What is the difference between Essential, Superfast and Gigafast?

Sky Broadband Essential Plus is Sky’s traditional standard broadband service. Otherwise known as ADSL. This is supplied via a fixed phone line into your home and the cost of which is included in the listed monthly cost.

Sky Superfast and Gigafast are fibre services. With Superfast Broadband the signal is sent to you through your nearest telephone exchange using a fibre connection. From there the signal is relayed to homes via a fixed traditional landline. That is why you still need a landline to access Sky Superfast Fibre Broadband services. The cost of Sky landline is also included in the listed monthly prices for Fibre services (i.e. this is not an additional cost). Sky’s Gigafast Plus broadband is an FTTP service, this means that your signal is supplied via a fibre optic cable direct to your home.

Regarding fixed line services; If you need a landline installing at your home, then Sky will arrange for an engineer visit. This costs as little as £20 and is one of the cheapest installation prices for a new line in the UK. You can find out if you need a new line or an old one reactivating by using the postcode checker. The Sky system will look at your address and advise if this is required. Any additional cost is outlined in your basket prior to checkout, so you are aware of the total cost before you proceed.
