Sky has launched its fastest broadband package to date – with speeds around 25 times faster than the average Sky broadband speed.
The new Sky Broadband Gigafast The offering brings customers a whopping 900Mbps (megabits per second), which is well above average broadband speeds, which are typically around 50Mbps, according to Ofcom’s 2021 report.
Although you’ll whiz through life, it doesn’t come cheap, as you’ll need to shell out £55 a month to take advantage of its ultra-fast speeds.
However, if you have a busy household with several people streaming box sets on Netflix, making WhatsApp video calls, filming TikToks, and downloading software updates to different devices, it’s definitely worth investing in faster broadband so you can surf without interruptions to stay connected.
Sky Broadband Gigafast, £55
With download speeds of up to 900Mbps, this all-fiber upgrade unlocks the fastest broadband speeds we’ve seen from Sky Broadband. If you want to banish buffering – no matter how many people in your house watch 4K boxsets and blockbusters, this is the broadband plan for you.
Luckily, Sky also offers a 600Mbps speed guarantee, which means you can reclaim a month’s subscription if your speed falls below that level – we’re sold!
According to Sky, the new package is aimed at busy households where several people use many devices for intensive activities.
“Sky Broadband Gigafast offers WiFi-hungry households the ability to connect many devices at the same time,” said Sky’s Aman Bhatti.
Aman described the speeds as “groundbreaking”.
And he said they’re up to 25 times faster than a standard Sky connection – which translates to around 36 Mb/s.
According to Sky, you can connect over 120 devices at the same time.
Gigafast joins the Sky Broadband family with a range of fiber packages including:
- Super fast 35 – 36 Mbit/s
- Super fast – 59Mbps
- Ultra Fast – 145Mbps
- Ultra-fast plus – 500 Mbit/s
- Gigafast – 900Mbps
The catch is that it’s an all-fiber package, so you’ll only get the speeds if you live somewhere on the property with fiber-optic broadband.
If you want to go one step further to ensure high speeds, you can add Sky Broadband Boost.
This is a £5 per month package that guarantees you minimum speeds plus Wi-Fi coverage in every room.
Sky Gigafast costs £55 a month for an 18-month contract, with a £10 activation fee. The new package is available from today at the same price for new and existing customers.
