    I've been with Sky for some years now but call every year to argue for a reduction on the bill for the next 12 months as they are not competitive (too expensive) and the service isn't great. I've had 2 modems from them now and the ranges are poor. The service is definitely intermittent - both by PC and my TV drop out reasonably regularly which is very frustrating if you're watching a film and have to take a break while the broadband reconnects which can take ages. I wouldn't recommend it but I stick with it as I can't be bothered to set up a new supplier. Virgin cable, which I had before, was much better but it was hideously expensive.

    We have fibre broadband with Sky at 1Mb they do not know why and do not want to do anything else to fix it. My advise go to anyone else.

    Awful customer service. Whenever there is a problem, you can never get through to an actual person to help you. Instead they put you on hold for ages while playing recorded messages trying to get you to solve the problem online. Which you can't because either you can't get online, or the issue you're having is not in the pre-canned list. Then you get disconnected. What a complete waste of time. I am switching to another provider as this service is totally unacceptable.

    Had an automated phone call this morning informing me that my WiFi is about to be disconnected and to contacted my provider to have a new one installed. Tried to contact sky by text, live chat, email via their site but found it impossible. Tried phoning and repeatedly got the “we are extremely busy at the moment, waiting time is currently 20 mins” that I seem to get every time I ring them. Disgusting service. Don’t have anything to do with them - I wish I hadn’t. And this is only a few weeks after the last disruption in service.

    Drops way too often. Sky please get your s*it together and try to prevent this. It’s literally happening a few times a month, it’s very annoying.

    Very difficult to get through to CS using their "live chat" facility. Phone team unable to offer any real deals. Lure in with great deals then more than double after deal ends. Broadband with sky feels congested during the evening.

    The difference in deals for new customers and old is really terrible. If you have a choice of signing up with a provider that doesn't more than double the prices after their deal ends and has good customer service track records - go for that!!

    Sky Broadband is without doubt the most abysmal internet service I have ever had. I signed up to Be Internet about 6 years ago (having read their Which review) and never had any problems with them. Recently they were bought out by Sky and I received letters telling me when my service would be transferred over. I was a little apprehensive, having read the Which website review, which revealed that Sky came 11th out of 12 suppliers for customer satisfaction.

    A day or so after the transfer, I began experiencing internet outages two or three times a day and my ping rose from its usual 50-60ms to around 159ms. Download speeds were also awful. I was supposed to be getting 10-15mbps and if I were lucky, I'd get 100k/s (a tenth of the speed) on a good day and with a following wind. Then I received an email confirming that my monthly fee would be £30 (with Be it had been £17).

    So I rang their customer services to complain about the jump in fee and the poor signal and to request my MAC code. Their advisor was very professional and explained that the reason for the monthly fee of £30 was merely because this was a first payment to Sky for being transferred over to their service and it would return to £17 per month thereafter. She put me through to the technical support, who told me that Sky were running a test on the line so my signal would be going up and down for about tne next 4 days but should settle down and return to it's previous levels.

    My signal didn't improve. In fact, if anything, it got worse. More disconnections and streaming video was pretty much impossible.

    5 days later my MAC code arrived and - in the same post - an itemised bill from Sky which revealed that my monthly internet fee was actually £12 for the broadband. The remainder of the £30 was made up of surcharges for not having Sky Talk and Sky TV included in my package!!! So effectively Sky were charging me for NOT having a product. I'm surprised they didn't chuck in a charge for not seeing the latest X-Men movie.

    I immediately used the MAC code to subscribe to Zen (which I'd selected from their Which review). The next day, I get a phone call from a Sky customer sales advisor expressing sadness that I was leaving and asking the reasons (which I explained) and then asking me to hear what they could offer me - which included offering broadband for only £12 a month (he must not have realised I'd read my itemised bill) and significant discounts for my continued loyalty which he assured me - as a longstanding customer - I'd lose if I left them. I explained that I hadn't actually joined Sky by choice, I wasn't a long standing customer and he could give me the broadband for free for all I cared but I still wouldn't want it because it was so unreliable). He seemed genuinely perplexed that I'd happily pay MORE to leave Sky and go to a more reliable ISP.

    The next 3-4 days were a trial as the Sky service continued to be abysmal. Then on the Friday, the signal changed over to Zen and - what do you know? - my signal improved immensely, my pings dropped from 160ms to 50ms and my download speeds went through the roof. I had a slight hiccup with the new router they sent me but I rang their technocal support team and their advisor talked me through how to set up my existing router to do the job until their replacement came. I haven't had any problems since and I couldn't be happier.

    As to Sky broadband? I can say with conviction "NEVER AGAIN!"

    We have had an ongoing issue with our sky broad band for about 3 months. Internet had been on and off. Sometimes off for days at a time. After numerous calls to sky...recently everyday the issue is still to be resolved. We have been instructed to buy a new router which did not work then 2 days later a engineer and now a week later they want us to pay for another engineer to come out. We are paying for broad band and on demand services which cannot be used. Id advise using another provider if you want any reliability and to save money.

    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.

    Absolutely awful
    Absolutely awful. Miscalculated our go live date 3 times and had to wait 3 weeks for a connection as there wasn't an updated line in the building (a regular problem with sky). Had to cancel online work and interviews because we weren't notified until the evening of the go live day. Promised us a refund of £8 a day for every day without broadband and then charged us for installation and first months wifi (£40 should have been £22 or 0) and have put extra charges on our next bill for changing our package which has not occurred in anyway. Massively regret going with them and should have gone with Now Broadband or stuck with Post Office. Adverts saying 'super reliable' are complete rubbish. Can foresee further issues arising in future will probably have to switch providers.

    Terrible provider, always slow, get about 6mbps and most of the time this will drop... Sky box crashes all the time, slow at downloading HD. The only compliment I will give sky is that they rarely ever go down, so in some respect they are reliable if you like browsing at low speeds, all the time. The interface for sky tv is pretty good and easy to use but I spend more time on the internet therefore I dislike it majorly.

    Customer service says stuff will happen and nothing ever does.

    Sky want to reel you in and over complicate things. I am moving house and need to cancel. Just been through 10 pages of advertising and 'why are you leaving'? questions, to be told that I have to call them, when you call, it tells you you have to wait an hour and to check online. Check online and you have to call... Kafkaesque!

    The customer service and communication of Sky is truly awful. They make it almost impossible to be cancel.

    I had weeks of trouble trying to get the broadband set up (whilst paying for it of course) having to make regular departures from my place of work. This eventually caused months overhang on my 12 month tenancy which I had to pay for.

    Every phonecall/transaction results in you losing money, you have to spend hours on the phone to get them to agree that you're in credit after they've wrongly vaccuumed what they like from your personal bank account.

    I've had phonecalls that have descended to me having to explain simple maths. Once you've got agreement they still don't do what they say and you start the whole thing again.

    I'm not a usual reviewer/complainer but this type of behaviour needs to be documented as they do not deserve your money.

    Changed from BT fibre which was poor and now starting to regret it. The speed is much faster than BT's offering, but The Sky service keeps on dropping out - every day without fail and throughout the day. It's so frustrating for every member of my family!!'n

    I have been with sky ever since i moved out of my parents 12 years ago and most of the time i have had an acceptable service. as far the sky+ service you cant fault it after all its just watching tv most companies cant get this wrong. broadband however leaves you feeling like you've just been ripped off most of the time. the majority of the time i have had normal adsl and this was always terrible where ever I lived (even at one point next door to an exchange) maxing out at about 5mb/s connection speed so about 500kb actual download speeds for the promised "upto 20mbs" they claim which im assuming you only get if you hardwire your computer into the exchange itself or something. moving on i now have fibre unlimited 40mb which is not too bad even though the hub they give you is no where near capable of this speed and the wireless is the worst ever. all in all id say if you want a mediocre service that just about does what it says sometimes then sky is for you. otherwise id go with virgin even though they throttle speeds you still get 10x more than you would with sky on a good day. thats my 2 pence. thanks lol

    I pay for Sky because it is cheap, and I get very little money, so I only spend under 30 a month. But it lies, I am only meant to get 15mbs, and whenever I check it on their website it says that it is constantly at 19mbs.What BS. I have spent the lazt 2 hours, trying to watch a video that's not even in HD, and is only 23 minutes long. It buffers every 2 seconds. I am not convinced it is ever at 19mbs, and believe Sky is a scam. I like in a two people household, and the only other person who is on the wifi, is my partner who is just on his phone. Regret my choices but I am on a contract.

    Their customer services are among the best I've used which is one of the reasons I've stayed with them over the years, but the broadband speeds in our area are rubbish. I am supposed to get up to 24MB and my latest speed test shows I get around 4.

    i have been told by my broadband provider that due to the distance i am from the cabinet my fibre speeds are capped at 22 mbs- so by the time it reaches me it drops to between 9 and 13 mbs. i am paying for fibre broadband and i have been told that due to the quality of my telephone line i cannot get faster speeds. is this the fault of BT as they own the lines or is this sky who are telling me they cannot get it any quicker. or is it the quality of their HUB. sky customer service is very good, but not sure if truthful when it comes to speeds.

    As a student myself and my two flat mates had sky broadband installed because it was one of the cheapest offers on the market, and everyone we knew had decided to go with Sky also.

    I must admit, we never had any issues with connection except for when there was a storm, and the speed wasn't really an issue either. However, the customer service from Sky is appalling. Trying to cancel the broadband was a very difficult process - one that started in early June and has only just concluded in mid August. Sky had continued to take money from my account the month after it was cancelled, having given the required 14 day notice this should not have happened. To make things worse, every time we phoned the customer service team we got a different response, initially telling us that we owed more money for cancellation despite our contract term being over. Both members of the team at the call centre we spoke to about this were rude, patronising and unhelpful, and both insisted that we had been told about cancellation fees when we took out the contract (there was no mention of this as we didn't cancel it early). Having paid the extra they claimed we owed, I then received an email stating that I was due a refund for the money that had been taken out of my account and the extra I had paid.

    I think it is worth mentioning that all 6 of my student friends that chose Sky broadband for their student houses also had very similar, if not worse issues with sky when it came to cancellation. Definitely an experience that none of us will be going through again.

    My experience with Sky and their broadband has been somewhat mixed, but mostly negative after being with them for around a year at this point. When it works it's actually pretty decent, I can keep a good connection to stuff like servers and hosts, and downloading -- while obviously not that fast -- is usually not bad either. And it is an unlimited service, so there's no real limit to what you can do outside of really intensive tasks that go past the provided bandwidth.

    My biggest complaint however is the reliability of it all. The above statement is irrelevant most of the time, as I am constantly hit with huge spikes in lag or latency when playing games or streaming a basic video, and even worse the broadband tends to disconnect entirely which results in loss of connection and is incredibly frustrating to experience. I wouldn't mind this so much if it happened maybe once or twice a day, but I suspect that it happens dozens of times per day and makes me a bit afraid to do something over the Internet in case it does happen.

    I have used customer service a few times and am likely going to start looking at perhaps switching providers if my experience with Sky does not improve, but even when officials come directly to my house it doesn't end up being very useful. I've had my router replaced once which has done virtually nothing to fix any of the connection problems, and an analyst of some sorts came and went without giving any insight or anything that could help me become a bit more reassured. To give credit where credit is due though, the manual service is certainly there, but how useful it is will vary from person-to-person.

    In short, I am overall quite dissatisfied with the reliability of the service and would not recommend getting Sky broadband on that front, unless you only need very light use of the Internet (such as browsing text and pictures, or looking at e-mails). Everything else is sort of in the middle, not amazing but it has some merit to it.

    I was a Sky Broadband customer (speed and reliability perfectly fine), then switched to another provider 12 months ago. Called the Sky Broadband sales team again recently to check offers and was immediately put off by the Neanderthal-like sales tactics. They've put me off and I won't be returning!

    We decided to move over to Sky broadband after a few issues with another provider. Ordering process fairly easy and the box arrived within a few days - great!
    However, all ready to set up to become live on the date shown on the box and surprise surprise it didn't activate. After leaving until the next day as it stated it may take up until midnight to activate it still hadn't. We called up customer services who told us there was fault on the line and we wouldn't be up and running until the following Monday (no mention of engineer visits) - that was 3 days away! Why not be notified of this, Sky are very happy to email/text with welcoming you and for bank details but not when there is an issue! Same day of calling I received a text to say we were up and running..errr no! Rang them again and was told an engineer would need to come out due to a fault on the inside line! Engineer appeared only to unplug one cable and insert into another part of the plug - what a waste of a trip for OpenReach's engineer and us staying at home from work to let him in! I would say Customer Services NEED to have an option to run through three or so ways to fix the issue over the phone because wasting an engineeer's time as well as ours - it turns out we had too many extensions on our plug!!!!! No one told us and it has been a waste of Skys/Open Reach resources not to mention ours and our data allowances on Phones!!!! Something that could have easily been fixed from someone talking us through it on the phone. A 3 Step run through solution would stop an easy error becoming a major issue. We also tried the 3 'simple' steps on the sky help online forum none of which mentioned too many extensions cables - sort it out Sky!

    This could have been an easy fix and instead you have wasted our time and not to mention OpenReach's Time when there are real issues that people have been waiting weeks to have sorted!!!!

    disappointing customer service. Long waiting times and little help resolving technical problems. Over a weeks waiting to clear no ringing problem on phoneline.

    Having checked speed and found to be 0.24-0.39 Mbs DL (not fibre) expected up to 6mb!! contacted Sky, most helpful with all -- checked line OK, changed filters, re-booted, changed cord from router to master socket. Zilch!! On phone (mobile) for half hour plus going over the same things. At last managed to get an engineer appointment 2 weeks from now. Very helpful but pointless exercise. Unable to tell me what speed I should get for what I pay! Overall sympathize with customer service agent but after the test could not understand why loathe to send engineer. Seems to think something wrong with set up internally. However, same set up for last ten years and only discovered very slow speed when trying i-player and that kept buffering - has worked ok before. Sky are sending new filters and router cable. Fingers crossed or will be looking to switch but will give them a try.

    I am now using my third router supplied by Sky. I am signed up to high speed fibre which should give me a speed of up to 34 mbps. Best I have had is 29 and the lowest recently 18.
    I am tied in to an 18 month contract at half price, so at the moment it's not bad value. Basic Broadband was not good enough. When my contract terminates, I shall be looking elsewhere.
    An Open Reach engineer called and after much time spent messing with meters etc.said as far as he was concerned 34 was coming to the house and the rest was not his problem.
    Sky give lots of useless advice such as don't have the router near a mirror, a fish tank or in an old house with thick walls-none of which applies to me.
    It would be nice to subscribe to a company which would send somebody into your house to advise and check. Sky don't.

    Was happy enough when I was with Sky (TV, phone and broadband) although a bit costly. Had to change due to a rental move and they made it almost impossible to leave. Took me nearly 3 months of wrongfully sent texts and emails from Sky, numerous text chats and phone calls with customer services who all promised to sort out what was all a Sky mess and not my fault but they never did. Now I have completely unrelated email offers saying "come back to Sky" at half price of what I originally paid. So they clearly charge too much from their current customers when they can afford that :-(.

    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.

    Broadband was more reliable before going on fibre. Often cant even do the speed test.
