What broadband speeds can I get with Sky?

There are six different broadband options to choose from, ranging from ADSL connections through to ultrafast ‘Full Fibre’. Sky uses the Openreach network for its fibre broadband, so not all speeds are available to all households. You can check what’s available to your property with Sky directly, or you can look at the latest fibre and ‘Full Fibre’ roll out information here.

The six Sky Broadband choices are:

  • Sky Broadband Essential Plus – has average download speeds of 11Mbps and is meant for casual browsing and email.
  • Sky Broadband Superfast 35 – has average download speeds of 36Mbps and can suit small to medium households for browsing, streaming and gaming.
  • Sky Broadband Superfast – one of the most-popular choices, this has average download speeds of 59-61Mbps and is a dependable choice for households with high streaming and downloads.
  • Sky Broadband Ultrafast – if you want to do lots of streaming, gaming and browsing without interruption, this fibre broadband has average download speeds of 145Mbps.
  • Sky Broadband Ultrafast Plus – this 500Mbps connection requires ‘Full Fibre’ but it can allow multiple users to stream in UHD, make video calls, game and download all at once.
  • Sky Broadband Gigafast – this is Sky’s fastest ‘Full Fibre’ with an average download speed of 900+Mbps. You can also stream in UHD, game in 4k, make video calls and depend on what Sky calls its ‘future proof broadband for the busiest homes’.

What TV add-ons are available from Sky?

Whether you’re purchasing a TV package or a TV and broadband bundle through Sky, you’ll typically be offered the chance to add additional entertainment ‘packs’.

The available packs will of course be determined by what’s already included in your chosen deal. However, it’s important to note that some extra channels might not be available with certain promotions and deals. Also, if you do choose to add another pack, it will likely add to your monthly costs, so make sure you check this first before you agree to any.

That said, you do get quite a lot of TV channels without any add-ons. To see for yourself you can take a look at the latest listings across all Sky's TV packages here.

In addition to the standard TV package, these are the four most popular packs Sky customers tend to select:

  • Sky Sports
  • Sky Cinema
  • Sky Kids
  • BT Sport

You can also pick or upgrade your TV package at a later stage - and in some cases other streaming services, including subscriptions to Disney+ and Paramount Plus. 

Sky also gives opportunities to add a better viewing experience with these bundles. This can come in the form of upgrading the screen quality to HD and/or Ultra HD and you can have the ability to have this function across multiple TVs in your home. These options can essentially be bolted on at additional cost to your monthly price.
