My daughter has gone with Sky broadband in her student house. Used samknows first to check for local providers, and then decided on Sky. All three users in the house are wireless on the router supplied by Sky. It's only a terraced house, but the signal and speed has been very good. Don't think any of them are into gaming, but they use catch up TV and no complaints so far.
Came across this today ... some voucher codes for sky ... might be useful ...
SKY Offer Codes | Sky TV Offer Code - Sky Voucher Codes & Vouchers
Oh, yes forgot to mention those. And don't forget to go through quidco/topcashback. Got 150 cashback within 3 months on mine plus a 75 quid marks & sparks voucher.
I was too late for the voucher coded site but managed to get my parents to introduce me so should get £75 M&S voucher :)
I'm impressed so far, love the Sky+ HD box and the android Sky+ app, just need to wait a few days for my broadband to be activated. Cheers all :)
DONT! Sky broaband has given us nothing but problems since we moved over from Tiscali (Now a part of Talk Talk). We constantly get disconnected from the Internet (often or not more than once at night and often several times!), the Internet is slow and the wireless coverage on the Sky router is pants. We are on our second router (both Sagem's) and it's made no difference. We are thinking of dumping them and moving to a rival as we had no problems with Tiscali and we could use our own kit on Tiscali.
Each to their own, and mileages will vary, @JonThompson - for instance, you're moving to Tiscali...
That's enough said for a good many, many people.
On a second note, I went to set a PC up at a friends house and they have Sky broadband and have the exact same problems as us with it constantly dropping out...
elsiegee40 I've thought about the fibre upgrade as well. Once it happens, any chance you can let me know what it is like
You only hear the bad, not the good. My Sky connection is solid and the people I speak to have been brilliant when required. A level of service I haven't had since Nildram & Pipex before they were thoroughly broken (bought out and commercialised).
And it's not always their fault - BT still are responsible for a majority of the gubbins inbetween regardless if you're LLU or not.
I love my Sky adsl, great speeds, only dropped out once for about 30 mins, boggo wireless router covers all the area I need it to, quite often have 6 devices running from it, Netflix etc and it just works.
i have had sky fibre for about a month now, speeds are fantastic, consistent 38 down 10 up! would recommend to anyone who can get it
also would recommend using sky chat for problems/queries, had a couple of questions about install ect and they where very helpful
Well the deal is done Jon so I'll hope to have a better story than yours. Thanks for the reply though it's good to hear all sides but I don't think it can be much worse that what I've received from BT and the Homehub 2 :)
