Not as simple as that I'm afraid you would need to configure it with your broadband details. This isn't particularly difficult and instructions are usually provided. If you are a bit of a tectarded though you might struggle
That's not a router, it just repeats/extends your default routers wi-fi signal.
Will this work in conjunction with a sky router to improve the absolute dross WiFi signal it provides.

This is a range extender, not a router, so you don't need any broadband details.

You will need to hook it up to your existing home network (if any old device could suddenly start carrying your wi-fi signals that'd be a huge security hole) but that shouldn't be any more complicated than connecting any other wi-fi device.

You can grab the manual from the netgear website if you'd like to check the installation instructions before buying.

Be aware that range extenders need to sit part of the way between the router and the notspot for best performance, sticking it in the dead zone itself won't work very well.

I wouldn't buy anything that specifically references iPads in its description. Dog whistle for boomer placebo tech.
Idiot alert over here

I have always used the routers provided by ISP’s but always wondered why bother buying a netgear one at a cost of £xx

Do they make a difference?
(My wifi is terrible and i have speeds of around 35mbps)

Think you are thinking of a replacement router. Which this isn't

I had a similar issue with my Virgin Hub and Google WiFi solved it - I assume you will get similar results with other mesh devices.

ISP provided routers are not usually very good with reference to WiFi range. They tend to be something like a Thompson or Zyxel and certainly not one of their top models. Some you would struggle to give away.

As an example my ISP provided routers was a Zyxel. Not sure of the model. Fibre direct to the house gives me 75mbps. Router placed in the living room. At the opposite side of the house and upstairs I was getting less than 1mbps. I bought a Netgear nighthawk R7000 on my son's advice and it upper the speed to 56mbps in the same bedroom.
Your right i am, just wanted some advice

For only a little extra (£59 currently), I'd get a Wi-Fi 'Mesh' system instead - an example is the Tenda Nova MW3 (3-pack): amazon.co.uk/dp/…637
I believe you can use it in one of two modes at least:
- repeater/extender to receive WiFi signal from your existing ISP router and broadcast a new stronger signal for extended distance
- access point: you feed it a wired connection to your ISP router and it broadcasts connectivity though its WiFi
Depending on the locations of the ISP router and where you can/intend to place this device it might be better to go with one option or the other (e.g. you might have your ISP router downstairs while have this boost the signal for upstairs)
But I'd rather experiment with turning off the WiFi completely on the router and use WiFi solely from the access point. This has the potential to provide consistent connectivity to a single access point and also should have lower latency (signal going through one wireless link and then through wired Ethernet would be faster than hopping over two wireless signals). I'm a bit biased towards not repeating WiFi signal and creating an interference mess
