technicians to explain that there as been no change in the speed of my Broadband or phone.
The issue was revisited and it was found that the speed had been set at a reduced level instead of the highest broadband speed, which i pay for. The Support Team Member assured me that any cost occured for the BT Openreach Technicians visit would be absorbed by Sky. I am very greatful for this gesture.

Many thanks

The worst broadband ever I lost my internet connection at Least once a day for an hour and once a moth for several days to a week. Engineers didn't show up at agreed times customer service that made hollow promises and down right lied to me about what was agreed engineers came several hours early and then claimed that I wasn't in. Poor service I've cancels my subscription and transferred to a rilible service, will never get any off sky's services again

Sky and BT Openreach don't exactly make a dream partnership. Installation confirmed by lots of text messages from them, I thought wow great communication. Engineer didn't show up. Rescheduled installation date only to be emailed a past date. Advisors haven't a clue, kept transferring calls then they put you on hold for ages then hang up the phone! What a farce!!!! Shocking customer experience.

Complete garbage. Have the essential package of 14 - 20mb because although being in the town centre next to the exchange fibre isn't available. Coincidentally i only receive the guaranteed minimum of 11mb. Can barley watch a youtube video and cant play games whilst being an avid gamer. No solution given when attempting to resolve and potentially upgrade, no help at all given to point me in the right direction. Genuinely the biggest piece of **** iv'e wasted money on.

I was with o2, they were taken over by sky, not much changed.
They are pretty reliable, but the download speed is less than a third of what I am paying for 5mb, instead of 17mb, so now they're putting their prices up, yet again, I intend moving to a different ISP to get fibre, and hopefully a faster connection speed, for the same price I am paying sky. It's time the government sorted out these ISP providers, you pay for one thing, but you get another, it's a scam.

Stay very clear if sky broadband! Thus is the second time i have had an issue with there broadband; i was with them 5 years ago and changed broadband because it didnt work at all thus leaving me internetless for 6 months before they could give me a "solution" whitch as youve might of guessed didnt work. I then went to BT and they were absolutly fabulous it only dropped out once in the whole year! Now i have gone back to sky because they gave me a deal; i now pay over £60+ a month on tv and broadband and 5 years on they still havent learnt from their mistakes and their customer service is still a gastly as before! THE INTERNET DROPS OUT EVERY DAY! im lucky to be able to connect for an hour each day before it stops working. The wifi is also terrible, i can be in the same room as the router and still only get 1 bar. This is disgracfull expesally when i pay £60+ a month. Im defenatly goinv back to BT becayse worst of all sky wobt compansate me and say "tgey cant do anything" when iv been troble free with BT for 4 years with ZERO complaints. Futhermore, this effcts my sky tv because when i want to chill and go on demand to download a movie it cant download because the internet is utterly, utterly and utterly poor!
