superfast...


I wouldn't go that far. It's fast not that super
Is sky fibre any good? I’m currently with virgin broadband only, paying £35, flawless service
I left Virgin fiber due to very poor speed, now with Sky fiber for 6 months with no regrets.
Not better than broadband choice's Vodafone deal. Which gives £130 back and £20 to £23 depends if you are an existing customer or not

Maybe not price wise but Vodafone for me was horrendous and customer service was worse than horrendous. Just my honest review... others may be luckier but you are definitely gonna need luck it if things start going a little pear shaped.

Connect new router to sky. Turn DHCP off the sky router off. That's what I have done. What issues are you having?

What make & model is the third-party router?
Using a Netgear D7000v2 here with Sky, no problems - took me 10mins to setup.

It's the D-Link 890L. Been at this for bloody days, someone on the D-Link forum said no go due to sky and MER authentication?

Cheers SVG, I'll give that a go...

I think they could be right, but doing what Svg suggests should work.
Also available to existing customers at the end of their contact. Just renewed. Never had an issue with sky fibre. Was looking to move to plus net but then they put the price up to £27 so just renewed with sky.
What's this "pricing may change during contract period" all about?

How do you have your configuration wired. Are you running a 3rd party router through the sky router?

Which router is it?

I've got the Netgear rb50 mesh. Surely you should plug the new router into sky and then connect everything to the new router and it should work. You can assign a static IP from sky router for the new router.

What part are you struggling with?
Thanks

You get double NAT doing it that way which can cause issues with gaming and consoles.

That's the only way with sky routers unless you want to replace sky router. They apparently support a very weird NAT protocol which is hard to find. I am on double NAT at the moment and haven't really been told off by the gamers in the house....

He might get sky to point DMZ at the new router but that might be a bit risky.

I use an openreach modem with a Ubiquiti Edgerouter X and works fine, it is true that sky uses MER authentication (dhcp option 61) which a lot of consumer routers don’t support so options are limited but not impossible.

Ubiquiti might be a bit much for average user

I thought about getting in it but couldn't be asked and the entry cost was a bit much.

It's the D-Link 890L. Been trying to use it standalone rather than through the original sky router but MER is messing it up by the looks of things. Might give dd-wrt a whizz and see if that has options to get me up and running. Here's hoping!!

I'm paying £23 for 100MB. It's worth negotiating when your contract is up for renewal, they're very stubborn but finally give in if you're more stubborn than they are. I'd stick with Virgin simply because it's, like you said, flawless.

Yeah. They have to inform you of price increase via email or letter within 30 days. You do have the right to leave the contract (i believe) without penalty if they do not contact you though, or (i may be confused) you may have the option to leave contract without penalty even if they have wrote/emailed you about price increase. Don’t quote me on it though.

It’s all luck really I’m paying £17pm for 3 4g broadband and I get solid 45mbps at peak time and then 70mbps off peak.

Was paying £26 a month for 50mbps virgin and I cancelled and the best they could offer me was £24 100mbps but couldn’t put up with their customer services
I had sky unlimited fibre for £27pm and was due to go up next month to £38.99pm

Went through the mysky app to cancel and there is an option to upgrade and stay on for superfast fibre for £25pm

I'm not no clever on canceling and timing new internet to start but I was getting between 26mbps and 34mbps but with this new internet I get a solid 68mbps flat line. No going up and down when testing.

Also a offer for internet booster for £2pm and solid signal in every room or money back


Hope this helps

guessing its the same as the tv - I've had them jump the price 2 or 3 times I have stared annual contracts with them. the moment the year is up I have cancelled every time - then a month later i got a letter offering half price, you take hte half price and then they spike it more than half way through. I obviously have not paid for sky again in the last 10+ years.

Any price increase requires a notice of 30 days and the consumer has the right to cancel the contract without penalty. However, providers have started adding a clause when signing up that if the increase is in line with the RPI increase, then contract breakage is not available. So please read the T&C carefully.

In the past, the timing of most price increases was more or less stable (Plusnet around May-June, BT late summer, etc) so I used to sign up during the Christmas sale, collect the cashback and then leave in 8-10 months without penalty after the price increase notice was received. Made the overall service very cheap, if not free. Not possible any more.

it’s as if these multi-million/billion £ companies don’t make enough money from us without tying us into contracts when we have a right to leave but no they find a loophole as always.
It's a shame can only get Virgin fibre on my street. BT Openreach have no intention or plans to make my streets or nearby ones fibre ready. Want thousands off us!
