Sky Broadband releases its most powerful WiFi yet

Tuesday 11 July 2023

Sky Broadband has today unveiled WiFi Max, its most powerful WiFi package yet. Ideal for modern connected homes, it comes with the next generation Max Hub, which uses WiFi 6 technology to provide reliable WiFi that travels faster and further than ever before. This is backed by the UK’s fastest WiFi guarantee, of any major provider, as well as the UK’s most advanced network security. 

Available to add now for new and existing Sky Broadband customers from just £10 per month. It comes with a WiFi Guarantee of up to 25Mbps, meaning customers will be able to stream in Ultra HD, game and work in every room, or get their money back. 

Sky Broadband’s most powerful hub 

The new Max Hub uses intelligent cloud optimisation to give users the best and smoothest connection yet, adapting and evolving the flow of traffic to each device, offering stronger and more reliable WiFi coverage wherever customers are at home. 

It’s the perfect partner for streaming products like Sky Stream and Sky Glass, which also use WiFi 6 technology to enable buffer free entertainment. 

Amber Pine, Managing Director, Broadband and Connectivity, Sky Broadband, said:    

“A modern, busy household needs WiFi to be more powerful and more reliable than ever, so customers can stream, game, or use multiple devices at once without any hassle. With WiFi Max’s speed guarantee of up to 25mps in every room, customers can relax knowing time online will be seamless, safe and without stress.” 

Stay protected online with maximum security 

WiFi Max offers advanced security, protecting every device connected to the network. From smart doorbells and cameras to your personal laptops and mobiles, everything is protected by the latest in artificial intelligence to detect and block threats. All connected devices are monitored in real time to alert customers to security threats as they happen via the MySky App. This is the UK’s most advanced network security from a major broadband provider. 

More control over WiFi 

WiFi Max offers customers more control over WiFi usage in the home. Devices can be organised on the MySky App, and WiFi access to individual devices instantly paused with the tap of a button, from anywhere.  
For families, the intuitive MySky app allows parents to easily schedule in WiFi breaks to help with time away from screens, leaving more room for family time. 

Built for Entertainment 

Customers can stream and game with ease in Ultra HD in any room of the home, when combining WiFi Max with Ultrafast Broadband.  Up to three free Max Pods are available that can, if required, extend WiFi coverage so that every corner of the house is covered. 

As well as this, WiFi Max customers also get access to WiFi engineer visits where needed – meaning they can get a call-out at a time that suits them, even at evenings and weekends. 

Max hubs are easily set up at home, with the MySky App allowing for easy connection to all devices.
