Sky Fibre Max is Sky’s fibre-optic broadband service, offering superfast download speeds and a consistent, reliable connection. Sky Fibre Max is competitively priced and you can bundle it with TV and Talk.
Sky's fibre broadband package is called Sky Fibre Max, and it offers superfast broadband with average download speeds of 63Mbps. Whilst speeds are not guaranteed due to external factors, you can be sure that you will get consistently quick downloads throughout the day.
Fibre-optic broadband makes data transfer much faster, which is essential for those who love to download and stream content. You aren’t frustrated by buffering or slow download times, and the technology means that speeds are much more consistent, as well as being closer to the advertised maximum.
Sky Fibre Max offers unlimited downloads, so there is no cap on your monthly usage. Any time you stream or download, or simply load a page, you are transferring data to your web-connected device, and with superfast broadband you’ll probably want to make the most it, so you’ll be online regularly. Unlimited downloads is a great benefit which provides excellent value for money with your fibre-optic broadband deal.
Your broadband speed through fibre is going to be much faster than anything experienced through the phone line-based ADSL service. Whilst your speed might change throughout the day, you will be much closer to the advertised maximum, and you will find much more consistency with the service.
Sky TV is a leading choice thanks to its groundbreaking sports coverage, huge selection of movies and range of quality entertainment channels. You can combine your Sky Fibre service with Sky TV for exclusive content, and you get Sky Talk for inclusive home calls.
Sky Broadband Superfast uses the fibre-optic network to deliver quicker, more reliable speeds to your home. There’s no cap on usage which makes it ideal for heavy internet users as you can download as much as you like without worrying about a monthly limit. There are some other impressive benefits included, such as the Sky Hub, and you can take it as a bundle with other services like Sky TV.
Sky Broadband Essential is provided using copper wire, and this is much slower than the fibre-optic network. However, it is still quick enough for those who do not demand too much from their internet, and with Sky you could expect 11Mbps on average. It may be slower than this in practice, because the amount of other users in the area, the time of day and your distance from the exchange.
With Sky Broadband Superfast you can enjoy much faster connectivity, and the advanced technology used allows for a more consistent download speed as well. You’ll still see varying speeds advertised from different providers offering fibre, but with Sky Broadband Superfast the average is 59Mbps.
Unlimited broadband means uncapped usage throughout the month. If there is a cap, such as 2GB, then you can download that amount in total, and that includes loading web pages and streaming video. It all contributes to your usage, so if you choose unlimited then you don’t have to worry about watching how much you browse and download from the web. With Sky you can get the Essential or Superfast broadband with unlimited usage, and you can bundle this with other Sky services.
