Rachel Robinson asks: “Does anyone have sky broadband, if so what do you think of it, any good? I’ve got virgin at the minute but thinking of changing”
Have been with sky for 3 yrs now. Switched from Virgin that was always dropping out and slowing right down at peak time. I pay for the 38mbs sky fibre unlimited and i get exactly that. Constant speed all the time with no slowing down at peak times or dropping out. I live just about 50m from the fibre cabinet so it all depends how far your nearest one is located. Never had a problem or had to complain. I call Sky every year and barter a good discount.
We have sky fibre. Have no issues and a fab service. Never drops out or slows down.
Do you need speed and reliability, or is it a cost thing? If Sky (or any other suppliers) could supply the speed, we’d go to them as they’re a bit cheaper. 🤔
We too have Sky broadband, phone etc. Swapped from BT. No issues with Sky, but lots with BT!! Like the suggestion of calling each year to negotiate a discount – will give that a try!
We have sky and have no problems at all
Personally….I’d stick with virgin. There is none of this ‘speeds up to xxmb/s’ nonsense. It just delivers ridiculous speeds with very little fuss (in my case 380mb/s download, 21mb/s upload)
Sky uses BT….BT run an old network. Even their latest fibre effort can only offer ‘up to’ 50/80ish mb/s at a push.
I have Virgin Media, I have had Sky before but that was before it became fibre and went back to Virgin Media because it was the best internet speed for my location in Raunds and I shall never change again.
Don’t bother, get a Plug in box and setup Kodi 😜
Found no problems at all with sky
Sky all good
I’ve got 80mb but with three kids an two adults streaming I have never reached two thirds of its capacity, Even 2 x HD streaming is way down the scale, why we all need faster is beyond me, I used to install / repair BT, Sky and hundreds that most people haven’t even heard of. If you’re happy with the service and cost surely that’s enough
I have 80mb and need more 😛 Waiting for Virgin to cable up to our street 😉
Virgin Media in Raunds is pants. We had it and had endless issues with disturbance and losing picture quality as for the broadband so slow! !
