Agreed; SKY broadband is getting to be almost unusable. Was fairly fast for first year, then slowed right up. Had six months of slow speeds and loss of connection for at least a day every week. A Rip Off.

“An utter farce from the beginning”

Written on: 12/12/2013

After carefully weighing up my options I decided that I would give Sky a go, and I'm sorry to say that I wished I hadn't. I cannot comment on the reliability or the speed of Sky broadband as well over two weeks after signing up with them I'm still without a service. The sign-up procedure was quick and easy, but that's where the good points end. Firstly, it took over a week to get an engineer out. When he did arrive, he started to set up before saying that he had to pop out briefly. Three and a… Read Full Review

“Fast and easy to deal with costumer service”

Written on: 02/12/2013 by Marcio45 (1 review written)

Putting things into perspective, before taking tv and broadband to sky nearly an year ago I was with Virgin media, with so many problems and so my expectations of costumer service were really low. Had nearly a year of almost perfectly working service from sky until my broadband speed suddendly dropped a few weeks back. It wasn't a massive issue as I still had a stable connection but today I decided to do something about it. I got in contact with sky on the online chat. I explained the issue… Read Full Review

“Sky broadband, TV and phone package”

Written on: 24/11/2013 by JWV529N (19 reviews written)

In hindsight I've have purchased this elsewhere. Engineer fitted the dish but was not neat and tidy and I had to make him re-run the cables down edge of wall rather than middle and he had a bad attitude. TV works well but to get the good channels would be very expensive such as movies and sports. Phone line is fine. Broadband is average and not always reliable. They made mistakes with our bill and overcharged us and its costing more than expected, be careful about what you sign up for… Read Full Review

“Nothing has changed!”

Written on: 21/11/2013

Well I applied for the Sky package - tv, phone and broadband on 2nd October. I am still awaiting broadband connection as I write today (21/11/13). In comparison my son very recently applied for Virgin broadband and was up and running 10 days later. I had an equally appalling experience with Sky many years ago trying to get broadband and finally gave up, going to another provider so should have known better. However all these years on, I stupidly assured myself that it must have changed and got… Read Full Review

“Tried to leave Sky. They made it impossible.”

Written on: 12/11/2013 by nikki38 (1 review written)

Was fed up with paying so much for Sky TV and decided to dump TV, calls and broadband at the same time. Where to start? (Line is BT). Was told I didn't need a Mac code to move to Plusnet as they didn't hold the line; accepted them at their word - big mistake. So eventually they cancelled everything for a month ahead and I felt good, for a while. Signed up to Plusnet without trouble, but they wanted/needed the Mac code. Called Sky - can't do it because we are in the process of closing the… Read Full Review

“Slow internet”

Written on: 28/10/2013 by Thatisjustwhatithink (1 review written)

Don't ever use sky internet. When I'm using the internet and my brother is online on the play station it freezes everyone now we have to decide who will use the internet at what time. Was with aol and has no complaints but thought I'd try sky because of the offer and I regret it. Since the brought out their super fast broadband they have significantly reduced the speed of there normal interest plan. It's just a scan to make u buy their "fast broadband". Very disappointing… Read Full Review

“Huge problems cancelling - sky breach their own T&C,s”

Written on: 16/10/2013 by Edfellows (2 reviews written)

Trying to cancel sky is a nightmare. Sky lists four methods to cancel in their terms and conditions. But try to use one of the methods other than a call on their premium rate number, and they don't accept your notice. Instead you get directed to call. Then you are kept on the line for costly phone call at your expense while they try to persuade you not to cancel. Then they agree to cancel as long as you accept that it is several days since you canceled. If you point this out they get stroppy… Read Full Review

“Stay away from Sky like the plague! ”

Written on: 13/10/2013

The worst broadband company ever, terrible customer service, all they do is run you around in circles trouble shooting the same procedures , nothing gets fixed. Connection drops ever 2 min, and its like this for days with no help from sky. Im going to report them to ofcom, they are taking peoples money and not providing a service. They also tricked me into a contract, they said if I got a new router the problem would be fixed, but in return I would be getting into a new 12 month contract. Guess… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/10/2013 by kritialla (2 reviews written)

Hi, I have a problem with the SKY Broad band speed. Problem is my Internet is intermediately stopping and Performance is terrible and I called 5 times to the customer service, but nothing happened. Every time they we will observe for 24 Hours and inspite of the net down they say it is working and they close my ticket on there own. Very rude and careless attitude to the existing customer. Don't go Sky. Sky is waste in service. And more point, when you want to a add some channel its not as… Read Full Review

“Communication Equipment does not belong to Sky”

Written on: 11/10/2013

The trouble I am experiencing is that SKY are happy enough to take my money every month (and periodically increasing the bill for lame reasons) but when I called to explain that my broadband had gone really slow, they advised the equipment at the exchange is not theirs (belongs to BT)and couldnt do anything about it. The Customer Services chap then went on to say that I was at the furthest point from the exchange and would not receive a great bandwidth anyway. I decided at that point, it was… Read Full Review

“Cant fix faults”

Written on: 09/10/2013 by Helter (1 review written)

If you had asked me six months ago I would have given Sky at least a 4 star rating. They have given me solid internet for years and any problems usually got sorted within a day. However, now we have a packet loss and line drop issue that has been dragging on for 5 months. Three visits from OpenReach, several line tests (the line signal is excellent) and profile updates and innumerable diagnostics tests with the support crew has only resulted in more bulldung. I was told the router was the… Read Full Review

I just got of the phone after 3 hours of advisors hanging up and constant rubbish...I say we all join up and start an online petition...I am uploading a telephone conversation with sky to YouTube and you will here the advisor contradict themselves and then hang up feeling we going in circles. have been played a full and now sky claim I never rang over the past6 months to complain bout the fibre. the say the 5 boxes I have are not on their system and they have no proof of me calling in so they will not refund any money for failed service. so how di I get these boxes I asked them and then the hung up again....mmmmm

“SkyBroadband Phillipines terrible performance, poor...”

Written on: 07/10/2013

Hi Everyone, I have been living in the Philippines for 7 years. For quite some time I used PLDT myDSL, which delivered pretty much what it promised. I had a few outages each year but they were usually fixed within 72 hours of reporting. Then I switched to SkyBroadband... At first it seemed OK, then I noticed poor performance in the evening. Turns out that there are a lot of dropped packets in the evening time... It did not take me long to realize that during peak times Sky had overloaded the… Read Full Review

“Pie in the Sky”

Written on: 01/10/2013

Forced to move by O2 abandoning its long standing customers and shipping us to the Monopoly board owned by Sky. Customer services virtually non existent. Chalk n' cheese compared with O2. Speeds slow, drops connection for hours and hours on end. "help tool" so patronising its unreal - and doesn't work! Makes BT look reasonable! Wish I had an alternative!!!… Read Full Review

I switched from Sky to Plusnet. Not only did Sky delay the order resulting in me having to pay another month, a day after they charged me for another months service, they cut me off. This was three days before the due cut off date. Avoid Sky!… Read Full Review
