Advantages: Easy to set up
Disadvantages: None at the moment - surely something must go wrong soon
From ordering to installation getting Sky Broadband has been an absolute breeze.
I ordered Sky for our new flat through a cashback website, so I had already reduced the overall cost for the year as I am due £100 cashback over the next 12 months, but with a special offer of reduced broadband charges and line rental for a little over £17 per month, unlimited downloads, a 12 month contract, a free router, free line installation and free evening and weekend calls how could i refuse.
The order process was extremely easy: check you can get Sky then order it. The website allows you to check on the progress of your order as well as reschedule your installation date (if required). The installation guy (it was outsourced to another company) was friendly and helpful, and even let me know what he was doing, which most people wouldn't bother with but i'm inquisitive. The router arrived before it was scheduled and I was up and running a full 3 days before the stated activation date.
The first few days started off with a relatively slow speed, approximately 2mb, but this has been stabilised and i'm now getting around 8-10mb, at the top end of the estimated speeds Sky had estimated. Presumably this will change as traffic management rules come into effect, but at the moment I really can't complain!
Summary: So easy from start to finish i'm even recommending to my parents
