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.
