Now then, where were we? Oh yes. Sky Broadband Gigafast benefits!
The new package is 25x faster than the average speed of Sky’s Superfast 35 package and offers incredible speeds of 900 Mb/s. It also has a Speed Guarantee of 600 Mb/s, which basically means you can claim a month’s subscription back if your speed falls below the minimum average speed.
These impressive speeds come with no usage caps, meaning you can play multiplayer games direct from the cloud with low latency and no delays to your gaming experience. It also lets you quickly download games and buffer large game updates seamlessly. Plus, if your household is regularly watching movies or gaming online in multiple rooms at the same time, Gigafast can give you the freedom to stream and game on multiple devices wihout needing to kick anyone off.
And speaking of devices, Gigafast lets you connect more than 120 devices at the same time to its full fibre broadband. If you add up your devices that need a WiFi connection, be it your PC, consoles, phones, security cameras and other smart devices around your home, you probably have more than you thought! So if you and others in your home own a similar amount of devices, and plan to add new gadgets in the future, Gigafast has got you covered.
