    HOORAY! I'm finally free of Sky! I've nothing good to say about Sky other than I'm so glad I'm out of Contract with them and I ain't EVER going back! They provide an abysmal service which they keep increasing charges for. Anyone who is thinking of subscribing to Sky, do yourself a favour and DON'T! You'll thank me for it. Happy Days it's all over.

    Sky Wifi is not the worst I have ever seen, but it comes close to it. It is the most unreliable broadband I have ever had, where sometimes I even have to use my phones mobile data in my own home because I cannot trust the broadband to deliver. If you are considering getting it please make sure you are aware of everything you are receiving, and do not be brainwashed by their advertisements.

    Had a router problem after one or two issues finding the correct department.
    Eventually I spoke to SHABANA at the technical office who was so very patient and efficient even phoned back when the line went dead, very impressed.

    Don’t waste your money! Worst broadband I’ve ever had. No better than dial up! Costs £42 a month for sheer frustration in trying to watch anything online and only one device can be used or it can’t cope! Worst 18 months of my life! Totally useless! Not fit for purpose!

    Absolutely appalling. Terrible customer service. Shockingly bad. Wanted to upgrade my broadband to faster speed. So far it’s taken 10 phone calls (and each time I’m given a different story) and 2 months and it’s STILL not been sorted out. And all the time I’m paying for broadband I’m not receiving and my mobile bills are Sky high as I’ve no wi fi. Please please please don’t get broadband with these clowns because if you do, you will be sorry. Time for me to contact Trading Standards I think....

    The worst broadband I’ve had. Cannot watch TV for more than 5 mins without it pausing, often for a few minutes. Unable to efficiently work from home due to the broadband intermittently and repeatedly dropping off. Tied into a contract for 18 months but seriously thinking of ditching Sky and going with another.

    Constantly says that the access point is temporarily full despite it being used by only a few devices;there have also been other reports of this from over a year ago yet sky haven't bothered fixing the issue. Even when it does work the loading speeds are incredibly slow.

    Sky has so far been the best internet provider I’ve had in london. The setup was incredibly easy, we had no issues getting connected, and the internet connection is much faster and more reliable than Plusnet, which we most recently used. (I won’t even mention the horrendous experience we had with TalkTalk.)

    I appreciate broadband quality can be very location-dependent, but in this part of north London I can honestly say Sky is fantastic.

    The worst Internet provider in the UK. Inconsistent, slowest speed, worst service. This deserves no stars. The UK is a 1st world country whereas this provider is a 4th world country provider. I'd rather kill myself than use this WiFi ever again.

    An extremely slow broadband and this is with the newly introduced Sky Q box.

    Takes 20 seconds+ to get a page loaded - on a new computer - when it's currently being advertised as one of the best broadband companies in the country.

    Prior to Covid, it'd take more than 2 hours just to get seen by a Customer Service Agent; sometimes they wouldn't even help.

    Not reliable at all if you're trying to play games, search up something or do work.

    Not satisfied at all with this, fix your broadband before promoting it!

    Worst service in the UK, complete disergard for customers, incompetent engineers. It seems that in the year 2021 this company has no other excuse but "the pandemic" for the total loss of service caused by their fauly exchange. How many engineers do you need to fix the cabling at the exchange? Well... aprently not enough to identify the problem for a minimum of 10 days... at least according to sky...
    Don't go anywhere near this provider or you'll find out the hard way how terrible they are, just as I did.

    We switched to Sky and we were informed we could claim back out fees from previous provider if we switch. Despite 28 emails, using Sky’s complaints procedure and speaking with an advice, we have not received it. We only receive an irritating generic email. They also took money from our account without permission but later re-credited this. Once our contract is up, we’re leaving. It is impossible to get through to anyone to resolve issues.

    Had no service for almost a week for 12 hours every day, had engineer visits cancelled because. They're. "not needed" with no other reason given even though I still have the problem and nothings been done to fix it... Constantly given the run around. This is actually awful service. The staff lie to you to try and make you stay and not CANCEL.DONT GO WITH SKY.

    Speed depends on the package you take but customer service and incompetence of the team from Sky and Open reach to get things right the first time around is shocking. Lots of training needed there, poor Management overall it seems.

    This company rips people off. You are tied into long contracts and they can raise they prices as they like during the contract. If you don’t want to pay, you get hit with a massive fee for leaving mid contract. Scam!!!

    Internet mostly works fine, except when it doesn’t and Sky are hopeless at doing something about it.

    I am a lady on my own I was away from my house for16 mths because my family were in the best place to keep me safe as `i am 86yrs old .. i did contact sky while I was away as I did not intend to be away so long but the Manager I have just spoken to will not except that any of whose calls were valid so they are going to charge me £79 a mth for all the months that nothing in the house was used. I am in shock that as quite a long time customer they will not meet me on any of this and that was that kind of manner from the last man I spoke to . I did not ask his name . I am on my own and really do not know what to do next, cannot face having to change everything never thought a company as large as Sky would do this to a customer. pamela trevaskis

    Terrible. Cuts out at 5.30pm 2 days out of every 5. Advertised as guaranteed connection speed in every room, but patchy even when 2ft from router and simply doesn't connect if more than 12ft away. Impossible to contact to complain: no phone number provided.

    AVOID - Terrible broadband provider

    Connection always drops out

    Advertised speeds 49mb/s in reality I'm lucky to get 17mb/s and usually sits in around 6/7 mb/s

    After contacting customer support got new router and talked into upgrade package - this made NO difference

    Will never use Sky again

    It's 2.30 am and I can't even get a signal to go onto my kindle. It's such utter rubbish. It's so bad my son has his own broadband with virgin as he was getting lagged out everytime he was playing a game. So no my system isn't overloaded as I'm the only one using it or watching it buffering now for 40 mins. I got an upgrade to sky E but they never gave me a new broadband box after saying it was obsolete . So I have the same crap jox that made me seek an upgrade to begin with and I pay 103. 00 per month for that and I'm 8n a normal package without box office or Disney. I'm about to rip it out and through it out the window. Such a rubbish service. Back to free view and go with EE for my mobile. Certainly a hell of a lot cheaper.

    Don’t get this. Even if you want sky tv pay the extra and go with a separate broadband provider.

    The speeds go down massively all the time. Like I have a “guaranteed” download speed of 41mb and I’m currently sat 1 metre from the router and it’s 13mb. However when I check on the MySky app it says that the speed is 46mb. So I’m the interest of fairness I just checked another speed tester and it came back as 13mb from the same spot.

    They are a terrible company. Avoid at all costs.

    Broadband is painfully awful. I can’t even watch a YouTube video without it buffering for ages.

    Takes 2 hours to upload a 3 minute video to YouTube.

    Getting a woeful 7mb at the best of times.

    Having to rely on my mobile phone data to enjoy online gaming.

    Avoid Sky and save your money and time by going elsewhere.

    Single handedly the worst wifi system I've ever had any experience with. Completely useless and pathetic and breaks and bugs out constantly. Always saying "connected with no Internet" and generally just not working and being slow. Awful.

    Quite possibly the worst broadband provider in the uk. Slow speeds, unreliable connection and the cancellation process is a joke. Everyone knows that any cancellation must be in writing; with Sky you have to write to them and then PHONE them afterwards to cancel.
    Stay well away!

    I wouldn’t blame the customer service agents because they try to do their best to help. It’s the company itself that is rubbish. They increase their prices in the middle of the year and instead of reducing their issues, they stop their services completely (like today). Just check the “Down” website to see the reports!! Been paying for 40Mb/s and getting 2Mp/s. Such a joke! Can’t wait for to get out of this contract.

    NONE OF THE SCORES ABOVEARE MEANT TO BE 1, IT SHOULD BE 0.

    The internet went off about 3 times when making this bloody review.

    We had Sky since 2018, terrible. We upgraded to Sky Q which is meant to be advanced, modern and fast in 2020. Even worse than its normal version somehow. We have contacted Sky multiple times and they keep redirecting/bouncing us around and giving us crappy excuses.

    Working from home is a struggle, Online uni is a struggle (took me an hour to upload something which is 96MB), gaming is a struggle, anything you want to do with the internet is a struggle.

    Not even worth 5p.

    Internet keeps dropping yet somehow has enough connection to open up a webpage telling us it's down. Even when the router seems normal and fine it drops and the webpage opens telling us its down.

    Much more issues with this absolute shamble of an internet broadband but my internet may drop again preventing me from publishing this review so I'm submitting this before it does.

    One word sums it up. Awful. So unreliable and it constantly freezes. We pay for ultra fast and it’s struggling to manage 1mb of speed. STAY AWAY!
