Causes Of Slow Broadband

Let's check your connection

1) Your WiFi coverage

A lot of the time the issue isn't with your Sky service at all. It could in fact be down to the WiFi coverage around your property.

Do you find that it works well in some rooms but not in others? If so, that could be the problem. Check out how to improve your WiFi coverage.

2) Contact Sky Broadband support about your service

It's also quite possible there is a fault with your line or equipment. So, it's always best to get in touch with Sky customer service first as they can check over your service.

You've done all that - what other solutions exist?

So, you've made sure it's not your WiFi and you've spoken to Sky about your slow broadband. If they have confirmed that there's nothing they can do to improve this, then what are your options?

Well, your problem is almost certainly do do with your incoming landline. It'll either have degraded or you'll just be too far away from the cabinet serving your property.

However all is not lost. First, let's find out what speeds you're getting. Run a speed test below.

Remember those speeds as we'll come back to them.

So, if Sky just can't improve the slow broadband it's supplying you with, it's time to consider abandoning landline broadband and going wireless instead.

Introducing 4G broadband

4G broadband is a home internet service that uses the 4G network to provide a primary broadband connection instead of a fixed line. In other words, a wireless service.

This means that you won’t be dependent on your landline that just can’t deliver adequate internet speeds and instead you’ll be connected via a faster wireless service.

And what if you don't get good 4G signals in your area? Not a problem. Over the last few years, it’s been widely recognised that a wireless service like 4G broadband is by far the most cost-effective and quickest way to get fast internet to those areas most in need – which are typically more rural.

It’s true that rural locations often don’t have great 4G coverage, and that’s precisely why external high gain 4G antennas can be fitted to properties where necessary. These latch onto available 4G signals and amplify them, before piping them down to a router inside the home or business. The result? A fast and stable 4G broadband service, even where next to no signal is being shown on mobile phones.

Antenna Installation

Providing high quality broadband to rural locations is a service that we at National Broadband specialise in. And we’re so confident in what we do that we put our money where our mouth is with a full money back guarantee. So there's literally nothing to lose – but potentially a whole lot to gain.
