On offer almost everywhere

Like several other broadband providers, Sky installs its own equipment in BT 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 in order to get online.

Frequently asked questions

What if I can’t get Sky broadband?

As Sky broadband runs on the BT Openreach network, it is unlikely that you won't be able to get it. You can check what is available in your area here.

Alternatives to Sky standard broadband

If you can't get standard broadband with Sky, then it is unlikely you will be able to get standard broadband or fibre broadband with any other provider. The exception is a Virgin Media fibre connection, since Virgin runs on its own network, separate from BT.

If neither standard broadband nor Virgin Media are options for you, then your best bet is to look at alternative methods of delivery such as mobile broadband, satellite broadband or fixed wireless broadband.

Can I get Sky broadband without Sky TV?

Yes, although if you want a TV package, taking broadband and TV in a bundle will offer the best value. If you just take Sky broadband, you won't need a Sky dish on your property.

Equally, you do not need Sky broadband to get Sky TV. You can get Sky TV without any broadband at all, although you will not be able to access any of the catch up or on demand services.

Can I get Sky broadband without line rental?

No, Sky broadband runs on BT phone lines so you have to pay line rental whether you want to have a landline or not.
