*Average speeds are based on the download speeds of at least 50% of customers at peak time(8pm to 10pm). Speed can be affected by a range of technical and environmental factors. The speed you receive where you live may be lower than that listed above. You can check the estimated speed to your property prior to purchasing.

Sky broadband packages
The type of broadband you go for really depends on what kind of user you are. For example, if you only use the web to check your e-mails from time to time, a standard, ADSL broadband will be sufficient.
That said, if you spend a lot of time playing games online or you stream a lot of movies, then you’ll want the fastest speed possible. To that end, a fibre package will be your best bet. Below, we’ve listed all of Sky’s broadband packages, and what they have to offer:
- Broadband Essential - Although Broadband Essential doesn’t provide the fastest speeds, it’s ample for browsing the web and downloading the odd programme on demand. Plus, it’s a fair bit cheaper than a fast fibre optic package.
- Broadband Superfast - Similar to Fibre Unlimited, Broadband Superfast offers average speeds of up to a super-quick 59Mb. It’s perfect for hardcore gamers maintaining lots of data-hungry activities like streaming music.
