Can I get Sky broadband in my area?

Monday, February 24th 2014

Before you sign up to Sky broadband, you’ll need to find out if you can access the service, and our availability checker lets you do just that.

Sky is a broadband industry leader, reaching more than 16 million UK households with its fibre optic and standard broadband services. That’s quite a few homes, so let’s see if yours is one of them.

Postcode checker

It’s easy to find out if you can get Sky. Simply enter your postcode into the box below and click the big green button. We’ll then take you to a separate page and tell you if you can get Sky, what your average download speed will be, and what other providers you can get in your area. If you enter your home phone number, we’ll be able to tell you if you can get Sky’s fibre optic service, too.

Check availability

Everywhere – almost

Like several other broadband providers, Sky installs its own equipment in telephone exchanges around the country, enabling it to reach around 99% of the UK population. However, if you are outside certain areas you will have to pay extra to use a service called Sky Broadband Connect to get online.

What if I can’t get Sky broadband?

If you can’t get Sky broadband in your area, then you should check other providers. The options are laid out in our guide, ‘Broadband in my area’.

However, if you can’t get fixed line broadband in any form, you still have options in the form of mobile broadband and satellite broadband.

However, if you’d like us to email you when Sky fibre broadband comes to your area, you can sign up for our free broadband availability alerts. This is a completely free service, and we won’t share your information with anyone else.

Hi Samba

Yes you'll need a BT landline to receive Sky broadband. You can check availability by using the postcode checker at the top of this page.

I was coming to sky for a line, fibre bb and multiroom tv bundle from bt, the agent in a shopping centre couldn't place my order to retain my number and without me knowing ordered a new line on 12/11/12 subsequently losing my bt number forever! Sky kept advising the were struggling with the bb order until the tv was installed (wires and holes all over my house) externally and 2 internal, that afternoon they told me sky cannot provide me with fibre bb or broadband of any kind and suggested I get broadband from another provider, like BT. I now have a massive bill for the tv as my lack of bb means the offered have been removed. BT can provide line and BT Infinity on 10/12/12. The cost of my sky tv and bt line and bb is astronomical, what can I do none of this is my fault, I've been conned!
