What is Sky Gigafast?
Sky Gigafast is the provider’s latest, and fastest, broadband connection. It offers impressive average download speeds of 900Mbps - enough for even the biggest households of avid gamers and other heavy internet users. In fact, there’s not many providers that can beat these speeds, apart from perhaps Virgin Media.
It’s average upload speeds of 100Mbps are also the fastest that Sky currently offers. But while this might not seem like much when compared to the average download speed, this should be more than enough for most people.
It will currently set you back £55 per month, which for a broadband-only package, certainly isn’t cheap. But when you consider the lightning-fast speeds, and then compare it to similar deals from other providers, you’ll soon work out that it’s not so much of a bad deal after all.

Can I get Sky Gigafast in my area?
Unfortunately, Sky Gigafast isn’t available across the whole of the UK yet. This is because it uses Openreach’s full fibre network, which is still in development. Currently, it is estimated that only around a quarter of the UK has access to Sky Gigafast.
