    Worst internet I've ever had and I've had a few internet service providers since the 90s. WiFi barely reaches upstairs (new build so the walls are paper thin), low speed, constantly craps out. Paying £35fl for absolutely nothing. Bottom line? Avoid sky at all costs

    What a shambles of a company
    What a shambles of a company. Useless in every sense of the word. Trying 6 weeks to get a PAC code. Tried and tried told they are working on it, and its with the back room. How many people work in this room?
    I have a SKY Package and moved from Fibre at 1.87mB to full fibre supposedly 500mB BUT ONLY GET 51M.
    WANT TO GET RIPPED OF BY A USLESS TRULY UNWORTHY COMPANY.

    I left a review some months ago to warn people to stay away from this atrocious, abyssmal provider. I return to inform you all that it has gotten so much worse over these months, that I wish I could leave negative stars or something of that nature. I have been experiencing on the daily: constant drops, constant lag, constant slow speeds that it is affecting me in more ways than I would have ever thought. Please, stay away, do not ever use. Any positive reviews are probably Sky employees trying to big their horrendous wi-fi. AVOID!

    Honestly I'm surprised I even have WiFi to post this. Awful WiFi slow unreliable and honestly just avoid you could probably send a messenger pigeon quicker than using the WiFi service. 0/10

    We were with sky for a year and it was all good. However, when we moved house and chose to stay with sky all the problems began.

    We had an openreach engineer come around to fix the line. Halfway through the appointment he went out to work at the street cabinet, then came back and said he would continue the work later. We never heard from him for the rest of the day. I called sky and they were not able to help or even contact open reach to check what the issue was. All they offered was to rebook the appointment 3 weeks later. This was frustrating as we were working from home and really needed wifi. But we were patient.

    3 weeks later, I get a text from openreach at 9:00 confirming the engineer has been assigned and is on his way. 10 mins later another text from Sky to say the appointment was missed. Jokes! Called sky and they were unable to contact openreach again. The notes said "client was not at the property." That was a lie, we were home amd waiting. We even received a courier package around 8:45. My timeslot was between 8:00 to 13:00 and yet Sky were unable to rebook on the same day. I was made to wait another 2 weeks through no fault of mine. I had to make other arrangements to make sure I was able to work.

    I understand that this was mainly Openreach's fault but the fact that Sky could do nothing to help is really frustrating. Not staying with them after my contract ends.

    First the bad: The router isnt great. but you can invest in a better router or in WAPs to fix that.

    The pricing. Its not cheap and if you invest in sky cinema there are still a bunch of films on sky store that you have to pay more for.

    The good: Customer service has always been fine. Never unhelpful... but not ground breaking either. I've always been able to get help where I've needed it.

    The BB is decent though. My work computer is hard wired into the router and I never have any issues at all, I stream movies in HD on the tv (2 tvs at the same time).

    I ordered full fibre in December and expressly asked for my current landline number to swooped over to sky and was promised it would defiantly be done. The fibre optical cable was installed to my house and left as a big loop against the front house wall then after 5 hours of calls to sky on Christmas Eve and many attempts to sort my order out which they kept cancelling I was told my old number cannot be brought over to sky after that promise originally. I’m now left with the prospect of having to pay the old service provider for a service to keep my phone number active and then pay again to sky for another service to improve on my broadband speed . Sky has not offered anywhere near a reasonable discount to compensate my situation and future extra costs . Just to clarify they have started the job , made promises and subjected me to having to spend multiple hours trying to sort things out and still unresolved. DO NOT USE SKY !!!

    Useless broadband can’t stream anything to watch.
    Overpriced TV channels.
    Poor value compared to Amazon prime and net flicks. NOT WORTHY OF A ONE STAR REVIEW
